Bonus Episode: We are trying something new and we have a bonus episode, just a little something to get you through our hiatus period.
On this bonus episode I am speaking with Hair & Makeup Artists Christina Wagner and Andrea Pirchner, Christina and Andrea worked on the Netflix Series DARK. We chat about their journey working on a show with so many time periods, character ages and even different worlds, what challenges they came up against and how they stayed on top of all the different looks and changes happening while shooting…
Now a word of warning, if you have not watched DARK but intend to, there are plenty of spoilers, so I recommend watching the show and then watch it again to completely grasp how amazing it is and then listen to this episode…
