UV Body Painting on horses for TV-commercial (Case: Veikkaus)
Oh my god, this is going to be so fab! That was my first thought when I was called and asked to join the team for a TV commercial for Veikkaus. I was so excited to hear the stars of the film and my models would be horses! I had never painted horses before, but I was up for the challenge.
We had two long days and altogether we painted 6 different horses. They were all so well behaved and such lovely characters. Some of them couldn’t care less we around, some were more curious and some almost fell asleep under the brush. At the end of the day they got a bit restless, because the trotting scenes of course got their adrenaline rolling. But they were still absolute stars and for us the two days were pure animal therapy!
This was one of the memorable projects I’ve ever worked for and I’m so happy it got a lot of attention in the media too. Here’s an article about the project, I was interviewed and got to share the artist’s view.
