First Real Pilot!

After busting my tail at interviews and auditions for the last few weeks, I am excited to announce that I have landed my first real (outside of TV8/LA36) pilot! I will be co-hosting a new home and garden show with an eco-centric "green" viewpoint as the resident gardener/interior decorator. This means remodeling with earth friendly, local, and recycled materials for TV. I am super stoked at this opportunity- the show is only in its pilot phase, and has not been picked up by a network, but will be pitched to something like HGTV/DIY/TLC in the next few weeks. I have to go to bed now, but I'll keep everyone posted- we're location scouting tomorrow and shooting the pilot/pitch this weekend. (Just goes to show that working non-stop eventually pays off... it's just funny to think that as a host, you're a professional auditioner and only talent after the first season, if not later than that. Haha.)

Alright, short and sweet but that's really all for now- I can't think straight enough at this hour to write coherently!

The Storm Before The Calm

I thought graduating was it. The tough part was over. Finals, papers, it was all done. But oh no, how easy that all was. The hard part is now.

I sit filling out applications, driving a hundred miles a day for different auditions, having people tell me they love me and I'm perfect for the job, and then... nothing. "What's Happening" is on hiatus (email the people over at LA36 and tell them you want it back please!) and aside from the odd modeling job I've got to find something else to do. A dozen applications a night, not going out for fun at all, and dealing with loan consolidations and working on free projects... it'll all pay off, right?

Don't get me wrong- I've got better leads than most people. I'm just scared shitless of the future. Freaking excited too, but scared. Don't know why I'm putting this all out there. I think maybe someday soon I'll look back and say, 'see, it was all okay'. But as of now, I have no idea... only hope. Wish me luck and let me know if you hear of any hosting jobs to keep my fish fed and my rent payed! :-)
