On Acting

It's been a busy week or so for me as an actor. So far in the month of April I have been a part of three productions; "Seeking Mary" was screened at the Nashville Independent Film Festival; "Scare Me" was completed and screened by the cast and crew (A Vanderbilt University Film); and "A Father's Choice" (and Independent Feature Film) is currently in production.

I love acting, I love it, I love it! Especially film and TV, my first love.

A Father's Choice

Here is a picture on the set of the movie "A Father's Choice" being shot here in Tennessee (Dickson). I have a part in the movie; I play "Nurse Bower" in the maternity ward. The script is really GREAT and is based on a true story about a father in Tennessee that was kept from seeing his daughter after birth, and how he has fought to get the rights of father's changed in the state of Tennessee - the true story of William Fain is heart-wrenching, I cried when I read the end of the script.
I am pictured here with two of my dearest friends, Karen Carlson and Kathy Knox (William Fain in the background). Karen will be playing the part of "Ms. Little" as well as Associate-Producing. Kathy is the much needed and very important Script Supervisor.

My experience shooting was as fun as ever, I love acting, it really is my FIRST Love!

A study of roses

I saw these roses the other day at Costco. And, since I had never picked out my roses for Valentines day, I thought that I'd make these the ones.
And of course, I decided to do a rose study with them. I spent about 1.5 to 2 hours working with these roses trying to get the PERFECT shot. I remember the days when I would point and shoot, and that was great enough, but not now... Now I have to make it more difficult for myself, now I have to do what a pro would do... blah blah blah...

Anyway, here are the two favorite shots I created. I think they are beautiful.
