Small Town Glory

Many years ago I was the Hair & Makeup Designer on a short Film called Small Town Glory Starring Therese Bradley, Jack Roth and Dermot Keaney and directed by Mary Nighy.

TRAILER:

 

However now there is an exciting news because for a limited period of time US Vogue is hosting Small Town Glory on their website in conjunction with a fashion film Mary Nighy has made for them.  NFTS have agreed to show the full film on the site for a limited period and I think it’s great that more people will get to see it.

So if you would like to see the full film, here’s the link :

Feel free to share it with anyone you’d like to see the film, too. Enjoy!
