Wow, has it seriously been 4 months since I’ve blogged here? Ooops. Can I chalk it up to being busy? *laughs*
I’ve been back and forth to Toronto and other places lots lately… though, I’m pretty excited that my next project will be taking place here in Waterloo. To give you a brief recap of the last few months, September/October saw me performing as Mrs. Vixen in The Beggar’s Opera. The cast was phenomenal to work with, and I couldn’tve been happier to jump in last minute.
I also attended the premiere of Shimea, a martial arts fantasy film shot last year where I played an evil, manipulative shapeshifter. We had an excellent turnout for the screening, and it was great to see the final version, and catch up with fellow actors who I hadn’t seen since the readthrough.
Mid-October, I was in London to shoot The Witching Hour. There were a couple of long, intense days of shooting, but I am ridiculously excited to see the final product. And I can guarantee you that it will be scary as hell. You’d better bring a spare pair of socks when you see it, because it will scare yours off of you.
Towards the end of October/early November, I was in Toronto performing in Sex, Relationships, and Sometimes Love. With my already-hectic month, I came in as a performer part way through the run, and am very glad that I had the opportunity to work with the amazing cast and crew. I can’t confirm any detail for sure yet, but I can say that I would be happy to see a reunion tour. *grin*
As you might’ve seen on the main page of my site, I’ve been working on a couple of spec commercials throughout November, as well as doing a photoshoot with my dear friend Alex. Outside of that, I also directed and edited (yes, I was behind the camera!) a few short segments set in ancient Rome… it was my first time in almost a year where I played DOP (director of photography), but I’m happy with the way the first version has come out. Now, I just need to tweak a few things, add some sound effects, put in the appropriate credits, and that project will be off my plate til the spring, when we film more.
Lastly, I hate to count chickens before they’re hatched… but I’ve submitted the first film I directed, complex, to a local film festival. So hopefully it will get accepted! I’ve also got a couple of other potential-type prospects coming up… but I always irrationally fear jinxing things by talking about them too much, so I’m going to leave off here for now, with a vow to update this blog again within a month or less!
In the meantime, happy holidays to you all!
