I just recently finished a movie and I am still shocked and appalled at the "LACK" of professionalism. What is professionalism? Definition of professionalism-
1 professional character, spirit, or methods.
2 the standing, practice, or methods of a professional, as distinguished from an amateur.
The lack of professionalism in this case not only makes you as the artist look bad, but also puts into question your integrity as a person. Every show is different but keep your personal life and personal opinions to yourself. If you don't like a producer, actor or crew member, KEEP IT TO YOURSELF!!! If you are having a problem with other hair and makeup artists don't discuss it with your actors or run to who ever will listen on set. You shouldn't be talking about race, religion, sex or hot button issues. When they call for "touch ups" that means for YOU to touch up your actors. You are not there to set in a huddle and watch a monitor. Your job is to get UP and look at your actor. Professionalism is bringing your A game to work everyday. Learn how to play well with others and stop being messy and dramatic. The journey is not a sprint it is a marathon.
