A new reel I put together with some recent work. Had a couple projects finalize edits and are currently making the rounds. Always exciting to see something come together – and can’t wait to see what happens next. Great teams behind all of the projects.
🎬 Amy’s Tasting Room Diaries 🎬 First time I’ve gotten to combine the dream of work & travel… and it’s everything I’d hoped it’d be. Spending a week in Solvang and Los Olivos, filming all day, trying to explore at night but mostly being in bed by 8pm and asleep by 830pm for a 7am call time. It was simply the best…
I wish I could do this every single day and am so happy I got to sample the life experiences of combining work and travel – the two things I love doing the most.
Thanks to the entire cast and crew – you were a damn joy to be around every day for a week and hope we all do this again!
Well, we could all use a little laugh. I had a SAG workshop online and they had us do a self tape to send in to the casting director. Rather than send an old tape, or even worse, ask a friend to come over and help, I did it myself (at home) and facetimed with a friend who read remotely. Safety first, right?
It’s a fun two-minute scene and usually I would never post a self tape that isn’t professionally done, but hopefully we can let it slide during this time and enjoy content over production/sound quality… even though I admit the facetime reading seemed to work pretty well.
Anyways – if you have two minutes – check this little scene out.
Here is a scene from The Normal Heart performed by Scott Bender for television director, Alec Smight.
In the scene, Ned (Scott Bender) is asking his brother, Ben, to help with their committee in the fight against the 1980’s AIDS/HIV break out. Ned is a gay man while Ben is a straight man, and they have never seen eye-to-eye on this cause.
Scott performs the scene twice, once as practiced and once with a note from Alec to be more sarcastic and joking in the beginning and let that emotion ride out.
