Showing Your Scars
Tinsley Studio recently completed additional photography for the film Jonah Hex due in theaters June 2010. Christien Tinsley, Makeup Department Head for principle and additional photography, had the fortunate task of designing the Makeup and Special Makeup FX for the film. Having previously worked together on No Country for Old Men, this film marked the second time Christien has worked with Josh Brolin who plays the title character, Jonah Hex. This film was also the second collaboration with Producer Akiva Goldsman and Consultant Director Francis Lawrence, both with whom Christien worked on I Am Legend.
Joining Christien as Hair Department Head was the always fabulous, Beth Miller whom Christien last worked with in 2001 on Vin Diesel’s xXx. Veteran makeup artists Gerry Quist and Rolf Keppler also joined the makeup team.
“Working on a stylized western with the talented Brolin, Malkovich and Fassbender was a great experience. The makeup for Jonah Hex was a grueling task but Josh was a true professional.”
