One thing that slightly worries me, but that I also love about my acting career is that I generally don’t audition for the parts I get. That might sound awesome, and it is, but I also don’t get the parts I do audition for. Once, they even wrote a part just for me after I auditioned for another part. I obviously can’t complain. Today I want to share about a short I should be doing at the end of September, and a role I drove to Cornwall for this weekend. The short I was offered after having an amazing time doing a quick scene for a film competition back in the Spring, and the role was for a film called Unfit Misfit, by 3 Angels Power.
I have a habit of getting into things without asking enough questions, because I am so eager to be on set and act, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. In the end, the three sisters and their mother were really nice, and so enthusiastic and devoted to their project. We were thrown a huge curveball when we were supposed to start filming the scene, and they handled it like complete professionals, as if it didn’t even faze them. We went to a beautiful location and some of my experiences were firsts, while others were very familiar. I had never had to jog on camera before, other than quick scenes of me running away from someone. This time, I was legitimately jogging on a path, as if I do it every day. So glad I have been working on that, or I would have been a sweaty mess! The familiarity came from me being tied up. If you saw The Dark Shack, you know that is how I spent most of that film. I can’t tell you more about the movie, but you can find out for yourself when it comes out around Halloween 😉
Other than filming and working on future projects, I had a Military Disaster Day at work, saw some movies and reorganized my entire room (thank you Paul and Daddy <3 ) The Military Disaster Day was at McGill, so we got to pretend to be in a chaotic situation, where military doctors would have to triage and treat us. It was a lot of fun, and I say this after spending the entire time pretending to be unconscious. I don’t know if I say this enough, but I love my job at the Sim Center 🙂
The movies I saw were the Man from U.N.C.L.E. with Carolyne, and Ricki and the Flash with my parents. I really enjoyed both, and would love to hear if any of you saw any really good movies this summer that I should check out 🙂
“Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves; vanity, to what we would have others think of us.”
