The Sadle

After a long dry spell I had a commercial audition today. It was with Kathy Knowles for Prilosec as a NASCAR fan. With the dust wiped off me I went in & did just fine. It's good to be back now on to the next one!

Toofy Beast

Netherbeast Incorporated is on its way to the Toofy Film festival and your's truly will be there!



Thats right all my Colorado Hombr├ęs, I'll be inviting you to the show and sleeping on your couch in no time! This fest is kind of a big deal for the Ronalds Brothers, coming back to the old stomping grounds and premiering Saturday night in the Boulder Theater. Pretty cool deal for me too as I got started with acting in Denver/Boulder, studying alongside Dean in Bill Howey's class (yes, he's here in LA now & I am back in his quite excellent class) and performing Improv with Headgames™ in the West End Tavern's basement just down the street.

Dead guy

So I had my 1st audition through the new manager today. It was at Lieberman Patton casting for the new show "Pushing Daises". I was playing a dead guy who comes back to life with a touch from the lead character (the premise of the show). It seemed to go alright, we did it once, got a redirect & fired it off again with changes. I've been to this office half a dozen times in the last two years, a booking is imminent!

A few days ago I was thinking about the dry spell thats been happening. I'm somewhat used to it theatrically (that's one thing this new Mgr. is meant to change... ok the main thing) but commercially it's a bit unusual. So after a little slight self indulgent actor moping I got into action & put together a bunch of mailers to send out & waltzed them down to the little Korean post office around the corner. I always feel good walking back from that little post office, knowing that my face will be on a few more desks around town in no time.

And when I got back there was this new type of email waiting for me, from my Manager, asking if I can make this audition. Why yes I can, thank you.

12 of 12 August 07

The 12 of 12 is a fun project started by a guy named Chad (click link) that I try to do every month. It always seems to sneak up on me. This is my first month with the new Pearl!

11:50 am - Jeff & Margo pose at breakfast with no flash. Let's try another in the same spot:


11:55 am - Jeff and Megan model for the first flash photo with the Pearl (how cool) Look, no silhouette!


1:32 pm - The kitchen looking slightly clearer than previous pics. Somewhat fuzzy. Light? Shaking hand?


2:00 pm - My new super-ergo-fake Aeron chair from Staples. It was a great geek week.


3:00 pm - BONUS PIC - "Light" was the word . This was an accidental straight shot into the sun while trying to capture an awesomely odd Hollywood type. (edit: I'll need to experiment with the light settings I see now...hope they're there)


6:15 pm - I arrived at Barnsdall park early to be greeted with a great parking spot & a fine view.


6:40 pm - Why an I here? For Independent Shakespeare Company's production of Macbeth, of course.


6:50 pm - I enjoy contrast...and didn't try for a better angle.


7:05 pm - Matt & Caroline enjoy a little Bard.


7:10 pm - As a matter of fact, we're all going back next week to see Richard II. Click for awesome Variety review.


7:40 pm - Looking up into the risers. Show's about to start!


8:10 pm - And there's the pal who I came to see, Frances Uku with McBeth himself, David Melville. They both did a killer job. Seriously, check it out. (I tried the zoom feature on this pic, works great but with poor resolution %)



9:40 pm - Playing with the flash at intermission with Matt. I deleted the one with no shakey-hand-while-pushing-button syndrome.

Quake

Just felt one here in K-Town, lasted 5 seconds or so, fairly mellow...so far.

Image snagged from Bon... who posted 6 minutes after I did : )
