Okay look I KNOW this belongs in another section on this site - the MAKEUP forum - and I WILL post it there as well.  BUT I keep talking about this and I need to know something from you all - you who are out there doing the work in the trenches, having the needs of theater officianados, techies, actors, directors, etc., etc.  IF I AM to do this series of DVD's or a book on theater makeup, WHAT IN YOUR OPINION CAN I DO THAT'S DIFFERENT THAN WHAT OTHER BOOKS HAVE DONE??  I have a LOT of books on theater makeup and makeup in general - special effects makeup work and more.  AND I know what I've seen in the nearly 50 years I've been doing makeup that is so poorly done that I long for someone (like myself) to offer a treatise on what it takes to do it right for a variety of situations and venue sizes, etc.  BUT what I DON'T know is what MOST PEOPLE NEED or WANT from a makeup book that isn't being or hasn't been provided already by other treatises on the subject.
SO I guess I'm asking for SUGGESTIONS, IDEAS, OPINIONS, NEEDS (specific and general) and what in your world isn't being taught or being shared that would help YOU in THE REAL world of community theater.  I want to address makeup from a variety of standpoints as well - NOT just AMATUER BEGINNER work but enough of a variety that it won't bore the masses of those who DO good makeup work but need to take things steps further in their development as makeup artists in theater or whatever it is you're doing.  CAN YOU HELP?  DO YOU WANT to help by providing YOUR personal take on what would help you the most from what you know and what you've seen of makeup work by those who NEED to know how to do it right and how it should be presented that it will best serve those who want to learn?
THIS would give me a REAL PICTURE of what the most pressing needs are in the worlds in which you all exist and especially so when you NEED good makeup work done but there is no-one who knows how.  OR it will give me if nothing else, a jumping off place.  Oh I could come up with an outline - I'm working on one now.  BUT you don't want to see the HISTORY of makeup, or AVANTE GARDE high fashion stuff necessarily, nor all old age makeups, nor animals, monsters or zombies, etc., etc.  -  YOU get my point I think.  If you're like me, you KNOW that good, solid PRACTICAL makeup help is always a god-send and something that is sorely needed and poorly conveyed, hardly EVER taught even on the college level, much less in community theater circles.
While I cannot offer you all a byline on the final result, you'll all certainly know you contributed and will be graciously thanked for your ideas, thoughts, conjectures, problems, issues, needs, concepts, and so on and so forth when I do get this off the ground and out there into the hands of those who need it most - and there are many.  All I have to do now is figure out a way of getting it out there into the hands of those who WANT it and THOSE who NEED it but would never admit to it.
THANKING YOU IN ADVANCE for your ideas and such.
