Hello. I’m Jill Sixx Gevargizian and I’m asking for your help in making my next short film, THE STYLIST! The film is a horror story about a passionate hairstylist named Claire. When Claire’s final client of the evening arrives with the request to look perfect, she is more than happy to oblige...with her signature style.
This is my first time directing a story I wrote, so the film is very personal to me. My goal is to create a meaningful, emotional character piece. This is my opportunity to delve deep into the human psyche and see what happens.
I’ve been a hairstylist for 10 years, so this quite literally is combining everything I love into one story. I employed the help of writer Eric Havens to pen the screenplay. This character is very dear to me and I'm eager to bring her to life!
I am also very happy to be working with production designer Sarah Sharp and director of photography Robert Patrick Stern, who I met while working on PITY by John Pata. Robert and his crew are a well oiled machine and the looks he achieves with his RED cameras are simply stunning.
A lot of people who worked on CALL GIRL are returning, including composer Colin Lacativa and special effects makeup artist Colleen May. The things we have planned are ambitious and gory. I can't wait for you all to see what we have in store.
Check out some of our team's work below.

Risks and challenges
A film is many different talents in one piece of art. It is a challenge in itself to find each talent, and to be able to rely on them. I am incredibly fortunate to have a very serious, experienced, and enthusiastic cast and crew to see this project through to the end. My goal is to enter this film into as many festivals as I can afford, to show the world what I am capable of, and to continue making movies.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
