Student Success

Make-up artist Emma Dutton progressed from our level 3 qualification in media make-up onto the level 4 in Advanced Theatrical Media Make-up. Since studying at the college, Emma has gone on to work on a number of projects, including teaching and working as part of the make-up team on the upcoming film, The Hellions, produced by the British Youth Film Academy.

Emma said: “I absolutely loved the course and my tutor Anne was fantastic. I particularly loved learning how to do prosthetics and bald caps as that’s what I ended up doing on The Hellions.”

To further her knowledge, Emma is also completing our Diploma in Education & Training.
