Actor Geoffrey Rush sums up Sangeet’s skill,
“I can easily declare, Sangeet is at the coalface, the cutting edge of these developmental make-up techniques. He is very much part of the vanguard. He has the quiet re-assuring skill of a surgeon, the camaraderie that makes an early morning make-up van sing, and he’s prodigiously fast and accurate.”
Sangeet will be on the Main Stage assisted by Lori MacGregor, opening the event with a demo entitled ‘Transfer, transhuman and the evolution of makeup FX’, creating a makeup using contoured, flat and tattoo transfers.
