Each year the Kim Dawson modeling agency picks a select group of aspiring models to compete in the agency’s model search. Top area creatives are asked to produce a film for each candidate showcasing the candidate’s talents.
This year, charlieuniformtango graphic designer Tramaine Townsend was chosen to direct a film introducing Luis Enrique. Current Kim Dawson model Kiersten Dolbec costarred.
The seven films were showcased at the Angelika Theater on Wednesday, November 4, 2015. At the end of the showing, the overall winner of the search was announced. All showcased models are given contracts with the prestigious Kim Dawson Agency.
Townsend titled his film “YUH” - about which he says, “Working on the film was amazing. The concept was one I’ve been thinking about for a long time. To go inside the mind of a guy who can’t stop thinking about a girl he’s crazy about. I wanted it to be very design heavy, and vast in space. In the mind, anything is possible, so I wanted the film to feel psychedelic and abstract.
“I was able to work with a very extensive and talented team that gave their free time to the production. Special thanks to Creative Director and Stylist of the film, Ariella Villa. Everything was shot on green screen. I was excited to work with an artist who does 3D printing, Max Sven Broden. He was able to scan the female model, Kiersten Dolbec, to create the 3D part of the film. It was a very impressive process. Our efx tango team including Nicole Brieger, Andrea Norby, Nick Patronella, Artie Pena, Allen Robbins, Joey Waldrip, and Chris Walker all were brilliant.”
charlieuniformtango Principal/President Lola Lott, said, “We were excited Tramaine was selected for this project. It fits our mission of supporting our community’s businesses and the talent in our industry. The Kim Dawson Agency is a cornerstone of our industry here in Dallas, and one we’re proud to partner with.”
Tramaine Townsend made D Magazine’s annual list of “The 10 Most Stylish in Dallas,” earlier this year. The article appeared in the March 2015 issue.
