Sunday I got a film a small role for the movie Angel's Bounty. Some directors can be very set in stone with their vision - they might want a line delivered a specific way and that way only - but Lee Fleming let me exercise my improv skills and deliver my line any way I wanted! This is an actor's dream and so fun! The basic break down of the scene is: I deliver a drink to the main character, Angel (played by the beautiful Kristen Springer) from a guy hitting on her at a bar. Some takes I played it as that I had slept with that same guy before and was PISSED I had to give another girl a drink from him. Others I played it crying upset. Some takes I played it annoyed with my job, and I even did a disney princess sweet waitress, because I'm me lol. To top it all off, the actor who played the Skin Horse in my Velveteen Rabbit play (Patrick) was also on set playing another role! What a small world.
In Scared Scriptless LA news, we asked for suggestions on our Facebook page for a name of someone and a fun fact about them - job, hobby, where they live etc... and then did an Irish Drinking Song! I hope we can continue reaching out through Facebook and creating more specific improv for friends. You can watch the video for Tony Kutzler below.
Our next show is coming up in MAY! We will debut a new long form style we have been enjoying called "Follow The Exit-er". Check back for more details. :)
Two weeks ago I had the lovely opportunity to film a part in Off The Boat Productions' comedy short "16 Championships". I played the disgruntled girlfriend of a Lakers obsessed fan. I adore working with Julius Delacruz and Vanessa Augustin. They're organized, professional, and surround themselves with talented and responsible people. I'm very familiar with long days on set, and Vanessa & Julius get you in and out quickly. I hope to work with them again very soon!
