Well, time flies when you're having fun and I just realized that I haven't posted an update in a good long while. So here goes!
This past winter saw my busiest months yet in working with my agency and pursuing work on camera. In November, I found myself wandering the hills of Kentucky with a rag-tag group of frontiersmen for an upcoming TV show.
It was a fun ensemble with an amazing crew who successfully pulled off a complicated shoot that bounced between shooting on location, both in the mountains and actually on the Kentucky River, as well as in a gigantic green screen studio. The highlight for me was getting to cross paths with our Armorer, Steve Auvenshine, who was the Armorer for Peter Weir's 2003 film, Master & Commander. His eye for details and for crew safety was inspiring. My main takeaway from the experience is always to bring a knee brace when you're traipsing through the forrest. Maybe bring two.
I'm looking forward to being able to share more once the episode airs.
Then earlier this month, I was lucky enough to be on set for an upcoming Warner Bros film that shot in Southern Ohio. I was a day player just in for a single scene, but getting to work alongside artists who were household names before I was even born was a bizarre and wonderful experience.
Again, I look forward to sharing more info once I'm able to!
Other than that, I've been focusing on my commercial work. I have a few different spots currently running around the country and it's fun how many random people will reach out to say, “Hey, did I just see you in a Wayfair commercial!?” I enjoy being on commercial sets as they need to run like a well oiled machine in order to check all the boxes required by the client. Watching a crew that is able to efficiently communicate with each other what they need as a unit, is a great lesson in both both good practice and good communication.
That's all for now. More updates to come!
