“Don’t Stress Distressing” – Theatre Presentation with Dan Sandy

“Don’t Stress Distressing - Congratulations, you got the job! You’re a day-player on set, or back stage on a show. Now what? Sometimes we’re required to make our characters look less than their best. Get ready to learn the basics of out-of-kit makeup effects to capture just the right degree of “distressing” for your actors. This demonstration will feature Ben Nye makeup products (and some others) that ought to be in every artists makeup kit.”
