Team Kate recently worked with DFDS SEAWAYS, the Danish International Shipping & Logistics company, creating the injuries and casualty simulation for a large onboard training drill. Kate worked closely with the DFDS Team prior to the event to find out exactly what was needed for the exercise. On the date of the event, Kate and her team of two additional artists, boarded the ferry in Dover and spent the (choppy) crossing apply prosthetics to ten "Priority Patients" and general wounds to 30 "Walking Wounded". Kate had pre-made prosthetics to include open and closed compound factures, deep lacerations with embedded glass and metal, full thickness electrical and steam burns. Casualties had been sourced from friends and family of the crew as well as crew members themselves. Once the ferry had docked in Dunkerque the training exercise took place with added smoke, power outages and alarms sounding - the darkness and the smoke became disorientating for the passengers and the crew set about rescuing them, taking walking wounded out to a safe place and dealing with the Priorty Casualties who were all positioned in various places around the ship.

And here are two great commendations from past clients:
We have used Kate for several years as the makeup Artist for the Advanced Trauma Life-Support courses we run in Eastbourne. She has been by far the best make up artists we have ever had and has provided exceptionally detailed make up effects to ensure our models have realistic injuries for the courses we run. Kate is always extremely reliable, prompt and professional in her dealings with us and I would have no hesitation in recommending her services.

It was a pleasure working with you Kate. You were easy to communicate with prior to the drill and easy to work with once onboard. I know you came prepared, but what you achieved in 2 hours on a slightly choppy crossing was amazing. The crew and ‘passengers’ are still talking about the moulage even now. When we do this type of drill again I shall have no doubts about calling upon your services and I shall be recommending you to our Sister Vessels too for when they do their large drills.
