Movie Magic


There’s another part of my life I like to keep private as I am known in my world as a “make up artist,” however, this is the year to let it all out!  I love acting.  I love movies.  I love anything that has to do with anything in front of or behind a camera.  From shooting to editing, I find film one of the most fascinating mediums for art…in the world.  You can manipulate a single frame, one blink, with music, context, and all of a sudden that one blink is telling years of story.

I was recently cast in a music video, “Trophy,” as a paparazzi (when it airs of course I’ll post!) and had an amazing time working with the cast and crew.  It happened to be the same day as the Mexican Billboard Awards (Oct 10th 2013).  I decided to snap a quick shot of “the scene.”


In the music video, I was cast as “paparazzi,” and caught some wonderfully candid photos of the artist, who is going to be a huge sensation this year!  His music video concept for, “Trophy,” was one I found admirable.  He is taking a “Macklemore” type of direction where “ho’s” “chains” “designer duds” and the traditional slinging guns and words mentality is not necessary to be an artist of rhyme.  I was so impressed, and he was so NICE!


The crew invited me to visit their sounds stage and filming studio in Downtown Los Angeles after my shoot wrapped, so of course I took the invitation!  I was so close to being added for another featured role, however, I had a Jr League meeting to run to, so I had to jet.  All in all, I had an amazing time, met wonderfully talented people, ate some good food, and left with IMDB credit to my name!  I’d say, “I’m not in Kansas anymore,” however, in LALA Land, anything seems as normal as Oz.
