It's Been A Little While

Well, it's been a long time since I updated my blog. I was trying very hard to stay up on my posting but it's been hard. So to cut to the chase, here's what's been going on:

1. I'm still working out my legal issues and will have a new update after June 4th. 

2. I had my workshop performance on the 26th of April and it went very well. We all had a wonderful time and I'm so proud of the work that we did. I'm on the hunt for my next acting class. I want to do the apprenticeship program at The Barrow Group Theatre. This theatre is HIGHLY respected in the business and the training is wonderful. Under the apprenticeship program I will be able to take a free weekly acting class in exchange for 8 hours of work at the box office. With money being tight, this will be a great way to save and still get great training, I just don't know where I'm going to find an extra 8 hours per week to work there. I'll have to figure something out.

3. I'm meeting with two headshot photographers this week. The first is Laura Rose, who is very popular and the second is Karol DuClos who my good friend recently worked with. I'm practically dying to shoot with Laura because she is fantastic (and you will see that if you click the link) but she is VERY expensive at $750 for the shoot, $150 for makeup, and $150+ for retouching and prints. Karol is offering half price right now ($375) and I love the headshots that she did for my friend. Not to mention she also has a great portfolio. I will keep you all posted on who I choose to shoot with and I will post my new headshots soon.

I'm in desperate need of new headshots and comp cards. My current ones just aren't cutting it. With it being so slow in the business right now, I need to have the absolute best photos possible to set me apart from everyone else. I'm going to be going to ModernAge (a digital services company) tomorrow afternoon to set up and order new comp cards. It's going to cost me $165 for 100 prints. I may wait until next week just because I'm supposed to be doing a beauty shoot this week and if the photos turn out great, I'd like to put one on my card. I'm getting back into acting and I need a wonderful headshot that will get me called into the casting director's office. The headshot that I have right now is...okay. The number one critique that I get on my headshots is that I'm so much more beautiful in person, the photo doesn't do me justice. I think the photo is beautiful, but sometimes, it's very important to be objective when choosing a headshot. 

Anyway, I will let blog about my meetings in the next few days.
