Unique trade fair with renowned experts. MADS '15

The make-up artist design show has established itself as the leading fair in this sector. This came especially clear as top stars in the sector presented their tricks and techniques on the trade show. Top international speakers like Oscar and BAFTA prize winner Howard Berger from Hollywood, Daniel Parker or Nick Dudman from England provided comprehensive insight into their working techniques.

Make-up artists from theaters, play and opera houses, TV studios, musicals and film productions gathered information at the stands of the 75 exhibitors and brands. Kryolan was present with four exciting fair stands. At the FX stand visitors were able to test the newest airbrush innovation: Nebula Airbrush Make-up; which will officially launch in mid July 2015. At the Kryolan bookstand visitors could take a peek into the new Make-up International Magazine (#MUImagazine) and the newest edition of the Kryolan Make-up Manual in German language.

Wolfram Langer, Managing Director of Kryolan, drew a more than positive conclusion: “This year we have seen the best MADS of all times. Visitors were offered a great program with the absolute top stars. Everyone involved praised the intimacy and the opportunity for uncomplicated networking as well as the wonderful atmosphere here in Düsseldorf.”

As in previous years, the Managing Director honored make-up artists for their life’s work, exceptional artistic achievements or their commitment towards young talent.

Birger Laube from Munich is a national award winner, whose career started with his education at the London College of Fashion. He then specialized as a special effect make-up artist and worked professionally in many countries as well as on numerous film productions, which are the foundation of his excellent reputation in regard to his works. His commitment to the make-up artist profession, for example as an instructor at the Bavarian Theater Academy (Bayerischen Theaterakademie) in Munich, deserves special appreciation.

Nick Dudman from Great Britain receives the international award for his life’s work. In more than 30 years in the film industry, he has characterized countless films, amongst which Star Wars, Batman, Indiana Jones, The Fifth Element, Children of Men, the entire Harry Potter series and currently the Penny Dreadful series. He was nominated for the Oscar and several times for the BAFTA Award for the make-up effects and the magical animatronic figures of the Harry Potter movies, amongst others.

The next make-up artist design show will be held on 5 and 6 March 2016.
