NIC had the pleasure of holding a Makeup Contest on March 27, 2019 for Paramount Pictures’ Pet Sematary, coming to theatres on April 5th, 2019. With the assistance of Vancouver TV and their amazing Pet Sematary car, Makeup Artists from among our students and alumni had some fun and got to show off their amazing skills creating unique and intricate pieces for this truly mind blowing contest.
Winners were awarded tickets to the advance screening AND we’ve awarded a $200 FIRST PLACE cash prize to our first place winner, none other than Andrea Manuel, whom we asked what her inspiration and process was for her surprising piece on Church, the cat from Pet Sematary:
My interpretation of “Church” the Creed’s family cat was constructed on a latex and cotton piece; I modified the nose and cheek bones for a really basic and rough piece, but when the hair layering comes on top I hid the edges, giving it an entirely different shape to the face, bringing it all together.
The idea of the neon eyes helped modify the natural human shape and added a creepier and more intense look.
It was really an experiment since I didn’t make any tests beforehand, but luckily it all worked out.
With everything we have learned throughout the school program, all the basic knowledge is set, then it’s really up to everyone to combine, modify and adapt every technic and process to achieve the look you have in mind.
We are amazed by your work Andrea, and we hope to see even more amazing pieces from your artful hands in the future! To see her brilliant piece, feel free to check out the following images:
We hope you’ll join us for many more events like this in the future! Special thanks to Vancouver TV and Paramount Pictures, and especially all of the truly talented students that participated in this contest! You are an absolute SUCCESS!
