Alexandra Guillot

Alexandra Guillot started out colouring prosthetics for filming in Sydney while training in special effects make-up.  After a stint in Hong Kong she now works at Weta Workshop and as a freelance designer. While make up was her starting point, she’s interested in designing the entire look of a production, from set to costumes.

Alexandra is currently designing an opera double bill for the New Zealand School of Music which opens on Thursday in Wellington.
