My son, Scott August, of whom I am very proud, is a movie director. Actually, you can see his name on the big screen as Assistant Director of the film, “The Spy Next Door.”
During the filming of the movie, I had the pleasure of being on set. One day my son came out of the makeup trailer, walked over to me and said, “Mom, Judith August Cosmetics are all over the makeup room. Is that what you do for a living?!”
Imagine, people all over the world use my products and are familiar with my twenty year journey in developing corrective and concealing cosmetics, but my own adult son had just connected the dots. Oh, well. I was somewhere between amazed, proud, and just plain amused!
Anyway, he escorted me to the makeup trailer, and I tell you, I felt like a star for all the attention I received. I was honored to be able to give these phenomenal makeup artists more tips on how to apply my products. I love following the adventures of the traveling Everything Pencil™, you’ll never know where it will show up. Another perk for me when I was on set…I had a karate lesson!
Just a cute story I wanted to share with you, plus I got to boast about my son’s success. By the way, my husband and I saw “The Spy Next Door” the other night…entertaining movie, but the best part was standing up and cheering when my son’s name appeared on the screen. (Needless to say, my husband hid under the seat!)
