I have been checking a lot of things off of my list in the past few days, but first, I wanted to thank everyone for all of the headshot love <3
On Thursday night at rehearsals we went through all of our scenes, ironing out the kinks and finalizing what we have already worked on. I am off book and can’t wait to see what it will look like with costumes and the set and everything 🙂
Yesterday I was supposed to have an audition for an amazing project by someone whose work I respect. The breakdown for the role was almost word for word the one I had written for myself when trying to figure out what my brand was. I don’t think I have wanted a role this much since the last time I auditioned for this guy. In the end, my audition was at the same time that I was supposed to be filming something else, so I sent in a self-tape yesterday afternoon. I am definitely more confident doing those after the Self Tape Challenge last month, but I still put way too much pressure on myself and stress out about things I can’t control. Now that it is out there, I have to just let it go and hope for the best.
As for the filming, it was definitely an experience, and ultimately a lot of fun. It was a student project, so there was a learning curve, but they cared about the project and making sure we were comfortable, and I really like the story they are trying to tell. Technical difficulties gave me ample time to get to know my costar, talking about our careers, favorite films, upcoming projects. Often, one of my favorite parts of being on set (other than simply being on set and acting, which are a given) is meeting new people who are hustling along with me 😉
This morning I have been listening to Bonnie Gillespie’s SMFA Essentials and getting ready for my next tier jump. I am so glad you get to be on this journey with me 🙂
