ENTRANCE...the door to fame

I have been actively auditioning for films around the cities, mostly student films. So far I've been cast in five films. I have yet to see any finished products but as soon as I do (if they are any good) I'll post one for all to see.

I've been typed cast already as "the mom". At 41 I guess I'm a mom to anyone under 25 years old. My first shoot was a music video for "Now, Now Every Children" where I was "the mom" of a teenage boy who I am having difficulties with....hmmm...was I playing myself in that movie? Then I did a longer film called "Little Thread Knots" where I play "the mom" of a teenage daughter. I'll shoot another one in a week where I guessed it, "THE MOM" but this time I'm missing a leg and my husband is missing his nose (no, I'm not kidding). OH, I will be playing a bearded lady in a circus - that will look good on a resume!

In order for these films to work, the students scout out a variety of locations. I have been to St. Croix Falls, WI and Rice, MN for one film. I'll be traveling to LeSeur, WI for another one. I am going to try to document these journeys on film. Here are some pics from my adventures.

Hey There! You were so kind to post on my blog the other day and I was not so kind and didn't respond.

Cast in five films? That is fantastic! I'll be checking in to see how they turn out. My movie career ended when I was an extra in the first Scream. I accidentally hit Courtney Cox with my backpack in one of the takes. Ooops!
