The Business of Being an Actor – PART II

Written by

What are the credentials that actors need to succeed? Acting is one of the few professions that does not require a degree, or even specific training to get a job. It’s the only profession I’m aware of where if you have the best training in the world, studied at the finest institutions, performed theater all your life, and practiced under the most prestigious acting coaches and gurus - you are not guaranteed to get work.

Who doesn’t want to get more done?

Latest NOHO Mural is finished!

NoHo Mural Project - Mural by Levi Ponce

Lacy with Broadway Dance Center Prez  Director

Hmmm……where do I begin? Well, honestly I never really considered myself a dancer! I was born with unbridled energy, rhythm and passion in Brooklyn, New York to a very loving Family in very close quarters and not much income. What we lacked in finances was filled with support, encouragement, hope, dreams and discipline.

“Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone”

Sometimes the easiest way to advise a person embarking on their dream is not to tell them what to do and how to do it, but what not to do and how to avoid doing that over and over again.

“As a white candle in a holy place, so is the beauty of an aged face.” - Joseph Campbell (Gaelic name Seosamh MacCathmhaoil), Irish poet.

Robin HartThese wise words were the inspiration behind photographer Robin Hart’s newest exhibit, “The Wisdom of Wabi-Sabi,” now open at the NoHo Senior Arts Colony Apartments, a Los Angeles senior apartment community centered around the arts. This wonderful new exhibit will be on display now through March 3, 2014, and is free to the public.

I’ve been thinking about you a lot lately. Yes you, seriously, you. The people I share my real experiences, lessons, successes and failures with. It’s an intimate relationship even though we may never meet in person and it is important to me that it is authentic and honest.

Business of being an actor

Written by

actors1The beginning of the year is the perfect time to do a self-assessment; to review, make plans, and set goals. In my classes at the Actors Workout Studio, we spend time in January and February working on goals and actions, and discussing the actor’s business model. Painfully, a lot of actors don’t want to discuss the ugliness of business, just the beauty of making art. Some students even avoid my business classes altogether, and return when we get back to learning the craft.

Industry Tips - It’s never too late to start

Written by

jessie-jan2014

For some reason, the month of January is my time to re-evaluate and realign my life, goals, and purpose. It’s a time where I encourage myself to do something differently, be adventurous, or change a habit. And for Auld Lang Syne, each year I gather my intentions, light the candles and make resolutions to become a better person. Wish me luck.

Last week my friend, Mr. Dolce, who is a language arts teacher at Van Buren Middle School in Albuquerque, NM told me about a list he had found on the web that some of his students were discussing in a round table type format. He read the list, called 16 Harsh Truths that Make Us Stronger, to me over the phone and I immediately knew I wanted to see it for myself. The original list was written by Marc and Angel (of Marc and Angel Hack Life). As a ballet teacher I felt inspired by their list to write  15 truths about being a professional dancer. Some are adapted from Marc and Angel's list and some come from my own experiences. If you haven't looked at Marc and Angel's site, I highly recommend it. They have many inspiring posts.

A story should have a beginning, a middle and an end… but not necessarily in that order.
- Jean-Luc Godard

Well, thats one way of looking at it, but before the story there is the idea, and a beginning.

An Interview with Toria Brightside - Photographer

Written by

I had the chance to talk to the lovely Toria Brightside. At such a young age she has achieved so much, running fashion shows for charity, being featured in fashion magazines as big as Vogue, all while studying Photography in Leeds. There is yet so much more to come from this bright young thing.

‘Across The Pond’ England, 2009

All the movies released over the past year, and even some not yet to be released, are vying for our attention, good reviews and possible consideration for various award ceremonies.

I adore this time of year! Yes, somewhere chestnuts are roasting on an open fire but here it’s my favorite time of year because there are sparkly lights everywhere, my birthday is imminent, and there are an abundance of reasons to go shopping! What’s not to love?

Paul Becker is best known as a protégé to the genius Kenny Ortega but he has evolved far beyond his dance roots to become one of the world’s busiest and best choreographer/directors; frequently appearing as a Judge on hit television shows like So You Think You Can Dance (CAN).
