I'm flying out to Sydney in a few hours to attend Vidinc (a slightly lower key youtube gathering compared to VidCON). JENNA MARBLES is going to be there! She's a true inspiration to me because she did the whole uni thing, got a degree but she still followed her heart and did what she wanted. Now she's into business and it's pretty close to what I want to do! I want to have my own website, sell my merch, market myself and do lots of fun stuff. I'm getting excited thinking about the future. It's fun when you simply let go of the fear what amazing things you can do with your life.
Hopefully I will get a chance to shoot some blogs while I'm there.
I had a meeting with a lovely melbourne film director for a product web commercial. It turns out that he's very similar to me - he's from melbourne and is moving to LA to pursue his dreams - the very exact same thing I want to do. I also used to be a producer so I could see where he's coming from. It felt more like 2 producers rather than a director and actor meeting. I'm so glad to be working with him because when 2 people of similar life goals work together, something very powerful happens. (I'm also happy because I didn't have to 'audition' for the role). Instead he bought me coffee and we had a 'chat' just like how the professionals do it in LA. WOW! THANK YOU TIM!
They say when you let things go, it comes flying back!
This week I've had a TVC offer, a role in a low budget film in Sydney, a meeting with a new agent, musical theatre audition, a VCA short film offer and some more medical acting work.
Recently I have decided to let go of acting to focus on a more 'stable' life. I really want to get my life back on track so that my ecosystem is balanced again. I feel that acting was demanding too much of my energy and not providing me with the nourishment I need to get through my daily life.
However, as soon as I let go, all these acting offers/auditions came up within 1 WEEK. It is very rare that I even get a TVC audition, let alone role offers so I think the universe is probably telling me not to give up on acting. The world obviously needs me
