P R O F E S S I O N A L  O V E R V I E W : 

I am a 35 year old Icelandic Artist / Costumer / EntrepreneurI have been working under the name S Y L V Í A / L O V E T A N K since my graduation from the Fine Arts Dept of The Willem de Kooning Academy in Holland in 2007. I have worked in the Film Industry since 2012 within the Costume Dept where I was offered a job on HBO´s 3rd season of The Game of Thrones. 

There I discovered a new passion and talent. I have been fortunate enough to take on large scale and challenging projects in my short career within the industry. I have been focusing on Costume / Break Down / Standby / Styling and Wardrobe Design which comes very naturally to me with years of painting under my belt as well as working a lot within the Fashion Industry. I am looking to further my career in the Film Industry and take on challenging projects. I am very skilled at what I do, I am organized, fast, a quick learner and I work very well under pressure.

On Fortitude I worked as BreakDown Technician for both Principal and Supporting Artists Costumes. I did Standby for all Supporting Artists, as well as Principals. During Prep on Fortitude, I set up both the Costume and Break Down departments from scratch in a converted Fish Factory on the East Coast, buying for each department, as well as decorating both departments as well as two Green Rooms successfully to a high standard.

 

HBO / FIRE AND BLOOD PRODUCTIONS : GAME OF THRONES S04 : 

May - November 2013: COSTUME BREAKDOWN

In 2013 I spent 7 months in Belfast as Costume trainee on HBO´s 4th season of The Game of Thrones. My work on Game of Thrones included extremely detailed and complexed Costume Break Down on a whole new tribe presented in the 4th season; THE THENNS as well as breaking down Costumes for armies of Supporting Artists. The experience was priceless, and there I learned a complete spectrum of Break Down - from delicate work on fine dresses or armor, to heavy work on torn, muddy or bloody Costumes as well as everything in between. Shooting in Iceland for two weeks I oversaw all Costume Break Down off and on set on all Supporting Artists Costumes as I was sent from Ireland on the behalf of Fire and Blood´s Break Down Dept. 

 

HBO / PEGASUS : GAME OF THRONES S03 : 

November-Desember 2012: COSTUME BREAKDOWN ASST

I got offered an assisting job to The Head of the Break Down Department due to my experience as a painter where we broke down all costumes of every SA on and off set. Game of Thrones S03 shot in Iceland for 3 weeks, and as a result I was offered the 4th season in Belfast.
