Film producer Andi Reiss of the UK decided that a documentary about silhouettes should be made before the art dies out. He contacted full-time London silhouette artist Charles Burns. Charles emailed Houston’s Cindi Rose, said by a San Antonio newspaper to be the fastest silhouette snipper in the world. They scheduled a new “snip off” contest to add some drama to the documentary. The contest to benefit the Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation was held at Audi Central after a lunch at Seasons 52. I took the crew around to film some of Houston’s hot spots and will let you know when it airs. Everyone who got a silhouette made was filmed, including Laura Max Nelson, Ben Harwood Rose, Roland and Karen Garcia, Angelica Chapman,JoAnne Naponic, Michael Alexander, Lili Rubin, and Debbie Pakzaban. But who will be snipped out?
