Don't worry, it's not real. But I don't mind encouraging a little rubbernecking on my blog. What you're witnessing is a self-portrait of makeup artist Casey Doiron. She was not harmed during the making of this effect.
Like a small but likely growing number of folks, Doiron plans to relocate to Shreveport during the next few months to find work in the movie industry. She currently lives in New Iberia, La., but is intrigued by what's happening in the northern part of the state.
Professionally, she works mostly in fashion but hopes her skills are transferable.
I've been working on a series of movie-industry stories for the past week or so, and one of my topics is "developing Louisiana crew bases."
Are you someone who's considering a move to Shreveport for work in the movie industry? Or have you moved here already? How's it going? Good? Bad? Better than a flesh wound? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. And by all means, send me your bloody pictures.
