What’s in a face? What makes us who we are? Is it our voice, our face, our hair, our clothes? What makes you famous? These questions came to mind on a recent project for Sophos.
Creator Tyler McKeller came to us with the task of transforming 3 performers into 24 famous singers and put them on screen – all at the same time. Think, “We are the World,” only purposely funny.
The shoot required changing women to men, men to women, young to old, you get the idea. It was a Herculean task made possible with the skills of make-up artists, wig specialists, wardrobe stylists, and the amazing talents of Oyoyo, Juilia, and Patrick. It takes a lot to be famous.
The results were astounding, mind blowing even. Some of the transitions were so complete that capturing them in these stills seemed like voodoo.
From Willie Nelson to Beyonce, Lionel Richie to Celine Dion, Pink to Bob Dylan. It was trippy to have them walk into the room full of the famous.
Now, guess the celebrity:
So much goes into creating an icon, that’s why they’re famous.
Here’s to the talented makeup, wardrobe, wig stylists who make the entertainers we love.
You can see the final results here: We All Need I.T.
