A Good Day

I had a great acting day. I had to go in and do voice recording on a short film I acted in. I'm slowly getting use to seeing myself on camera. Actors are notorious for not being able to watch themselves. I'm no exception. There is one scene where I looked really huge on camera. My clothes were ill fitting. This was a no budget film, I seriously needed a dresser. Anyway, the acting is decent. I'm happy with the result. It is true the camera adds 10 to 15 pounds to you. I'm in the process of releasing more weight. I ideally like to be a size 12. That's where I'm shooting for. I'm a size 16, working down to size 14.

I just got a copy of a short film I did last year in the mail on Tuesday. Once I get this film in December. I'm going to with the magic of windows media maker make a reel for myself. A reel is basically a showcase for an actor. So directors, casting, agents and producers can see what you act and look like on film. Once I finish the reel, I'll put it up on Swanofdreamers.

My director, Suchi, is from India. She came here to study directing at New York Film Academy. Sushi said she love to work with me again. Would I consider to come to India to work in Bollywood on a film, if she called me? I was like yes!! You call me and I'll go. Bollywood is the nickname of the Indian Film Industry. They make more movies out in India than here in the U.S. I was really honored she asked me that. Gave me a good feeling. It would be such an adventure. I'll see what comes.

Wouldn't that be a grand adventure! Have you ever seen the movie The Guru? It's a very sweet sleeper film that pokes good fun at Bollywood. It's one of the movies that, if I'm flipping channels and I stumble upon it, I always end up watching the rest of it.
