First of all, let me elaborate on how POWERFUL social media is! Thanks to one of my friends, I reached out to a correspondent from Damn Write Originals who posted on Twitter that she was looking for a makeup artist for a short film. Once she responded to my message, she viewed my body of work on my Instagram page as well as my portfolio. We later conversed over the phone, and I accepted the offer to become the key makeup artist for the super short series film, Queer of a Kind

The scheduled two-day shoot fit my schedule perfectly. Just days after my birthday, I was excited to add this project to my portfolio and body of work. The cast and crew worked together to bring the vision to life of a story that will indeed have the audience wanting for more. Everyone was friendly, professional and welcomed each other with open arms.

I had the pleasure to work alongside with fellow creatives who are passionate about their crafts.

The experience was enjoyable and I look forward to working with Damn Write Originals on future projects.

Queer of a Kind is an awesome short film written by Nakia Stephens and directed by Charite Mattis. In this short film, Autumn finds herself in an interesting dilemma, her wild-card sister has an easy solution. Check it out. 

Thank you to the entire crew at Damn Write Originals for putting your trust in my craft! Much success to you and all of your films. It was an enjoyable experience working with you all. 

 It is an amazing feeling to see your name on the credits.

Lastly...

Before I conclude this post, I want to stress the importance of promoting yourself on social media. If you are not aware of this, then you should sit down and do some research. Many careers have manifested from the use of social media. If you are an entrepreneur, creative, new or established, it is vital to market yourself and your business on social media. You never know who is watching. I have been blessed with many opportunities from my Instagram page. You are a brand and always represent your brand professionally in all aspects, including social media. I am a witness.

Be great and amazing,
