Mad Max: Fury Road directed by George Miller is 2016 Oscar winner for Makeup and Hairstyling announced by presenters Jared Leto and Margot Robbie. The makeup and hairstyling team of Lesley Vanderwalt, Elka Wardega and Damian Martin won their first Oscar for George Miller’s postapocalyptic actioner Mad Max: Fury Road. “I can’t say it was one of my most beautiful films,” laughs Lesley Vanderwalt, the Australian hair and makeup designer charged with bringing Mad Max: Fury Road’s desert wasteland to life.
The makeup and hair team worked very closely together to create his vision of the postapocalyptic wasteland. It depends on where these characters came from, which tribe they were part of, and what they would have available to them. The oil fields in Angola, the workers of Salgado, the rubbish heaps in the Philippines, african tribal and Indian religious festivals and Polynesian and Maori scarification.
Warners Bros produced Mad Max: Fury Road in partnership with Village Roadshow and George Miller’s apocalyptic action movie swept through costumes, production design, makeup and hairstyling, sound editing, sound mixing and film editing. What do you think? Maybe looking the movie you can see the amazing work of the make up artists!
