Quick update for those in Vancouver, about Holly North.
I found out that you don’t need to register or sign up for anything to buy from them, you can just pop over to their location near Boundary Road and buy what you like. They have a nice range of professional brands and products, so go crazy (like I did ;-)).
They were really nice, too!
I’ve been given the opportunity to be the Key Hair and Make-up artist for a charities advert to be shown at their red carpet events and such!
The advert features a young girl, so make-up is going to be very natural, with some shimmer for the like for a “dream-like” sequence. The producer has a fair idea about how she wants the hair and make-up to look, but we’re going to discuss it further the next time we meet up. I know I said in my last post that I didn’t think I was ready to be a Key, but there isn’t a hoard of actors to work on so I’ll be fine, and it’s such a great opportunity! I’ve been adding bits and pieces to my kit but I’m going to go on a major shopping spree this week for the items on my list that I haven’t bought yet. There’s a great shop that a few pro MUA’s have mentioned here in Vancouver called Holly North. I need to find out if I need to be registered with them to buy from them, but I’m going to try there for some things as they apparently have a decent range of products and brands aimed at people within the entertainment industries.
I was also contacted recently by a guy I messaged about helping out on their next low budget, independent movie. We’re meeting up this week (in a public place for safety reasons of course!). It’s all go right now. Long may it continue!
By the way, does anyone know of any good, professional reel/portfolio sites that may be of interest?
