 My friend Devin Graham has been really succesful with his youtube channel. A while back he orchestrated this huge project and wanted me out doing dirt and grit makeup. It was a huge undertaking with some other really really talented visionary film people. The players included Freddy and Brandon from freddieW and a whole bunch of WWII reenactment soldiers. I got them looking right using a combination of cream and pancake makeup applied with randomly shaped sponges to break up edges. I dusted them off with fuller's earth to finish each one. The idea was to get each player looking as if he'd been on the ground behind enemy lines for weeks. It was pretty challenging work doing so many characters that fast. I've got close ups of some of the guys here.
