I'm SAG Eligible!

I am so excited to report that I am on my way to join SAG because I just received my Invitation Letter on this past weekend. I was so fortunate to shoot my first Webisode Episode as a SAG Signatory, which helped me to achieve this goal under the New Media Contract with SAG. 

I believe the opportunity to prove how serious you are about your acting career balls down to taking advantage of the great opportunities when they are put into your awareness. No one will spoon-feed you in this business and it is indeed a business that you have to want more than anything else or you will find yourself jaded by all the nonsense some other insecure professionals dish out. It calls for you to develop your own strategy of achieving your goals. I truly believe that it doesn't matter how long it takes to get where you want to be, as long as you don't quit and keep moving towards WHERE you want to be. All the questions you have about the business are out there on the internet. You just have to access it and ask the right questions and you will find the answers. I know this for a fact, personally!

I played multiple roles in the development of my webisode, coming soon to Youtube, and other Internet Media Outlets. It's almost finished with the editing process and I am sitting in the editing bay right next to the editor, every Sunday, to make sure that it has the look and feel I want to see. It feels so good to be taking my career into my own hands. I can't blame anyone for me not reaching the goals I expect for myself, to achieve. I know what I want and I am going after it with God leading the way.

So, if you're interested in doing the same thing to become SAG eligible, let me know. I will lead you to the right information. Leave me a comment with your email address or find me on Facebook (selena149)

Happy New Year - What Goal Setting Can Do!

Happy New Year Everyone! Wow, What Goal Setting Can Do!

I can't believe that we are in a new year already, but it just gives us an even more better excuse to reset our clocks to a new point in our lives. I have already this year began to accomplish goals that I hoped to work on 3 years ago, but I understand even more now how important it is to be patient.

This year has already started off great! I am shooting the first episode of my webseries. I was fortunate to connect with a great writer and director through my own searching, but also networking, thanks, Tabitha! I organized my first audition session, casting session, and rented rehearsal spaces for the actors. I've reserved the shooting location and getting ready to shoot on next Saturday. I can't believe how far I've come, but I am definitely sending a huge THANK YOU to Christy English - Actor's Edge Program because I wouldn't know half the stuff I know now. I have my goals all written out and I'm amazed at how they are getting accomplished. I know what I have to do this New Year and I'm just getting them done at a nice, smooth, pace.

I'm also taking a great Advanced Scene Study class that I know will take me to another level of 'thinking and responding' as an actor. In the class I have been partnered with another actor for the scene we are working on over the next 4 weeks, which is helping me to understand the networking aspect of the business and meet new people in the industry who are wanting the same things I want in my career. Personally, I am just following God's process and He is doing great things in my creative world. I appreciate it greatly.

So, with all of that said, I hope you have written down your goals and start TODAY, making your goals a REALITY!

I'm creating a blog and possible website for the webisode, so, I'll let you know when that's active.

Be safe and God bless,
