Odd Friends Put on 'Makeup' on Digital, VOD June 27

When two people are brought together from completely different walks of life, it can make for awkward circumstances, especially when they both have their secrets. Sacha (André), an introverted French ex-chef, moves to London to begin his new life as a food critic. Moving into a rented room in a house belonging to Dan (Masheter), a well-respected London stockbroker, the pair are forced into an unlikely friendship. As time goes on and events unfold, Dan attempts to hide his aspirations of becoming a burlesque dancer from the people who perceive him as an alpha male. Despite their differences, can Sacha and Dan become pillars of support in each other’s lives?


The film has received numerous accolades including: “Directorial Debut by a Young Film Maker” at London International Film Festival (2021), Winner of “Best Film” at Paris International Film Awards (2021). Makeup has also won “Best Young Director” at Lonely Wolf Film Festival (2021), as well as being a finalist for “Best British Film”, “Best Queer Film”, “Best Actor” (Hugo Andre) at Lonely Wolf Film Festival (2021). In total, the film has won 15 awards, received 5 nominations and 2 honourable mentions.


Working in the film industry since the age of 16, Hugo has worked various roles in over 50 productions. Hugo wrote and directed his first short film at the age of 18, a film that has since amassed over 20 awards and nominations. 4 years ago, he wrote ‘MAKEUP’, which he later directed in between nationwide lockdowns, as a result of the covid pandemic.


Well versed in the formation of character driven films, Hugo approached this film with the same tenderness and attention to detail as his prior narratives. Hugo follows a running theme with his scripts – he is drawn to the trials and tribulations of friendship and the impact that certain relationships can have on not only your personality, but also on your mental health.
