EPISODE 110 - KAZU HIRO - Prosthetic Makeup (3 replies and 3 comments)
Team Deakins speaks with the very talented prosthetic makeup and effects designer, Kazu Hiro (BOMBSHELL, DARKEST HOUR, THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON). We learn a lot in this episode. Kazu leads us through the process of prosthetic makeup and very patiently answers our many questions. He shares with us his work on the films Bombshell, Darkest Hour, and Benjamin Button. He also tells us about his experience of working with Akira Kurosawa! We now know about face casting, applying makeup on top of prosthetics, and the testing that is done before shooting. A great conversation with a great artist!

Very Interesting and extremely informative. In my younger days I spent many hours in the ‘Max Factor‘ studio in Melbourne next door to the Comedy Theatre learning TV and Theatre make up just so that I could Have a better understanding of the process. It really helped me a lot when it came to TV lighting. This podcast brought all of those memories back, make up artists are a special breed and always seem have a sympathetic ear, perhaps they have time to listen.
Lovely podcast and a lovely man.
Uuuuggggghhhhhh, Roger!!!!!!! You were doing so well up until now. Did you really have to disclose that you were a Democrat? Now all I hear is AOC and Pelosi on the Podcast.
I was enjoying the podcast, then bam soured. Not sure I can listen any more. Not being facetious because I am sure you are aware at the amount of hate directed at Conservatives/Republicans in this Industry. It is the most hate filled group of people I have ever met. It is a really, really serious problem.
Tad extreme, I don’t see why you would forgo invaluable knowledge because of one remark on a political view in over 100 episodes.
Linda, nobody on this website would direct any hate towards you because of your political stance. This is a wholly positive community. It would be madness to stop listening to a podcast designed to help people grow as filmmakers because of politics. How do we ever move past intolerance in that case? If you'd enjoyed the podcast up until this point, then clearly Roger's party alignment is not that important to the content of the podcast or this website.
It is always best to be impartial when it comes to politics, respecting others peoples views is paramount if you are looking for long term employment, it doesn’t pay to air political beliefs especially on a high profile forum such as this. Please continue listening to the podcasts, they are more important than politics unless ofcourse you wish to make a career as a politician.
It is hard to have a conversation and not reveal something of oneself but the podcast is certainly not a forum for airing political beliefs.
