Hollywood Makeup Artist

Two up and coming make-up students received special bursaries to learn with leading Hollywood artist Brian Kinney.

Matt Deery from Derry/Londonderry and Canan Spengler from Lisburn were awarded the Movie House Cinemas Artists Fund for Titanic Creative Management’s On-Set Makeup course with Emmy Nominated Brian Kinney, who has worked within Game of Thrones, Fear the Walking Dead, Mad Men and more.

Movie House Cinemas have been working closely alongside Titanic Creative Management as part of the Movie House Artists Fund to support individuals with a passion for film, prosthetic make-up and prop making. The fund provides individuals access to training and development with the chance to learn from industry’s finest.

On-Set Makeup consisted of everything you need to know to work as a makeup artist on set, from script breakdown, budget, character design, kit building, makeup tests, application, shooting, marketing yourself in an extremely competitive industry and more- an essential for ANY artist wanting to work in Television and Film.

Matt Deery said “I had a fantastic time doing the On-Set makeup course with Brian Kinney. A fun filled five days of education, great insight into the industry, working alongside great students and Brian is an amazing and intriguing teacher.

I joined this course as a complete novice, I had never attempted anything like On-Set makeup before, but this was not a problem. Brian and the other students made me feel like one of the team and helped me when and where I needed it.”

Canan Spengler added “I wouldn’t have been able to do a course at this level without the vital support from Movie House Cinemas – it was the greatest gift I have received in ages”

Managing Director of Movie House, Michael McAdam said:  “Well done to everyone who was involved and we cannot wait to see your work on our big screens very soon!”

Movie House have offered bursaries for a number of workshops. Lisa Hodge (Glengormley), who attended the Hyper Real Painting workshop earlier in June said “To learn hyper realist painting skills from Richard Martin, one of the industry’s best through Titanic Creative Management is an opportunity I am extremely grateful to The Movie House for.  If it wasn’t for the bursary support they very kindly gave me I would not have been able to attend the course and receive the skills I so readily need to help get me into the career I long for.”

The Movie House Artist fund are further sponsoring more upcoming workshops including:
Beauty Prosthetics for Fashion by Danny Marie Elias who has worked on the fabulous Doctor Who and Sherlock;  Anatomical Sculpting with Dan Frye Game of Thrones and Harry PotterMould Making for Props & Prosthetics with Stuart Bray Harry Potter, Game of Thrones and  Saving Private Ryan.
