Behind the scenes with actor Eddie Jemison

Working on the set of Bob Funk, I had the great pleasure to meet and work with Eddie Jemison. If you don't recognize the name right off the bat, he has been in movies such as Oceans 11, 12 and 13, and he was in The Waitress with Keri Russel. He is also on the huge HBO hit "Hung." Working with Eddie was a blast. He was always in a good mood, always smiling, and so down to earth it made being on set really fun. Eddie's wife and baby came by the set one day and they were adorable beyond words. Lead artist Jon Granados used many top make-up brands like Christian Dior, Chanel, and lots and lots Make up Forever products--which were his favorite. For some of the actors like Eddie Jemison, Grace Zibriskie, Rachel Leigh Cook, and Stephen Root, products from my own make up line Tina G Cosmetics were also used.

Bob Funk the movie

Hired by Unified pictures to help do make up for the indie film Bob Funk, I had a blast working in the trailer and up on set. It was a sincere joy to work with talents such as Michael Leydon Campbell, Grace Zibriskie (License to Wed), Eddie Jemison (Oceans 11 franchise), Rachel Leigh Cook (She's All That), Stephen Root (Office Space), and other talents.

Here is a behind the scenes shot of me working with lead actor Michael Leydon Campbell:

Here is one from the day Stephen Root joined us on set for his super funny scenes. He was so hilarious it was hard to stay quiet while they filmed. Each time the shot was over, everyone on set burst out in laughter. He had a huge following because of his character Milton on Office Space. He was so nice and I loved meeting him!!

Bob Funk was written and directed by the fabulous Craig Carlisle. Sonya Rokes was the on set photographer and all photos below are property of Unified Pictures and were shot by Sonya Rokes.
