lumenas studios-two day shoot

1st one on set and ready to go at 7am!!
good job me!!
 i went ahead and pat myself on the back for being early!
and how ahhsome are my football dup brush holders?
yes, i love football!
this job is not for the squeamish!
i had a guy on set who would not stop sweating, i had to pat him down with napkins at least 20 times and powder his sweaty face and neck!
that's why i'm also a..
professional nose picker, dry lip skin picker, oily hair fixer upper, mustache plucker, ear hair plucker, gum spitter outer holder, nose blower tissue holder, dandruff brusher offer and of course all over basic powderer.
there is no limit to my services, i need my actors/models looking flawless!
(i also go through germ-x like no other!)
rob is an amazing british actor who was flown in from his current home town, l.a.
he was was cracking me up with all the different language accents he could do.
i've never seen such talent like him.
my favorite was his indian, from india accent.
i learned how to pronounce poo-poo perfectly!!
my magic wand always standing by.
people on set prob think i have a.d.d because i never sit down.
but..yah gotta be on it-on it!!!
no slacking here, i am constantly watching the monitors making sure no one is shiny or has hair fly-aways.
this job keeps you on your feet, that's why i always wear comfy shoes.
my cowboy boots are always a go-to for me:)
through my eyes.
watching monitors, making sure everyone looks their best.
this is what makes a good on set makeup artist/hair stylist.
you also have to be quick.
i changed her hair style about 5 times during the two day shoot.
i like to tell dirty jokes in between touch ups!
it calms the actors nerves!! lol
in this scene she was working with donor gerald, who shaves his head.
so i decided to tell her my favorite joke:
"why did the bald man cut a hole in his pocket?"
"to run his fingers through his hair!!!"
bahaha... this was her reaction!!!
three monitors for three different camera angles.
these guys weren't messing around, they were shooting with r.e.d cameras.
they are the gucci of cameras!! the ultimate and best you can get for now.
the shoot took place at lumenas studios, which is also an animation studio.
they had the most amazing hand made figures and molds of characters they turn into 3d for animated films.
films for disney, pixar and more.
these are all characters that have been in movies.
they are currently working on a top secret movie and hid all the new figures so that we couldn't take pictures of them.
good idea, cause they would've been posted by me!

last week i worked my booty off on a two day back to back shoot for a promo video.
i love video shoots!! they are so fast paced, you have to be on your game!!
thank goodness i quit drinking two years ago, because there is no time for a hangover!! lol
even though they are high stress and a lot of work they make me happy and i feel blessed to be doing what i love for a living:)
