Moving After Graduation
LA, HERE I COME! I've been accepted into the UTLA (University of Texas, Los Angeles) Summer Semester. This 11 week program is through the Moody College of Communication. After I walk the stage in May, I will road trip to the West (where I have never been before!) I'll be living with other students in apartments, doing internships, and taking business entertainment classes.
I would ideally like an internship on a set. I love the excitement and anticipation of a working set. There are so many moving parts and there is so many amazing things being produced these days. I can't watch a movie without being critical of the editing and details. Having worked on several student films and a few larger projects, I know there's a lot of work to be done on set and everyone contributes to the final project.
Wish me luck on my journey to Hollywood. I can't believe it's really happening!
Oh, for the Melancholy Tilly!
This past weekend I acted in a a production I could not be more proud of. Melancholy Play by Sarah Ruhl is the tale of Tilly. Tilly is sad and beautiful. Joan (me), Frances, Frank, and Lorenzo all fall hopelessly in love with Tilly. My girlfriend, Frances, gets so sad that she turns into an almond. Together we must bring Frances back to human form.
This play was so weird, so beautiful, so minimal, so creative, and so meaningful to me personally. A cellist accompanied the show. Joan was so complex and fun to be. It was refreshing to act in something so well directed, with talented actors, and a lovely script. 10/10 acting experience.
I can't wait to be a part of something this special again.
