Silk Route Music Festival Commercial Shoot

Silk Route Music Festival
Commercial Shoot

This past weekend m’lady and I went to the land of wild ponies to shoot a commercial for the Silk Route Music Festival in Cyprus.

With my glow-in-the-dark skin and Jenn’s almond eyes of joy we were the perfect hires for a commercial to air all over the Middle East and Russia…blended right in with those Persian and Iranian girls, practically twins.

Like most beach shoots with perfectly clear skies, it was freezing and I honestly believed for a moment there that my nipples were going to push out of my skin and skidder on down the beach they were so erect. A park ranger came by and gave the hula hoop a whirl. (And, as is the norm for our generation, everyone captured the moment via their cellular devices.)

To anyone who has ever mistakenly thought I was well adjusted or could handle myself responsibly in situations where others are present, ya’ll some silly ass geese. I’m awkward as fuck. My social anxieties are evident even when on a set. I’m tall and thus normally am placed in the back in group shots. This is great because then I can really cut loose and explore my dance moves…get real wild with that shit. I, unlike most gals, don’t give a flying fuck if I’m on camera or not. You need a filler, someone who will have only the back of their arm in a shot? I’m your girl. No ego here, work is work. As long as I will get a copy and credit, I’m golden. I can be seen above “blending in" with all the beautiful people…and by that I mean standing out in a painfully profound way.

It hurts to be this cool, it really does.
