“It was summertime. We were making a brand film for a Fortune 100 company in New York City. I was out location scouting, and stopped to get lunch and check messages. I had a doozie: the veteran makeup artist I'd worked with on some big projects told me she'd suffered a breakdown and was quitting the business. Effective now. This business can be tough, I get that. I began to search for a new HMUA. I wanted more than someone who'd show up and do the gig at hand. There's lots of people who can do the job. I wanted someone who was very skilled and talented who also cared. Someone who'd see something that needed doing and do it without complaining or even expecting a thank you (I know I've missed giving a few well-earned "thank you's" on busy shoots). Someone I could trust to keep her department under control while dealing with high-powered "C-Suite Level" clients who might be a little unaccustomed to being filmed. And yet, someone who also brings the level of performance and artistry you'd expect from a HMUA on a feature film. I have high standards. I found Breeanna Nichols. Breeanna is young, but she's an old soul. She's the complete package and everything I want and need in a top-flight HMUA. I've learned to trust her completely, and she's never let me down. If I could clone her, I would.”
“We’ve had the pleasure of working with Breeanna on a handful of projects. The majority of our work is in the commercial and corporate space, and we’ve hired her as an MUA to prep high-level corporate executives for camera. Her work is precise and clean, adds quality to our images - but her overall demeanor and presence on our sets is particularly noteworthy. She’s extremely calm under pressure, which as an MUA on a corporate shoot is important as you typically go from 0 - 60 having to make talent look their best with a limited amount of time in the chair. She’s also very selfless and conscientious - recognizing one executive she was working with in particular was in a rush - and she proactively suggested doing his make-up on-set to tighten up the process. On a big shoot or small, it’s this kind of proactivity and thoughtfulness that producers and directors value - someone thinking for themselves and meeting an unforeseen need to make the whole production run smoother.”
