Beloved Vivian Girls

I was hooked after read the treatment by Alicia J. Rose for "Golden and Green". HOOKED! The description of the video was a magical melding of two sources Wisconsin Death Trip and my undying favorite outsider artist Henry Darger. My mind pretty much melted right then and there.

I was so excited to work on this project and come up with a creepy/scary/cute/otherworldly look for the ladies cast as the Vivian Girls. Here's the evolution in pictures:

This is David Scott "Wig Master" trimming Shayla's wig.

Wardrobe mistress, Nicole Cook making the finishing touches on the magenta bows.

Gymnasts Uli and Miranda of Portland's Kazum stay limber between shooting.

This is just a testament to how hard these girls worked on this video. These champs really powered through. We started calling their days "ballerina bootcamp". fierce.
