Jill: Actress, Makeup Artist & Producer
Meet Jill Sandmire, Chicago based superstar with a multi-faceted career in film, commercial, and television as an actress, make-up artist, and producer. Producing is a passion for Jill, especially when it is by women and for women. We love that her work features roles for women that are inspiring and empowering.
“I don’t know what I would do without my Lauren bag by MotoChic Gear. I use this bag every-single-day. I am an avid rider and commute to my office on my 2008 Triumph Bonneville café racer ‘Medusa’, and saddlebags are just not conducive for my sleek city bike. Not only is my Lauren bag essential it is a great looking bag and fits my aesthetic perfectly. I have had it for 2 years, and despite what I put it through it is in great condition. As the president and CEO of my production company Jilli Artistry LLC, I’m busy and on the move. I work in film production and I am able to carry all the things I need in my bag all while looking professional and stylish.”
“It is perfect for travel too. On my trip to Santa Cruz, CA shooting my latest project called “Rogue Women”, a comprehensive documentary about women who ride, this bag was perfect for on the go interviews, holding my mic set-up, location sheets, releases, slate, extra battery packs, and my Go-Pros. I was recently helping out another production called “Women in the Front Seat” which is currently in post-production so keep an eye out for that, I can be seen riding with my Lauren Bag. My entire production company is built around supporting women and women-owned businesses and MotoChic is one of my favorites to support. The quality of their products and the aesthetics are unmatched from what I have seen for women riders. The level of design and thought put into each product is truly a wonder.”
Items in my Lauren Bag by MotoChic Gear: wallet, kick-stand puck, Ray-Bans aviator style, Samsung tablet, external battery charger, multi-tool by Columbia, Noisefloor water bottle (Chicago local Sound Production Company), sharpie (a must-have as a filmmaker), sunscreen SPF 55, hand sanitizer, MotoChic Face Mask, change of shoes, and my lucky charm, a leather-bound crystal, and bob-tail.
