HAIR AND MAKEUP BY...
A SYMPOSIUM OF FILM AND TELEVISION ARTISTS
is an annual event conceived to educate, enlighten, and inspire up and coming Hair and Makeup Artists as well as seasoned professionals at any stage in their career. The Criterion Group felt it was time to impart some of the invaluable, collective knowledge from these artisans. Their extraordinary contributions to the art of Film and Television many times goes unrecognized. This symposium is designed to highlight the importance of these professions and share, in a lively forum, their experiences. In it's third year, with past events in Los Angeles and Atlanta, we look forward to bringing the symposium to every major city.
Many of our hair and makeup artists have extensive experience teaching masterclasses and workshops. We invite schools and private institutions to inquire about special one-day or weekend masterclasses/workshops. Sample classes include: how to apply and remove a lace front wig, color correction/tattoo cover-up makeup, barber clipping techniques/hair building, how to work under any weather and/or shooting conditions and unexpecting set challenges, how to work with top talent and become a department head. Should you have a specific topic you'd like covered, our clients can customize a class just for you.
