Los Angeles Production Coordinator | Wikipedia x Paramount Network Project

I collaborated with Tiger House Films Los Angeles brand video production company was approached for the second time by social media giant NowThis Media to produce a brand video production for Paramount Network’s primetime show American Woman and Wikipedia. I was involved as a Los Angeles production coordinator in this project.

Set in the center of Hollywood at Neuehouse, this brand video campaign was produced to highlight women’s empowerment by bringing to light the fact that only a small percentage of Wikipedia article editors are in fact, women. As a Los Angeles production coordinator I was thrilled to be part of this project.

Teaming with Paramount Network and their new show American Woman, NowThis Media and Tiger House Films brand video production company were able to produce a branded video production of an “all women edit-a-thon”.

The venue for the event, Neuehouse, is a brand new office and event space in the center of Hollywood. The location is a venue at the crossroads of art, culture, film and creative business. It is an ideal location for a forward thinking brand video production such as the collaboration between Tiger House Films and NowThis Media.

This brand video production is intended to reach a global audience through various social media channels including followers of American Woman on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and various other social media platforms.

Following the trend of social media brand video production and branded media to promote causes, our team at Tiger House Films was able to harness our extensive experience in this particular field to shoot this spot all within a twelve hour production day.

Creative Coordinator in Los Angeles | Motorcycle TV Commercial

Creative Coordinator in Los Angeles | Motorcycle TV Commercial

The Continental GT motorcycle commercial production was the first of two international commercial productions we created for Royal Enfield in conjunction with Storytellers.in from Mumbai, India. I got hired by THF as a creative coordinator in Los Angeles to work on this commercial. This spot for the new Continental GT, was shot over 5 days all over California with a stellar Tiger House Films commercial production team.

This first of two motorcycle commercial productions for Royal Enfield was shot in Downtown Los Angeles with an overnight production schedule. Our commercial producers shut down 4th street bridge and shot fireworks off of it, blocked 2nd street tunnel, lower Grand Ave and many blocks of Broadway to accommodate the stunts and precision riding necessary to pull off this motorcycle commercial production.

I was not only the creative coordinator in Los Angeles on this project but also did the wardrobe styling. I had 10 main casts to style. As a TV commercial wardrobe stylist I love working with a wide range of looks and stlyes that my clients request.

Royal Enfield is a historic Indian motorcycle manufacturing brand with the tag of “the oldest global motorcycle brand in continuous production”. The first Royal Enfield motorcycle was built in 1901. The Enfield Cycle Company is responsible for the design and original production of the Royal Enfield Bullet, the longest-lived motorcycle design in history.

This international motorcycle commercial production was an extreme challenge for our production company on many levels. The end results were beautiful and made the journey worth it.

Freelance Production Coordinator | Raw Gold Cosmetics Commercial

Freelance Production Coordinator | Raw Gold Cosmetics Commercial

Tiger House Films Los Angeles brand commercial production company was approached by new cosmetics brand Raw Gold Cosmetics to create a series of brand commercial productions for their new line of 24k Gold Face Mask products. I got hired by  THF as a freelance production coordinator.

The featured cosmetic mask was the 24k Ra Gold Mask which comes in a unique syringe style tube. THF brand commercial production focuses on the benefits of applying this product to the face and other areas of the skin, leaving the surface of the skin glowing and healthy.

In one portion of our series, the models in our brand commercial productions were all asked to give their raw reactions to the product before knowing what was being handed to them.

Our video production team was able to capture some very energetic and genuine model reactions to the product, ranging from their impressions on the packaging, to the way the mask felt during and after application.

THF brand commercial production team was able to capture multiple videos during our one day shoot for Raw Gold Cosmetics at the historic Mack Sennett Studios in Hollywood. Tiger House Films Los Angeles brand commercial production company created the video from pre-production all the way through post production and delivery of the project. As a freelance production coordinator I was managing the schedule, budget, the needs of crew members on set, and other general administrative duties.
Tiger House Films Los Angeles video production company worked in conjunction with a fashion photographer during our 12 hour brand commercial production day. The media was meant to give maximum launch exposure to the new cosmetics brand.

Creative Production Coordinator | Ikaria SS18 Commercial

Creative Production Coordinator | Ikaria SS18 Commercial

This collaboration is the second time the Tiger House Films team worked with CEO Lisa Storie and her brand Ikaria Resort Wear to produce a photo / video campaign. As a creative production coordinator it was a pleasure working on THF and IKARIA collaboration. This fashion video production / high fashion photo shoot for Ikaria was to debut their SS18 ready to wear collection of beautiful, luxurious coverups inspired by luxury travel destinations.

Our fashion video production team partnered once again with the professional photography duo Melis+Dainon . These two talented creatives are also the casting directors on this project and brought their beauty team along for the project. Melis and Dainon took on several aspects of the pre-production as well including arranging model flights and hotel / working with the Lions Agency.

The supermodel cast by Melis and Dainon for this production was Barbara Fialho from The Lions NYC . Previous to our shoot Barbara had just finished walking the Victoria’s Secret Runway in Shanghai as a Victoria’s Secret Angel and flew from NYC to Palm Springs for our production.

Barbara is stunningly beautiful and gave the camera incredible charisma. Her ability be aware of her body and how to move for camera allowed the creative team to work seamlessly with her. The lead designer behind the new Ikaria ready to wear collection, Leah Hulon created beautiful designs for the brand that fit the location  and mood perfectly. As a creative production coordinator I loved working in conjunction with the photo and video team.

The Palm Springs location that was chosen for the fashion production was nestled at the foot of the mountains bordering the Agua Caliente Indian Reservation. The location was a triumph of modern architecture and lush landscaping set upon the natural backdrop and harsh landscape of the California desert.

Las Vegas Hair and Makeup Artist | HIDOW Print Campaign

Las Vegas Hair and Makeup Artist | HIDOW Print Campaign

Traveling is one of the best parts of my job as a Las Vegas hair and makeup artist, which was where I worked on a print campaign for HIDOW. For this, as with every job, my goal was to match the brand identity and create the appropriate makeup looks for the client.

HIDOW is a company that creates pain management devices, including massagers, heating pads, etc. Most of the products are designed for people with an active lifestyle, as well as those who are prone to different types of muscle pain. The overall look of the shoot was designed to target sporty and active customers.

As a Las Vegas hair and makeup artist, I was assigned to work on four models, and my goal was to create the perfect looks for each of them so they would look great on print. Since the shoot was for a sports brand, we did not want the models to be all glammed up. We wanted to create a “no-makeup” look, but not so much that the models would look plain. I also designed the wardrobe styling. When working with a sports brand, the style is pretty straight forward. I love it when I am able to pull off great looks, even when the available items are limited because it allows me to be creative with the colors and shapes of the outfits.

One of the things I love about my job is that it teaches me how to be flexible. Traveling for a job is a prime example of this. I love planning what to bring and checking what I need ahead of the shoot so that I can come to the location ready to take on the task.

Another thing I love about this job is that I get to work closely with brands, most of which I would personally use and recommend. Usually, the producers are very detailed when it comes to the instructions and briefs in regards to the shoot, and they really appreciate it when you take the time to study the client’s brand identity and ensure that the looks I create suits the brand’s image.

Las Vegas Professional Makeup Artist | FC Scion Gala Video

Las Vegas Professional Makeup Artist | FC Scion Gala Video

While working in both fields, I have learned  that print makeup is quite different from video makeup. I was hired as a professional makeup artist in Las Vegas where I worked with a commercial production company called Tiger House Films.

Tiger House Films is a dynamic, multi-award winning full-service commercial and brand film production company headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, working in New York, San Francisco and nationwide. THF have the combined capabilities of an advertising agency, video production company, and post-production house.

Many brands enjoy shooting in Las Vegas as it can provide a variety of locations. For this particular shoot, I did makeup for actor, Vincent Veillon, and knowing the difference between photo and video makeup is essential for this type of job.

The TV show that we shot is a Swiss comedy show called 26 Minutes. They filmed in many different locations throughout Nevada. Since I really enjoyed the location, I am going to list down some of the things that make Las Vegas my favorite location:

  • Las Vegas is iconic. The city itself is a character, reminding the spectators of its fancy makeup and glittering lights, and people tend to associate it with party and fun.
  • Accessibility and flexibility. If you want to shoot in the dessert, you’re in luck! You’re already there, and if you want want complete isolation, it’s just a short drive away. If you want to shoot on the streets, there are several picturesque streets throughout the city. The city can also provide locations for various different types of shoots. Whether it would be TV shows, fashion, print, commercials, you name it, Las Vegas can provide it.
  • The city is busy with entertainment events. In Las Vegas, very day is a show. Entertainment is endless and non-stop. This creates job opportunities for artists, production companies, production people and everyone who is creative. As a Las Vegas professional makeup artist, you’ll have no trouble finding exciting projects to work on.

Professional Makeup Artist in LA | Hollywood Shine Beauty Editorial

Professional Makeup Artist in LA | Hollywood Shine Beauty Editorial

As a professional makeup artist in LA I was working with fashion model / influencer Kenzo Lauren on an editorial beauty shoot in Los Angeles. The fashion shoot entitled Hollywood Shine, has been published by Dear Velvet on their online blog. We found Kenzo while I was looking for fashion models in the Los Angeles area. We arranged this photo shoot in several locations in Hollywood, Venice and Santa Monica, launching our first fashion photo collaboration.

Most importantly we were going for a high end look on this shoot, inspired by the Oscars. From gold makeup to sparkling nails, the looks exuded Hollywood glamour. I managed Kenzo’s makeup and styling for this editorial. Eye makeup speaks volumes about your style and when done right, it has the power to be immensely transformative. So it did for Kenzo. I chose matching cocktail dresses to complete her look for this shoot.

As a professional makeup artist in LA, I always arrive to fashion shoots with a fully equipped kit of high-quality cosmetics in a wide variety of colors. Highlighter is the ultimate photo-ready secret. On this editorial I used gold and silver glitter as well for eye shadow. A little glitter liner is a super fun way to add some sparkle to your look. 

Dear Velvet is a diary of style, creativity and wanderlust. We first connected in 2015 with the DV team and since then, they have published several amazing articles about my work as a professional makeup artist in LA.

From the founder of DV : “Art and fashion, writing, photography and sheer curiosity keep me up late, playing in the digital world and on the road in the real one.”

Anyone with sensitive skin will benefit from the natural ingredients this company uses in all of it’s product lines. For this reason, many of my clients ask for this brand by name.

Our collaboration with LXMI started when I reached out to the brand through their website and requested their support of my work as a Los Angeles fashion and commercial makeup artist. Through that connection they sent me their most current products that I love to use. during the commercial shoots I love to use their Nilotica Goddess Glow Hydrating Illuminator, Pure Nilotica Hand & Body Melt Organic and Unrefined Nilotica Reserve creams.

Each of these products has their strong points including keeping the skin hydrated and glowing. Proper skin care is really important because our skin is the largest barrier against infection that we have.

Keeping our skin healthy and moist helps keep this barrier strong. Having clean and clear skin can help boost your confidence and keep you looking your best!

Los Angeles Makeup Artist Collaboration | Anastasia Beverly Hills

Los Angeles Makeup Artist Collaboration | Anastasia Beverly Hills

As a Los Angeles makeup artist, I often come across professional situations on set where I need a high end product. Whether I am working as a celebrity makeup artist or specifically for fashion, the best makeup produces the best results. Anastasia Beverly Hills creates prestige cosmetics, makeup—including cult-classics like Brow Wiz, Contour Kit, and Liquid Lipstick. Anastasia Beverly Hills is committed to cruelty-free product formulation, testing, and development. This approach to the creation of their products as well as the high quality contribue to me being a big fan!

As a Los Angeles makeup artist focusing on beauty and fashion production, I absolutely love Anastasia Beverly Hills. This makeup brand especially pops with vibrant eyeshadow colors and the signature Anastasia Golden Ratio Method. I like use all of their makeup products, many of my makeup clients ask for this brand by name.

I work constantly with fashion models and actors on commercial shoots which require many shades of colors and high quality of makeup. Anastasia Beverly Hills has it all. As an LA makeup artist I can see which colors match each individual. Everyone has their own unique style! I like to play with the colors of makeup and advise my clients what fits their complexion best. Anastasia Beverly Hills creates amazing colors of eyeshadows that allow me to be creative.

At the core, Anastasia Beverly Hills was founded on a set of principals that were derived from how the eyebrows define the face. I think Anastasia Soare said it best when she stated; “Our eyes are intrinsically trained to spot divine proportion and immediately associate it with beauty and harmony.” Inspired by this age-old ratio, Anastasia created a unique and breakthrough method of shaping brows. By following these principles, she could create a set of arches that perfectly framed and suited any face shape. The perfect combination to create the illusion of facial balance, symmetry, and proportion.

As a Los Angeles makeup artist, my Anastasia Beverly Hills make up kit helps in all of my fashion shoots to create the looks required from high end advertising agencies and commercial production companies.
