Ffion is currently on week three of the Peter Swords King Television & Film Makeup & Hair Course at The Bath Academy of Media Makeup. We took some time out to get to know her better. Hear is what Ffion had to say about herself.
I chose BAMM because it seemed such an amazing place to be able to learn from such amazing, and experienced people, and also felt like it was somewhere that really cared and looked after you, taught you well, and enabled and encouraged you to express yourself creatively.
Before this course, I attended and qualified in a level 3 Theatrical hair and makeup course. My job at the time was waitressing and bar work, but also recently have been fortunate to work on two short films, doing makeup and hair for the BBC, and work experience with wigs backstage of ‘Cilla the musical’ UK tour.
I feel I am constantly inspired by not only my day to day life but by my teachers and classmates. Talking and watching them creatively, always leaves me wanting to get stuck in and create myself.
I started this career path because I have always been that creative type of person, and found a love for makeup at such a young age. I have always especially been in awe of the talent and secrets behind film and television makeup.
I hope to keep learning from the best and work on film and TV, doing makeup and hair. I just love it!
