    Actors learn how to age themselves and change their appearance with make-up.

  • Description

    Titles read: '"MAKE-UP" SCHOOL!'

    Location of events unknown - Italy?

    At a continental stage school we see actors sitting at dressing tables, learning how to put on make up to age their faces for different parts. Men are seen putting on false beards, facial hair and wigs and marking their faces with a pencil to look like wrinkles. C/U of a man (he looks a little scary) seems to be made-up as a country bumpkin character and takes off his wig, scarf and false nose, squashing it between his fingers.

    A girl made-up as a witch or pirate takes off some of her make-up (not enough to look a whole lot better). Another combs a very long wig that she's wearing. A third girl models a 17th century wig with a crazed look in her eyes. Dissolve into her without wig and make-up.
