LIPSTICK CITY

A VISUALLY SUMPTUOUS EXPLORATION OF THE DRAG PERSONA & MODEL SHEA COULEÉ, THIS CROWD-FUNDED SHORT FILM IS A STRIKING FUSION OF DANCE, MUSIC, AND FASHION. WHEN HIGH-END FASHION MODEL MISS COULEÉ DISCOVERS EVIDENCE THAT HER POWERFUL HUSBAND, MR., ISN'T THE FAITHFUL MAN SHE THOUGHT SHE MARRIED, SHE TEAMS UP WITH HER ALLY SHEA TO DIVE INTO A GLAMOROUS AND GRITTY UNDERWORLD RUN BY THE POWERFUL “CHIC” AND EXACT HER REVENGE. 

AS A CO-PRODUCER OF LIPSTICK CITY, MY ROLE ENCAPSULATED SPEARHEADING AND MANAGING PRE-PRODUCTION DETAILS, EXECUTING ON-SITE PRODUCTION TASKS, OVERSEEING CINEMATOGRAPHY AND GUIDING POST-PRODUCTION WRAP-UP.

AS ART DIRECTOR, I CREATED ALL BRANDING AND VISUAL PROMOTION, EDITED THE FILM AND COLOR RETOUCHED FOOTAGE. THE SHORT FILM IS A STORY THAT ESCALATES TO A VENGEFUL CLIMAX, BOTH VISUALLY AND AUDIBLY, TYING IN BOLD POPS OF COLOR WITH COMPELLING GRAPHIC ELEMENTS.
