What a fun week! I got to read Shakespeare's #67 Sonnet for the Sonnet Slam in Central Park a few days ago. Fun times in iambic pentameter? Count me in!
Jim Meilof asked me to interview for his YouTube channel, BroSpeak. I had a blast answering his questions and inquiries from the people watching. I expected most of what was asked, but some were out of left field! Show him some love, guys!
"School bored me. Being educated and being intelligent are two different things. I thought I was smart enough. And I wanted to be an entertainer. I stopped going to school as a way of saying I was mature, a way of saying I was going to choose who I was going to become." - Djimon Hounsou
Shot two scenes with Tim's help, and they're both quality footage that I can be very proud of. Being the spectacular writer/director he is, it's no surprise he had fabulous ideas to work with! Do you know the feeling of being really excited and completely exhausted at the same time after being part of something amazing? I'm there right now.
Our very talented director/cinematographer friend, Jose Alberto Venutolo Chirinos, helped us out with shooting one of them yesterday. I can't recommend him enough, and his website doesn't do him justice. Need a cinematographer and/or a director? Reach out to him!
"You don't grow up in a town of 700 thinking you're going to be an actress. I loved doing [school] plays, but it was just something to keep me busy." - Michelle Monaghan
I'm getting new headshots! Had a fabulous shoot with Shana Schnur of Shana Schnur Photography, and I'm not at all surprised at how wonderful the shots are. If you need a photographer, Shana is ridiculously talented. Call her!!
Now to get them out to casting directors so they can call me in for more auditions...
"With independent film, simply because they don't have the money to make a big-budget film, they're forced to make a story that's important to them, that they would like to see on film, a personal story that people can relate to, about people, where you can see the love of the characters."
- Seymour Cassel
I had so much fun today playing with an adaptation of Hekuba! Yes, Hekuba is a tragedy. Yes, I said it was fun. Just trust me on this. It's an actor thing.
"You have a much longer career as a character actor." - John Rhys-Davies
