The Everests – “Rowena” wins Best Production Design

The music video for the song “Rowena” won the award for Best Production Design at the 35th annual Scottsdale Community College Film Festival.  I had a very small role in this project as a special effects makeup artist. I painted the gold on the dancer’s hands and feet, but the real kudos go to the fantastic team of LOCAL talent that made a world class music video. I am really impressed with this and I hope you will take a moment to listen to this song and take in the beautiful imagery. Thank you to Ryan Johnston and Desiree Srinivas for letting me be a contributor to this work.

A music video for an original song by The Everests, produced by Art of War Pictures, LLC. Featuring Kayla Nelson as The Dancer.
