One part of our craft as actors is to look the part for the roles that we can play. Now this doesn’t always mean being beautiful and chiseled – some people are better as “the creepy guy” and keep themselves waif-like, or “the funny fat guy” whose entire career is dependent on them keeping those extra pounds. For me, I don’t really fit into either of this, so for me, being fit is an important part of “the package”.
Well, we’re still alive! That’s a good start to 2013! Honestly, I’m a bit disappointed that nothing happened – at least that we know of. After all that hype and years of speculation and all the odd conscience coming together on that one day, but nothing happened….oh well, keep moving on I guess.
Lately, Michael and I have been taking a few “excursions” with friends to basically any fun or cool place we can think of that’s not too far from LA. Usually we bring our little video camera with us and film the trip and then I’m just working on editing it all, but for this most recent once, we forgot the charger, so we won’t have much of a video, so I’ll just write about it instead…
I’ve finished the video of our mini road trip to Yuma in search of ghost towns. Stops along the way included: Joshua Tree, The Salton Sea, Salvation Island, The Center of The World, The Bridge to Nowhere, The Stairs to Nowhere, an attempt to see Castle Dome, Yuma Crossing and also the Haunted Stage Coach. The lovely companions in the video are our good friends and brilliant actors Cuyle and Angela. Enjoy!
I guess there’s not use in fighting it… the transformation to full Geek has been completed by partaking in a LARP last weekend. In case you don’t know what “LARP” stands for – it’s Live Action Role Play, which generally the connotation is that a bunch of geeks go out into the woods, dress up in medieval costumes, and fight each other with rubber sticks. That might be the very very basic watered down version, but it is actually SO much more complicated than that!
Another year gone, and a new one lays ahead. Time to review what’s been done and set new goals for 2012!
Three big things for me in 2011 was of course the move to LA, getting an agent, and then also working on the film Exhumed, which I think it the best work that I have done to date. While it wasn’t my most prolific year since I spent 2 months traveling across the country and going on a long-awaited honeymoon to Fiji, I’ve finally made it to LA, which is a big step in so many respects. Here is a recap of the projects I worked on in 2011 and where they currently stand in the production process:
I got a day player part on the webseries Love Squared. Love Squared is an LA-based production, shot on location in Newport RI, directed by Aaron Massey and produced by Jhennah Sinclaire. All of the leads had initially been cast out of LA and they were looking for locals for some of the smaller roles.
