Crew for the hair and make-up department are in huge demand across the UK’s booming film and television industries. This 26-week (March to September 2020) course aims to take graduate students and give them further specialist hair and make-up training, as well as preparing them for the specific rigours of working within the film and television industries.
It is taught by industry professionals and includes work placements on active film or TV sets.
The course has been created in response to increased demand for hair and make-up specialists on UK-based productions, with the role identified by the BFI and ScreenSkills as an ‘in demand’ skill-set across film and high-end television production.
Students will study with University Centre Leeds. With the support of delivery partner the National Film and Television School, they will take part in two ‘boot camps’ designed to prepare them for the specific requirements of Hair and Make-Up crew in film and TV, such as their role within a department, the way departments interact with other departments during production, set etiquette and preparation for freelance life (including tax, invoicing and networking).
They will also receive valuable Health & Safety Production Passport training.
