Los Angeles Production Coordinator | IKARIA Resort Wear SS18

Los Angeles Production Coordinator | IKARIA Resort Wear SS18

I was involved in the project as a Los Angeles production coordinator. Tiger House Films has produced a behind the scenes brand video production for our Ikaria fashion commercial / high fashion photo shoot. The project is behind the scenes for the debut of their SS18 ready to wear collection in a gorgeous private home location in Palm Springs. Ikaria’s luxurious coverups are inspired by the jet-setting lifestyle and exotic travel destinations.

This behind the scenes brand video production captures a rare glimpse into the process of shooting our fashion video / high fashion still photo shoot productions. The technical process of the creation of these campaigns is seldom captured due to the fact that our Los Angeles production company only shows the final released and finished products for brands and agencies.

Our supermodel talent for this brand video production was Victoria’s Secret supermodel Barbara Fialho who is originally from Brazil. Our beautiful talent has incredible charisma and her experience over 15 years in the industry shined on camera . Her background as a ballerina gives her the ability be aware of her movements and balance for camera.

Tiger House Films video production team worked seamlessly with photographers Melis+Dainon to create a combination photo & video campaign for Ikaria. This is the second collaboration with Melis+Dainon and they are featured in the behind the scenes production as well.

Palm Springs is the perfect location for a high fashion video and photo production. The dramatic desert mountains provide a beautiful backdrop where nature and bright sunshine are all a part of the incredible aesthetic.

Los Angeles Creative Coordinator | Royal Enfield Interceptor Commercial

Los Angeles Creative Coordinator | Royal Enfield Interceptor Commercial

I have many different responsibilities as a Los Angeles creative coordinator such as coordinating the wardrobe, the looks for hair and makeup, and the styling in regards to the client’s requests.

I’ve recently lent my services as a Los Angeles creative coordinator and wardrobe stylist in two commercials for Royal Enfield and Tiger House Films led a company called Storyteller.in based in Mumbai, India. Storytellers.in was founded in 2015 under the direction of Arun Gopalan. Over the last three and half years, the company has worked on many different campaigns that have earned them some notoriety in the industry.

Tiger House Films is an award-winning commercial production located in Los Angeles founded by Jason Kent Carpenter, who also works as a freelance producer and director. The Enfield Cycle Company makes motorcycles, bicycles, lawnmowers, and stationary engines under the name Royal Enfield.

I worked on the Storytellers’ first American shoot as their Creative Coordinator on a commercial shoot in Los Angeles. We shot for five days in various locations including Downtown LA, Malibu, and Pismo Beach.

My main duties on this shoot included:

  • Contributing to the creation of creative materials
  • Handling day-to-day project tracking and management with internal cross-functional teams and agency partners.
  • Assisting in creating and developing briefings
  • Becoming familiar with details of the campaigns in order to keep the team on track
  • Asset management (workflow / timelines), transferring between internal and external departments, and ensuring timely delivery.

Since 2012, I’ve worked with many different clients from all around the world. When I had started my journey in Shanghai, I never could have imagined the immense amount of experience in fashions films, commercials, web and TV contents, and photo shoots that I’ve obtained in the last six years. Working as a Los Angeles creative coordinator may not be an easy task, but it’s a fun one nonetheless.

Professional Makeup Artist Based In Los Angeles | Metropolis

Professional Makeup Artist Based In Los Angeles | Metropolis

This fashion commercial production was a collaboration that came together with Shanghai based model Jasin Chang, Director / Cinematographer Jason Kent Carpenter and me as coordiantor and professional makeup artist based in Los Angeles. The urban street wear aesthetic of this fashion project mixes an industrial grunge soundtrack with men’s high fashion.

Jason Operated the camera while I coordinated and did the hair and makeup as well as the styling for the shoot. The team chose the early morning to capture the light across the expansive concrete landscape.

The location we chose, the iconic Los Angeles River, has been the location for countless feature films, fashion commercial productions, music videos and branded content. Most notably, this L.A. River location was the scene for the hot rod drag race in the 1978 movie Grease, starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton John.

Our model Jasin, started off doing runways and now also shoots campaigns, ads and lookbooks. He has an interest in acting and over the summer landed a small role in a Luc Besson produced feature film. Besides fashion, Jasin also works in television commercials and commercial print or digital ads for major labels and brands. As a model he has walked major runways such as in Milan Fashion Week.

For more about Jasin Chang and his modeling and acting career, here is an interview with him on the Thatsmags website: http://www.thatsmags.com/beijing/post/12569/spotlight-jasin-chang-model
