In this post, we're documenting Part I of how me make a mold of his head (only to completely destroy it later!!).

Brianna Shaughnessy (Willie) is originally from Tampa, Florida. Back home where its warm, she did everything from Community Theatre to T.V. Productions. Yet realistically she knew she would have to let go of her palm trees and replace them with taxis in order to pursue her career. So Brianna moved to the Big Apple over three years ago to attend The School for Film and Television, a two year acting conservatory located in the heart of Chelsea. Since graduation Brianna has appeared on the History Channel Series, "Breaking Vegas." She also got killed off by a lap top computer in an Independent horror film, "Red Midnight," set for release this month. In her spare time she enjoys writing, kickboxing, and of course the movies.
I was born in 1981 in South Yorkshire, England. I have always had a great passion for films and a keen interest in film music, although I never thought I would get involved with the film industry through music. It wasnÃ¯Â¿Â½t until I saw the film Gladiator and heard Hans Zimmer inspirational score, that I found my calling.
I have always loved to put music to images and thrived on enhancing a scene with music.
After finishing a BTEC in music I went on to complete a BA in Creative music Technology Majoring in composition. IÃ¯Â¿Â½m currently saving to do a Masters in Film and Television Music, which hopefully will start next summer. At the moment after the success of www.cphproductions.co.uk which has only been up and running for a few months IÃ¯Â¿Â½m concentrating on future projects.
