BRING SOMETHING SEXY: A Freelance Modeling Documentary
Follow Kristy, a rebellious 5'2 freelance art and glamour nude model, through her daring and risqué adventures!
Awarded "Best Documentary Feature" at the Seattle Transmedia Independent Film festival in 2017.
Despite the oppressive standards of mainstream commercial modeling, and shock-factor news headlines of rogue model endangerment's, Kristy forges her own path by finding photographers on different social media platforms. Cameras go behind the scenes to see her in action modeling for photographers: some creative, some seedy, and some...questionable?
Concern from her parents and a raised brow of the public cause Kristy to struggle, but do not ultimately hold her back from her dream to move to Southern California and try to make a name for herself. Can freelance models make a living? Or will they be mocked by society? This documentary explores dynamics in new age media that may challenge the myths of the old school elitist definition of a "model".
"I had fears when I started freelancing in 2012, being 5’2 with a tramp stamp and stretch marks made me doubt my ability to succeed in modeling. Despite my insecurities, I’ve become more successful and more fulfilled in my career as each year passes. You can succeed at your dreams too!"GET THE DOCUMENTARY
"As soon as I turned 18, I began modeling nude. There was a part of me that I was shamed from expressing my femininity, as a female who was raised in a religious cult. Sin and lust and vanity were all hellbound attributes of a woman, but for some reason I was drawn to expressing myself for the camera. Over the course of many years of transcending into a more confident, empowered human through posing for various photographers, I started to feel a sense of security in the creative community."GET THE DOCUMENTARY
"As my career bloomed, it was challenging to describe how the freelance modeling industry works to friends and family who were 'concerned for my well being'. The outdated culture of agencies, America's Next Top Model, runways, and TV shows were what most uninformed people believed modeling had to be."WATCH NOW
"How do freelance models make sure we are safe? Why do photographers hire us? Where do we find our paid work? What makes freelance modeling different than agency represented modeling? I wanted to make sure the film went deep into all of these topics. I also wanted to document the experience of my exposing confession to my parents about career."GET THE DOCUMENTARY
