Overwhelmed w/ Awesomeness

 

Missed the screening of my short film, 21st Century Romance, last week because of my show w/ Towne Street, 7th Annual 10-Minute Play Festival; but I’m making it to today’s screening of my other short film, Land of Smiles, before getting back on stage tonight! Setting up a network meeting for GUIDES WebSeries, and my next short film, UNIFA, is scheduled to screen next month!! Please Like, Follow, and Share! 

Ciao,

Oh So Thankful

  • Towne Street Theatre has asked the cast of #FAIL to reprise our hilarious performance from this summer’s Sketch Comedy Showcase in next February’s 10-Min. Play Fest
  • Wrapped the suspenseful film, Land of Smiles, which focuses on the sex trade in Thailand
  • Wrapped post on the romantic comedy, 21st Century Romance, which screens next month
  • In post for the action-packed spy thriller, U.N.I.F.A., which screens in March
  • I’ve started a little baking business and am overwhelmed w/ the great reviews

Happy Holidays!

It has been nearly 1 year and 6 months since I was cast as Zyra, the lead villain, in the sci-fi dramedy web series, GUIDES. I am so fortunate to be a part of the same project for this long and to be working alongside a female-dominated team of motivated, relentless promoters–exploring all outlets to expose the potential of this unique project.

For the next 42 days, you have the opportunity to help us get screened at the Montreux Comedy Festival. (<<Click here.) Are we the funniest web series among the lot? No. Are we the most intelligent? Maybe so. Are we undeniably unlike any sci-fi dramedy web series you’ve seen since the explosion of web series? Pretty damn sure. Do we deserve a chance to gain more followers and “make it” to the next level? You can bet on your spot in the long line of your local Apple store on September 19th for the September 20th release of the gold iPhone 5S that YES…we DO. (<<Or here.)

So, be a pal, a nerd, a good samarit–whatever–and watch, vote, share. Then, share some more. The success of this sleeper sci-fi dramedy web series hit depends on it. (<<This is literally it.)

In Solidarity,

Zyra

The Time Has Come…To Be a Badass

Last weekend, I had the absolute pleasure of working with a stunt double for the first time. His name is Flavio Gullo, and he’s Italian as Italian gets. Need I say more?

2013-09-01 07.35.32-1

He played my biker stunt double and could not have been more of a gentle soul. Can you imagine me on that monster of a beautiful bike?

2013-09-01 07.40.40

Ok, yes. But can you imagine me actually riding that sleek hunk of metal?

…No pic there. Maybe someday! What is for sure is that I’ll be back on set this weekend to do my big scene and wrap up the entire project. Half the cast is from Ivan Chubbuck Studio–at the top of my To Go To List–no pressure. Stay tuned!

If you haven’t already, you gotta check out Towne Street Theatre’s comedy, Jackleg, for which I serve as Assistant Director and Producer.

Beyond Therapy, another comedy I produced this summer closed last night, and I could not be more proud. We had a well respected agent in the house last night, as well as several members from the NAACP. Seats are quickly filling up for the closing of Jackleg this weekend!

My reading of Crawdaddy by Barbara White Morgan at The Attic Theatre went swimmingly and was followed by a healthy discussion on racism in America today.

USA Today Bestselling Author, Barbara Bretton, has asked me to record another audiobook for her through ACX/Audible! It’s a holiday-themed novella, so it should be out by Halloween. Our last project, Charmed: A Sugar Maple Short Story, can now be found on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes.

Busy Busy Bee

Greetings & Salutations,

I have had a busy week–but the good kind of busy!

On Monday, I had my weekly Skype session w/ a fellow V.O. for Voice Registry’s Weekend Workout, followed by my first sketch comedy class. After 10 weeks of sketch w/ Ken Cosby, Towne Street Theatre–of which I am a company member–will produce a showcase, and all are welcome!

On Tuesday, I had my second week of commercial class w/ Coach Mike!’s Hey, I Saw Your Commercial! After already having had studied commercials and booking a few nationals, there’s nothing better than a refresher course to keep things…fresh!

On Wednesday, I had my weekly BookPALS reading for 2 1st grade classes, and boy, do they get rowdier as summer vacay approaches. As an aspiring animation V.O., there’s no better vocal playground than a class of honest, impatient, booger-picking tykes! I also hosted a production meeting for my web series, GUIDES, during which we confirmed my credit as a Producer for Season 2!

Thursday was the best by far. I had a “straight to callback” for a wonderful CD and ad agency whom I’ve had the pleasure of working w/ before. Fingers crossed! I then had my first rehearsal and run-through for “Magic Mirror,” an interactive improv show for kids–also produced by Towne Street. We go up for Glen Feliz Elementary next week! I ended the night by working the box office for TST’s fundraiser, Students Without Boundaries, at Stella Adler Theatre.

On Friday, I found new titles to audition for on Audible.com and then cleared my mind w/a hike and first-time visit to Griffith Park. Way less crowded than Runyon!

On Saturday, I attended my fourth Alumni Day at UCLA, which showcased the newly beautified Pauley Pavillion. I can’t wait to get season tickets!

Today was my first shoot for a new comedic short film, 21st Century Romance, by published playwright, Ralph Tropf. This is my second time working w/ Ralph, and he’s guaranteed that it won’t be the last! I can’t think of a better finish to a crazy busy week than dinner w/ GUIDES web series creator, Jenn Wilson. We’ve just come back from hiatus, but we’re already talking about Season 2!
