This film & theatrical make up course is our most intensive programme we offer. Apart from being a very popular one, we have been running this hair & make up training module since the inception of CB*MA. Christine has designed all our courses to include the core skills you will need to become an excellent hair & make up trainee.
A few congratulations are in order to our latest graduates: Mariana and Nadine for starting work on “Into the Woods.” Liz, Helen and Ruby for beginning work on Brad Pitt’s new film “Fury.” And Scarlett and Oonagh for getting to work on the new film “Pride,”
A well done to all our graduates who are working on some great projects. Too many to mention. Click here to read testimonials.
Due to popular demand our next taster course is on the 25th and 26th of January 2014.
MAKE UP COURSES LONDON – FILM & TV MAKEUP
To succeed in your career as a film and TV makeup artist you will need real drive and commitment, and at the Chistine Blundell Academy for Film & Television in London (CB*MA) we promise to reward that commitment by offering our industry-leading training courses and the support needed to realise your goals.
The Film & TV industry is an exacting and demanding one, but there are few industries that are ultimately as rewarding and fun as a life spent behind the scenes on a film and TV set helping to bring stories to life on the silver screen (or indeed the plasma screen!).
As long as there have been movie stars, there have have been make up artists making them look good. From the ability to make an actor appear ‘natural’ while on camera, to the ability to transform an actor completely with special effects makeup, the Film & TV makeup artist has long been a treasured part of the entertainment industry as a whole. Part art, part science, the discipline of Film & TV makeup is a wondrous craft where gifted individuals use the infinitely malleable palette of the human face and body to bring dreams into reality.
LEARN FILM & TV MAKEUP FROM OSCAR & BAFTA WINNER, CHRISTINE BLUNDELL
Our professional London makeup academy is unique in the UK, in being founded by an Oscar and BAFTA Award-winning Hair and Makeup Designer, Christine Blundell. When you join the CB*MA family you will benefit not only from Christine Blundell’s years of top flight experience in theatre and films, including Casino Royal and Sherlock Holmes, but also from the vast network of media and entertainment contacts she has nurtured.
Beyond the glamour of Hollywood and award ceremonies, Chris remains a dedicated Makeup Designer, committed to the furtherance of her profession. The establishment of the Christine Blundell Make-Up Academy in 2006, was the natural progression in her mission to enhance industry standards and provide the gold standard for hair and makeup skills in the film, TV and theatre industries. Since then the school has gone from strength to strength, developing an unrivalled reputation for producing highly skilled professionals. There is a real buzz of excitement at our lively studios, where film, TV and Theatre jobs are planned and prepped. What better way to learn, than to work alongside an Academy Award winner and other notable hair and makeup professionals?
All Graduating students are given the opportunity to join Christine on set, to gain valuable film experience immediately after completing their course. This is offered as part of our aftercare system, where we work with you to support your new career.
Christine is at present working on Mike Leigh’s film about 18th Century artist William Turner, starring Timothy Spall. This year she has completed work on Danny Boyle’s Trance, I Give It a Year for Dan Mazer, and The Fifth Estate starring Benedict Cumberbatch.
The reason why we extended the three month syllabus is to allow the student more time to develop their period hair and make up skills; this is indispensible knowledge for any makeup artist. You will be entering the world of period films and TV dramas, learning the importance of research and historical knowledge, not to mention continuity.
The longest hair & makeup course at the Academy, it allows time to develop your own style and understand that the devil is in the detail; giving you time to establish your confidence and build characters yourself. Only at this Makeup Academy are award-winning experts in the theatre, film & TV industry on hand, not just to teach but advise and help throughout your time here. Remember, this care does not end when your course ends, but continues…
