Renata Gilbert trained at Greasepaint Make-up School in 1989 and is an “all-rounder” artist, as they say in the business, working with hair, make-up and prosthetics.
With over 30 years’ experience in the industry, she has worked alongside Oscar, Bafta and Emmy winning designers on a wide range of TV productions, as well as some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters.
Her portfolio is brimming with make-up credits, working alongside actors such as Daniel Radcliffe, and her skills have most recently been enlisted as the Make-up and Hair Designer on the set of Young Wallander. Other credits include, Bohemian Rhapsody, The Danish Girl starring Eddie Redmayne, and Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, as Head of 2nd Unit Make-up and Hair. Her industry experience also covers the British film industry, where she worked on several popular TV period mini-series including Great Expectations, Henry V and Richard II.
A passionate make-up artist with many years of teaching experience, Renata now brings her knowledge of period dramas and futuristic blockbusters to The Iver Academy as an Academic Consultant. As well as continuing her freelance work, she will be sharing her industry knowledge with the students on our popular film and TV make-up courses.
