Using film fragments, the museum teacher shows how actors are completely transformed with special effects make-up. The students discover the effect of make-up in major films and see how it makes a film even more real or exciting. Under the guidance of a make-up artist, they learn various techniques and use wax and fake blood, among other things. The students work together in pairs and practice on each other.
