Losing Memories

Orlagh Heverin - Director

Losing Memories was based on the degenerative mind of a alzheimers sufferer with memory flashbacks from the present to the 1920's and 1940's.  The 10 minute short film was shot over a period of two days in the west of Ireland at various locations and is to be shown at the Galway Film Fleadh this year.  I was the sole makeup artist for a cast of 10 focusing on period makeup for the 1920's, 1940's, ageing and straight makeup application.
