What a week it's been!
This past Monday I did a shoot with CAS Video Productions for an alcohol intervenion procedures (TiPS) DVD, which was great fun. I got the chance to catch up with some old friends and make some new ones.
I spent the middle portion of my week taking a break from acting and spending some time camping with my family.
On Friday I shot a short commercial for 720 Strategies in which the theme was people's "issues" with various things. I played a total weirdo; how can you go wrong when your wardrobe is "ideally... a straight jacket?"
Saturday I spent the majority of my day at Horrorfind Weekend at UMUC. While I was there I got to network with a few independent film companies and attended a great film auditioning seminar run by Joe Ripple of TimeWarp Films. I also checked out a screening of Fearmakers Studios' "Dismal," which was a pretty high-quality film! The actors had a Q&A after the screening and I had the chance to meet them earlier in the day to talk about acting in horror films.
With the free time I had in between all these events, I took the time to meet some of the celebrities, specifically Tom Savini, Patricia Quinn, Tony Todd, and Conrad Brooks. I asked each of them a bit about the film business and recieved some good nuggets of wisdom. All of them were really down-to-earth and seemed like they truly love what they do. :)
