A direct quote from a director with whom I have worked, but we’ll get to that later.
Let’s start with some random minutia. This picture, taken by mistake, may be the most feminine photo I have ever taken. I just love it!
This was also the debut (although no one would know if it weren’t for the fact that I am telling you now) of my new eyebrows! My makeup skills just keep getting better and better. And I did not realize I put my necklace on backward until much later in the day, when I finally realized it. Oh well….
This wig may not be my absolute best look, but being the person wearing it, I have never worn one that I wasn’t aware was on my head. It is literally like it’s my own hair. When I assemble an outfit, I take into consideration which wig (therefore which look I wish to present) to wear. In situations where I will have less public interaction, this is a go to.
I wore one of the $1 dresses I picked up at my recent thrift store adventure. I felt cute and well put together and super comfortable in that dress for about ten hours.
Finally, in the minutiae category, I had consciously stopped looking for things to do and places to go and simply react to situations presenting themselves to me. Now I am seeking to cut back a bit as I have a full calendar for at least the next month and a half and have been burning the candle on both ends quite a bit of late. And none of this is because I am a night owl, but I am started to get a bit worn down. Plus I am looking at adding two additional revenue streams to supplement the one I currently have. Being self-employed, I don’t have a “job”, I have revenue streams.
Okay, back to August 13, 2022. I was invited by my director from the upcoming blockbuster “Calendar” to view his most recent (and first full length feature) “A Shattered Diamond” at The Indy Gathering, an independent film festival and networking opportunity. This film is currently running on Tubi, Amazon Prime and soon on Xumo.
A few days prior I saw that the festival was seeking volunteer help, so I signed on up! So I was basically the hostess for three blocks of films, starting the films on schedule and then introducing the following Q & A session. Doing this I met Bella. Bella is autistic and she stars in one of the shorts we screened. She is from LA. We chatted on and off over the course of a few hours. When I went to leave, Bella almost tackled me with a hug. I got to know her mother and some friends that were there as well. Here we all are in a few photos.
See, I don’t make this stuff up! Bella was an amazing actress. Her mother openly talked about her autism in the Q & A. You would have had no idea from her performance that she was autistic.
When I saw Nick, the director from A Shattered Diamond and Calendar, I told him to keep me in mind for future projects. He then told me it has been discussed. Apparently they discuss their extras and which ones they would like to feature in bigger roles in the future. Stay tuned here for any updates on my budding acting career!
