Life Updates

Paid Projects that I've done since the new year started:

Print work for a Japanese textbook company
A fashion show for a new designer
Photoshoot for a visiting photographer
Stock photoshoot
Music video
A bundle of extra work
And I'm currently working on a movie trailer.

I also did my first trade shoot with a photographer in ages and photos from that shoot should be coming soon.

Obviously I'm still working promotions, but at least getting a bit closer to the goal of making money primarily from what I want to be doing.

My late New Year's Post

Wrote this post on the 5th while flying back to NYC. Life's been too crazy for me to get around to posting it. Anyway, here it is now.

I’m not a big fan of New Year’s resolutions. You don’t need to wait for a new year to come around to decide that your life needs to be changed. Every day is a new day. There is never any need to wait until a certain day to decide to diet or clean or exercise or put your dreams on paper. That being said, this year I’ve strangely decided to actually go the resolution route.
• 2012 is going to be my make it or break it year. If I don’t see myself booking acting / modeling jobs enough to justify living in NYC, then I don’t think I’m going to continue chasing down that dream in 2013.
• I’m going to get myself organized. Not so much to the extent that I’m going to let calendars and routines overrule my crazy schedule filled with last minute bookings and twelve hour work days, but to the point that I won’t let myself waste time on stressful situations that cannot be helped by my constant worry. If a task needs to be completed, then I have no reason to sit around fretting over a situation that I cannot control instead of completing said task. This is not to say that I will put more value on doing laundry than getting coffee with a friend, but simply that I will not let negative assumptions or sore feelings take up any of my time. Every moment in life is valuable; I don’t want to see any more time get wasted on things that I cannot change.
• I’m going to try to write out a list of what I need to get done for the next day every night or at least the morning of before I start out my day. This is one of those ones that I kind of doubt I’ll be able to keep during periods where I’m booking a lot of work, yet, even if I can implement this one every other week I think it would do a lot for my life.
My apologies for this sounding more like a science report than a blog post, but my mood at the moment is far too introspective and analytical for anything more creative or light to get typed up by my fingers.
I hope that everyone has a wonderful 2012

I'm too busy setting up a more professional website to properly update this page, but here's my first attempt at making a reel. More updates soon to come...

Life Updates!!!!!

I've totally been neglecting this blog lately....

So I believe I left off that I was doing a short film in May and here's the movie poster from that:

I also ended up having a walk on role for a pilot for a new Bravo dating show in June. More details to come if it ends up airing.

Also in June I did another test shoot for AUBE Cosmetics:

And then I ended up getting a gig as a model for a photography class in June as well:

Then in July I did a product testimonial for Carol's Daughter for HSN.

Outside of all that I've been booking promotions like crazy. That and I did a bit of extra work on I Just Want My Pants Back, Blue Bloods, and Smash.

I'm also trying to put together a legit website too, but until then I will be posting more frequent updates on this.

I think I'm awake again....

So it all started Friday morning. If you want to call 5:40 AM morning. :/ I got a lovely phone call from my mother to get up and watch the royal wedding and went on ahead and watched since I couldn't get back to sleep after that.

My thoughts on the wedding:

The dress was okay. I'm also not getting the Grace Kelly comparisons here. Yes, Kate Middleton is very pretty, but her dress was nowhere near as pretty as Grace Kelly's.

Here are the two dresses:

Although I'm not the biggest fan of Grace Kelly's dress, I think that it's as good as you can get if you want an overly formal sleeved dress. Kate Middleton's on the other hand had a bad attempt at being modern and I couldn't help but think her wedding veil looked like a funeral shroud. Not that I hated Kate Middleton's dress, but it was nothing that should be compared to Grace Kelly's which was far more lovely.

Anyway, after the wedding I was doing a stock photoshoot. What I thought would be a quick simple photoshoot turned into my craziest day on any set. In the middle of the shoot one of the models says she feels faint and sits down and passes out. She then has a seizure and everyone ran around trying to find out if she had a bracelet or card saying she was an epileptic or diabetic. Nothing was found and when she woke up she said it was normal and happens all the time and that it was all blood pressure related and that she just needed to eat. We all waited around for an ambulance and when they came, they said that she definitely needed to go to the hospital even if she had the condition she claimed she had and she threw a tantrum over only needing food and that it was normal and she wasn't like her epileptic brother who wasn't allowed to drive a car. Since she kept making the claim that she only needed to eat, the photographer offered to get her food which she was reluctant to take and when she finally agreed to take it, said she would eat in the taxi. The crew eventually talked her into eating there, and she ate a few small bites and put it in her bag and said she ate half of it. The photographer actually asked her to show him if she ate any of it and got upset over her not eating after denying medical care after she said it was all blood pressure (which the medics agreed was really low). Also, for anyone wondering if this is a case of lack of insurance, someone found her medical card when they were looking for something about her condition while on the phone with EMS. She then proceeded to take a train to Long Island for an UNPAID charity fashion show. Let me also point out that this girl was 23 and clearly not the right type for runway modeling. So she risked her life for what was essentially a waste of her time. Basically I felt like I was in a bizarre reality show, because you would think a scenario like that could only be staged.

After that the shoot when on a little longer and then I stupidly made the choice to go out after that. So the next morning when I had to get up at 6:00 AM for a legit reason like working at 7:00 AM I was completely drained. I ended up doing a promotion during the Womentum walk for cancer research. The job was pretty cool and I got to see Jessica Alba make a bad attempt at reading a teleprompter. Love her as an actress but they probably should have made sure she knew how to use a teleprompter before the event so she wouldn't have had to spend most of her speech with her eyes looking away from the camera.

After getting off at 1PM I managed to stay up for a few more hours until I eventually crashed. Woke up at 6AM again (this time not half asleep) and have for the most part had a pretty relaxing day - finally.

Also, I just recently booked a lead role in a short film. I'll be shooting most of this week.
