Mentoring Initiative


One of the many ways WIFVNE works to “Change the Lens” is to offer mentoring and shadowing opportunities. 

We believe mentoring matters

I was working with Erin, the set stylist, to create a home-like set with a holiday vibe. It was really interesting to shadow the stylist, as she went to school for this specific role.  

In the photos I’m removing what was already on the mantle at our location. They had rented out what seemed like a yoga/zen studio space with huge windows everywhere and great lighting. I wrapped empty boxes to make them look like holiday gifts. Everything that was seen in the final cut of the commercial was very carefully chosen and placed for the shot. Everything had to be wiped clean of fingerprints, which I wouldn’t haven’t even thought to do prior to this experience. Overall it was a great shadowing opportunity, and in this super difficult time, it totally reminded me of why I want to work in the film/media industry.

My background is in art department, specifically set/production design, and costume/prop design. I have a passion for alternative fashion, specifically Japanese street wear! I am open to work on set: I prefer art/costume department, but appreciate any offers to learn more.
