Theatrical Make-Up HND - Marta
Marta moved from Italy to England 4 years ago, and developed her English whilst studying at Kingston College, as she had struggled to find courses in Italy that suited her passion for make-up. Equipped with the technical vocabulary, she started Higher Education at ESC. She enjoys working with prosthetics and would love a future career in the film industry, particularly if it involves fantasy or horror movies.
Marta was impressed with the facilities at College, and for her final project she worked with the Engineering department to create a beating heart, using a bike pump. Outside of College, she has taken on projects with Pride London, working on performers’ make-up. She said “I loved the atmosphere, even without being English, I could feel a part of it.”
Marta’s next step is Bournemouth University, and she says she is looking forward to testing out new materials for special effects make-up.
“Without this course, I wouldn’t make it to uni!”
