Tonight I am attending the premiere and Q&A for the film Margarine Wars. Helen McCready, who cast the film, will be there. I’m on her e-mail list which any actor can sign up for at http://www.HelenWheels.net. You might remember that I had an audition with her for a project produced in Arizona.
I am trying to submit Pick Me! to the Hollyshorts Film Festival but I will be making the late deadline as I have to have all the paperwork in order and make a copy of the film for mailing. I attended the Phoenix Film Festival the weekend before last and I got the flex pass, which lets you see four films. I saw a cool documentary about a Brazilian artist called Bel Borba Aqui, a strange movie called Beyond the Black Rainbow, and two other great films called Searching for Sonny and How Do You Write a Joe Sherman Song? I am now following the directors of both films on Twitter: Andrew Disney and Gary King respectively. The Phoenix Film Festival is a pretty major festival with films from around the world and top-tier production teams. I badly want to get on the radar of the up and coming Indie film directors, people who actually make SAG films, not the no-pay-Mom’s-camcorder amateur indie films.
I haven’t acted in anything lately nor have I had any auditions. I am awaiting audition news from the Equity theatres and agent bookings. I actually got to talk to the head of my agency on the phone and we had a great conversation. She wanted to have a chance to get to know me better, which I really appreciate.
I’ll be stepping up my game since I’ve let my sub assignments and certification program work sap my energy and efforts. Guess what? The costume group I am part of, The Arizona Avengers, are going to be at the Avengers movie premiere on May 3. I’ll be there as Belladonna.
