The gentleman in the beret in this article’s cover photo is my newest interview subject, Barney Burman. Barney has been active as a makeup artist for almost four decades now. Coming from a family of makeup artists, Barney started as a teenager, and isn’t showing any signs of stopping. That’s fantastic as he’s a versatile designer who has worked on all sorts of amazing projects, most notably 2009’s Star Trek, which won him a Best Makeup And Hairstyling Oscar, which he shared with Mindy Hall, who’s next to him in the cover photo, and Joel Harlow.
Children have a wild imagination, but parents don’t encourage them to write. So what will happen if you let kids write or conceptualize a movie? These movies are written by kids when they got filmed. These films are not masterpieces per se, but they have a cult following. So for something written by kids, I won’t say they are bad movies. It is still impressive that young minds can write something this crazy.
