Months before the upcoming season airs, the creators of Face Off are already searching for their next cast. This week at the MUD campus in Burbank, students began auditioning for their spot on Syfy’s riveting competition of make-up artists.
This exclusive audition began with the contestants doing a self make-up application.
As explained by the Creative Director, the key ingredient for a solid candidate is the ability to sculpt. And then, of course, there is the talent factor. Anyone can learn application, but because contestants are required to do up to five creations in a day, they have to be able create and recreate.
Do you have what it takes to compete on a future season of Face Off? If so, they want to hear from you! As the show continues to look for talented and creative special FX make-up artists, they are eager to hear from interested artists by email at FaceoffCasting@gmail.com or by phone via Pitman Casting at 818.666.3606.
