July 31 – Where it’s at.
Been on a bit of a hiatus. Finished the Meisner program at Freehold Theatre, and boy did I need a break. That was a tough run, but good. That which doesn’t kill you makes you stronger sort of thing.
This will be a short post since there isn’t much going on at the moment. I have an appointment to get my headshots in a couple a weeks, from a guy whose work I really like. Mark Brennan. Check out his website.
After that I’ll be ready to audition. That’s frightening. I’m nervous about that, but what actor isn’t I suppose. I’m looking to do maybe some short film type work for now, get some stuff together for a reel.
There is also a class at Freehold this fall that looks promising. Advanced Rehearsal and Performance. It’s being taught by Annette Toutonghi, who is a great teacher. I’ve taken Rehearsal and Performance before (twice), but this is Advanced, you have to have completed Meisner or equivalent to be in the class.
Part of me is like, do I want to take this class because it will be a good learning experience, and I’ll get more performance practice under my belt, or is it just an excuse for me to keep taking classes, and not get out into the real world.
I like to procrastinate, and this would be a way to procrastinate while seemingly not procrastinating. I keep going back and forth with it. I think I will end up taking the class though. It seems to good of an opportunity to waste.
And finally, I’m working on a script with my friend Bill. Our goal is to do a web series, get a following, and somehow make money. It’s a great concept (Bill’s idea), and I think we can work it into something.
Of course I can’t talk about it now, not because we are being all secretive, but because we haven’t worked out the details of the story line yet. Of course when we do, then we won’t be able to talk about it, because we don’t want anyone stealing our cool idea.
