As per usual I have joined Sean Lerwill on one of his shoots for Men’s Health and Maximuscle. I have succumbed to the fact that I am a Sean Lerwill groupie. He is pretty awesome though so I’m not ashamed!
I started looking through his pics to choose a couple for the post and realised i had been present at all of the gigs above. I am so proud of all that he has achieved. He works hard, the hardest worker I have ever met. He is kind, considerate, loyal, honest and incredibly fair. Definitely a worthy role model if ever one was choosing to follow around another. I have learnt the commando ethos from Sean behaviour as it is ever present. The only one I may help Sean with at time to time is The Cheerfulness in the Face of adversity, he can be a wingey bugger, when he hasn’t eaten.
Now obviously buddy and a bucks are at no.1 but I must admit the THATGIRL team were one of the best I have worked with! Christina and Charli brought together an incredibly talented bunch of individuals. Obviously my co-star Sean Lerwill is incredibly professional and hard working so a joy to work with. The photographer/videographer team of Fashion blogger Nicole Markoff and David Sheldrick were brilliant. Powering through all day and coming up with incredible angles to shoot from amazing the visuals better than I could have ever imagined. Also one of the best skills and attributes I find most important in a photographer, videographer, DoP or cinematographer is putting you at ease. It just bodes well for a smoother, quicker and much more productive shoot, bringing out the best of everyone involved. These guys have that nailed! I would definitely be blessed to work with them again!
The make up artist was a beautiful woman called Emily Grove who was beautiful inside and out. Also very good at her craft. She made me feel glamorous all weekend! The Hair stylist and assistant to Josh Woods made the most of my dead straight lustre lacking locks and Katie Grands assistant Lucy brought along a wardrobe load of beautifully cut garments. I literally felt like I had woken up in a dream! My apartment(for the shoot) was over looking london bridge station and high enough to see over london, with an incredibly stylish roof top terrace. Stunning! Food supplied by the masters at Detox Kitchen and the most tantalising tastebud awakening juices from Imbibery London. (go for the Cashew Mylk, its…wow…just wow)I was also lucky enough to take Buddy along with me, who of course stole the show and got used in a few shots!
Thanks to the intense work out devised by Charli and Christina I was quite a sweaty mess throughout and felt the effects of the exercises. I must admit to being thankful for the fashion shots which gave me a breather between exercises! Even now my muscles are saying hello!
Anyway I am just so incredibly Thankful and blessed to have been part of such a great team. They also were so positive and complimentary to me that they asked me to dance which we ended up using in the video. It was really lovely to be able to use my Dance skills again. It reminded me of the Laura Marling shoot. Another beautiful job.
Thank you, to the team and all my support team who have kept me going through out the tough times to be able to still be in the industry and come across jobs like this one!
Thank you, thank you, thank you! The Galway film Fleadh (which I still feel weird saying, and feel like I’m saying it wrong) was awesome! Gutted I couldn’t stay any longer than the screening of The Callback Queen and a quick bite in Eddie Rockets but even though it was brief it was definitely worth it!
As always I had my trusty Polaroid camera to snap the scene! Admittedly I took more pics of the burger as it was disgustingly layered (ahh-may-zing).
The vibe was positive the people were fabulous, so all round it was a great night out! Sean Lerwill’s cameo got a hearty laugh from the audience and my violent streak was definitely visible, poor Sean! (Which one?)
It was great catching up with the incredibly talented Sean o’Meallaigh who not only was a lead in the film chosen to open the fleadh but also one he wrote and directed himself! Also the lead Amy Joyce Hastings, who produced and starred in The Callback Queen also had her film nocturne passage screened the day after! I’m so lucky to have worked with such an amazingly talented bunch of lovely people!
Just wanted to say a huge Thank You to BAM. I love my new clothes and am looking forward to being a part of the team!!! So excited!!! Put on my lovely base layer today, it’s a wee bit chilly! So soft and snuggly!
I ♥ BAM!!!
This time it snowed and I was too ill to getup in it. Anyone who has the horrendous tummy bug going around, I feel for you!! It is not fun!! I had a little nosey through the BAM pics taken in Spain to cheer myself up!
Just wanted to say another Huge Thank you to Women’s Fitness and Wathletic. The shoot was fun, easy and quick. Well actually the yoga was not so easy, I had done a killer leg session two days before and so the DOMs were kicking in and the balancing was not happening! We still managed to get the shot though, so all good!
Ok so i just wanted to say a Huge Thank you to Danielle Holbrook and Dave Gordon for getting such a brill team together and getting us all out to Spain! Initially I was a little miffed to miss the snow but after the 5hr wait on the Tarmac was desperate to get out of the UK! Thanks to the Now named Squeezy jet we had the life sucked out of us on what was supposed to be our rest day! One of those moments you resent as you will never get those 5hrs back. I must admit I’m only counting 3 of them as a write off as Thank God and technology geeks for dongals and Love Film and IPads.
Anyways we made it to Spain! Where it was sunny and warm and beautiful! Kinda stopped missing the snow as soon as the sun showed its face!
Just a quick half hr car ride and we were at our destination!
Rooms claimed, bags unloaded, showers had and we were all slightly more human, and ready for dinner!
Unfortunately I couldn’t sleep the first night, I think Squeezy had left me so irritated and frustrated I hadn’t completely unwound.
I’m so lucky to have been working with such funny, friendly caring people. Sean Lerwill kept us all in stitches with his stories and jokes, John was always eager to jump off or somersault off something and Danielle is just a genuinely beautiful person inside and out. Dave the owner of BAM had a great energy and kept us focused, while Hayden snapped away even while we acted like idiots.
I just want to say a huge Well Done and Thank you to @SeanLerwill . You have done so well over the last year, and have taught me a hell of a lot. About soooooooooooooo many things. I just wanted everyone to appreciate the hard work you put into this industry and how hard work does pay off! Cover model, sponsored athlete, writer, sports model, script writer, personal trainer, my nutritionist and so much more. Thank you for making me believe in myself and realise I’m a lot more capable than I had myself believe.
Thank you Lerwills xx
No I’m not talking about my Saturday night. Well technically I am, and yes if I’m honest I was a title wrecked, couldn’t complete one of @SeanLerwill workouts! Gt about 15mins in and flaked! I personally think it wasn’t my weak woman brain but more the blessing of a busy few weeks workwise!
Anyways back to the matter of a great film being very poorly rated previously and my desire to counter act, some idiots opinion. Wrecked directed by Micheal Greenspan, written by Christopher Dodd and starring the brilliant Adrien Brody, is definitely worth a watch. More so in fact, I would actually say must watch for actors and actress’s. With hardly any speech throughout, I was hooked from start to finish. I must admit being ever so squeamish I did have to look away at a couple of points but mainly through my fingers as I didn’t want to miss any detail that would start to make sense of the film. We are literally kept guessing throughout the whole of the film as to what really happened to leave Brody in his predicament. I really don’t want to divulge much more as I want everyone to make their own opinions. I personally was very pleased, with my choice of movie for Saturday night.
It was a new experience of movie watching. Slightly like buried but so much more, that’s the most I’m saying.
What did you think of it?
