Ok, I know I've been telling you for months that I had some major developments coming up, and now that everything's official, I can tell you: Golden Egg Film Festival (you know, the one I own and run with Tim) has turned into an international film festival in a whole new way. Every May is GEFF NYC. Winners were and will continue to be chosen here. GEFF LA starts in February. Winners will be chosen here, too. GEFF Cancun happens late April to Early May. Again, winners will be chosen. Immediately following GEFF Cancun will be GEFF Worldwide, also taking place in Cancun, where the winners from each GEFF branch will compete with each other for the various best-of awards. This was the plan from the start, but I didn't think it'd come together this quick!
Needless to say, the GEFF has been taking up a lot of my time (Ever own a film festival? Try owning three.), but acting is still my main focus. Tim and I are both meeting with a casting director soon, so great things to come! It doesn't leave much time to sleep, but that's alright. When you first start out as an actor (or any type of freelance entertainer, for that matter), you learn that this is part of the deal for a while.

The fact that I whole-heartedly understand this quote goes to show that we all have different definitions of "luxury." Truly spectacular work, Rhys.
