When I first learned I’d get to be a zombie in Goodnight My Love my first reaction was: YES! Second reaction following immediately after, I rushed to the remote control to watch an episode oh Walking Dead and start making zombie noises. You know, to perfect my growling skills. I knew I’d have to rely on the makeup department for a lot of the characterization and they were nothing short of amazing. Catherine Woods is a hell of a makeup artist. Everything looked so real (and disgusting) I had a hard time looking directly in the mirror and at other zombies after the transformation.
Who would have thought I could go from bride to zombie in one day? Not long ago I didn’t even watch Walking Dead and soon after becoming addicted to the show I was cast in a zombie flick. So can you imagine my excitement in being part of this? I think you can give it a shot but no amount of guessing will describe my enthusiasm. “Goodnight My Love” was shot in two days. Flashbacks, dream sequences and zombie chases. Pretty cool, huh?
But underneath it all lays a story about human relationships. A homosexual couple lost everything they know in a zombie apocalypse. No matter the circumstances, “people need human contact” as once said Tennessee Williams through one of his characters dialogues and that’s what keep people fighting for survivalI’m extremely proud of this project for many many reasons, a few of them being my talented director and screenwriter Kellee Terrell (thank you so much for giving me the gift to play Aimee) Kristin Anderson for being such an amazing actor and challenging me to raise my bar, Elizabeth Brouillette and Conor O’Farrell for producing a kick ass short.
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?
As I mentioned in the last post, my husband and I put together a little silent film that tells the story of two parents-to-be who went through a lot but persevered and now are getting ready to welcome a baby boy this coming may.We’re so happy to share their special moment with you.
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.
