We miss mommy

Debbie's grandmother passed away and she is there for the funeral this weekend. She almost didn't go, but I rather compulsively bought her a ticket at the last minute. It's good that she's there. She gets back tomorrow, so I only have a few more hours of single parenthood.
Still Going

I picked up a little job this week shooting a trailer for a mobster movie. It pays very little, but its only a few hours and I get copy/credit plus a guarentee to audition if it gets picked up by a major studio.

Tomorrow I shoot my new headshots with the new haircut.

I guess the biggest news is that I was offered a nonspeaking part on Miss Congeneality 2 which would have made me SAG eligible. I couldn't make it work with my schedule at such short notice, but it was an exciting call none the less.

In the Can

The commercials are in the can as they say. The Mandalay shoot was a 3:30 am call, so needless to say I was a little tired yesterday. I got a callback tonight for an indy film that i auditioned for. It's a $2 million picture, which isn't big or anything, but more than some guy with a camcorder. I'll know more about it after my reading Saturday.

Wayne Jacobson is spending the weekend with us Apex folks. He is really good for us. I missed half of the discussion yesterday due to a commercial gig, but it was great to be there in the afternoon. Life on the journey means learning to live loved by Father, growing in trusting Him, experiencing the freedom of his love, being a family with each other and sharing the love we know. I can do that. I like a faith like that.

Whenever I am with Wayne I leave wanting to believe in the God he believes in. I have been risking life with that sort of Father for a few months now. It has been rewarding and challanging...challanging to let go of the God I thought I knew and receive a Father who loves me.

It's left me often at a loss for words and a loss for actions. To live my life and be loved is enough these days. Father is changing me.
Captain Commercial

This week I was cast in a debt consilidation commercial, which will run in several markets nationally. It's rather high on the cheese factor, but what are you gonna do? I am also doing a commercial for Mandalay Bay that will run in west coast markets. There are no speaking parts, I'm pretty sure that I will be playing craps.

All told, we should rake in about $1k for the two shoots...not bad.

Oh yeah...I had to cut my hair for the shoots. My agent and both casting directors assured me that I will get more work with this look. I like it...I was getting tired of the long hair anyway. It does mean that I have to get new headshots asap...which will eat up about 20% of the aforementioned profits...such is The Biz.

Its been a stretch of auditions with no luck, but my agent just called to let me know that I got a part in a commercial. I have no idea about the details yet. I am glad to get something with Cody. All of my other work I've gotten on my own.

Still Going...

It's gonna be hard to make a living acting. There I said it. I'm having pretty good luck, but its so inconsistent. I want to be SAG eligible by the end of the year so that I can audition more in LA. It's also hard to set goals...but there I just set one.

Easter 2004

The life lived without courage is not the resurrected life.

I'm still alive

I've had a really busy week. I picked up a side job doing some extra work for a TV show on top of my nightly stuff. I'm sleepy.

It looks as though the Hawaii trip will likely happen in June instead of April/May. Thanks to all of you who have been helping us figure it out.
