As the film progresses, I feel a bit like Dorothy seeing Oz for the first time. Not the sequels, they were meh, but the initial vision of spectacular shades of brilliance and the strange land that took her breath away.
Working on this film has brought me enjoyment and more work than I ever anticipated. Who knew I'd have fun viewing auditions with the knowledge that I had an actual say in the decision. It's been exhilarating. How many times have you watched a film or TV show and said you would've gone with a different actor in the role? It's been a blast to see my vision come to life. I can only imagine what it will be like on the shoot.
These past few weeks have sort of blind-sided me, I hoped I'd make it to quarter-finalist somewhere, but deep down I didn't think it was possible. Getting the laurels has been both a boost in confidence and a "Oh crap, what if this is it? What if this is my best and everything falls apart?" Hello OCD my little friend. But I've been trying hard to push it back and keep it in check. Telling that little voice to take a seat on the train to nowhere and stay there.
I want to thank all of you for your kind words and encouragement, they never go unnoticed. They're the light that keeps me on my path and gives me the strength to hold onto to my dream. You are my happy place on doubtful days, and the ones I celebrate with for each victory, big and small.
Please don't forget to join me and Bekah Wray Halterman at the Galleria Mall for Henderson Pride Fest on Saturday, June 11th from 11am - whenever they kick us out. LOL
We'll be talking about our upcoming film, and the latest on my Alex McKenna series.
Thank you, for taking this journey with me.
