We've run I to an interesting situation with our first live-action feature. We're used to animation where this was never a problem :( At a table read today, we noticed that our lead (who we hadn't seen in person in two months) has grown out his hair. With shooting set to begin in December, this young man is going to have some serious locks going on! I suppose the easy thing would be to tell him to cut his hair (because long hair doesn't really work for the character) but complicating the situation is the fact that the actor is only twelve years old and he is autistic. We have worked with this actor before -- for our one other live-action project, "Epic Heroes" -- but the character had long hair. I spoke to my hair stylist for the film and she very honestly said this one was beyond her -- she could make short hair look long (with extensions etc) but making long hair look short? Not in her skill set -- if even possible! Does anyone have any ideas or advice?
