SACRED LIES TV SERIES  

Kristie mentored me through every single scene and helped me through the physiological aspects of loosing a limb and the physical elements so that it would be authentic. She was absolutely invaluable to entire production.

Physical Abilities Coaching

 

During the process of creating Minnow Bly's character we had to discover and create every little movement she attempts and create a progression to how she growths within the character as-well.  One of our biggest challenges was researching and working with different ways Minnow would attempt to use utensils.

Mentality Coaching 

Mindset is everything in creating such abstract characters. This was the most important part of creating Minnow By. Within the pre-productions phases we focused our training on we getting into the pysological part of overcoming and experiencing trauma. Discussing the vulnerabilities, challenges, emotions, pain and suffering that Minnow goes through helping the actor connect deeper within her complex character.

On-Set Coaching 

Working alongside the visual-effects team we worked together to make sure the prosthetics and effects involved in each shot were captured in the most honest way. Using prosthetics can effect the length and portrayal of stumps witch made it very important to watch each camera and motion closely to keep it actuate and honest. On-Set Coaching also involves working with the Make Up FX Team to make sure the fit and function of each prosthetic is working for the actress in each scene.
