Broken

Here's the beginnings of the short film I was honored to have a part of, directed by Gentry Austin. It was a change for me, working with film instead of theatre. I'm use to performing on stage and having only one shot to get it right, but this time was different. It wasn't only about me and how I felt in that scene....the lighting had to be right, the props in place, the other actors/actresses had to be on cue and finally the Director had to be pleased. It was an emotionally draining few days, but well worth it. My character went through some rough times in life and I was intent on portraying her as best I could. I'll keep you posted on the final product, which I have no doubt will be amazing!!!
