About a month ago, I was flown out to Beverly Hills, CA by Glam and Subaru to shoot a video about my first car for www.firstcarstory.com, and I was beyond excited! Ok, and just a slight bit anxious. Of course, my first thought was “What should I wear?” Since I was instructed not to wear prints, white or black on camera, I thought a bold colorblock look would be nice. So I showed up to this incredible house in Los Angeles in my green and blue outfit, dressed and ready to go, but not knowing what to expect.
I came in the house, and was introduced to the team which included producers, directors, the camera crew, Glam squad and the makeup artist. While I got my makeup done by celebrity MUA, Annette Chaisson (she was amazing and ‘beat’ my face, beautifully), I chatted with the producers Krissy Wall and Max Dionne about the shoot. Basically they asked me every question about my experiences with my first car: how I got it, what it looked like, what type of music I listened to while driving it, what crazy adventures (aka trouble) I got into with it, etc. I shared some funny stories, like the one where my sister and I kinda sorta followed the rapper Eve down South Street in Philadelphia, while driving that car. Also, I shared stories about some road trips and other crazy times that fortunately didn’t make the final cut. 😉
So after prepping me, we went upstairs to shoot! And after shooting, and shooting, and re-shooting takes for about 2 hours, here’s the final product!
What do you think of the video? With a room full of people watching me shoot, I was super nervous at first. But after sharing some of the crazy stories, we all relaxed and had fun. In the end, I loved every moment of it!
