Traveled half way across the country from Wisconsin to California so I could follow my dreams of becoming an actress. I'm documenting my adventures along with the struggles of the true Hollywood story of a no name girl trying to break into the filmmaking industry. I'm not going to sugar coat anything or lie about my experiences to make the journey sound better then what honestly is going on. I will be revealing the true reality, the success if any, and the heartache of what happens when trying to reach this one in a million dream. So come on this roller coaster with me and my dog Gizmo to see for yourself what it takes to make it, what it doesn't, or maybe you'll realize this dream could in fact be for you.

Commercial I was in Aired on TLC!

The commercial promo that i filmed a few weeks back aired last week on TLC (Past Blog on Commercial). The promo was for the show called "Surprise Homecoming" that will be airing on TLC. The show is about the months of separation and sacrifice families have had due to their loved ones going over seas for military services. The families find out that their loved ones will be coming home. Billy Ray Cyrus hosts the show. Here is the link to watch the promo. I'm in the beginning wearing a white dress and I play a young mom. I have a cute baby in my hands and a young son next to me.

Another Film "The Contract!"

Last week I got together with a friend of mine and we decided to create another short film! We are tired of waiting around for the phone to ring to let us know we have an audition, so instead of allowing other peoples power to control our destiny we have realized we should just create our own video projects! I think we are getting better at our shorts each time we finish one. Yes! There are still more things we need to improve on but that is where learning will come in and no one is born with knowing how to create outstanding films right off the bat! It's a working process.......

This film is called "The Contract" Katie Ryan plays the neighbor and wrote the short. I play the girl with a dog who comes over to the neighbors house because i am frantic something bad will happen to me which then means my dog Dazzle will be all alone. I want my neighbor to be the god mother of Dazzle, but I don't just stop there. I have a contract of pages of what she has to do for Dazzle!


This video was filmed by us and i was the editor. Just the two of us girls and my dog GIZMO!
Anything is possible as long as you put your mind to it!
Cause who knows: WHAT COMES NEXT...

Created my Second Short Film!

About a month ago it occurred to me it is time to create my own films to get myself noticed in the entertainment industry (Past Post on Creating My Own Films). Two weeks ago i created my first short film (Past Post on First Short Film) and now i have created another scene! Since the first video I felt that i learned so much and applied that knowledge to the second scene. After filming the second scene i realized much more on how I can improve the next videos that i can't wait to start on more projects! I hope you enjoy this short scene it follows the same story of Hollywood Living.  

This scene is called Beach Living and the characters are Sue and Steve. Steve and Sue met in acting classes and Sue starts venting about her sister Sally and how she wants to move back to Ohio. Steve catches Sue off guard and offers her to smoke pot to calm down and tries to convince her it's the perfect first time to start.

The same day of the filming of Beach Living the actor who plays Steve informed me he needed new headshots and I said I could take a few shots just so he can have something to use for now. I have a Canon t3i/600D camera and takes great pictures and video. If anyone is interested in getting new pictures done please let me know because I'd love to do some test shots to get better at taking headshots!
