A Subtle Touch
Our makeup artist, Jamie Leigh McIntosh, talents have expanded the globe; so we were very fortunate to have her talent on set. Jamie was such a true pro and with her experience she probably could have done our makeup with her hands tied behind her back and eyes closed. However, her subtle touch in "Waiting for You" was her grace. I wanted the actors in no make-up so she really helped to achieve that by accenting only the essentials and at the same time adding so much depth and character to our leads, Ralph Michiel, face as "Pops".
She also walked a very caring line when working with our lead actress, Dalit Berkowitz, who was hesitant to go au natural for the camera. When we think of great makeup artist these days we think of shows like Face Off (one of my son's favorite show) where SFX make up is bold and in your face, but sometimes it's truly the subtle touch, a touch almost invisible to the eye that anchors our suspension of disbelief.
