Do you ever get that feeling about discovering something new that feels right and just makes freaking sense?
Thanks to my manager, I realized how valuable I am as a Spanish speaking actress.
He's sent me on many VO auditions and I realize, I LOVE doing voiceovers. Not only that, I'm realizing I have a voice, and a good one.
I can read really well and add character to such readings.
More so, when I think back, I loved reading aloud in class. I was proud I could read well and quickly. Funny thing is I still read quickly and I have to remind myself not to do so in an audition.
Anyhow, this is a lucrative part in the Entertainment industry. It pays really well and frankly you can 100% support yourself auditioning from home.
Aside from acting, I've been wanting to record myself singing jazzy tunes and really exploring that side of my voice.
I used to have a boyfriend who was a musician and I always wanted to sing with him but he got into film so kind of left the picture. Lo an behold, another example of you have to do things yourself if you want them done :)  Ok not 100% but still.

Fast forward to now, I have a new toy that will help me kill both birds with one stone.
I just started playing with the sound and getting used to it and I LOVE IT!!!!!!!
BAH!  I had to right a blog post about it.

Here's the beauty.
Can't wait to take an awesome jazzy looking picture with it further down the line.

Wish me luck!

Natural vs Unnatural acting

So I had a conversation with one of my Directors last night about my acting and how it was a little more difficult to edit bc every not every take of mine was the same and that, say with Michael, my co-star, his takes we're precisely choreographed and it was easier to edit. I told him every actor has his different method and I'm more of a natural actor. It's one thing if I'm given choreography for a scene (this entire scene was sitting at the dinner table) but if one take I'm caught up emotionally and I don't pick up the martini glass, I'm not going to stop the take bc of it. Maybe consistency within a take is something I need to work on but then why have the same take over and over? It doesn't allow options for edits right?

I've always been a fast reader...

I just stepped out of the biggest audition yet- McDonalds.
They switched the script on us and I had to memorize a new script in Spanish. Not a problem but of course it's a little nerve wrecking and thankfully there was a prompter there but I read too fast for the prompter and found myself waiting a few seconds between sections. Annoying.
But I gave it a lot of energy and personality which is what they were looking for. Keep me in your prayers!
