Filming in 2018
This time all shots were taken outdoors, background actors were engaged, and I had the chance to meet and work with new people - I’d like to call them a second unit – which brought even more creativity and fresh ideas to the project. I was extremely lucky to work with a very experienced female director of photography and can ensure you, that the new, additional scenes turned out awesome!
Check out the new behind-the-scenes photos on the Marilyn Fan Website and on Flickr.

• no upload limit
• no specific aspect ratio
• a feature to create albums to sort the photos

So I discovered Flickr and thought I’ll give it a try! If you would like to see my Flickr portfolio, check it out and let me know what you think. I will regularly upload photos, so you might find new images every time you visit my Flickr page.
Meeting Movie Legend Charlton Heston
Just recently I found out that he had met Marilyn Monroe once at a Golden Globe Awards ceremony! I was delighted! Not only had they actually met, although they never appeared in a movie together, but they also were honored with a Golden Globe Award of the same category at the same time. On March 5, 1962 Charlton Heston and Marilyn Monroe got the Henrietta Award (a special Golden Globe award) for being the “World’s Favorite Stars.”
The greatest Marilyn Monroe movies
I adore Marilyn’s performance in “River of No Return”, “Bus Stop” and “Niagara”. And I love watching her romantic comedies “Let's Make Love” and “The Prince and the Showgirl”.
Nevertheless there are three movies, which I’d call my favorite Marilyn Monroe films. Read further to find out which ones and why I consider them outstanding.
Marilyn Monroe In Memoriam 2018
She was so special, no one could ever replace her, but we can honor her legacy and always remember her work as an actress. That’s exactly what I’m doing with my projects as a look-alike and impersonator. I greatly admire Marilyn for who she was and how she lived her life, for her talent and her love for animals. I am sure she was a humorous and vulnerable person with an inner beauty, who just wanted to be loved.
I do believe that’s something we all have in common with her.

While I was busy with my new photo shoot, one of my pictures as Marilyn was presented at an exhibition in L.A. This exhibition also coincided with the release of the book “Marilyn” (a monograph), which features this photo as well. I felt honored and was motivated for my first photo shoot in California. Here's your exclusive first look at my new photos! (More coming soon!)
Happy Birthday Marilyn Monroe!
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing who to cling to
When the rain set in
And I would have liked to have known you
But I was just a kid
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did

Marilyn Fan - The Movie: A Short Film by Babsy Artner
My intention was not to make another biographical film (there already are quite a few good biopics). I instead had the idea to write a suspenseful mystery-thriller story revolving around a character Marilyn Monroe would have loved to play.

Emily is not only a fantastic photographer, she’s also an exceptionally friendly and nice person. I immediately felt comfortable working with her.
