The shoot with Cynthia Rothrock was really dynamic.It was a pleasure to work with such a professional, who on top of it all was also a very humble and lovely lady.
After meeting her at the martial arts show, she emailed me to say that she would like to appear in the film but was leaving in two days. I got my skates on and hurriedly got her flights changed. I also managed to get sponsorship from my local health club Esporta for the use of their studio to film her action moves in and from The Marriott Hotel, Swiss Cottage who let us film her interview in their private lounge.
Renowned Joseph Koniak, whose Grandmother founded Brown’s, the Designer store chain, has a salon at Esporta and is an avid martial artist. He kindly offered sponsorship to style Cynthia’s hair for the shoot and also agreed to take part in Spirit2Power.
Premier Inn at Hampstead offered us sponsorship for Cynthia’s one night stay with breakfast and a lovely reception with flowers and lunch for her..so we enjoyed a leisurely meal after the shoot to catch up and get to know each other a bit. I then dropped her back at the airport the next day….feeling like I had been in the presence of a truly classy World Artist.
