#12: The Oscars on a Budget
The hair and makeup team are often the unsung heroes of a film crew. They transform everyday actors into different people, and most of us don’t even know their names. This rings true for Adruitha Lee and Robin Mathews, who only had $250 to work with for the hair and makeup of Dallas Buyers Club.
A budget of $250 is pretty low for the average makeup-loving person, much less a whole movie! Robin Mathews told Vanity Fair that Dallas Buyers Club was the most under-budgeted project she had ever worked on, but she pulled it off. She pulled it off so well, in fact, that her team earned a 2014 Oscar for their outstanding artistry.
