Hair Artist

Joburg based makeup and hair artist Julene Paton has been nominated for a British Independent Film Award (BIFA) following her work on ‘I Am Not A Witch’.


South African makeup and hair artist Julene Paton has been nominated for a BIFA in the best make-up and hair design category for “I AM NOT A WITCH”.

The film was shot last year in Zambia. Julene is the first South African crew member to be nominated for a BIFA (as far as we know!) and this is a HUGE HONOUR for Julene and South Africa!! The film is being classed as a satire focussed on African womanhood.

“After a minor incident in her village, nine-year-old Shula is exiled to a travelling witch camp where she is told that if she tries to escape she will be transformed into a white goat. As she navigates through her new life, she must decide whether to accept her fate or risk the consequences of seeking freedom.”

We are exceptionally proud of Julene and think that the movie itself looks brilliant! You can watch the trailer below and see some of the work done by Julene.
