I hope you all enjoyed your summer. I don’t know about you, but I have no idea where the time has gone. Do you realize it is almost September?
I am going to start this post off with my awesome good news, that I have been waiting so long to share with you. If you have recently perused my imdb page, you will see that I now have a new credit. A credit for a movie with people you have probably actually heard of. I am pleased and super excited to say that next month I will have a small part in a movie! Not only is this awesome because I get to act, which is how I would like to spend the rest of my life, but this role is on an ACTRA production, meaning that once the contract is signed, I should be able to apply for my first ever ACTRA credit!!! Good things are on the horizon and I can’t wait to reach them. While we wait for some behind the scenes set pics, you can check out and like the imdb page 🙂
You might have noticed that it has been over a month since my last post. My apologies, I have been busy, as I hope most of you were. Either enjoying the weather, working hard or pursuing your dreams. I have been doing a bit of all 3. When I last left you, I was super nervous about the commercial I was about to shoot, mostly because I had to do my own hair and makeup. And bring my own wardrobe. And because I had a ginormous bruise running down my arm. The nerves kept up until I got there, and intensified as they went over the clothes I had brought, peaking when I had to put on the first one, and do my hair and makeup. But then, it became fun. Yes, I need to work on my makeup applying skills. Yes, an industrious quantity of the stuff they use to cover tattoos didn’t quite get rid of my bruise. But, I had an amazing time on that 3 day shoot. It was actually for production/promotional videos for Techcraft wall beds. You can find me on their videos at costco.ca, which definitely brings me up a notch as far as my grandmother and mother are concerned. I also got to meet and work with some awesome people whose paths I hope I get to cross some time soon. Not to mention a tour guide for when I next visit London 😉
A lot of my work was for the campground, not for my acting, but I still made it to Toronto twice more and had the most amazing time on set, meeting people and watching the actors at work. I also worked one day as an extra here in Montreal. There was only one actor in this particular scene, but that means there’s more time for the camera to focus on me and my emerald dress, right? It was one of those days where it is raining, but not enough for it to show on camera, so we shoot anyways. It would have been horrible, only my boyfriend for the day had an umbrella and we had some interesting conversations that made the time fly 🙂
I only got to see Carolyne once, when we went to see Guardians of the Galaxy, which I think everyone should go see. We didn’t really have much time to go in depth on everything going on, but we did get pretty excited when talking about all of the cool new productions happening in Montreal these upcoming months. Fingers crossed for both of us 🙂
I do have to admit that it isn’t only work that has been keeping me busy. We got a new manager at work, so I should be able to cut down on a lot of my hours, but my aunt, my cousin and my cousin’s baby boy came to visit us from Saskatchewan for a little over a week. It was really nice seeing them, both for conversations in my living room and the whale watching in Quebec City.
Other than my completing the Color Run with my brother and cousins, that is pretty much all that has been going on lately. I am trying to find a place to stay while volunteering at TIFF in the beginning of September, and will try to get back to posting weekly.
