Actor Eric Elmosnino took on the daunting task of playing the famous French singer Serge Gainsbourg in the recent biopic Gainsbourg: Vie héroïque (A Heroic Life). Luckily, he got lots of help transitioning into the character from the Spanish make-up shop DDT Efectos Especiales, which created several facial pieces and effects to age the character from his thirties to his sixties, and to reflect his hard-living habits. DDT also crafted age make-up for Gainsbourg’s parents and an oversized facial piece for his alter-ego, La Gueule, with help from a mechanical apparatus designed by Chris Clark. Make-Up Artist magazine’s Issue 93 covers the story in depth, but we couldn’t resist sharing some of the extra exclusive photos that DDT sent to us. Enjoy!
