I was watching the scene from Apocalypse Now (great movie) where Charlie Sheen's charter and the cook are seaching the jungle for mangos. It caught my attention because both their faces seemed unusually grey compared with everything else.

Was this look achieved through a collaberation between the cinematographer and the make-up artist?

Has anyone out there ever requested that an actor's face be made up in an otherwise ugly color so that your lighting creates an interesting effect? What effect...please elaborate.

i've used bright, reddish and colorful makeup for material that was going to be destaurated and tinted blue in post. it worked great. i've also experimented with dark makeup on parts of the face to create deeper shadows, which also worked great. i read somewhere that they did this on pulp fiction and this was the time in my filmmaking career that i everybody goes through where i just had to copy everything tarantino did... ;-)
