I’m so sorry that I haven’t blogged in a while. Truth be told, I kinda lost confidence in it. Then I got a really lovely message from an actress I know telling me that I’d inspired her to take up weight training and that she loved my blog! Thanks Anna 🙂
In the last couple of month, things have been pretty exciting. I’m starting a new theatre company with my friends George and Ali, and we’re having a casting for our fourth actor very shortly. I can’t wait to see what it’s like to be on the other side of the casting process!
I also submitted my application to be a BLUE PETER PRESENTER!!! Although I’ve never done any presenting in my puff I’d always loved Blue Peter when I was wee and can’t think of a more fun job. Here’s the link to my showreel that I made for the application Be Nice! The presenting part wasn’t that tough but the editing… Ain’t nobody got time fo dat! It took me a whole day to put that together, lots of camomile tea and screaming. So if I don’t get short listed then at least I know how to edit something!
If that isn’t enough Shona for you then I also made a short film without even leaving my flat! I was involved in a short film, made entirely on a Google+ chat room.
The idea was really cool because the actors were spread all over Britain and I believe at one point we even rehearsed while Vasso was in Greece! Poor Declan (the director), it took us so long to make because we were reliant on 7 computers and Internet connections all working well and even though it is 2013, rarely does that actually happen. But we got there in the end!
