It's been awhile since I had anything substantial to post for the Pirate gig or Jak Arrows as my pirate ego, but now I will make it up with some Promo Photos and video Yarh!
The most notable thing is taking slaps in this performance, which would total to about 50 or so I'd say. The audience loves it and I honestly don't have feelings there any more... do your worst ladies.
Performance Rating 8.5/10
perhaps more projection and better pirate accent... otherwise the loud Aussie Bogan thing does work.
And while the Promo is apparently still on..
here is the banner to take you to their FB page!
and below is the promo video for our promo performance.
Moved out from my friends for a few days shy of a month and then back in after getting sick and then now I'm sick with something else, though this time it doesn't stop my performance as much.
I like blogging but I suck at maintaining it :( its obviously a time management thing, I always think there is enough time, and generally live with no deadlines personally set, I leave that to the people who hire me to set my limits, is that a terrible way to live?
Between this entry and the last I even forgot to confirm one night to be extra and forgot to do a scheduled audition - to think positive about that is it must be a sign that I am actually busy and this is forgiveable...at least to myself. Still need to keep Passion in check.
Pressing matters aside...
Swensen's 33rd Anniversary featuring me!
see above for the print and train media and the TVC.
shot early last month, it was a very fun and pleasant shoot, I was allowed to snap pictures (which I have yet to process) and I made friends with reps of the client and food artist! Speaking to the client one on one, she mentioned that initially I Was not short listed as my profile pic didn't really go with the guy they already selected, but after seeing video from my audition, they were like, "he can act" and then had to have this amazing face puller :P
feedback like this really means a lot to me, to any performer I hope.
I also got this titbit at the end of the shoot to keep my ego at bay during the day.
They fed us well, the best way swensens knew how, we were spoiled as talent even compared to the Heads of crew, unfortunately i was not in the appetite to be spoiled that day :(
it's not a lead role and I am a bit out of focus in the print, it still is a slow and steady way to the top pattern that I have.. soon.
had my 26th birthday, marking it as my first birthday out of Syd and longest time away from home. GO ME. but after more than 6 months, Its time for me to swing back at what might feel like a holiday to Australia.
but till I get that flight booked, off to audition for.. .something
Performance Rating 9.5/10
perhaps my voice over could be better?
