On my way back home after posting my last Vlog... I found out that the traffic I was in was because of the I-85 freeway which caught on fire causing part of it to collapse. That is NOT happening this week. Instead, some good news and tips. Watch below...
Marie's Acting Journey 2017 | Wk. 12
1. What did I learn this week in my craft?
I'm back to reading a book I got back in college at USC, Writing Short Films. Now I we are developing a webseries and not a short film, but the tips are still helpful. As an actress, I realize I already have lots of experience in script structure not just from my study in school but from so many auditions, tearing apart the scene and understanding the role of my character and the timing and place they play in the story. Check out the book for more tips.
2. What am I currently working on?
Last Saturday I did a photoshoot for a commercial I did a couple weeks ago, and the kids were so talented and funny! I mean with stage names like Kartwheel Kouri and King Ezekiel, how can they not be? But I also got to stop by my agency Atlanta Models and Talent and say thank you for the time we have worked together. It's been a little over 4 years. I remember my first audition back on March 23, 2013 for Army Wives. Wow, time has changed!
3. What was my "faith" lesson this week?
Speaking of saying thank you, that brings me to my next point. Gratitude builds faith! When I focus on the things that I can say thank you for- the specific things- it gives me the right perspective to keep persevering. And seeing people's appreciation of my gratitude makes me want to continue shining!
