Tamla Rose is the latest film from Joe Scott and Ace Films. It was filmed entirely on location in the North West of England and focuses heavily on the northern soul and Motown music genre.
From a make up perspective the biggest challenge for this film was continuity. As the story focuses on three young glamorous girls, it was important that we made them look as if they really make an effort each day. Therefore, instead of having a standard ‘look’ for each character, with the same make up each scene day, we designated certain products to each actress, and each scene day had different make up according to their outfits.
We were fortunate to have been allowed time to do this and the film will be better for it. We were also lucky enough to have a separate hairdresser on our team, who is exceptionally skilled at creative hairstyles and, together with the wardrobe department, helped us to establish a definite style for the ‘Tamla Roses’
