In January of 2009 I was hired to be assistant makeup and hair artist for the movie Feed the Fish. I wasn't sure how excited I was just coming off a film in December that was basically shot outside in the woods for about 14 days in the freezing cold.
When I read the script all I could think was will this Wisconsin makeup artist ever shoot a movie in the Summer or Fall??
I drove up to Door County and the closer I got to my destination the more it started to snow...needless to say we woke up to almost 10 inches of snow the next day...thank God that we were going to be shooting inside that day! I was really wondering what I got myself in to!
From the moment I got there I knew this was going to be a great movie! The cast and crew were amazing to work with. My first time meeting Tony Shalhoub I was so nervous! I had to go to his hotel and get him ready for some television interviews. He was so nice and it was such a pleasure to work with him.
I was recently called to come to the Milwaukee Film Festival and work with Tony again. We shot photos of him for the new DVD cover and he also filmed a Public Service announcement on saving the film incentives in Wisconsin.
I've attached some photos and the trailer below. It is playing in some limited venues so check out there website. It will be out on DVD in January too! It is (the feel good film of the winter:)
