I know, weird title. Lemme explain.
Firstly, in my last post, I hinted at another on-camera job that I’d booked with Millie Lewis, so let’s get right into that. The client was Southern Wood Floors, in Augusta, SC. Driving through the stunning-even-in-winter South Carolina countryside on a warmer than usual January morning was such treat! I live in a truly gorgeous part of the country. I went through this tree tunnel and thought only at the last minute to snap a photo. I apologize for how underwhelming it is–this was right at the end! (And I may have been having a tiny moral debate with myself over snapping photos while driving. 😬)
It was lovely in person, even with all the trees dead and leafless. I was imagining how lush and magnificent it must be in the summertime. Hence, the photo on the right. It brought to mind this article I recently stumbled upon about the numerous tree tunnels our state boasts. I’m thinking a Tree Tunnel Tour is definitely in order. Check it out!
Serious rabbit trail there. (But worth it…who doesn’t love tree tunnels?)
I met up with the fine folks from Atomic Studios in Augusta, and we cranked that baby out in about 25 minutes. I was grateful to have such a professional and efficient crew. I have to admit to being a bit nervous. Acting in stories where there are characters and story driven lines seems different to me, and somehow much easier to put myself into. The way we so often do with new and scary things, I worried–worried about not being believable, about not knowing if there was different etiquette on a commercial set, about stumbling all over myself and forgetting the lines, you know, standard self sabotaging. But, like I said, 25 minutes, so I guess I did ok! 😊 Anyway, it was a great experience, and I can’t wait to do my next job. So before I get to the other part of this post, here’s the commercial:
Secondly, as eager as I am for another commercial job, it may be a while before I can take on any bookings because the rehearsal process is well underway for Into The Woods, with Centre Stage. I’ll be playing the part of Cinderella! We’ll be rehearsing every weeknight until the 14th of March when we open, so making out of town trips might be a little difficult. I’ll keep you posted if anything fun and quick comes up. In the meantime, just click, click, clicky on this link right here and you can grab up some tix for Into the Woods. I’m so grateful for the support of my local friends, family, and fellow actors. See you there!
In the meantime, stay tuned for updates on the show and other projects. If you’re interested in hearing more about how I can be of service to you with voice over work or on screen work, drop me a line–I’d love to chat!
