Shashana Kaplan has a lifetime of professional experience. She's spent the better part of 25 years helping filmmakers bring their creative visions to life: on time, on budget and with exceptional creativity.
Whatever the genre, your production deserves the best. Call Shash today.
Making somebody look beautiful is child's play; making somebody look tired, dirty, futuristic or of a period is where the real experience and artistry presents itself.
Shash finds inspiration in historic looks, futuristic themes, and revels in the details. Any time she can put dirt under a character's nails to bring their situation to vibrant life, that's when she's happiest.
Unfortunately for our beloved characters on screen, sometimes bad things happen to nice people. Never one to be squeamish, Shash loves to bring the pain...figuratively, of course.
Having worked with some of the biggest names in horror, both on the directing side, and on the makeup side, you can be sure your most ghoulish visions will be vividly realized.
Things aren't always dire for our on-screen friends; sometimes a degree of wacky levity is in order. At these moments, Shash's own sense of humor comes to the rescue. When your character is a narcissistic, sun-drenched actor from cinema's golden age, what could possibly visualize this better than a comedic "sunglasses sunburned onto his face" gag?
Director LOVED it.
When you're trying to make people laugh, it's a harder job than most people realize. But you'll have a creative partner with Shash. She ready, willing, and most importantly, ABLE to bring a smile.
Seriously, what are you waiting for? Call Shashana today. The sooner she's on your team, the sooner you can relax and start focusing on other things.
