It’s almost October which means in one month, i’m no longer an LA newbie-i’ll have lived here for an entire YEAR!! Crazy.
I can’t say this year has been easy, because it hasn’t…it’s been flippen HARD. But it’s been totally worth it. Booking jobs and working days on set remind me why i’m here and my love for acting. I recently filmed the music video ‘Nintendo’ for singer/songwriter Todd Carey and it was a BLAST. Praise God for that! So thankful!! That’s what I love to do! Not only was it a ton of fun but it was a huge breath of fresh air. One of the hardest parts of being an actor is………waiting………………….forever……………………..for your next job.
It’s ridiculous. But man do you develop stamina! And when you finally book your next job it’s amazing how refreshing it is.
When I moved out here almost a year ago I began a relentless pursuit to find acting roles, a manager, an agent, opportunities ETC. It’s a year later and i’m in an even more intense pursuit. For starters, i’m without an agent OR manager, as I terminated my agent contract and let go of my manager. I don’t regret it; it needed to be done for undisclosed reasons, but here I am back at square one! Searching for representation is stressful and you definitely have to be ok with rejection. Which, I am. Try and reject me TRY!!! I dare you. I will smile, knowing that i’m at least working towards my dream. No rejections=lazy. Unless of course you’re only getting acceptance responses. In that case……awesome. good job. yay you. Haha just kidding, that’s actually great!
If you’re an actor; don’t give up. Go ALL IN. It takes everything you have, everything/everyONE you know, be RESOURCEFUL, do your research. And trust God, with everything, always.
Stay searching for the video release of ‘Nintendo’ by Todd Carey!! Music video will be out SOON! And you can buy his song on iTunes now. So, go get it. Now.
