Backstage : Picture Perfect

Picture Perfect 18

I promised I’d keep you updated on new projects I’ve been involved in, so here you go. Currently I’m in the process of filming Picture Perfect  (that I’ve mentioned here) , an independent short by SWJC productions.

I get to play an ambitious model with twisted values who’s willing to do whatever it takes to reach her goals, even if it means hurting a few hearts along the way, including her own

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Work has been calling and I have to say, I’m so not a juggler! Instagram has been my outlet for the latest happenings in my career, so if you miss seeing weekly posts here, make sure to get o daily dose of Flavia on there.

So, what are these pictures all about? I’ve been working on a few projects these past few weeks, one of them being a short film called Picture Perfect. These are from a photo shoot session for the film.

I got lucky enough to work once again with a friend photographer, Francisco Rojas. I honestly don’t know what’s like to be photographed by someone  I don’t know anymore and I’m sure the outcome has everything to do with that.

More photos from the filming day will come soon followed by more details about the film (as much as I’m allowed to share).

ps: Did you notice my extra-long lashes? For a photo shoot it definitely gave that dramatic effect we were looking for, but would you wear something that drastic for say,  a girls night out?

I’ve been photographed by my husband for so long now that working with another photographer definitely threw me for a loop. Everything changes and it definitely reflects on the outcome. In a good way.  (My husband’s photos are great, really, but it’s nice to change things up once in a while)  These photos were part of a photo shoot for Francisco Rojas, a quite talented gentleman. I’ll be posting them here in a series of three, maybe four and as always, you’re welcome to let me know your thoughts!

Short Film

A few weeks back I had the pleasure to work on a project for director CJ Richter. “Some Punishment” was my first short film and an incredible experience.

From watching the “making of” of movies, you always hear actors complain about “waiting around” until the crew is done with the lighting or other technical adjustments. They are not kidding!

While there’s a bunch of people walking around, moving sets, watching your every move, it’s important to remember you are playing a character and try to ignore the noise. Sometimes you’ll be asked to walk in a room with 2o people staring at you and pretend to be alone! It’s easier said than done.

But overall, I think I got pretty lucky to work with such talented and hard-working people.  I owe a special thanks to CJ and the producer Lauren Schmandt for being so freakishly amazing.

Small Screen Debut

Enough mystery! A couple of months ago I decided to give my acting career a real go. I know, I’ve never actually mentioned anything about being an actress because I tend not to talk about things I’m not actually actively pursuing. Don’t wanna be that person who talks much but does little.


Instead I remained quiet and promised myself I’d bring it up when/if something worth mentioning happened. Turns out that after two weeks of trying I was cast in the Fox series The Mob Doctor.



The story of a female doctor who works part-time for the mob boss (William Forsythe),  takes place in my home city of Chicago and airs at 8 pm on Mondays. The episode above is called Complications and you can catch it on Fox’s website.


Acting and music have been passions of mine since I was a little girl. At 16 I moved to a bigger city so I could get some training by attending a good improv acting school. With my move to the US I had to delay my plans of pursuing a career in showbiz. For the past year I’ve been sitting in acting classrooms trying to get back to my game, and most recently I’ve been throwing myself at opportunities like this.

There are some exciting things happening which I’ll keep you posted about. But for right now I’m just happy and blessed to be doing what I truly love.


For every video my husband and I put together there are always those we have to cut out because something didn’t go right. And now you know what I’m gonna say next: bloopers! Instead of letting it all go to waste  I thought you might enjoy this
