Eva von Bahr and Love Larson have been nominated to Oscar for Makeup and Hairstyling twice. This for the work in the movies The 101-Year-Old Man Who Skipped Out on the Bill and Disappeared and A man called Ove.
Today they were at the Swedish Film Institute to talk about their work. Eva von Bahr and Love Larson told us they do everything together and gave us some insight in the work of making people transform into totally different shapes.
The characters they worked with that resulted in Oscar nominations were hard indeed. To turn Robert Gustafsson into 100 year old Allan Karlsson took 4,5 hours. A lot of work and time to do every day…
They gave us a glimpse of the Oscar race, how it is and what it means to be shortlisted. It’s really inspiring to hear professional artists like Eva von Bahr and Love Larson talk about their work, what they can create is undoubtedly fantastic!
