Amidst the union turmoil in LA and the poor economy everywhere, it is harder than ever for actors new to town to get their break. To that end, I think my acting teacher, Paul, has the right idea that the best way to be (and feel) proactive is to get your own stuff going. This is easier said than done, but given advances in technology, it is still much easier now than even a decade ago. With cheaper high quality cameras and editing software, anyone can make a movie.
That being said, if you want to get noticed, some solid writing, directing, editing, acting, etc. go a long way. So, Gina and I came up with a story that we thought would be fun to work on and film as a series of short, 2-3 minute 'webisodes.' We convinced a few of our very talented friends to join as cast and crew and did some shooting of Seeing Butter last week. We hope to have the resulting webisodes ready to upload in a few weeks, so keep your eyes peeled!
