Casting a cast


• Casting a cast It begins, the next level in the world of possibilities! Things are aligning to a point of unstoppable momentum. Every year things must continue to grow. If by steps, leaps, or extremely large bounds. This passing week me and a team of people I work with held an audition for a…

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 /…

SNL


• “SNL” There lies the issue with starting a sentence. Said the man waiting for his cue. Saturday night live is a show that has been around for 40 years. That is a long time for any show to be on. It had its ups and downs, moments of creating superstars and also seeing people…

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…

Straight Man in a Queer World


• Straight Man in a Queer World I’m known as an unconventional doer. An outside the box kind of tinkerer. My methods are always questionable from any first encounter with new people. My philosophy is “Why listen to a NO when you can turn it into a YES!” Truth of the matter is, most NO’s…

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.…

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…
