Maritsa Maritz

Maritsa Maritz is a senior make-up artist who graduated with a Diploma in Performing Arts, specialising in make-up. She’s been in the industry since 2004.

Maritsa has worked with various production houses on many exciting projects. Recent projects for The Film Factory include “Vuil Wasgoed” and “Thys & Trix” where she was head of Make-up and Hair.

Maritsa was also head of the Hair and Make-up department for the highly anticipated film, “Fiela se Kind”. She says “Fiela se Kind” was a highlight in her career. “We put our hearts and souls into designing the characters and creating this film.

We hope the viewers will experience the same emotions we did while making it”.

“The Make-up & Hair Designer needs to develop the characters’ looks and we have to make sure it suits the actor. The biggest challenge of a period piece is to make sure that the characters really look like they come out of that time frame, so that it doesn’t look like a modern piece.”

“For me Fiela se Kind is a story about love and loss and happiness. It’s about how far you would go for the person that you love.”
