So again with the missed posting! Sheesh, like sand through the hour glass...and I have zero pics to share...methinks I should start posting random shots, cuz everyone loves pics right?
Anywhooo, it's a good thing I waited, because I have exciting news!

So last week, I auditioned for two movies!  The Hangover 3 and an indy pic called "Blood n' Whiskey" and they were totally different!  We had rushed up for the second and it was an improv audition.  Which is good and bad right?  I didn't have to learn a specific story but I had to be ready to do whatever comes up...yikes right!?
Well, I got the part!  In "Blood n' Whiskey!"  I am over the moon with excitement! Are you so excited tooooooo?!  It shoots at the end of next month. Yeehaw!
she totally wore these to school on show n tell day. sooooo funny

Last week, I auditioned for another movie, one I really liked the part, although I haven't heard anything yet...

Now onto this week, I have two auditions! Two! One for a commercial and one for an event type gig.  Both very different, but I'm excited for the opportunities both present!  Will keep you posted for cereal! What did ye think of the random pics?
Have an awesomesauce week peeps!

Thoughtful Thursday

. Friday, September 14, 2012 .

 I'm a day late on Thoughtful Thursday, ah well, the last two days were so busy!  I has one audition and an actual itty bitty shoot yesterday.  Then today I had two more auditions! Yowza peeps!  One was down in Tucson and of course the other was up in Phoenix, so we were driving fools to try and get everything done.  
we waited and waited
Why you wonder, I mean there are still 12 hours of daylight?  Well...because we waited for capital F-our hours in line!  Mooooooooo, cattle call all around!
It was for being a lil ol extra in a big ol movie! They need 300 people! So tootsies crossed to be one of many.  I was actually number 493 in line...I'm pretty sure they ended up over 1000...

so many peeps in line
Then we raced back up to the valley for an improv audition where I had a groovtastic time!  Hoping for a callback!
almost there!

As for yesterdays stuff...
the audition was a little contrived...I heard them tell the woman that went two before me that she had the part...
what's a girl to do??? Well go for it anyway of course? And take solace in the fact that the already cast kid has dark hair and olive skin--as does the one they cast (as the hippie Aunt) and well, if you've seen me...I don't have dark hair or even close to olive skin!

I have at least one audition on the books for next week and a networking we go!

Thoughtful Thursday

. Thursday, September 6, 2012 .

I am thinking of doing this every Thursday.  Just writing out my thoughts.
 Think how awesomesauce an idea it is?! A) I'll be sure to blog once a week-phew and B) I can emote about my attempt to start a new career.

I've been trying to dip my toe in a new career all year.  I don't think I've really taken it seriously until now.  I have really wanted a new career and I have talked about it, but until this week I haven't sat down and strategized and given myself a serious talking to about what it takes to actually have a new career!  

I want to be an actor.

Crazy Town you think?! 
Well it's not quite like going back to school to get my masters.  Just like if I wanted to become a doctor, lawyer (indian chief) or...I'd have to buckle down and train and study and really learn the chosen craft. 

So, that is what I have to do.  I've gone on some auditions this year, I've got some nice headshots. I've even landed some roles, but I have a long long way to go.  Lots to learn and lots of risks to take.  So here I go--even if I never attain the goal of working actor--it seems like a worthwhile thing to fail at. Wish me broken legs would ya?!
