All month long I was a stand-in for the APTN show Cashing In. Yes, it’s the same show I worked on 3 years ago as Sue the Nurse. As an actor, I only see a portion of the film making process but while standing in for various actors, I see ten times more of that. The bloom was off the rose & I lived a whole month of it, 5 days a week throughout September. Film making fascinates me and this was very educational, more than any acting or film making school could teach me. We’ll see what the next month will bring.
Reblogging an interesting excerpt from James Devereaux…
A sort of companion piece to yesterday’s post.
Actors who have lost control of their fears damage the work of other actors and consequently that of the production itself. They are an obstacle to great work and a disease on the craft.
See y’all tonight!
|What a summer we’ve had! With it’s adventures and
shenanigans, miracles and mistakes, heat waves and mini-autumns. What force could breath all this in and exhale pure rarefied comedy? These four improv teams, that’s who.
Come cheer on your favourite teams, shame naughty players into wearing my old clothes, and patronize the tasty treats and libations of the Osborne Village Legion.

Finally, after bagging a role in April, 3am this passed Sunday was my call on set for my scene in StrIngs. So far, I’ve only had good experiences on the movie sets and this was no exception. The director, Daniel Duran, actors Lucas Till & Omar Khan were pleasant & easy to work with. Good thing I had a nap in my trailer.
I even had a nap-mare about doing a horrible job in my scene. Anyway, my day was brief, I participated in a group photo with the cast & crew, they had vegan lunch options and the film will premiere Spring May 2nd 2014. More info on IMDB.com
