Working on a Commercial Shoot

Sorry for not writing in forever. I have been concentrating on my Doll Blog. I will try to pop in here more often!

I had a very special experience recently, and I have been super busy and quite exhausted so haven’t gotten around to writing about it until now.

I was asked to work as a ‘doll stylist’ on a commercial shoot for American Girl and Wellie Wishers dolls. I had to stay on set for almost 14 hours each day, making sure that the dolls that were featured in the commercial looked beautiful.


I had to ensure that their hair and clothes were looking wonderful for the camera. It was a very cool experience! The commercials will probably not be on the air until 2017. I will let you know if I get any more information on where to watch the commercials when they are released!


After speaking with some other people on set, I found out I could work on Barbie, Monster High, Cabbage Patch, and other commercials that require doll styling. I really think that would be a great job! Have you ever worked on a commercial set? What did you enjoy most about it?

Attempting to move creative and truly sincere and convincing movies past the established order in Myanmar is a problem for a lot of the filmmakers living there. For decades past, many types of open demonstrations had been closely controlled and the dramatic arts did not have immunity…”

Some very interesting research led me to write this article regarding heroin and opium addiction in Afghanistan. Please take a look!

“The world recently had their eyes opened by a short film called “Addicted in Afghanistan”, which profiles a family that is addicted to heroin and opium. Many people know that Afghanistan is the largest producer of opium in the world, but not everyone realized that the people of the country itself are facing an epidemic of addiction…”

Continuing with this theme…

I am continuing on with my theme, featuring Afghanistan culture. This time I write about films in Afghanistan making their way into the Western world. I hope you will take a look!

“An Afghani movie has suddenly been put forward for nomination in the ‘Boston International Film Festival’ usually held in the month of April. This particular film festival shows many independent movies which focus primarily on promoting multiculturalism. This unique movie took about a year to shoot, and was directed by a man named Sadiq Abedi…”
