The Special Effects Makeup Artist

Also referred to as an SFX Makeup Artist, 特效化妆师的工作是通过使用假肢和化妆来改变演员. They utilize a variety of makeup techniques to create wounds, abrasions, 或者演员身上的伤疤——有时会把演员变成怪物, aliens, and a variety of other characters.  特效化妆师是化妆部门的一员,与化妆部门负责人一起工作,以实现电影所需的外观.

During prep, 特效化妆师将阅读剧本并进行研究, planning for special makeup looks and what kind of makeup supplies, equipment, 或者将需要工具来实现一个演员的适当的外观,也符合导演对项目的愿景. After breaking down the script, 他们将设计造型,并与制作人讨论化妆效果,以及需要什么样的预算才能有效地实施这些效果. 

SFX化妆师可能会在这一点上与演员见面,以获得关于外观的反馈,以及它是否舒适——特别是如果一个外观需要大量的假肢,甚至是一件紧身衣. If they have an opportunity to practice the looks beforehand, 这将帮助他们计划拍摄期间需要多少时间才能达到预期的效果. 

Depending on the project, SFX化妆师可在化妆部主管之前或之后聘用, 但在整个前期制作和制作过程中,保持良好的沟通是必要的,以确保团队的积极性,并确保整个部门保持在制作预算之内. Sometimes, the Producers on a film will budget specifically for Makeup Effects, which may change department hierarchy and communication channels. 

Each day, 特效化妆师会坐在他们的拖车里,开始按照当天的时间表制作特效造型. 他们会尽他们所能,让演员在使用特效化妆时感到舒适的环境, particularly as the process could take multiple hours to complete. While this reduces stress on the actor, 它还需要与广告部门沟通,询问他们需要多少时间来准备拍摄的外观.

如果他们时间紧迫或需要同时与多个角色合作, SFX艺术家可以为一个演员做假肢或特效,而另一个部门, such as the production design department, helps complete the special effects look on another actor. 连续性照片有助于确保每天拍摄的设计看起来都一样. 特效化妆师将保证他们的设计在拍摄前达到他们的期望. 

 

What’s the Special Effects Makeup Artist good at? 

Communication: SFX化妆师需要倾听和清楚地与团队沟通,了解需要什么才能达到最好的特效化妆. This will help the makeup department as a whole.  

 

Flexible: 因为特效化妆师要和不同部门的人合作, 为了有效地与他人合作,他们必须对关于自己设计的反馈和想法持开放态度. 

 

Collaborative: SFX化妆师必须愿意与部门以及演员谈论他们的设计. 这将有助于确保演员穿着舒适,而且他们不需要花很多时间在演员身上——这将有助于保持拍摄进度,并在制作预算之内. 

 

Good bedside manner: SFX化妆师受益于有一个亲切的床边态度,以保持一个良好的气氛,演员,而他们的外观被应用.
