I am interested in the Film & TV industry because I am an actor (or actress, whichever you prefer). I love that the film industry is booming in New Orleans. My goals are to be a part of this movement, to contribute my creativity and skills to making our city known for yet another art form. For the foreseeable future, I would like to act. But I am also a writer, and I love costumes & wardrobe. I want to join the group because I attended a meeting, and I felt the positivity and love, and want to be a part of something good. I think HURD can help me to meet the right people and be in the right places to do amazing things. I can learn so much, and together we can create a great culture and environment for film in New Orleans.
I have worked under the direction of Drew Chastain of IIWII films, in projects varying from music video to documentary, in roles of actress to PA. Please see http://www.iiwiifilms.com/movies.cfm. I acted in the local indie films, "Shelter: A Monster Movie" and "Radio". I have worked on-stage as an actor and dancer, both locally, out of state, and abroad. I was raised as a performer. I have modeled for artists and photographers. I am currently reviewing a book of shorts by Drew Chastain, full-time mothering Valentina, and preparing for my return to film.
I live in New Orleans, the beautiful Crescent City, and this is where I would like to attend meetings.
I'm an actor. Someday I would like to write. I do enjoy wardrobe and costumes. I have worked as PA and DA.
I am not a member of a union - yet.
Hello, I'm Sunshine. I am an actor, among many things. I am the mother of Valentina, 22 months old. We attended the August HURD meeting, and now I'm inspired to continue attending meetings and start acting! Learning, creating, being - let's do it!
