From the moment I went to visit BAMM and spoke to Melanie I knew it was where I wanted to study media makeup. For me the passion seen by Mel not only for her school but for the love of the makeup industry was a key selling point.
Once on the course, I was really excited to be taught by so many key makeup artists; it made such a difference having professional tutors who are currently in the industry. Not only did it enable us to pick up on relevant tips but also gave us a massive stepping stone in making some great contacts for when we finished.
The school, was really helpful in sending out lots of work experience offers too, which is how I got my first job working on a small independent film. However, it was not much longer than 3months before I was doing work experience on a big film in London with Simon Pegg and Joanna Lumley.
Since then BAMM have continued to send through work experience including an amazing opportunity to work on ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’. I honestly could not recommend BAMM more, they were and still are so supportive to each of their students individually.
