Today’s photo shoot was exceptionally interesting – this was taken mid-way through body painting which included plaster,powder and brush strokes to create a “mannequin” look,and the campaign involved high-end accessories handing from the body(no face shown) partially nude, very edgy.It’s intended to launch in the US at Nordstrom’s and Macy’s in 2014, and I am stoked to see the final results. I love the designers work.
Just a note about semi-nude or nude modelling – it’s like yoga, because you’re always flexing! ^^ Two birds, I guess!
VO:Me ^^ One of my favourite projects to date: I voice the characters – —and how I WISH I could actually “wave a wand” and bestow fluent Korean skills upon myself kk Extraordinary work by Sonny Side, Orielvis Padron, Tony Ruse Miniloop Media, Douglas Vautour. Working with awesome people makes my job all the sweeter. It’s gratifying to look at a finished product and reflect on how much work and talent went into that ‘minute of expression’:)
I often jokethat any trends existing in national English newspaper audio are my doing:) Today, I got to broadcast in film – and bless them.they let me wear flats. The MUA was good, and I LOVED how she butchered the eyelashes and glued them on soothly to give me popping eyes. Wrapped in 3.5 hours:)
I also give up on owning a flattering business suit that flatters me. Thank Buddha for stylists and plan B’s. I just don’t have a business suit bod. We voice folks are spoiled in that we don’t face the lights, make-up and costume side of the job, but I rather enjoyed this!
I am not a practitioner of yoga, so when I was approached to shoot this yoga tool, I was more than a little self-conscious of my lack of fitness. Made in India, the “Kurunta” is intended to aid in sleep, posture, flexibility and stress management. You can read about it in THE KOREA TIMES, coming soon!
For those K-pop fans wondering...yes, he is very handsome in person. He seemed a little shy, was very courteous to work with, and no, he doesn’t speak much English. I kept thinking, “I hope this is the last time I find myself waitressing!”
I know this, having acted it out with awesome colleague Adam Pierce. I also know that I cannot walk in high heels, let alone, “flounce”, to save my soul (though in my defense, those shoes were evil-see below). So much so that a whole scene had to be cut to accomodate my clumsiness.
This monster shoot lasted a record (for me) 23 hours. The 6 year old Jada put us all to shame, too.
CG MADNESS> As I’ve said before, working with Computer Graphics (CGs) can be a nightmare. It always amazes me how the directors can move so gracefully and yet, I feel like those ballet teachers from my childhood owe me an explanation.
It helps to have super-cool colleagues such as the lovely Angela Ko and perennially positive Jesse Day on hand to make you laugh…
