Yes, it's Saturday morning and I'm doing my weekly blogging. Usually I'm a day or two off in the other direction, not early like this. I'm shaking things up a bit. Since I'm shooting that music video tomorrow, I likely won't have much time to plant myself in front of a computer then, so here I am. Anyway, good morning!
It feels good to be getting ready for a shoot. As an entertainer who isn't getting called in by every production company yet (yes, yet. Give it time.), I'm happy to be on one such company's list for tomorrow. Being an actor can be very discouraging before you "make it big." It takes a lot of time to build a career. All those "overnight stars" you've undoubtedly heard about, those actors who suddenly become popular once they've starred in a popular movie, put YEARS into their careers before getting the recognition they deserve. It's part of the job. Any actor versed in their business can tell you this. Am I complaining? Not at all. I'll be able to use everything I'm learning now for character material at some point down the road. Right now, I'm just happy to know my name's on a call list for tomorrow. It's nice when you're the cool kid.
