Finally booked an AFI gig!

Sunday, October 16th, 2016

I haven’t had much going on this year acting-wise because I honestly haven’t been pushing hard for it. Obviously the first half of the year I was out of commission mentally, and now I’m obsessed with producing my short film, so I have way less time to focus on it.

I am still in the SAG conservatory, so every so often I get an audition at AFI. I’ve been wanting to book one for a long time. It’s one of the schools with a great reputation here in LA and I’ve worked with most of the others. So AFI has always been like my student film white whale.

I’m also excited about the role because it’s a really layered character. She’s trying to hold it together while her life falls apart. It’s going to be really fun to play with the ups and downs in it.

On a related note, I always want to get more experience at AFI because I’m hoping to submit to the AFI Women’s directing workshop they do each year. I know 2 women who have done it and it was a really great experience.
