Christie Horne – a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity

Central Leader - - News -

“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!
