Film Production Coordinator | PIAGET Commercial with celebrity Hu Ge

As a film production coordinator, I got hired by Fulldawa Films. Fulldawa commercial production company was approached by PIAGET to create a series of brand commercial productions for their new line of luxury watch products. We produced this commercial spot in Shanghai, China. Our celebrity actor for this spot was Hu Ge, one of China’s most popular actors.

Hu Ge, also known as Hugh Hu, is a Chinese actor and singer. While studying at the Shanghai Theater Academy, he was invited to play the leading role Li Xiaoyao in the 2005 television series Chinese Paladin, and immediately skyrocketed his career.

About Fulldawa: Established in Paris, Fulldawa Films is a feature and commercial production company. Fulldawa is an independent award-winning production company which has been ‘crashing the party’ ever since its inception in 2004.

About Piaget: Mechanical masterpieces defined by pure lines and timeless elegance, Piaget luxury watches figure among the most prestigious ambassadors of the watchmaking world. Since 1957, the Manufacture has made a name for itself as the master of ultra-thin Swiss watches after having created one of the thinnest movements ever made. An expertise that allows the Maison to work diamonds, as well as hard and precious stones, ad infinitum on cases, dials and bracelets, without ever weighing down the delicacy of its luxury watches. Immediately noticed on the wrists of the world’s elite, the Piaget style brought originality to the world of men’s watches and women’s watches.

TV Commercial Wardrobe Stylist | New York Life Insurance

TV Commercial Wardrobe Stylist I New York Life Insurance

As a TV commercial wardrobe stylist in California, I had the opportunity of working with Tiger House Films commercial production company’s team on New York Life Insurance videos multiple times during this year.

Our theme for this commercial video production was “Celebrating Milestones: Diwali”
Diwali is a Hindu festival of lights, held in the period October to November. It is particularly associated with Lakshmi, the goddess of prosperity, and marks the beginning of the fiscal year in India. In total we had approximately 15 cast members for these 3 videos for the same Diwali theme. All of our cast members were bringing multiple wardrobe choices and I prepared outfit options as well matching to New York Life Insurance previous advertisements.

A TV commercial wardrobe stylist is one of the most trending businesses within the fashion and commercial world internationally. What a wardrobe stylist does is pick the clothing and accessories for TV commercials, editorials, print or advertising campaigns and music videos produced by advertising agencies and production companies. This profession is really an essential element in the process of creating advertising campaigns and commercials.

As a TV commercial wardrobe stylist based in Los Angeles, I mostly work on TV commercials, branded videos, and campaigns. I really enjoyed collaborating with the creative team on this New York Life Insurance web commercial.

I was involved as a Los Angeles production coordinator in this 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.

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.

Creative Coordinator in Los Angeles | Motorcycle TV Commercial

Creative Coordinator in Los Angeles | Motorcycle TV Commercial

I got hired by THF as a creative coordinator in Los Angeles to work on this 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. 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

I got hired by THF as a freelance production coordinator. 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.

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.

Creative Production Coordinator | Ikaria SS18 Commercial

As a creative production coordinator it was a pleasure working on THF and IKARIA collaboration. This is the second time that the Tiger House Films team worked with CEO Lisa Storie and her brand Ikaria Resort Wear to produce a photo / video campaign. 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.

Production Coordinator based in Los Angeles | Mani Jassal SS18 Fashion Video

Production Coordinator based in Los Angeles Mani Jassal SS18 Fashion Video

I was hired by Tiger House Films as a production coordinator based in Los Angeles to create Mani Jassal SS18 fashion video. Tiger House Films Los Angeles video production company teamed up with Toronto based Indian fashion designer Mani Jassal to create a fashion video production for her SS18 collection of traditional Indian designs with a modern edge.

The fashion collection was inspired by a story of an inner journey from a chaotic self-image to inner peace in the garden of desire. Our model Vita Mallela flew in from New York to showcase Mani Jassal’s designs at an Italian villa in the Hollywood Hills.

This was Tiger House Films Los Angeles video production company’s debut collection with Mani Jassal. Her large social media following and rapid growth globally proves the ever increasing demand for a brand like hers. Her aesthetic is widely recognized all across the world with her pieces being worn by celebrities and influencers like Ashanti, Nazanin Mandi, Madison Beer, Bebe Rexha, Sonam Bajwa, Gigi Gorgeous. Her clothing has also been published in international and national magazines like Vanity Fair, Vice Magazine, Playboy, Marie Claire and Stardust.

Tiger House Films Los Angeles fashion video production team was able to capture multiple looks during our one day shoot in Hollywood. My job as a production coordinator based in Los Angeles was keeping us on schedule and making sure we shot all the Mani Jassal SS18 styles we planned capturing. Staying lightweight and mobile along with a strict shooting schedule allowed us to move around the multi level location quickly and efficiently to give Mani the maximum production value for her collection’s photos and fashion video.
