Below are stills from my first audition that I taped at SAG-AFTRA. I had so much fun working on this. It was the best example of, how Tim Phillips says it in his book: “Audition for your career, not the job.”
First of all, I LOVED reading the script, and then working on the French accent and this character was fantastic. I learned so much just from doing this audition. I am very grateful for the opportunity. Big #shoutout to my manager Rosella Olson for getting me the audition and to the #sagaftrafoundation ! #whatablast #gratefulfortheopportunity #audition #sagaftra #sagfilm #featurefilm #greatscript #funcharacter #sagaftramember #unionactor @ SAG-AFTRA NY
Get rid of all your plastic disposable bottles!
Today I worked together with ‘t Klokhuis and the Dopper Company to inspire the children of the YMCA through performance theater to be gentle to life on earth and the oceans and to stop using so many plastic disposable bottles and plastic bags. I wrote a short script for a puppet show and I got my inspiration from the Dutch book “Stella and Stinky and the plastic soup” by Christine Algera. #dopperbottle #plasticbridgeproject #cleanwater #savetheearth #savetheoceans #noplastic #childrenstheatre #performing #tklokhuis #artistslife #environment
On to my #nextadventure. I’m so excited to be working with Jack Feldstein on this!
