The Makeup and Hairstyling Symposium, hosted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, marked its 10th year with presentations from Oscar-nominated make-up artists and hairstylists.
Hosted by Makeup Artists and Hairstylists Branch governors Kathryn Blondell and Lois Burwell and moderated by Leonard Engelman (former vice president of the Academy Board of Governors), the event featured discussions with—and displays of work from—the teams nominated for this year’s Achievement in Makeup and Hairstyling Oscar.
Participants included Robert Pandini, Duncan Jarman and Sian Grigg for The Revenant; Lesley Vanderwalt, Elka Wardega and Damian Martin for Mad Max: Fury Road; and Eva von Bahr and Love Larson for The 100-Year-Old-Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared. Nominees described their creative processes and presented film clips and displays of their work before participating in a question-and-answer period.
