<--------------OH HEY SOMEONE GOT THEIR SAG CARD TODAY!
ALSO. Monday was the premiere of Amateur History! wow! It was fun, and awesome to see the culmination of a lot of hard work. Mostly by other people since I was on set for only a few days. Hooray for another feature!!! Here's a picture of the theater, and my name in the credits!
Oh my, lots of fun things on the agenda today, First and foremost I got another callback for a commercial, so that is good that at least I am...starting to get the hang of this very different type of audition style.
Also I heard from the director of "the Famous Joe Project" Eli Rarey, and the film is almost completed in post and ready to screen, which is always so fun! My character is similar to the guy in Cloverfield...in that you see me for about 2 seconds but I am supposedly "holding the camera" for much of it. I feel like it was a really daring and ambitious script so, it'll be fun to see the finished product.
I had one of those fun auditions today where you walk out with the conclusion that A)that was fun and B)I wonder if i walked out and casting looked at each other and said "hey, that girl might just be crazy" It was an interesting audition in that it was for a music video, and they wanted us to play 2 different girls. one good girl and one bad girl. They specifically asked us to bring wardrobe and props for each...so I came in as a Zooey Deschanel type and left...in a very short black dress with shoes with chains on them. What made it fun was that they asked me questions that I had to answer in improv of each character...so fun. I was also the first of the morning so, that may have contributed to the whole "that was great, thanks so much" in a higher pitched voice from them....eh. I tried. It was super fun and I guess we'll see.
In other news, I've started shooting a webseries for the girls of 3SG...its a really small project but I think its a fun one, and not about weird actors in LA so...that's a nice change. A lovely actor named Vanessa Viviane Ledesma (who I met on the set of Glee!) actually offered me the role in the series (written by Julie Henderson, who also plays one of the main girls). I play the nemesis to the hero girls...so naturally I'm kind of an awful mean sorority girl with a penchant for abusing pledges. I know some actors dislike being the villain but...man...i really kind of get a kick out of being the bad guy! Below are a few candid shots from around set...of course I'm around the craft services table. In red bootie shorts, obviously!
Still from 'Perfect Choices'
Hello All!! I revamped the site today to add some stills from 2 more projects that I got back today. I also made a seperate section for Headshots/Acting stuff and Modeling shots, which I've been getting more into lately courtesy of ModelMayhem.com.
Project update wise, the first that I've gotten back is "Perfect Choices", a short that I shot about a year ago in which I played Emily Kraig, an sweet and well-meaning woman who meets her soul mate in the hospital while both are visiting their respective spouses. They discuss how, if it were possible they'd both go back and make different choices, as neither feels supported in their relationships. Fast forward to a year later, and they are happily married...that is until the police show up to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of Emily's 1st husband, and we realize she may not be as innocent as she seemed.
The second is Immaculate (formerly referred to here as "13 Stations" or "7 Sorrows") which the director was lovely enough to give me a few scenes. It really is just a 1st draft, so it won't have all the fun special effects that it will have eventually, but I think the quality is still really beautiful. I've never seen myself on Film before!! This was the project in which I played Amanda, a girl who is on the run from a mysterious supernatural force that is pursuing her relentlessly. While the story itself is suspenseful, what made the project unique was the romantic, sweet, and innocent relationship between Amanda and her boyfriend Tristan, who tries to protect her despite not understanding what is going on at all. Shot on film with a crew of about 30, a larger budget than I've had to date, and an amazing location all to ourselves made this one of my biggest shoots to date.
The last two weeks saw the death of my computer, which made the goal of editing my reel pretty much impossible. Now that I have a new computer, new headshots (being retouched right now!), and these new projects hopefully I'll have a reel by the end of the week!! Also this week I'm shooting with Flight 33 Productions again on Thursday (my first shoot with them was When Aliens Attack). I also got the shoot dates for a new feature that I'm shooting in August, and might be working towards a larger role in another feature shooting the same month. Fun things on the horizon!!
Ok. Its been a while. I've not been the best about updating auditions have I? Oh well...on to developments!
I've joined The Actor's Network, and have gone to quite a few meetings. So far I really enjoy it, and have learned a number of valuable things that I think will really help me.
"When Aliens Attack" premiered on National Geographic on Sun! (And again tonight, at 5 on the west coast, 8 on the East). I was very happy to have a number of closeups...it was a really interesting shoot given that it was one of those randomly cold LA days. Also note, I wasn't allowed to wear ANY makeup...not even foundation or Mascara. Only Dirt. Ha. I got a few stills uploaded in my photos section, but here are a few as well:
