As I write this, the evenings are getting noticeably lighter and I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to the spring now! Lighter evenings, park life with my little man, BBQs and drinks outside with my hubby and friends!
It has been a really busy month with castings and recalls! Always hard juggling work with motherhood but I wouldn't have it any other way. It was particularly hard this last week as Hugo (my bubba) has had a cough and a few broken nights, commercial castings and lack of sleep don't mix too well...thank goodness for touché éclat I say! I was going up for the part of the Mum so dark circles and grubby jeans are spot on no? ;) Hopefully hear some good news back soon.
Talking of good news I have been confirmed for a photoshoot in the next two weeks, it's for a holiday company and should be good fun. It's an afternoon's work so hopefully all will go well, I'll be sure to take plenty of pictures for you!
You may or may not know that my hubby Mark Bousfield is trying to get his latest film up and running, Ghost Nets. If you are not familiar with the Kickstarter campaign let me shed a bit of light on it for you.
Kickstarter is a website that provides a service better known as crowd sourced funding, it's an ideas factory of sorts where you can find people with new start ups/projects that they want to get off the ground. The idea is that investment and development is much more democratic and available to everyone, not just businessmen!
In return for a variable pledge the project offers rewards back for your investment. It's a great way for small business or grass roots projects to gain a foothold and for people that invest their money to be close to the people creating something new. Making a film is tough and finance is often the biggest stumbling block to creativity at this level of the industry. Check out the link below to the Kickstarter for Ghost Nets to learn a bit more about the project and hear from the Director and DOP (Director of Photography) as to what it is all about...
Here are some behind the scenes pics and a bit more info about the film and my character Matilda.
Anyway, must get ready for my casting and try and get an early night!
