The Little Short That Could

mood: thankful thankful

A year ago when a friend of mine got me involved in a little short horror film I had a good feeling about it. I couldn't pin-point why I felt so positively about this project but I kept hearing in the back of my mind "good things will come from this". Well, first up it screened at Fangoria Weekend of Horrors (which was awesome) but now it's going to screen at a theater!! Fangoria is having THE CAREGIVER screen before a feature length horror film at the Fine Arts Theater on Wilshire Blvd. tomorrow night at midnight!! I might miss this screening but I'm very excited about the event:

FANGORIA

Last year I had my first experience with Fangoria Weekend of Horrors. A friend of mine bought me a ticket as a "thank you" for allowing him and his sister to stay at my apartment. Anyway, I had a lot of fun and imagined if one day I would be speaking on a panel promoting one of my films. . .

Well, I got the next best thing this year: my short film, "The Caregiver" was selected to screen at their short film festival. Over hundreds of submissions from across the country and, according the the director, the acceptance letter stated it was one of the top 5! I went to support it and it had a decent turn-out.

Anyway, it was exciting to see something I worked on at an official screening! It might screen at the New York and Chicago Fangorias as well which would be pretty awesome! :)

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are. . .women.

I booked another acting gig and I am *very* excited for this one! Back story on it. . .

I had auditioned to play Ophelia for a modern film adaptation of Hamlet. Thinking I had a strong chance of booking the role I ended up not getting cast (but the director wanted to assure me that he though I had an excellent audition and would really like to work with me on future projects.) I usually don't get disappointed when I don't book a role but. . .I couldn't deny that I had my heart set on this one. C'est la vie.

Earlier this week I get a text message from the director telling me he has information on Hamlet I might be interested in. As you can tell by my title, the director's vision was to have Rosencrantz and Guildenstern be women. His Rosencrantz dropped out the project and he offered me the role!!

Filming has already started and I will be filming next week and in April. For now. . .I've got some lines to learn!!

How I Love. . .

The Five Love Languages

My primary love languages are probably
Physical Touch and Words of Affirmation.

Complete set of results

Physical Touch: 9
Words of Affirmation: 9
Quality Time: 6
Receiving Gifts: 3
Acts of Service: 2


Information

Unhappiness in relationships, according to Dr. Gary Chapman, is often due to the fact that we speak different love languages. Sometimes we don't understand our partner's requirements, or even our own. We all have a "love tank" that needs to be filled in order for us to express love to others, but there are different means by which our tank can be filled, and there are different ways that we can express love to others.

Tomorrow. . .

mood: thoughtful thoughtful

I am neither Democrat or Republican. I just take what's presented to me and I go with the choice that feels the best. Past elections I have put in votes that I wasn't sure about but I made a choice regardless.

Tomorrow is different for me. Tomorrow I am voting for Obama. And I have no regrets.

I am also voting No on Prop. 8. There is no reason to vote Yes. None.

Halloween 1978

music: The Rocky Horror Picture Show

So, I saw on udontknowi's lj about googling halloween and the year you were born and finding the best picture of costumes back in that year.

Well, (and I *surprisingly* didn't know this) the movie Halloween came out in 1978 so I was bombarded with pictures of Michael Meyers and posters of the film. But. . .I did find this costume picture from the year I was brought into this world. . .

Apparently, costumes in 1978 sucked.
