Enumclaw Poster w_date




It’s been about a month since those jam-packed filming days. They were so much fun and I know, in my circles at least, we are still talking about what a great experience it was.  I’ve had the pleasure of receiving some behind the scenes photos from Susan Etchey, a local Freelance Writer, Media Specialist, and Publicist. I thought you might want to see them too! I hope to be sharing more updates with you as we move into post production, and hopefully, we will see you at the premiere!

Hi everybody!

It’s Rachel, the hair and makeup lead again, back with another crepe hair adventure to share!

Once again I have my trusty assistant Maxwell Swet, and a bunch of fake hair and sticky stuff to apply to his face. I used a different adhesive than spirit gum this time (it worked so much better! YAY!), and I also spent several hours perusing youtube for beard and moustache trimming advice. As a 20-something young lady, this is something I didn’t really see coming in my future, but it was interesting, none-the-less. 😉

I’ve discovered the need to purchase some beard and moustache wax for the type of moustaches we will be doing in the “Ten Decades” film, coming up here in about a month. The wax is what helps the long moustache hairs stay up and off to the sides instead of drooping into the mouth, getting into the food, etc. As I don’t have any right now, I went ahead and trimmed Max’s moustache fairly short, and for fun, added a “soul patch” underneath. All the people present concurred that he looked like he walked out of the Zorro film… all that was missing was his mask and cape.

Personally, I think this test looks 100x better than the last one. I had fun, learned a lot, and am getting faster!

About the Film:

In celebration of Enumclaw’s 100th birthday, Hero Labs, in collaboration with the City of Enumclaw, is producing “Ten Decades”, a short film that tells the story of just how amazing Enumclaw has been, is now, and will be in the future. We want to show off the art, the local industries and businesses, the history, and most importantly, the enduring warm community spirit of Enumclaw through a story that takes a visitor on an adventure through the past.

The Scene We Need YOU For:

An auction sequence at Wetzel’s Sales Pavilion, set in the 1940s.

What to Wear:

1940’s farm clothes. This is a volunteer project, so we need you to provide your own costume. Please send us a picture of you in your costume, so we can make sure it’s a good fit for the project.

Fake Beard Test

Some portions of the plot for the “Ten Decades” film involve going into the past, and a few of the characters need to have very full beards and some super moustaches.

Here’s some fun pictures from a beard test I did recently. It was my first time applying a fake beard. It took me too long (need to get faster), I made a few mistakes, and I obviously need some trimming lessons, but I think it’s a good first try.

A huge “Thank You!” to Maxwell Swet, who was my long-suffering first victi..*ahem*..model. Thank you for sitting through the fumes, the sticky fingers, and the hairs tickling and itching the inside of your nose. You’re the best!
