Best Documentary Winner "Thread" by BAFTA Member Director Jane S. Linter features work of David LaChapelle/August Getty @ LJIFFF2016

Best Documentary Winner "Thread" by Director Jane S. Linter screens Live Fashion Installation by David LaChapelle/August Getty @ LJIFFF (The International Fashion Film Festival, La Jolla) 

Directed & Edited by British Director BAFTA Member Jane S. Linter "Thread" wins Best Documentary at the prestigious La Jolla, International Fashion Film Festival held at the San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art , La Jolla CA  HOLLYWOOD, Calif. Aug. 5, 2016
On the side of the street representing Heaven a pink neon "love" logo glows while the choir Renda & The Shine Your Light Choir sings their amazing encore version of "Man in the Mirror" . The models make their final walk around lead by Gigi Gorgeous and Nats Getty walking down the aisle in a mock wedding ceremony arm in arm with Getty as the delighted audience takes pictures and video on their cell phones. "It was such a night to remember, the fashion by August Getty was simply stunning. He is the next big thing and I'm already a huge fan. I only hope I was able to convey the message of the LaChapelle and Getty collaboration - the constant struggle between conflict and resolution through tolerance and love in today's modern world"
The camera takes the viewer down the Western street scene with the recognizable trademarks of LaChapelle's famous style giant logos depicting Heaven & Hell on either side. Behind wire fences and caution tape, TV sets depicting "Hell" piled up on one side play loops of Donald Trump and the Kardashians, plastic mannequins piled on top of one another against graffiti walls add to the chaos. A huge truck parked is driven by a model trailer park style with a cigarette hanging out the side of her mouth! A topless Sharon Gault aka Celebrity Makeup Artist Mama Makeup with star stripper pasties, big white hair and makeup designed by Craig Gangi and Anthony Nguyen to look exactly like the late "Devine" . She giggles as she proudly tells us she's " Bringing Devine back! " and then talks seriously about the new DavidLaChapelle Art Bookpublished by Taschen, coming out this summer, with a secret Celebrity star on the front cover...

"Thread" is a personal behind-the-scenes documentary by Linter of an exclusive Live Fashion Installation Event and Photoshoot at the famous Universal Studios, Hollywood. The event entitled "Thread of Man" was created by August Getty in collaboration with David LaChapelle and features his SS2016 Collection of the same name created by August Getty Atelier. The documentary received 3 nominations including Best Editing (by Linter) and best Music . The LJIFFF is now in it's 7th year and has quickly evolved into the annual global marketplace for the fashion film community. Over 80 movie shorts screening over 3 days are scouted by Hollywood and International Agents and Distributors, and filmmakers fly in from all over the world.


"We received a phone call from Beauty Creative Director Sharon Gault around 6.00 pm for a show that was starting at 7.00 pm!" says Linter. "We were expecting to do interviews on the Red Carpet but we got a big surprise!" With a background as a Choreographer in London, Linter is ready for anything. She has worked with such legends as the late Ken Russell for HBO, E!, Style Network, GMTV, UK, Fashion TV, NYC, London, Paris Fashion Weeks, Video shoots for Vogue, Photoshoots for Flaunt with MAC, an exclusive 20 Years Fashion Anniversary Celebration for Cirque du Soleil for Zink magazine, to Floor Managing for BAFTA's Britannia Awards, honoring George Lucas and HBO. Linter, is a voting UK BAFTA member, and all too familiar with the last minuteness that is LA, "this was nothing unusual for me, every job I get is last minute!


The event kicked- off with 500 VIP guests being dropped at a surprise location for a sit-down VIP dinner, then entering into the most surprising and sexiest futuristic end-of-world dystopia scene imaginable! Arriving on the Western town backlot at Universal Studios, the first thing they see is a happy clapping gospel choir singing the famous Michael Jackson classic " Man in the Mirror" This is a unique fashion show installation event and live photoshoot never before seen. "Thread of Man" is a very personal representation of the powerful women who have inspired the designer throughout his life to present day. Using the skin tones of five iconic women as a foundation, and fine Italian leathers, silks and gold lace body-hugging designs, with cut-outs revealing one or both bare breasts the results are incredibly rich. The key makeup is provided by Edwin Sandoval and the hair by Larry Dean McDaniel. In the background we see a huge original Getty Oil logo which gives a reminder of the designer's background. Next to that a large shrine of candles and flowers surrounding an image of the Virgin of Guadalupe. Even Gettys sister Nats (currently in a relationship with Gigi Gorgeous) is seen as one of the models in the store front with her hand pressed against the windows revealing a tattoo that says 'Lady Getty". The young oil scion at the age of 21 has already made a big celebrity splash when Rachel McAdams wore one of his backless, head-turning numbers to the Oscars 2016 . But for this event there was no sign of a red carpet anywhere. Getty selected unusual male and female models who represent society differences as well as sexuality, and transgender, such as amputee model Lauren Walter , and transgender world famous icons Carmen Carrera and You Tube star Gigi Gorgeous. Other special appearances include Celebrity Makeup Artist Sharon Gault; a long time muse for David LaChapelle she has worked with legends Madonna, Lady Gaga, Myley Cyrus, Britney Spears and the list goes on.

With help from a guardian angel, Archangel Gabriel played by (Dean Cain) a spoiled rich, materialistic teenage girl learns that true value can only be found in assisting others. 

Angelina Bennett Foxworth played by Donna Spangler is the glamorous Fashion Designer ex-wife of James Bennett Foxworth played by Veteran actor Vincent De Paul from John Waters' Hairspray (1988)  a 2015 Emmy winning Producer and Actor, (“The Bay” the series) and former International Versace model.Together they have a spoiled fashion-obsessed 14 year old teenage daughter Ravin played by (Ravin Spangler) who spends her life in the mirror making sure she is, just like every teen, up-to-the minute fashion-wise….. that is until Ravin meets Jerry played by Brandon Tyler Russel (Martial Arts Kid & Smitty) and love blossoms…but a sudden twist of fate means that Ravin will soon have no option but to adjust her way of thinking.

Vincent De Paul & Kirsten Lea - Beverly Hills Christmas *Dress by Hardy Amies

 A Beverly Hills Christmas is a beautiful inspirational film about  hope, love, Burger King and fashion! Directed by Brian Skiba, Produced by Donna Spangler and lensed by Christian Filippella the film was shot on location in Beverly Hills, CA.With a happy traditional message of positivity the film’s theme is a cross between "Scrooge" and "Its a Wonderful Life."  Dean Cain (Lois & Clark) Kirsten Lea(Walk a Mile in My Pradas) John Savage(HAIR) and Ravin’s little doggy Bunny  create havoc but like Romeo and Juliette, when two star-crossed lovers meet, a magical message prevails. Vincent De Paul plays the husband and father, co-starring alongside Arc Angel Gabriel, played by Dean Cain and screen daughter Ravin.


FASHION TID BIT "What would Clueless look like if it were made in 2015?" – here’s your answer!Mona May is the iconic Costume Designer behind the wardrobe style of Beverly Hills Christmas.  May is famous for designing outfits for the movie Enchanted (2007) starring Amy Adams and Patrick Dempsey and best well known for her iconic work on Clueless (1995) with Alicia Silverstone and 25 years later it’s so great to see her 2015 interpretation with Raven Spangler  and friends.  Many teens found  style inspiration and editorialized their look based on the fashion of Costume Designer Mona May for Clueless.  This year those long awaited retro looks will be featured again in a fun and  heartfelt teen romp - so expect to see lots of plaids and pearls!  In fact, there’s a strong theme of Fashion throughout the movie, (Angelina is a Fashion Designer) and there’s even a cameo appearance by  “Next Top Model” and former employer of Tyra Banks world renowned fashion designer Sue Wong who’s 2016 collection also appears in the feature . 

Ravin Spangler
This is THE Christmas Movie that just simply had to be made! Says Donna Spangler, the film’s Producer.  A Beverly Hills Christmas evolved as a small indie film with an enthusiastic cast and crew which grew in stature almost magically. At first, "We did not know if we were going to be able to pull it off - we had so many hurdles to overcome" she said  "But we also had so much support from the Hollywood Presbyterian Church who's members and clergy put up with our hectic filming schedule. They run an actual soup kitchen there.  "As if by magic when we put the word out, many groups of individuals rallied around the project and friends and family contributed time , money and resources. This turned it into a true “Family and Friends” movie with Dean Cain's son who was in the film as well as several members of the Spangler clan and veteran director Brian Skiba's  family all working together.  The movie sets out to show true heartfelt feelings rather than  some of the more commercial films which show violence and deprecation of mankind.  Everyone had faith in the little film and the actors outperformed themselves. First time actress Ravin Spangler Donna’s daughter who plays Ravin had people on set crying from her stellar performance – and a Star is born! " The overall message delivered by the movie is profound showing the audience what is really important in life" says Spangler  “ It seems that there was a force greater than ours wanting the film to be made and in the end ….a faith-based channel picked it up just in time for Christmas!

David LaChapelle Interactive Art installation features August Getty S/S 2016 Collection "Thread of Man" @ Universal Studios Back lot, Universal Studios, Hollywood



Los Angeles-based designer (and 21 year old grandson of oil magnate J. Paul Getty) ) August Getty's Spring 2016 "Thread of Man" show,  was simply billed vaguely as a "unique, visceral experience" and no other details were provided..... other than those followed by a random last minute phone call from long time friend and colleague, Celebrity Makeup Artist, Sharon Gault. An invitation to go behind the scenes with a photographer and video crew to cover the hair and makeup. We waited, baited breath for clearance and just about 2 hours before the show was scheduled to begin at 7.00 pm, I set off.  Meeting up immediately with a peak rush hour nightmare traffic to get into Universal Studios. I sat in a non-moving traffic bottleneck panicking I was going to miss it all.  Not wanting to miss a beat of this, and with sheer determination, I told my crews stuck in traffic to meet me there somehow. After several go around attempts, I found the designated, "word of mouth" pick up point..but only by recognizing a few fellow fashionistas and jovial fun ladies (from the Pentacostal choir) , who looked like David LaChapelle "characters".... . I was now separated from my camera crew but I didn't care. I just wanted to get there!
No disappointment. I entered into another world. The surrealist and ethereal magical world of LaChapelle  ...the back drop lot ..a Wild West town transformed into an interactive "Heaven & Hell" themed art exhibition.   A night of creative imagination, fashion and style, by legendary photographer and mastermind photographer himself, David LaChapelle featuring the fashion of August Getty.

HEAVEN SIDE: Getty presented an interesting collection  of  futuristic, minamilistic, silhouettes in neutral 5 shades of foundation, inspired by Celebrity Leading ladies for his "Thread of Man" collection. Models including the designer's own sister, Natalia Getty sported mushroom bobs behind saloon windows in breast showing latex dresses, sheath gowns, and umbrella-bottom dresses. The scene was a wedding preparation maybe a little "Kill Billish"..... in the Wild West setting


HELL SIDE :  a scene from behind a chain-link fence, called  "hell" , and cordoned off with Police yellow tape housed  dozens of different junk television screens rolling clips of reality TV queen Kim Kardashian and presidential hopeful Donald Trump played, among current war CNN news stories. 



LaChapelle had transformed the scene into a dystopian, multimedia, strange apocalyptic wasteland complete with 1940s parlour music played in the background as clips of Donald Trump speeches from Fox, and terrorist explosions whirred together in a stack of junk TV's and models showcased themselves in zombie-like floating store dummies.  There were the words from LaChapelles famous Coffee Table Book  "Heaven" and "Hell" in neon light. The event showcased the young designer's Spring/Summer 2016 collection, and depicted women in a way that had us conflicted with bare breasts clearly showing,  and ending with a Pentecostal choir hand-chosen by LaChapelle . As we all  sang along clapping to their version of  "Oh Happy Day" -  we felt the LOVE!~ LaChapelle style!





As VIP guests wined and dined in a tent just up a hill we all watched in awe as David brought it all together. Then, it was back on the shuttle bus and off to the private afterparty which was packed at the Blind Dragon on Sunset.   A really memorable night and collection by August Getty. The Celebrity VIP guest list only  predictably included a host of stars such as actresses Jamie King and Jessica Szhor, model Jessica Stam, socialites It girl/artist/model Langley Fox, stylish twins Sama and Haya Kahdra, and celebrity spawns (Hayley Hasselhoff). and the grand finale featured a live choir for its grand finale


Celebrity Makeup Artist Sharon Gault was "Devine" for the night with hair styled by Craig Ghanji using Enjoy Hair Products and Devine and Gigi's makeup by Anthony Nguyen from OPUS Beauty using Makeup Forever.



The Models showcased the collection as showroom mannequins,  with faceless expressions and far away looks which created an eerie vibe. They were inside faux store fronts for the Western town, and encouraged the audience to be voyeurs.
