Christie Horne – a fantastic opportunity
“To be offered the opportunity to work on a music video was amazing. In the two full-on days it took to film, I learned so much about what it takes to be a professional make-up artist.
“There is a lot of hard work and time pressure, but it was so rewarding to see the finished product,” says Christie Horne, a recent graduate from Samala Robinson Academy.
Rhys Bobridgeand MisFits designed the music video for his song Hot Summer. There were a lot of dancers and the makeup was to be very bold and intense. It was a real challenge to thrive on, working as quickly but precisely as possible to achieve the requested looks.
It was very nerveracking at first, but as soon as we had been going for a few minutes it was really exciting and it felt like we could go on forever!
It was important that we always had some products with us so that we could touch-up the dancers make-up if it started to smudge or got dirty. They had to dance around in mud during one scene, so that took a bit of cleaning up!
It is great that we are offered experiences like this at SRA, because we enter the make-up industry a lot more prepared and with an idea of what to expect.
Through experiences like this you can really discover your make-up niche – I certainly know that I want to work on more music videos!”
Christie has since graduated with merit from the Samala Robinson Academy. All the best for the future Christie!
