The Show Must Go On.......

I recently moved out to LA as off 4 months ago. I have taken one acting class in January. I currently work at a Jersey Mikes and am saving money for more acting classes in the near future. Life is full of adventures and risks and I want to be living in the moment for every second of it!

    Two weeks ago my wonderful boyfriend bought me a membership to LA casting, a website where I can apply for all types of films.  My first audition was for a student short film called Edge of Thorns, I auditioned for a Lead Role in this film and actually received the part! Working on the set of this film was amazing, the crew were great, the director Jenny Dang was talented and wonderful, and the other actors/ actresses were talented. The shoot took up to 7 hours. During the shoot, we did our scenes in a repetitious manner but still trying to have a authentic reaction in each scene. After this shoot I found out how hard it is to be an actress if you truly work hard every moment you are on set. I think you have to be ready to work and work hard even when you are not on camera. There is always something for me to do to push myself farther and become a better actress. 
     My second audition was for a student "webisode " in which I auditioned for a supporting role. This day was quite an adventure. It started in the morning when I went to work and my tire popped! I walked home and decided to stop being upset, things happen for reasons. I made a choice to be an actress and I would go to that audition no matter what. So I walked around my block to find someone to print out headshots and resumes but no one would. So I took what was last of my money, walked to a target, bought a printer, then walked that sucker home! That was an extremely long 20 minute walk, on the bright side I toned my arms! After I printed my headshot and resume I grabbed my stuff, walked to a grocery store to get change, then walked around to find a bus. Luckily I found a bus that could take me some of the way (10 minutes), then when I was dropped off I finished walking to the school where I had never visited before. The walk there was roughly 35 minutes. The audition went great! The crew thought i was funny and they liked me, but my hair color and height didn't match what they were looking for. They sent me a wonderful email stating they liked my audition and will keep me in mind for other episodes. I walked home for 1.5 hours, but the entire time I could not stop smiling. I was proud of myself! I have now realized I am strong and I wont fall apart. I came out here to follow a dream and nothing can stop me! Not even if it takes my entire life trying to get there. Because in the end its the journey, not the destination we all remember!
