Meet elected WMFVA Board Trustee Dawn Butler

I am a trained makeup artist with over 13 years experience creating any look from straight makeup to special FX for print, stage, film, video, and TV media. Ive traveled across Michigan and the Midwest and I know the demands of filmmakers and commercial productions large and small. Ive also seen how important it is to know the people who are in the business, to network, and to keep expanding my list of contacts hey, Ive even had face-time with President Obama! Everyone I meet in this business is a potential employer. Im a big fan of building community. I served for a number of years as member of the board for the MCA-I Mid-Michigan chapter planning events and mini-suppers for our members. Ive brought that experience to the WMFVA since I was appointed to the board in 2010. Id like to serve a full term to continue building our membership and expanding our community. As our industry grows we need to know each other. Id like a chance to work on that.
