So, last week I had a casting for a print ad for Apple computers. The role was for a “creative business professional.” I put on an outfit, took some snapshots for Superfuture and Lookbook, and headed to the casting. When i got back, my post in Superfuture had gotten a lot of criticism. I paired this beautiful Diane Von Furstenburg blouse with some high waisted shorts, as pictured below.
A bunch of the dudes on Sufu were somehow offended by the shorts. Granted, lots of people liked it as well, but many people had something to say. The couple guys who didn’t like it thought the proportions were off, and that i should have worn a pencil skirt instead. Blah blah blah. I would totally do that too, but I would wear it with the shorts too. As they say, women dress for other women, not for men.
Anyhow, I’m on hold for the Apple job! Can’t get too excited yet, because as luck would have it, the last print job and commercial i got put on hold for released me last minute, but hell, Apple gave me pos rep. Shorts validated.

wohoo! it aired this weekend, and here is a little screen shot of me and Sally Field!
my scene is tiny…literally just two lines, but still…i’m happy about it. and you know what, they all say that sometimes it’s these little one or two line roles that are even harder for actors to get right because they try to do too much (they being casting directors and agents and managers i’ve spoken with).
if you wanna catch the episode for yourself, you can see it on ABC’s website!
MY GRANDMA WOKE UP!!!!! i wish it had been while i was in taiwan, but the good news is that she’s conscious, she can speak and move her arms, but she’s pretty out of it. she needs dialysis every couple days, but she’s breathing on her own. talk about a tough cookie at age 93. maybe we can squeeze a few more good years out of her. it’s hard to say. but at least my family gets to hang with her some more.
OK folks, if any of you care to watch it, the episode of Brothers and Sisters that I worked on airs THIS COMING SUNDAY at 10pm on ABC! Apparently they used a clip of my scene in last week’s “Next week on Brothers & Sisters….” commercial they always play at the end of an episode. Sweet! I’m excited, because once it airs, my IMDb credit will appear. Yay! So….if you see it, let me know what you think? I dunno if i’ll catch it sunday…i don’t get cable…haha. But i’m getting the episode taped by a video editing company so that I can use the footage for my reel. Neato.
it has been seven days since i returned from taiwan and i’m still feeling a little outta wack. working late nights doesn’t help the cause, since i get home after 2am and i’m still amped. so i guess i’ll share these sleepless nights with you muthers. so, since i’m on a video posting trend, i want to share the short film that i shot with some classmates from Lesly Kahn & Co, this acting studio i studied at last year. The lady who started the school, none other than Lesly Kahn, decided to hold a film festival competition of sorts for her birthday. We had about three weeks to come up with an idea and shoot it, but there were rules.
1. Film should be no longer than 3 min.
2. Everyone in the class must have a speaking role.
3. No person with professional experience editing, directing, writing, or producing may do those jobs.
4. The story must have a beginning, middle, and end.
5. There should be a twist at the end.
There were a few more, but these are the big ones. Anyway, it took us a week to decide what my class was going to do. I pitched an idea, and another dude pitched an idea. The class chose mine! Wohoo! So, I had a story framed out, but we needed to write a script. There were two guys in my class who were really excited to participate in shit. Nick Lusk, and Jason Williams. The three of us wrote the script together off of my outline. While shooting, Nick and I set up pretty much all the shots and lighting, although we did sometimes have help from our classmates. We also directed a majority of it, and did all the editing. Jason also helped quite a bit.
All in all, I proudly had a big hand in making this little short happen in about two weeks time and I am very happy with the end result. So…..here it is! Oh, and in case you were wondering–yes, the photo that i use as a header for my blog is from the shoot.
if you want to compare it to any of the other films made by other classes, HERE is a link to those. We lost to one of LESLY’s OWN CLASSES. the one called “monday night class” when you go to the link. Favoritism anyone?
