When two people are brought together from completely different walks of life, it can make for awkward circumstances, especially when they both have their secrets.

Sacha (André), an introverted French ex-chef, moves to London to begin his new life as a food critic. Moving into a rented room in a house belonging to Dan (Masheter), a well-respected London stockbroker, the pair are forced into an unlikely friendship.


As time goes on and events unfold, Dan attempts to hide his aspirations of becoming a burlesque dancer from the people who perceive him as an alpha male. Despite their differences, can Sacha and Dan become pillars of support in each other’s lives?

Makeup has also won “Best Young Director” at Lonely Wolf Film Festival (2021), as well as being a finalist for “Best British Film,” “Best Queer Film,” and “Best Actor” (Hugo Andre) at Lonely Wolf Film Festival (2021). In total, the film has won 15 awards, received five nominations and two honourable mentions.


Working in the film industry since the age of 16, Hugo has worked in various roles in over 50 productions. Hugo wrote and directed his first short film at the age of 18, a film that has since amassed over 20 awards and nominations. 4 years ago, he wrote ‘MAKEUP,’ which he later directed in between nationwide lockdowns as a result of the covid pandemic.


Well-versed in the formation of character-driven films, Hugo approached this film with the same tenderness and attention to detail as his prior narratives. Hugo follows a running theme with his scripts – he is drawn to the trials and tribulations of friendship and the impact that certain relationships can have on not only your personality but also on your mental health.

I'm the Sr. Film Writer and Community Manager for I write, direct and produce short films with my production company, Good Stew Productions. Though it's difficult to answer this question when asked, I'd say my favorite movie is “The Big Chill.” I enjoy photography, poetry, and hiking and I adore animals, especially elephants. I live in Arizona and feel it's an outstanding and inspirational place to live.
