We need someone with Intermediate experience with making fake scars, wounds and blood.
for our short Horror/Thriller film "Beyond the Reaches of Light".

Short Synopsis:
When a librarian, named Alice, is drawn towards a cursed, war-torn book… She is targeted by a mysterious entity that draws upon psychological horror to torture its victim's minds. She encounters different spine-crawling scares throughout her journey home as she tries to live her normal, boring life.
Alice must endure these horrors and discover the link between the incidents and the book before it’s too late. However, an unexpected visit from her brother leaves Alice with more questions than answers.
