Ep 13 | S2: Cliona Furey & Jo-Ann MacNeil take a trip into Nightmare Alley

Seasoned Artists - Hair Designer Cliona Furey and Makeup Department Head Jo-Ann MacNeil - go in depth to discuss the incomparable looks of  Nightmare Alley.  We go into detail about the creative process creating the looks for The Geek played by Paul Anderson, Toni Collette's Zeena and Rooney Mara as Molly.  Cliona and Jo-Ann share about the challenges they faced like shutting down production immediately and without warning  on March 12, 2020 in the midst of shooting a scene's master shot, and then picking up again in September without missing a beat.  

Hear about their fascinating process and enjoy listening as they share incredible details about this epic production.
