There’s one thing that cheers us up no end in the Warpaint office and that’s the Awards season. From a make-up point of view, we get to applaud the skills of the film make-up designers and their teams as well as indulge in some fabulous Red Carpet fashion and beauty looks.
The Oscar nominations were announced early this morning. Check out statements from this year’s Oscar nominees. We’ll be updating this post throughout the day:
“On behalf of Myself, Richie Alonzo, and a supremely talented crew of artisans and technicians with whom I share this recognition, I would like to express my deepest heartfelt appreciation to the Academy for this incredible honor. Star Trek marked its fiftieth anniversary in 2016, and as an homage to all of those filmmakers that came before, we took the opportunity to create over fifty unique and individual alien races for Star Trek Beyond, a challenge that had never been attempted before and was only made possible through the steadfast support of Paramount, J.J. Abrams, Bad Robot, and Skydance, and the day to day collaborations with Justin Lin, Jeffery Chernov, Lindsey Weber, Simon Pegg, Doug Jung, Ron Ames and Helen Pollak.” Joel Harlow – Best Make Up and hairstyling – Star Trek Beyond
It's not every day you get a chance to chat with an Academy Award-winner, but that's exactly the opportunity I was given a few weeks back when I got to sit down with Joel Harlow, the makeup artist behind Paramount Pictures' critically acclaimed smash hit Star Trek Beyond.
Find out what it was like to create looks for Star Trek Beyond at IMATS Los Angeles, held Jan. 13-15, 2017. Make-Up Artist magazine, which produces IMATS, has announced that the film’s make-up designer, Oscar winner Joel Harlow, will lead a panel discussion on all the unique make-ups from the movie.
In close to 30 years as a professional make-up artist, Harlow has overseen cutting-edge make-ups for several high-caliber film and television projects. His expansive credit list includes the Pirates of the Caribbean films, Alice in Wonderland, Dark Shadows, Green Lantern, The Rum Diary and The Lone Ranger; he is also actor Johnny Depp’s make-up artist.
“All Star Trek films deserve the surround-sound, big-screen, IMAX experience that really shows off every department’s hard work.”
