I’ll be working on a feature-length film shooting in Cincinnati in August. It’s called Blue, about a young woman trying to rebuild her life after a failed suicide attempt. The shooting schedule is remarkably aggressive: a full feature shoot in 12 days!
I’m going to play a tremendously unhelpful receptionist at an unemployment office who doesn’t actually care about anyone else’s employment. It’s going to be GREAT.
I managed to get the role even though my audition tape was framed like this:
I’m proud of this achievement and now have three different short scripts I hope to produce in and around Columbus, OH over the next year. Which is a whole new level of “insane voluntary undertakings that will shorten my life”.
P.S. If you like just HAVE a bunch of extra cash and want to patronize the arts or something, maybe let me know…
Yesterday, I attended the premiere of Finding St. Isabel. The theater was packed and the audience definitely seemed to enjoy the hard work that dozens of talented crew members put into making this film happen. A few lazy actors contributed as well…
Here’s one, on the right:
Forgive the terrible lighting. We are both actually very cute.
Also pictured on the left is director Nikki Rodriguez, who sacrificed a lot of sleep to bring Suzanne Rivecca’s short story “Look, Ma, I’m Breathing” to vibrant life.
I couldn’t be happier to have been a part of this project. Now, Nikki and her crew are submitting the film to festivals around the country. So excited to see how Finding St. Isabel makes its way through the world!
I’m working on a film right now called Finding St. Isabel. My character is an author who has a love-hate relationship with not only her lapsed Catholic faith, but also the book she wrote about her experience.
Here’s the cover:
Overnight bookstore shoot totally worth my distorted sense of time and date today. I am very excited to see this film come together!
