The 15-week TV and Film Makeup Course includes training in skills such as airbrushing, wig and facial hair work, prosthetics, special effects, character and theatrical makeup and body art. There is also work on script breakdown and continuity, and business-building skills such as accountancy, tax, website design and an understanding of the industry. Photo shoots at the end of modules enable participants to build up a portfolio of their work and after the course successful participants are guaranteed work placements or traineeships with the Artistic Director and his contacts. As well as its main 15-week course, BAMM offers short full-time, weekend and day-long courses in specific skills and as refreshers and tasters.
