A Long Overdue Update…

6 Feb

These past few weeks since my last post have been filled with mild panic, sleep deprivation, plenty of work, and some occasional fun.

So what exactly have I been up to this month?

Well…

I am now working on several film projects as a make-up artist, one a feature, and another a short.
Also, a couple weeks ago, I worked on a trailer for a film at a location I had worked at before out in Des Moines, Washington.

I’ve also done a little more modeling, as well as some acting: this is all on top of my homework of ┬ámuch designing, writing, and sketching for school.

Yes, things have been rather busy lately, but that’s how I like it.

I think I’ll be keeping this post short tonight.

However, keep an eye out this next week for some more updates, photos, and videos from my recent projects!

For now, here’s a little teaser…

My friend Sean and I had ourselves a mini shoot a few weeks ago for his online magazine project Peer Pressure.
The next issue comes out this Valentines, so keep your eyes peeled!

New Years Resolutions

3 Jan

Here’s a video blog from me today!
I know I haven’t posted a video in a while, so this is for those especially that like to watch my (albeit boring) videos.

A few updates on my recent projects, as well as some of my New Years Resolutions.

Enjoy.

P.S. More photos from recent projects will be coming soon!

Vlogcast 8 – Photoshoots Galore

Here’s something we haven’t seen in a while… more of me… talking to a screen!

Buzzing.

Oh, what a day I’ve had.

Driving in Seattle, Production Meetings, Encounters with Talent.

I had recieved this e-mail last night from my School, Logan Neitzel from this current season’s Project Runway (also an Art Institute of Seattle Alum) is having an Estate sale, selling fabrics, notions, and other goods, because he will be moving to New York for a fresh start.

So, of course, I decide to check it out.

After heading out of the Teething production meeting and running some errands, I head over to the sale with my friend, Sean.

Lo and Behold, Logan is standing there at his loft; he greets me and we begin to talk about my current short film project, Teething. He was nicer than I could have ever imagined. It was a breath of fresh air to meet someone so talented, yet so down to earth. On top of that, so generous!

After talking with Logan and his friend Tanya some more, and picking out the fabrics I liked, I reached for my wallet to pay for them.

Logan politely told me I didn’t owe him anything, and that I could just have it all.

I was ecstatic, to say the least.

I guess my only regret would be not taking more! Haha.

Anyhow, I’m rather jazzed, and I’m very glad that I decided to go. I have a lot of work to do in the next few weeks…

It was such a pleasure meeting Logan, although it felt so surreal, and I hope that our paths will cross again in the future so I can pick his brain some more.

That’s it for tonight.
See ya’ll later.

5 Sep
I’m still trying to recover from this past week, and also prep for the weeks and months to come.

So many projects to think about, so little time.
Here’s the breakdown of everything I have going on right now:

+ 2 Short Films – Costumes & Make-up – One shooting next week, another next month.
+ 1 Play – Costumes/Make-up & Musical Directing – Opens in November
+ Magazine Project with Sean
+ School Starts Next Month
+ Working on Screenplay(s)
+ New Band with Hannah
+ Anything else that strikes my fancy.

You’re probably thinking, girl, you crazy. Whachu thinkin’?!
I guess you can blame the Gemini in me, but what would really drive me crazy is if I didn’t have anything to do.

I do have a history of overloading myself, but I just like the excitment, the sleepless nights, the overall rush.

Wrapping up $5 Cover this past week was sad; so many new friends made in such a short amount of time. The wrap party was like the last “Hurrah”: absolute insanity, I tell you. I’m still reeling from it all, and I left early, I’m sure it got plenty more interesting after that too. Ah well, I guess that’s what it feels like to have responsibility. I did get to sing one karaoke song though with my friend Hannah, my wingman for the night, haha. Goodness, I hadn’t sang karaoke since I went back to Japan a couple years ago – my most recent trip being this past Spring. I’d say the wrap party topped that karaoke experience though. Man… what… singing? Dancing? Shenanigans? Good memories for sure. Saw a little sneak-peek of the finished product, which should be out sometime this Winter, I believe? You should be excited, ’cause I am. I’m sure you’ll get a glimpse of me on the screen too. Hehe. My MTV debut?

So Bumbershoot is this weekend – actually it started today.

I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go all three days, none of the entertainment really popped out to me. Then again, I didn’t go to Bumbershoot last year, I guess I could try to go either tomorrow or Monday. It’s not so much any one particular thing that makes Bumbershoot something I want to attend, it’s the entire experience. I am a bit strapped for cash though… yet, I really do want to go…the crowds, the people, sights, sounds, smells. You never know what can happen.

Today is my best friend Kendra’s Birthday, 18 I thought I’d give her a little shout out. I love that girl.

And tomorrow, I’ll be celebrating with my other good friend Katie, for her 19th birthday. Not quite sure what’s in store yet, but we’ll have to wait and see.

Maybe we’ll go to Canada, Katie likes Canada.

Probably not.
