SEMINAR: by Ken Franklin
I will discuss the process my wife and I went through to streamline our makeup department so that we could control quality and get out of the critical path for our haunt’s production schedule. I will discuss our solution and how it involved equipment and procedure decisions that are easily scalable to any size haunt.
