I’m really making large gaps with these posts. I hope your holiday season is starting out merry. I’m singing in a Christmas concert with my church choir. Here is the event page on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/582314988874089/ It’s this Saturday, December 15, at 2pm at St. Mark’s Catholic Church in Venice, CA. Then I’m off to visit home for three weeks just in time for my parents to move out of the family home. It’s the only house I ever lived in and where all my memories are stored. I’ll be seeing all my friends in the Portland area whom I don’t see very often. It’s slightly cold in LA right now and it’s to the point I actually have to wear a sweater to bed.
La Famille episodes one and two are written but three and four need to be finished. I only have to take each section for each woman in the original screenplay and add 25 to 30 pages and edit all of them. Then it’s the push to get this thing produced and in the hands of the right people. The Go-Girls feature is officially cancelled. I couldn’t get any money or anyone reliable to help me, so I had to finally tell everyone it was over. I will be filming a pre-quel short that needed to have the production date moved due to Thanksgiving and the wildfires. After, I will submit it to shorts festivals and see what happens.
On Veterans’ Day, I booked a co-star in new re-creation series and I had one line. I got the most money I have ever gotten for a day on set, making my year total earned for acting $600. That may look like a small amount, but it’s the most money I’ve ever made (except for when I did Rejected No More.) There have been theatre auditions with the last one looking promising, but in the end, I wasn’t cast. But my Shakespeare was on fleek. So, no theatre credits at the moment. I got my first SAG-AFTRA voucher from background on a music video. I need two more of those to be eligible.
I got behind on my mailings so I’m making up for that now. I did get two commercial callbacks in a row in July and September. I met for a solo coaching session with Chris Game about my not getting callbacks and he helped me fix it. I’m hoping for many more commercial auditions and finally booking them. And finally getting some SAG-AFTRA TV/Film work. Getting back to class is tough for me because of my finances. I have to be able to pay my rent, but I really need to be in class.
