Girl who dances in a cage

the acting bug

I did voice over work for eonen's film last weekend. It gave me the HUGEST smile when she wrote of me in her journal: "My female lead needs to really kick ass, and she does." There are fewer great pleasures in life than doing something you love AND being appreciated for it. And that wasn't even real acting. For the voice over work I didn't do any preparation and hardly used any of the arsenal of tools and techniques we learned in acting classes. I just sort of winged it.

I miss acting. I miss the hell out of it. For those that know me for my dancing, I only learned how to dance 2 years ago. The craft of acting been calling me my entire life. I don't ask for much from the craft. I don't expect to make a living at it or even get paid for it (although I never expected to get paid for dancing either and I get paid better for that than any other job I've ever had). All I want to do is be able to do it. A lifetime of community theater would even make me happy. If you love something, you just want to do it for the joy of it.

I've got an audition for doctorferro's sci-fi film coming up. Apparently there may be at least one kick ass alien chick type part that may be able to benefit from the martial arts skills I've just started learning. We'll see. And speaking of the Kung Fu class, it makes it very challenging to continue that class AND return to acting classes. I need to find a permanent part time job with a more predictable schedule so I can pursue both things I love at once.
