Congratulations, Craig!

Sunday, August 24th, 2008

Craig’s entry won in The Experimental Witch contest, so his chapter will be part of the feature. Not bad for his first directing gig. Just an international competition with hundreds of submissions.

It will be several months before the whole thing is finished and released. I’m sure it will screen in LA when complete. Hooray!

Witch of Portobello Update

Sunday, August 17th, 2008

Craig’s entry for the Witch of Portobello film contest was shortlisted and moved on to the final judging. He showed it to us a few weeks ago and I think he has a really good shot to win. We will hopefully know in the next two weeks. I played a very frumpy, drab, pathetic colleague of Athena. It was really fun doing that character work.

The Echo Game

Sunday, August 17th, 2008

Last night I was on set for The Echo Game, an independent horror feature. I played Leslie, a coworker of one of the leads. It was awesome because I got to use my rad, punk rock clip-on hair extensions. It’s always fun to break those out. I used pink, crimson and blue. We were shooting at Dapper Cadaver, a gore prop shop. I don’t get to be killed or anything like that, but at least I got to dress up. I think we have another exterior shot to do later but that isn’t scheduled yet. I like to pretend that my character was killed off screen and we never find out. I really love making horror films, even though I hardly watch them because I’m a scarey cat.

Goodbye Cruel World

Monday, August 4th, 2008

Friday I auditioned for the lead in this indie film. I did not get the lead but they did call me in to play a smaller role on Sunday. It was a lot of fun. I got to be the narrator for a Wrestling DVD that will be part of a scene near the beginning. It was great because I actually watch wrestling. I was also a news anchor in a brief flashback later.
I met a pair from Arkansas and we shared delightfully scary stories of life in Los Angeles. I also ran into Kristen, who had done makeup on Hollywood Femalé, and who we me through John, our stellar 1st AD on that project. Small world! I love it.

What I’ve read of the script so far is very funny and dark. I’m very excited to see it finished and I’m glad I got to be a part of it for a day.
