For our ‘Zombie Meal Time’ shoot, we wanted some Intestines in the shoot. I did some research and learned about using tights to simulate Intestines so I tried it out.
Not too shabby!

Sorry it’s been a while! I’ve been busy making improvements!
Here is my finished Plague Doctor Animatronic Skin.
You’ve see my sculpt – but you haven’t seen the stuff in-between!
I used a Brass Shim wall to separate between my Fibreglass Mould. I then filled him with Liquid Latex to create his skin. I took the mould apart and trimmed him then stuffed the Protrusions with Bubble Wrap. After that I poured in Expanding Foam. I coloured the skin using Acrylic Paint and Spirit Gum.
My stand for him features B-Movie posters as they inspired me to make the head.
The Equal Opportunities Act stipulates that all people regardless of race, gender, age, religion, disabilities, sexuality and marital status should be treated the same. “2.1.1 Civil Service equal opportunities policy provides that all eligible people must have equality of opportunity for employment and advancement on the basis of their suitability for the work. There must be no unfair discrimination on the basis of age, disability, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, or (in Northern Ireland) community background.”
The Equal Opportunities Act also means that each workplace should have an Equal Opportunities policy to fully explain how they implement the act in not only employment, but also in the workplace itself. This act is extremely important in the employment market because it aims to stop all forms of discrimination in the workplace. Discrimination can take many forms:
In my opinion, the equal opportunities act is a beautiful thing because it encourages all kinds of people to apply for whatever job they want to apply for and have an equal chance as anyone else to be the successful applicant. It allows people from all backgrounds to work in a job that they love and surely that could never be a negative thing.
For Work Based Learning I have been asked to explain the UK Copyright laws and how they protect my work. The current act is the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. Copyright law started off in the UK from a concept of common law; the Statute of Anne 1709. It became statutory with the passing of the Copyright Act 1911. The law gives creators of literature, drama, music, art work, audio recordings, broadcasts and films, rights to control the ways in which their material may be used.
The rights cover; broadcast, public performance, copying, adapting, issuing, renting and lending copies to the public. In many cases, the creators also have the right to be known as the author and to stamp out distortions of his/her work.

Here’s the Boxer Rebellion music video I did makeup for. This was one of my favorite jobs so far because not only was it paid, but it’s reached over 28,500 views.
Today I had a paid Work Experience working as the Makeup Designer and Artist. This was for a Domestic Abuse Photoshoot which meant I had to do Casualty Simulation Makeup. I had two models to work on with two stories behind the makeup; The first was a woman who had never been beaten before and her partner had thrown her down some stairs. The second was a woman who had been beaten for years with healing bruises and some scarring. The first makeup consisted of bruising, a bust lip and some swelling under grazing. . This was a really fun job despite the cause and it’s been really nice to practice casualty simulation again.In reflection, I could have been more professional by having business cards and pricelists. I will have to invest in some good quality promotional materials.
