Wow, this past week has been crazy! We have been shooting "The Lady of Shallot" which is a 10-15 min. short that will be sent in to film festivals. It's my small businesses first production and I'm so excited to be learning about producing so that Starlight Studios can grow and continue to produce more films in the future!
I also made a callback for "Father in Israel" which will come to theaters early next year, so cross your fingers for me on that one!
It's so funny how life is full of pleasant surprises as well as bitter disappointments. The older I get the more I learn how to take the disappointments with a grain of salt, let it roll off my back, and focus on the positive. I'm truly learning that whatever we put our minds to, we can achieve.
One of the disappointments I've had recently was finding that a lot had been cut out of a film I was in with Jessica Lange, including my speaking part. You never know if you will end up "on the cutting room floor" in post production when they slim things down for theatrical release. Oh well. Here are some pictures of my scene. Can you believe how SHORT my hair was??? That was only 2 1/2 years ago!

For the last week I have been competing in a talent contest that will move on to a regional and then a national level. Along the way different prizes such as cruises, shopping spree's, recording studio sessions, and more can be won. My main concern for doing this was to get back out in front of audiences, whether I win or not doesn't matter to me. I just wanted to feel myself have the courage to do something that I haven't done in awhile, and enjoy doing it. Sorry the picture is so blurry, I'll try to get some better ones on Tuesday at the finals. We have to go through 3 rounds. First round I sang Kelly Clarkson's "Because of you", second round Natasha Beddingfeilds "Unwritten" and on Tuesday I'll be singing Leona Lewis's "Bleedin Love".

My sister and I auditioned for a new movie today called "Father in Israel". It will most likely be distributed by excel entertainment early next year. Auditions like today are freaking cattle calls I tell ya! SO MANY PEOPLE! Anyways, it would be so fun to land this one with my sis because we auditioned the role of sisters. I would love getting to work with her on a movie set! Cross your fingers for us! We'll keep you posted. ;)
I auditioned for a hosting job for a "how to" series last week and thought I nailed it. The director told me I was the first person he had seen all day to do what he had asked and that I was a breath of fresh air. I walked out of the audition feeling pretty confident I got the job with a compliment like that. A week later and I still haven't heard anything, making me realize that if I haven't heard by now, it means I didn't get the job. I can live with not getting jobs, it happens. But why do people have to give such nice compliments and get your hopes up like that? Ugh. That's what I don't like!
