from the desk of John WoodbridgeWhether you work in front of the camera or behind it, high definition (HD) is destined to revolutionise the UK television industry over the next few years.
Do you need to know the facts about high definition?
FilmMakeup.co.uk is not just an online information resource for make-up artists.
It is also an easy to understand reference tool for actors, directors, camera crew, hairdressers, costume designers and many other industry grades - in fact anyone needing to know how HD will affect the on screen image of their performer.
FilmMakeup.co.uk will greatly disappoint those seeking information about the various compression algorithms used in HD for colour resolution or any other similarly detailed technical knowledge about HD.
The technical information appearing on this site has been translated into plain English - for those of us who still steadfastly believe that a "hard drive" is getting stuck in traffic on our way to the studio.
But if you happen to belong to a technical grade in the industry, please don't click away from the site without first taking a quick look round. The site contains nontechnical answers to some fairly technical questions and may be of value to the cast and crew you work with. Please do direct your colleagues to FilmMakeup.co.uk if you feel they would benefit from the information provided on these pages.
FilmMakeup.co.uk is also an HD “hype free zone”.
You may be visiting this website because you’ve either read or heard something about HD that has given you cause for concern.
If you’re an actor or presenter, you may have read that HD will reveal every tiny facial imperfection to your viewing audience.
If you’re a make-up artist, you might have heard that you’ll need to completely change the way you design and apply your make-up for HD.
You can find the truth about these and many other worries you might have about HD by clicking on the links that can be found at the top of this page. Just choose the link that best describes you.
Whilst nothing on the site must be considered personal or individual make-up advice, I very much hope that the insights provided at FilmMakeup.co.uk will give you the confidence you need to work in high definition.
