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.

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.
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

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.

Celebrity Makeup Artist Los Angeles | Essentia Billboard

Celebrity Makeup Artist Los Angeles | Essentia Billboard

Being a celebrity makeup artist Los Angeles has some totally fun perks. The other day I was at the Grove, and the advertisement I worked on appeared on the billboard! This is one of the projects I had fun working on, and what I am proud of, is that this particular campaign I did with Essentia called the Overachievers Nation was marketed heavily throughout the United States. We shot with the celebrity singer and songwriter, Arlissa, who flew all the way from London. She looked gorgeous in the advertisement.

My goal is to keep the consistent work I am getting as a celebrity stylist and makeup artist in Los Angeles who works with video shoots for big brands. For this campaign, I worked with STORIES International which is a trusted agency and commercial production company from Los Angeles. They have handled campaigns for well-known companies such as Sony, Subaru, KFC, IKEA, etc. STORIES International has a long list of clients on its website. The Overachievers Nations is directed by the talented Austin Will, who has done works for Puma, Nike, and other active lifestyle-related campaigns.

The campaign took us one day to shoot. We did the production at Hotel Cafe which is a Hollywood club. I was excited to get my hands on the job to shoot on that day. I did the celebrity stylist tasks first and we started choosing pieces for Arlissa’s wardrobe. She was fun to style because she got the unique, fit and gorgeous look perfect for the Essentia brand.

After taking care of her wardrobe, we immediately proceeded to Arlissa’s makeup. For her makeup, we chose the natural look. The concept of the video is centered on what she does, that is why we want her to look as natural and comfortable as she regularly does. I really liked working on the look because she seemed effortlessly stunning in the photos, especially when I saw the ad on the billboard.

The advertisement was also shown on different platforms all over the United States. It was seen in print, online and billboard, including that one in the premium location at the Grove, Los Angeles. I always feel delighted when I  see a campaign I worked on, especially this Overachievers Nation project. Essentia was a great company to work with. It was a pleasure to complete this beautiful advertisement. If you want to have a peek of the advertisement, you can also see the video on their website.

Essentia currently provides smooth tasting alkaline bottled water and has been popular with athletes who play physically demanding sports or go through lots of energy and demanding tasks every day. These people need to replenish and refresh after their arduous workouts. Arlissa was indeed a perfect person for this ad as she performs and burns through energy very quickly on stage.

Overall, it was a memorable experience and seeing the billboard made me realize how rewarding it is to be a celebrity stylist or celebrity makeup artist. Los Angeles is a great place for this profession. You get to meet amazing people and brands, and you get to see your work shown and admired by strangers as well as the general public.

Personal Stylist and Makeup Artist in LA | Salvation Mountain Photoshoot

Personal Stylist and Makeup Artist in LA | Salvation Mountain Photoshoot

As a personal stylist and makeup artist in LA I was working with wedding, lifestyle and portrait photographer Radostina Boseva ( Joy ). Joy’s client, Viki  asked her to arrange a shoot for her 18th birthday. Viki then contacted me to take care of her personal wardrobe styling and hair-makeup during our one day photoshoot.

We were shooting on both film and digital, Joy stated: I love to shoot with both film (yeah, the old school film rolls) and digital. The images that you will see here are primarily shoot on film, because I love the colors and the dreamy look.

As a personal stylist and makeup artist in LA, I love to travel for work to beautiful places. For this photo shoot, our location was Salvation Mountain, Salvation Mountain is a hillside visionary environment created by local resident Leonard Knight in the California Desert area of Imperial County, north of Calipatria, northeast of Niland near Slab City, and several miles from the Salton Sea.

From Radostina Boseva about our shoot: One of the most interesting, challenging and fun photoshoots that I did last year, actually happened at the very end on December 30. I flew down to Los Angeles from San Francisco and together with the fantastic fashion stylist and makeup artist Luca Buzas we drove down all the way to Salvation Mountain for this colorful and fun birthday photoshoot. The entire session was photographed on film and I think only film could preserve all those beautiful colors in the California desert.

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 photoshoot 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 makeup artist in LA, I always arrive at fashion shoots with a fully equipped kit of high-quality cosmetics in a wide variety of colors. Highlighter is the ultimate photo-ready secret. In 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.”

I had the luck of working with Instagram celebrity influencer Taylor Tomasi Hill on this campaign. We went for a natural beauty makeup look with wavy hair style.

Our fashion shoot started early in the morning at one of the 5-star luxury hotel suites in Shanghai, China. We had a quick meeting about the beauty makeup style we were going for. Taylor preferred focusing more on wardrobe styling so we wanted to keep her makeup natural.
