September started out with the Rags of acting, nothing on the books! It was the first time in 15 months I found myself without a theater or film booking of some sort. So what did I do? I went back to school. I started the class The Shoot at The Green Room Studios (my first class there). From the studio's description this class is: "Work with award winning indie film director Alex Thompson as you produce and perform in a short film. This class will work together on multiple short films as they learn all the steps of producing and performing in their own work, while collaborating with professional cinematographers and sound engineers to turn out quality work worthy of the festival circuit." The Shoot
Then just a week ago, Shattered Globe Theater contacting me as asked me to understudy again. This time is the the show The Heavens are Hung in Black, and the show had already opened! On one had I was thrilled to be asked back, on the other, I have a lot of work ahead of me to learn all the lines..... just in case I am needed.
And finally I also booked a lead in a student that is shooting this coming weekend (10/7 & 8). So in 2 short weeks I went from nothing (Rags) to 2 shorts and a play (Riches). It is amazing how these things happen.
The moral of the story is never stop moving. You may think you are moving backwards, but at least you are not standing still watching the world pass you by.
