Georgia is fast becoming a major filming center for film and TV. Many makeup artists coming on-set for the first time become overwhelmed by the hectic structure of the fast paced production schedule of filming movies.

In this 5 day course you will be ready to hit the ‘ground running’ from the first day on-set. In addition you will understand the structure of director to pa’s and union vs. non-union.
