Clydebank College, HND Makeup Artistry

7 Mar

So, best beloved, you’re all gagging to know how my interview for a place on the above course went.  While you would be forgiven for thinking that they were interviewing me to see if I was a suitable candidate, in fact what actually happened was that I interviewed them to see whether their course is in the running to be the Next Amazing Fun Thing that I do.

As you can imagine, competition for this accolade is FIERCE.  But I am pleased to announce that the Clydebank College did very well indeed.  The course sounds interesting, challenging and varied.  The course director and lecturer that interviewed me seemed cool.  Tick, tick.

I was surprised (and a little deflated) by how many others there were being interviewed, but not surprised by the fact that I was 15 years older than most of them.  I was not surprised to be told that we’d be expected to ‘look the part’ (ie dress as if we are already working in the industry), but I was surprised that this meant wearing a lot of makeup every day; I had assumed that, because of the practical nature of the tutorials, that we would be practicing on each other and that it’d be better for us to show up with bare faces.  Anyhoo.

Clydebank College is situated in Dalmuir.  I feel quite sorry for it actually.  The walk from the train station to the college was uninspiring to say the least, past buildings that on the ground floor were solid shutters, grills, bars.  Everything required to keep desperation and poverty out.

The college itself is nice though, new and big and seemed to have a lot going on.  I would be very happy to study there.  If candidates are being selected on the basis of elderly-ness, Australianism, fox-factor, passion and really-badly-wanting-it, I’m a shoe-in.  If they’re going to be sticking to their pesky entry requirements then not so much.

I’m certainly not holding my breath because the course seems to have a LOT of applicants, and there are only about 30 places available.  I sincerely hope Clydebank College recognises the rare opportunity they have been given to align themselves to the Imogen Maxwell brand at this early stage of my glittering career.

I’ll find out within 2 weeks and let y’all know.  If they won’t have me then I’ll just bloody well teach myself body painting.  Recruiting nude models now!
