EXCLUSIVE EVIL CLOWN PHOTO SHOOT
Deciding to pursue a career in acting, Dani Thompson attended The International School Of Screen Acting obtaining a Post Grad Diploma in Screen Acting in 2010. She has appeared in several feature films including as a scream queen in British indie horror films. During 2012, Thompson completed writing her first screenplay, originally titled "Call Me" drawing partly on her experience as a model. Now renamed "Serial Kaller," the film was shot in 2013 and eventually released by Wild Eye Releasing in 2014. In 2013, Dani Thompson also starred in "Axe to Grind," "Cute Little Buggers" and "Rockband vs Vampires." At the beginning of 2014, "Christmas Slay" was filmed in Bulgaria.
Away from acting, Dani has been written a regular column called "Dani's Deadly Diary" in Haunted Digital magazine since August 2011 and also has her own blog page on the magazine's official website. Drawing on the BND in fashion and textiles she gained at college, Dani started her own business in 2013 designing and making knitted clothing for small dogs. In 2009, Dani Thompson changed her middle name to "Barbie" by deed poll after having been inspired by "Barbie Dolls" for years. Dani currently follows a pescatarian diet.
Quote from photographer Oran Tarjan...
"The whole idea came about quite spontaneously actually cos we were originally just planning on doing some promo shots for the indigogo campaign of her soon to be in production werewolf film 'Bad Moon Rising.' We were going to shoot it just before the time of Halloween and I said to her how about we do a Halloween themed shoot as well after the promo shots. I had an idea about doing a kind of King Diamond/Black Metal inspired make-up in a sexy black leather type of outfit and Dani had a cool idea about an evil clown look she wanted to do and had this amazing corset so we just kind of put our influences together and came up with a really cool and inspired look/shoot.
I had the idea to buy a load of Halloween themed sweets and candy that I wanted Dani to use and eat and play with throughout the shoot in whatever way she could but also in a kind of ironic way. First we did some moody contrast shots where she was looking more evil and sinister and then we got to the fun part where I was just giving her a bunch of different sweets and telling her to do different things with them. It was a really fun shoot, we were shooting quite late because it was after the promo shots for the movie, but I could’ve gone on shooting through to the early hours since we were having a total blast. Dani also did her own make-up for the clown look. She is definitely one very multi-talented woman! I think the fact that it was quite spontaneous and a bit spur of the moment made it a lot more fun and interesting and it really comes across in all the pictures."
