As some of you know, I do special FX make up, generally for short no budget films and have been doing so for 2 years now. Its something I love but very hard to get a break in a career like that as so many people are in the same position!
Yesterday i got a call from a girl I had worked with before asking if I would like to go and help out with 200 zombies today, so , as usual I jumped at the chance to get involved. Later on yesterday I then found out what the film was and have just got back from a 12 hour day on set for Zombie Diaries 2. OK, so those of you outside of the UK probably haven't heard of the first one, but it will be the first film I have worked on that is guaranteed a UK cinema release! I have seen some of my films on the big screen but only at specialist events so this is quite a biggy for me! :D
Plus, of course, being available at short notice and being super helpful today has put me in touch with some good contacts (like they say, it's not what you know, but who you know!)
So I will even get to go to a proper posh premiere in London and see my name on screen!!
Very excited as the chief make up artist has asked me back for more filming next week so he was obviously pleased with my work today:BigSmile::BigSmile:

Sorry, as it is completly off topic but wanted to share my joy!!

that is a BIG deal... I am so happy for you! I have done some small time make up work for Six Flags Parks Zombies and their T.V. commercials in the 90's. It was blast, I can just imagine your excitement to be involved in such a exciting opportunity. Good Luck!!

It's not off topic... SL members are like a little dysfunctional family that shares everything.. not just sphynx related stuff.

But that is awesome, Kat!! See? Sometimes it pays off having nothing to do over the weekend!!:LOL:

I am so proud of you - I just wish it was releasing here, so I could say... Hey! I know her!!!

Great job! And I hope this experience opens many more doors for you!! You deserve it!:ThumbsUp:

P.S. - If you ever get big and famous and traveling all over the world and you need a guardian for Smeagol.... LOL (J/K) :Hysterical:

Awww... thanks guys :)
This is why I love this place so much :Adore:

I do love this work (I also have a boring, but paid part time job!!) and I will do most things without pay, as long as its not costing me a fortune to travel etc! As it all helps build my portfolio, give me experience, contacts and just get my name out there! Its always nice to be asked back (in any walk of life!) but even more so when the head of make up is a 'name' like today :BigSmile:

Jody - if I ever get THAT rich and famous, Smeagol with have his own personal jet to go everywhere with me!!! :LOL::LOL:
Nightspidy - I am not allowed to post any pictures from today anywhere until the release of the film, but you can see lots of pics and some of my short films at my website which is Zombify I also have a few on my profile page :BigSmile:
