Here's a brand spanking new video taking you behind-the-scenes on the making of Arctic Spy Nazanin's shoot. Model Nazanin Mandi slipped into the espionage-themed shoot with remarkable ease, making us all wonder if this whole modeling thing is just a cover. This shoot day was a particularly large production, as we photographed several of the SlickforceGirls in one day. My thanks to the amazing team that helped us pull it off!

In early December, the SlickforceGirl team reached out to several battalions of deployed U.S. troops overseas to find out what items they needed in the field. Our team put together more than a dozen care packages and shipped them out just before Christmas. Over the last few weeks, we've begun to receive confirmations of package arrivals in various destinations—many of them delivered by helicopter to the most remote of locations—including this photo from an undisclosed Air Force base in Afghanistan. It shows Airman Amico and two of his fellow airmen, cheered on by SlickforceGirl Erika. Our heartfelt thanks goes out to the men and women who risk their lives everyday for others. Your bravery in the most dangerous situations continues to inspire us, and it is a sobering reminder of just how many freedoms we take for granted as civilians. Be safe, and we wish you a speedy journey home.
Alright guys, this might be my favorite SlickforceGirl video yet. You've seen the beautiful Vanessa Veasley in harness training, and she's walked you through her spaceship set. Now, go backstage with SlickforceGirl Stunt Coordinator Alex Wen as we put it all together and make Vanessa fly. So proud of Vanessa for being a consummate professional and a tough-as-nails trooper on this intense shoot—I can't even imagine how uncomfortable it is hanging from a string, but she makes it look easy. This is probably the most fun I've ever had on set. My thanks to Alex Wen, the entire SlickforceStudio team, glam squad Gaby Ramos Torell, Al Ingram and Diana Chan, and everyone who made this shoot possible. Up, up and away!

Here's the first in-depth look at the making of the very first SlickforceGirl shoot. I'm not going to say much here because the video speaks for itself. The scale of this shoot was larger than even I had anticipated, but it was also ultimately the most exciting single production day of my career. What a blast to be able to see so much of what's inside your head manifest before your eyes into a reality. My thanks to the amazing team of artists and assistants who helped us pull off this stellar shoot. Lots more to come from our space-traveling hero. Enjoy!
Here's a cool behind-the-scenes video of my friend, stunt coordinator Alex Wen, rigging Vanessa Veasley up on a wire harness and training her to mimic zero-gravity movement for our SlickforceGirl shoot. Special thanks to our friends at KCW Studios for providing the rig and making our star fly!
