We have all spotted things in shows which were never meant to be there. Scars swapping sides, hair up one minute and then down the next, blood which moves shot to shot or an errant edge which can’t be hidden.
Those are the things which you notice, and maybe take great pleasure in spotting and shaming those unfortunate artists who were ‘responsible’.
However, there are many things which you didn’t spot which could have been issues if they were not overcome before the cameras started rolling. Being skilled at makeup is one thing, but doing it in an environment with many moving parts which you don’t control is quite another.
Changing schedules, actors, body shapes and colours can all be a challenge. The time between lifecast and application may be when the actor works out, bulks up or drops weight, gets tanned or simply is replaced and your beautifully matched appliances don’t fit, are the wrong colour or no longer needed.
We go through some of these hidden problems which are not so rare, and which will tax the creative minds of those on whose shoulders these things fall.

We have had a long lay-off and been quiet coping with one thing and another, so apologies for the radio silence. We have a few new toys which will mean things are going to be more regular on the podcast front.
