“A capital-I Issue…that’s more like a Z. A capital-Z Issue. Zissue.”
This ended up being a ton of work (my very first “edited” video! in that I clipped out a bit and had to stitch two videos together! poorly! and then I had to figure out how to convert it! look at me learning new things!) considering I look sickly and weird here. I wanted to get this done finally though! SO HERE IT IS!
Gosh you guys! I have been TERRIBLE over the past few weeks, have I not? I’m stealing a few minutes before bed tonight (well, when I should already be in bed, really) to update.
In short, here’s what I’ve been working on –
I ended up being called in for two more days of extra work on the same movie! Again, not really supposed to talk about it, but it’s definitely an enjoyable day’s work. I don’t know how much extra work I’ll end up doing, for lots of reasons. Maybe that’ll be the subject of my next vlog?
I had my first rehearsal for the Christmas show at the House of the Seven Gables a couple of weeks ago – I’ll be playing Beth March this time!
In non-performing-related-but-busyness-related news, I’ve also been attempting National Novel Writing Month, I started a new job!, and schoolwork has been piling up. Part of the reason I decided to do NaNoWriMo this year is that I am often better at managing my time when I’m a little overbooked (because I have to be!). Hopefully I’ll be able to do a vlog or monovlog again in the next week or so!
I also want to thank David-Matthew Barnes for stopping by my blog with some incredibly kind words. I am still a little bit beside myself!
Wow, it’s been a week and a half – ugh, and I was doing so well for a while there! I feel like I completely lost momentum over the past week. I even have a monologue or two all memorized that I could have recorded and uploaded by now. I’m more disappointed with myself than thinking anyone is out there waiting with bated breath, but still – I’m very sorry, you guys!
I was a bit busy last week, actually! Not busy enough that I couldn’t have kept on top of things, but still – pretty busy! The highlights (for this blog, anyway) were –
I spent Monday on a movie set, doing my very first movie extra work!! I’m not allowed to talk much about it (like, reveal the project name, or – I think – talk about who’s in it), but it’s a Hollywood feature film and my bum might be making its film debut whenever it is that they’re releasing the film! Hooray! (Plus, I got paid!)
Wednesday I had an audition in Boston at Emerson College for some of their student films/student film class. I’m really looking for ways that I can get footage for a reel and this looked like a great way to do that. It was an interesting experience, I’ve never auditioned for a camera before. It’s always a nice feeling to make the auditors laugh! It’s been over a week and I haven’t heard from them, so I’m left to assume I didn’t get any of the parts they were casting.
I narrowed down my song choices for the upcoming singing competition – either “If I Loved You” (from Carousel) or “Think of Me” (from Phantom of the Opera), I still haven’t quite decided yet.
Since I sort of lost momentum on finding new things to do last week, I didn’t have anything exciting lined up for this week. I’m poking around now, though, and I’ve found a couple of interesting-looking things to submit or audition for. Last week was a pretty draining week, emotionally, and next week is my first week at my new “real” job, so I’m trying very hard to keep my momentum going!
It looks like it’ll be a few more days til I get to record anything, too, unless I can wake myself up early enough tomorrow or Saturday to try and get my first monovlog* up, which I’ll definitely try to do!
*(Monovlog = monologue vlog (vlog = video blog!)!) (parentheses!!!)
I was hoping to have some good news within the next few days, and it turns out…I do!
I actually did make it into the top ten for the singing competition!!
I am so ridiculously thrilled, everyone!! :D I can’t even really express!
Of course, this means I need to pick a new song – and I need to get working on it! The benefit is November 9th, so I have plenty of time.
I have a few other things in the works right now (some of which I really actually can’t talk about rather than just me being paranoid), but I needed to let everyone know about this – I’m so excited, I can’t believe it!!!!
