That’s a wrap!


• “That’s a wrap!” There is nothing more exciting than a film wrapping! We shot our final scene on this past Tuesday for ‘All in the Course’. I suppose I have to dream up a poster for it now. I have crayons, so that shouldn’t be too hard. I really loved the experience working with…

Sore-ish


• “Sore-ish” Why did I write such a hard fighting sequence? Five plus hours we filmed on Saturday of dialogue, then three major fight scenes. Afterward we had some yummy food. All together I have to say this shoot continues to be interestingly fun. My first big filming event as a writer / director /…

Managing


• “Managing” It is fun managing your time, money, and the people around you. Oh, and I also got signed to a management company for acting. That feeling to be doing things which progress my career in entertainment. Working hard to be “the best in the field” is one thing I have never really pushed…

A Bit Part


• A Bit Part “But you were background.” Yeah, it was a bit of a bit part. And you know what? That’s the point. I was doing one more thing greater than a person who wished they could be in this business. Being an entertainer is bit part after bit part. Because we are never…

Letter of Reason


• Letter of Reason A fellow blogger asked me to post some photos of a play I am in over at The Rose Theater. We have performed the play 3 times now. It is getting better with each go at it. With a steady crowd, I’ve learned a little from each of them after the performance.…

Unity?

Macbeth – Stage-manger


Macbeth – Stage-manger; Saying the word “Macbeth” is considered bad luck. While I personally believe that superstition ain’t the way, I do believe that this is an opportunity to increase my skills, experience and level of involvement in theater. I was asked to perform one of the roles in Macbeth, the witch to be exact.…

Twelfth Night


Twelfth Night; Acting!!! My favorite play is the “Twelfth Night”. It just always hit me as the most romantic comedy of Shakespeare. From the lips of “Orsino, Duke of Illyria” who has some of great philosophical breaths of literature. “If music be the food of love, play on; Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting,…

Standing in last minute


Standing in last minute; The power of “NO” has always held me back. I say this knowing I rarely say it when it comes to working within my craft. I say no all the time with business opportunities when I feel there is nothing to gain for either party. When both parties are gaining something…

3 of 1 of me


3 of 1 of me; I was in a band compiled of 7 musicians. Most of the time they limited themselves to practicing for shows. I was lucky enough that they also performed at shows. Occasionally someone asked them if they were in a band. It seemed as if marketing, and networking were limited to…
