Academy to Add Two Governors to Makeup Artists and Hairstylists Branch
Posted: Tuesday January 29, 2013
Make-up artists and hairstylists will soon have a greater presence
on the Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and
Sciences. On Jan. 23, 2013 at a regular meeting, the governors voted to
increase representation of the Makeup Artists and Hairstylists Branch
from one to three governors. The two new governors—one a make-up artist,
the other a hairstylist—will join current governor Leonard Engelman
after they are elected in a final vote in July.
forward to sharing the task of representing the academy's make-up
artists and hairstylists with two of my colleagues," said Engelman. "New
governors will bring new ideas, which will help to keep the academy's
leadership strong and sharp."
The Makeup Artists and Hairstylists
Branch was formed in 2006; it was the last branch added before the
Costume Designers Branch was formed this year. The new governors from
those branches will bring the total board size to 48 members, with three
governors representing each of the academy’s 16 branches. Governors are
expected to attend six annual meetings, as well as special events and
award presentations throughout the year.
"Congratulations to our
members from these essential craft areas. Movies are a visual medium and
costume designers, make-up artists and hairstylists help to create
images that tell stories," said academy president Hawk Koch.
The timeline for the Makeup Artists and Hairstylists Branch elections is as follows:
Before May 15, all branch members receive a ballot to elect 10 branch members to form a Nomination Committee.
Before June 15, the Nomination Committee meets to nominate eight
governor candidates (four make-up artists and four hairstylists).
Before June 30, ballots go to all branch members for election (to be returned by July 10).
London-based make-up artist Angela Holthuis and photographer Izabela Habur set a challenge for themselves: Habur
asked Holthuis, a fashion pro, to create “a small story with bold looks
within a small time frame, to test out how far we [could] push
ourselves creatively,” Holthuis said.
