"Makeup, hair/wig and sfx is a magic way to create a character, a person whom we as an audience should believe in how ever normal or crazy him/her may look. And for me, as a makeup/hair/wig/sfx designer, to do a breakdown of a scritpt, get to analyze, do the research and to work close together with the director, the costume designer and the actress/actor is the best way to achieve the illusion we all want to create to make the best character and production ever."
