(Experimental Short Film)

Radiation burns on the skinThe independent and very small production asked us to produce 3 stages of makeup,

depicting the effectsof a nuclear bomb blast to the human body, using a very small budget.

To produce the makeup, it was established that the cheap and quick use of food ingredients would be best, especially

not knowing the actresses skin condition or allergic reactions to rubber or makeup.
