At JMK Life Films, we know that the execution of the concept is crucial to making a great video. That is, a really good idea and a really good script don’t automatically translate into a really good film. Special effects make-up is one of those areas that can make or break a concept. While producing a Wizard of Oz spoof for a Los Angeles family, we felt that good make-up was essential to the success of the video. In these photos, one of our favorite make-up artists, Lina Hang (linahang.com) performs her magic. Clients love the process, too. At what other time in your life would you and your family members do something like this?! Making a JMK Life Film is a unique experience. And we want the filmmaking journey to be just as fun and memorable as the final product.
(On a side note, the wicked witch was supposed to have a green face, as in the movie. But that day, someone astutely noticed that shooting a witch with a green face in front of a green screen would be a big mistake: her face would disappear in editing. )
