Meet a Nominee: Jessica Panetta
We love MakeUp Artists Jessica Panetta
I am thrilled that Jessica Panetta has been nominated for an Indie Soap Award for her makeup work on Ruby Skye P.I.: The Haunted Library. Not only is Jessica incredibly talented, she is also one of the most awesome people on the planet.
The role hair and makeup artists play on a set is often underestimated. Keeping the cast looking great is vital, but few people realize how the hair and makeup department can keep the cast feeling great too. No one does that better than Jessica. She is a lot of fun to be around, always in a good mood and always positive.
She did a wonderful job working with the cast keeping everyone chipper and on their toes through long night shoots. Even when things got tense, which they can do around 4 in the morning, Jessica was always gracious. She is an incredible role model and she is someone I’d love to have with me on any set I’m lucky enough to be on.
We shot a bunch of behind the scenes videos that feature Jessica. This one shows her making up Madison Cheeatow for the party scene in Episode 9.
Watch, learn and keep your fingers crossed that Jessica Panetta comes up as a big winner on February 19, 2013 at the Indie Soap Awards!
