Today is October 1st and I have my October goals 🙂 By the end of this month, I hope to have checked off :
-Start Horseback riding
-Update my Demo Reel
-Stunt Stage and Stage Combat Classes
-30 Day Challenge
These goals obviously have smaller things I need to accomplish in order to complete them, which is good, because it is a lot easier to tackle baby steps. The 30 day challenge is something my cousins invited me to do, where have to work out for a good 25 minutes every day, sending sweaty pictures to each other, or paying the fine if we don’t. We will either be overweight and broke, or healthy and rich. I am hoping for Option #2.
I know it has only been a few days since my last post, but I`ve been busy. In addition to coming up with my goals for the next few months, I had an audition on Sunday morning, and class yesterday.
The audition went pretty well, like I am more confident about this audition that I have been about any other in quite some time (not since last year, the project I got a callback for before the project died 😦 ) I was given two sets of sides to prepare, one for the character I submitted for, and one for a completely different character with an Australian accent. I checked my CV to make sure, but I definitely don’t boast an Australian accent, because I am terrified enough of the British one I think is sort of decent. So, I made an effort to try to get it, but I have to admit I concentrated a lot more on the other part, the one I really wanted to get. There are a lot of similarities with me, and while she seemed to ramble without purpose, I justified every line to myself and really enjoyed it. The guy I auditioned for, who had been in class with Suzanna with me last Spring, said I did it different than they had seen her while writing the scene, but I also brougth a vulnerability that made him want to take me in his arms. That`s a good sign, right? Either way, it seems like an awesome project, he`s super nice, so I am crossing my fingers that this turns into something. Especially since it is a collaborative project where I would actually have a say in the development of my character. I have to wait at least 2 weeks to find out, but it will hopefully be worth it 🙂
Class yesterday was a blast. After a day at McGill with lots of breaks to hang out and talk, we were a few students short and got to do the same between scenes. I got to be the reader for a scene from Suits, which I would absolutely love to get on in real life, and had different readers for both of the takes of my one scene. I still need to work on interacting with my scene partner as the bitch, but I definitely improved. I can now talk as the bitch, I just need a little help sometimes with the listening as the bitch, without a smile on my face. Suzanna said she wouldn’t generally cast me as the bitch anyway, but it was so much fun to play one, at least for a little while 🙂
I also finished This Is Where I Leave You yesterday, and can’t wait to go see the movie tomorrow with Carolyne! After bailing on her last week, we definitely need to compare game plans 🙂
