Makeup for "No Sleep for Ronni"

Our short narrative film, No Sleep for Ronni, was shot this past spring and summer in Madison. It stars Veronica Narang as a sleepwalker in denial. Here's a behind-the-scenes look at her makeup for one of the sequences. The video was shot and edited by Ivy Suryana...

We are currently working on the finishing edits of two other films, and so we don't expect to see the completion of No Sleep for Ronni until late 2015.
