Movie Magic

I just realize I haven't put up a post in over a month! And because I love nothing more than talking about myself, all of you Too Dolly readers should know that I had stuff to say, I just had no time to say it!! 
I have been off in the world of film making movie magic for the last month. It is finally back to reality, thus time to blog!

My very first film production was a huge success. My film crew virginity has been popped and I now know what it's like to work 16 hour days. Thanks to my friend Tracy - who was the Key Make-Up Artist for this production - she put me on her team of make-up artists and hair stylists and I now have some film experience under my belt.

I'm not exactly sure what I am allowed to say about this film, as it is not completed yet, so if you'd like to see a little IMDB teaser you can click HEREI am more than excited to see the final product! The cast and crew were all amazing people that I feel really privileged to have met and worked with all of them. A very funny coincidence was that I knew 3 people on the production from 3 very different times in my life. I was in acting school in Maple Ridge with one of the actors in the movie back when I was 16. I knew another actor in the film from when I was in UVIC for Theatre when I was 19. And I went to highschool with one of the camera guys who actually filmed me in a short film I did way back in the day! Small world we live in.

When shooting was done, we were treated to a night of fun & drinks where we could all see each other dolled up and not in our "work clothes". My friend Maura (who was the main beauty make-up artist for this production) let me do her hair really funky. Only Maura could really pull this off, especially with her reverse fire dyed hair. She is super unique and I have to share how cool her head looked!!

Fancy Sh'mancy!
