July topic: Hair & Makeup for Film with Alicia George

Being a hair and makeup artist for film and television isn’t as simple as making someone look good on camera. You need to have a fundamental understanding of the filmmaking process, including lighting, camera angles, scene-to-scene continuity, and how to organize a style plan based on each characters needs and progression. Join professional hair and make-up artist Alicia George (Space Warriors, Losers Take All) as she discusses these and several other important topics including set etiquette, working with actors, creating a portfolio, and more. Alicia will also have a live hair and make-up demonstration to give a sample of the craft that goes into achieving a proper cinematic look.

Alicia George has provided hair and makeup services for dozens of films and music videos and has worked with actors and celebrities such as Justin Timberlake, Morgan Freeman, Mira Sorvino, Danny Glover, Sarah Drew, Grace Zabriskie, Josh Lucas, Tia Mowry, and many more.
