Edited this feature film trailer with the fantastic Kylee Pena in both Premiere Pro/AE. Rampant Designs FX.
Hair flies in the life of teenage Olivia, who is totally bald due to the medical condition alopecia. Olivia works at the hair salon that is owned by her ex-beauty queen mom, after school and on Saturdays. Olivia’s challenge is not her hair loss, but the relationship with her mother. Flora wants Olivia to wear wigs and compete in pageants, as she did. But Olivia has other plans. She wants to skateboard and attract the attention of Chad, the assistant manager of Skaterz Skateboard Shop. Olivia has no hair, but is surrounded by situations involving hair and beauty. The film will create awareness for alopecia as well as address teen bullying, self acceptance, diversity, how beauty is viewed, the mother/ daughter relationship and other teen issues.
