Melanie Crump is a media make up artist and the founder and Academy Principal of the Bath Academy of Media Makeup.
Born and raised in Bath, Melanie left home as a teenager to train as a Makeup Artist in London. Since 2002 she has worked successfully in many fields of the media; Television Drama, Fashion, Entertainment, Music, News, Sport and Current affairs. Having quickly realized her potential in the industry, and making many key contacts through her professional and driven work ethic, she soon turned her attention to her second dream; creating an elite training facility for aspiring Makeup Artists in her hometown of Bath.
Set in the centre of a stunning heritage city with a strong connection to the creative industries, Bath itself has been the historical backdrop for many great television dramas and films such as The Duchess (2008), War Horse (2011) and Les Miserables (2013). Melanie herself was fortunate to find a wonderful location for BAMM, in the centre of the City close to the famous Royal Crescent, where she set about commissioning purpose built studios in the beautiful neo-gothic Christchurch Mews. The facilities within were designed by Melanie, to reflect as accurately as possible, the make up rooms that she herself spent so many years becoming familiar with, and create a professional, comfortable and realistic learning environment for her students.
She joined Most Haunted as a team member in 2013 for the online Halloween 6 part show.
