Talent Spotlight: Genevieve Lamb, Make-Up Artist

Today I want to highlight the efforts of the artist who helped make “Zombies Take The School Yard” a success, Genevieve Lamb. Our original MUA, Caryn Coblio, got called in to work a feature shoot on location in San Francisco just days before our own, so she couldn’t make our shoot as well. A true professional, Caryn referred me to her colleague Genevieve Lamb, who was able to step in and take over duties at the last minute. Both girls really worked hard to make sure I was happy with the last-minute flexibility and I’d hire both of them again in a heartbeat. Gen’s work is awesome, as the following photos demonstrate. Go check out her website at http://www.genlamb.com to see her other work.

Zombies: Make-Up/Effects Artist Needed

I need a talented make-up artist or two to help us make up five high school age kids who will be zombies in the film. Everything will be rehearsed and filmed in a single location in West Los Angeles near the Santa Monica Airport. Experience doesn’t matter, but I prefer somone who has experience with professional quality make-up, prosthetics and blood effects. This is a no-budget 6 minute short so there’s no pay, but I will purchase all the materials needed for excellent make-up based on your recommendation. I’m documenting the entire process of directing this film here on my blog, so if you want to check out who I am and what I’m doing, go ahead and look around (nothing’s breakable.)  If you help with this project, I’ll promote you and your involvement feverishly, along with delicious, wholesome-yet-tasty meals on shoot days April 2-3, credit and web presence so you’ll always be able to point people to your work on the web. Reach me at jtuverson@ca.rr.com with credentials, availability and if possible, samples where I can see your work online, Zombie or not. Thanks everybody.
