When I dropped Physics as my major at UC Berkeley, I had to call and tell my dad. My father actually worked in the Lawrence Berkeley Lab in the Physics Department when I was a toddler and it was a hard call for me to make; not only was I telling him that I was dropping Physics, I was admitting that I was going to major in Theatre instead.
His response was: “Well, sweetie, there’s no better preparation for life.” And that is why my dad is awesome.
He flew from Miami to see my first play at Berkeley…and brought his posse. All of these gentlemen have known me since I was in diapers. And yes, I have braces.
My friend, Chris, had me test ride and review a motorcycle for his blog: ManJr. I could say a lot about the experience, but here it is in a nutshell: it was awesome, I learned a lot about myself (totally not kidding), and I want to do it again. Seriously. If you have a scooter rusting in your backyard and you want me to come over, ride it, and review it, I’m your girl.
This Saturday we filmed Good With Children! We had a great time, but we didn’t get many pictures. Below you can see our lovely DP and worker of magic, Andria Chamberlain, trying to decide if we should use the hood mount with direct sun. The verdict was no. 🙂
We can’t wait to show you the finished product! In the meantime, keep watching Horror Haiku on the Seraph Films channel!
We tested out a electronic cigarette for our Good With Children shoot next weekend. We can’t have the windows down because of the car mount for the camera and sound and regular cigarettes were creating a little too much “atmosphere,” if you will.
I still need to figure out how to hold the thing so I don’t look like a noob, but I have plenty of people to study over the next couple of days in my life.
Please check out the film and show them any love you can: share their campaign, send them a love note, or support them, if you can! It’s a really neat story about a chef who agrees to cook the last meal for a condemned death row inmate.
Soo…we have another Horror Haiku! I’m in this one and I have to say my character gets everything that’s coming to her; had she gotten rid of her VHS player years ago, she’d never be in the mess she’s in!
Nevertheless, I hope that you enjoy it! And if you would like to submit a haiku for us to film, please leave them in the comments on YouTube or you can leave them here and I’ll share them with the Seraph Films team.
I also got to see my friend’s too-cute-for-words daughter in Peter Pan and was reminded of how wonderful it is to get to be on stage at a young age and explore a character. “That’s right, Peter! We’ll never grow up!”
I’m sooo looking forward to 2013! There are lots of wonderful things on the horizon both professionally and personally that I’m really excited to share!
But first I wanted to reflect on 2012. Between Personal Finances, Much Ado About Nothing, The House, Among The Shadows, and 12th Night, things have been very busy! One of the very cool things that happened was that Indie Mogul featured The House, which garnered a lot of wonderful comments.
This one was my personal favorite: “my god, gave me a heart attack in 10 mins – good work!”
