March was truly a blessed time for me! Here are the big updates.
1) I was cast for a print ad for Brunswick, which I had to travel down to Chicago for. A lot of fellow Michigan actors/actresses were cast as well, including my friend, My-Ishia. We definitely held our own on the shoot, along with the Charlie’s Talent Agency talent from Chicago. We had to do many different setups over two days in the Brunswick Zone XL in Algonquin, IL.
2) I auditioned for Salvation Boulevard through Pound-Mooney, and subsequently got a callback (with the director, George Ratliff) and then cast! I am proud to announce that I will be playing Alisa, a grad student, in 2 scenes opposite the very wonderful and talented Pierce Brosnan! (JAMES BOND!!!!) Also starring in this comedy thriller by Larry Beinhart are Ed Harris, Jim Gaffigan, Greg Kinnear, Jennifer Connelly, and Marisa Tomei.
3) Voice acting is another field I’d like to add to my acting resume, and I have just received the chance to build on that dream. I was cruising through Craigslist the other night and saw a posting for voice acting auditions for a CG-animated sci-fi feature called The Phoenix Armageddon. I dropped by the audition, and the next day, got the call that they wanted me for one of the leads! It’s a local, indie project, so there may not be pay involved, but I’d love to add it to my repertoire regardless. We have our first cast meeting tonight! I’ll be running over to Detroit for that in between being on set for…(leadup to #4)
4) I am the makeup/hair assistant to the lovely and talented Andrea Syron on the feature film Sucker, starring Michael Manasseri and Jordan Trovillion. Today, we get to do some sfx makeup. Or at least Andrea does, and I hope I get to help! Puncture wounds!
In other news, Qing Lou Nu has been submitted to many festivals with the wonderful help of some very generous friends. Now we just have to wait with fingers crossed…
Red Dawn‘s premiere is slated for Wednesday, November 24th, 2010, Thanksgiving Weekend! Look for my giggle/scream scenes in that!
