The Phantom of the Opera

The Phantom of the Opera was first made into a movie by Rupert Julian in the USA in 1925. The film is based on the novel of the same name by the French author Gaston Leroux. Lon Chaney played the leading role. At that time, he applied his own make-up to change his face into a scary mask. This way he had enough freedom of movement for fine nuances in facial expressions. This mask was brought to life step by step.

When applying make-up for film and television, it is important to show moderators, politicians, talk guests, show stars and other personalities expressively and at their best. This means: Using colours effectively, optimising faces, making use of shading, setting highlights, concealing flaws – such as applying make-up for a narrower nose or optically correcting the distance between the eyes – choosing and applying powder correctly and much more.

Character design – golden opportunity

When modeling, there are no limits set to your imagination. Starting point for modeling work is an inspiration from a completely different context. Photo material, illustrations or objects serve – so to speak – as a model for a character. Thus, a piece of chewing gum, spit out and trampled upon becomes, for example, a character head.
