Melanie Iglesias is back, and this time we are raising money for Hope for the Warriors. Watch as Melanie tries to keep up with the outlandish signing requests for her SlickforceGirl “Marine Mel” posters while fighting for a good cause!
Hope for the Warriors is an amazing 4-star rated charity that aims to enhance the quality of life for post-9/11 service members, their families, and families of the fallen. We are proud to have made a donation from the Saglimbeni Store and the Melanie Iglesias Store.
Special thanks to all of YOU who ordered autographed posters and made our donation possible. We couldn’t do it without you!

It’s not everyday you get to be somebody’s wish. A few months ago, Make-A-Wish called our office. They received a letter from a girl with an inspiring story—Danielle Dietrick was fighting bone cancer, and her dream was to shoot with me at SlickforceStudio. How could anyone say no to this?
Last week, Make-A-Wish flew Danielle to Los Angeles to grant her dream shoot. Danielle is as beautiful on the inside as she is out, and she is a natural on-camera. Her unlimited energy kept our crew smiling the entire day.
I couldn’t have done this without our incredible team, many of whom donated their time and services. Stunning glam was provided by makeup artist Therese Williams and hair stylist Daniel Blaylock, and our wardrobe stylist Tara Wiliams brought racks of amazing clothes. Together, the team transformed Danielle and brought out her inner star. We captured so many different looks throughout the day, each one both beautiful and fun. Special thanks to Bec & Bridge who gifted Danielle her favorite dress at the end of the shoot.
We deeply admire Danielle for her strength and positivity, and we are inspired by her courage. It is our honor to welcome her to the SlickforceStudio family. Thank to you to the wonderful volunteers at Make-A-Wish America for the great work they do, and for making so many wishes come true!
If you’ve been following SlickforceGirl.com, then you already know that our beautiful heroes will be taking a brief rest from saving the world to attend Stan Lee’s Comikaze at the Los Angeles convention center from October 31 thru November 2.
In anticipation of the event, we’ve been releasing creative renderings of our Girls from talented artists across the world. Take, for example, this stunning faux cover pin-up of firefighter Kaitlynn Connor — drawn by illustrator Corey Knaebel and colored by Ula Mos. We’re excited to announce that Corey will be joining us at our Comikaze booth this year, so be sure to come by and meet the growing SlickforceGirl team!

Last week we announced the release of South Korean band B1A4’s new music video “Solo Day”, produced by SlickforceStudio in Los Angeles for WM Entertainment. In celebration of the first million views on YouTube, we’re releasing a behind-the-scenes video detailing the making of the international co-production.
It’s clear from the video how much fun we all had making this video, and it was a pleasure to meet so many talented artists from across the world. Special thanks to both the Korean and American crews—including the stellar SlickforceStudio team—that helped pull off the video that US Billboard is calling “the most delightful video of 2014.”
For Korean version, click here.
In May, SlickforceStudio teamed up with Korean supergroup B1A4 to produce the video for their new song, “Solo Day.” The K-pop band wanted a definitive Hollywood style for their new video, so the five members—Jinyoung, CNU, Baro, Sanduel, and Gongchan—and several key crew flew from Seoul to Los Angeles for the shoot.
B1A4’s fan-base has exploded over the last few years. As a nod to their ever-growing fanbase, we wanted to make it very clear that this was an international production. We chose some of the most iconic California locations we’ve photographed over the years. You may recognize the desert diner location from my WMB 3D: World’s Most Beautiful shoot with Mallika Sherawat and the beach just down the coast from where we shot Kendall Jenner Day One and Melanie Iglesias’ Swim Shoot.
The production of “Solo Day” was quickly etched in my memory as one of the most exciting international co-productions I have ever witnessed. We made amazing friends on this shoot, many of whom I am certain we will see again and again. I particularly enjoyed working closely with Korean director Sungkyun Yoo and his amazing creative team.
The always-stellar SlickforceStudio crew also rose to the occasion, securing locations, crew and equipment for the production in record time. Slickforce’s own wonder-woman Joyce Park and I produced the video, with support by Line Producer Kevin Savarese and Production Coordinator James Mann.
We wish B1A4 all the success in the world, and are excited to announce the release of “Solo Day.” (See it below.) We will release a behind-the-scenes video documenting the making of “Solo Day” soon. Follow my instagram at @NickSaglimbeni for more photos.
