So it’s with great excitement that I get to share how I booked my first feature film amidst scrambling ‘organic’ eggs while simultaneously brewing some Hawaiian Kona coffee from my dudes at Empire Coffee & Tea Co. (I’ve never written a more pretentious statement… but I like what I like). My dear friend who used to work in a coffee shop Shia LaBeouf would frequent out in California told me this stuff sells for the large bills. I’m talkin’ multiples of five. It’s delicious with a fork-full of unrefined coconut oil (okay, that was the most pretentious sentence…)
It’s been a great week of artistic exploration but also one of personal gain. I’ve had fun submitting to a slew of auditions so far in 2016. Fun is the key. I’m trained; intentional. I’ve spent a decade working largely for free. Now let’s have fun with it, right? Let’s make folks feel something. Tap into something larger. And hold myself responsible to knowing what I offer is unique and professional. Interesting and independently fascinating.
The truth of the matter is: we’re all independently fascinating. We just need to get out of our own way. Unlock opportunities.
The fun detail from this week is I received a phone call in the middle of preparing for a wonderfully active day: I booked my first feature film. A small part. But hell yeah. I get to help tell a story. And that‘s a fact I’m damn proud of.
More details to follow–stay tuned!
