Make-Up Artist David Dupuis Speaks at MUD
When you bring in award-winning artists that have a portfolio of creations from Pirates of the Caribbean, X-Men: The Last Stand, The Hunger Games, and Blade II, you never know what to expect. At MUD’s Industry Speaks event, David Dupuis did not disappoint. As a matter of fact, he wowed.
Students explored the world through the eyes of Dupuis as he walked them through a variety of his works using gels, appliances, and foam. When asked to name a memorable “McIver” moment in which he had to be quick on his feet, a lot of examples came to mind — including making eyes that are gouged out by a fork. His best advice: “While you’re studying, you are already connected to this world. Start saving for your union dues while you’re preparing for your new career in make-up artistry. Be ready, or close to ready when that window of opportunity opens up for you.”
As fans of his work, MUD thanks David for sharing his experiences with MUD students, and we looking forward to more amazing stories in the future.
