Opportunity

Beth - Two Sides

With the lead up to pilot season and with the recent triumphs of the Oscars - I am getting very excited for the opportunities to come. This year I feel something big awaits -

I've started off the year with a bang - completing two short films, one written by my lovely and talented friend Lillie Claire, who has just moved to LA to continue pursuing the acting dream. Good luck miss and I will see you down there in the next two years!

The film is called Missing Persons and is directed by Aaron Wintringham. It follows the interaction between the two characters, Jane and Taylor, and the strange happenings that take place inside a grungy laundrymatte. The character of Jane was a new challenge and but I really enjoyed getting to work with Lillie and create a deep connection between the two girls. It will be edited over the coming months and will in turn be submitted into film festivals across Canada.

The second film, Two Sides, was by far a more a technical shoot- but none the less enjoyable for different reasons. Directed by Ryan Atimoyoo, for his UBC Master's project, I got to play the lead character Beth who is another dark and troubled character. We worked with green screen and I will be very interested to see the final edit with SFX!

Watching Jennifer Lawrence take out the Oscar for Best Actress on Sunday was of course inspiring. To see her at age 22 (the same age as me!) getting her first Academy Award was definitely wake up call- time to step up and start hitting it hard.


Congrats to Jennifer Lawrence!

I plan to do more short films and would like to book roles in indi-features over the coming months. And if I play my cards right I want to book something big in the US market as soon as I can!

Here's to the year to come!

Questions

...Questions...

Days, hours, minutes
What does it all mean
Where does the time go
Who's breath will last the longest

Reflections of ourselves
Seen in the mirrors of time
Who will be there to hold you
Who's heart will be the strongest

What journey will make you feel
A strengthened being
Experiencing pride, sorrow and laughter
Without a question longer

Who will lay awake
Into the darkest hour
Wondering what the future holds
And who will make it stronger

When will the time come
When happiness transpires
Without question of why or how
But with acceptance and peace

Why do some wrestle
In the depths of their minds
With shadows of fear
When will it the noise cease

What will bring the laughter
When the sky outside is grey
Without attachment or love
Just a knowing of oneself

How do you transform
With a beating, graceful heart
From cocoon to butterfly
When your can't escape yourself?

Moments

"A moment, a breath
A kiss, a sigh
A feeling, a knowing
A last goodbye

She sits, she breathes
She feels the pain
A sadness, a sorrow
She feels again

To journey, to see
To spread her wings
To sacrifice love
For what her heart sings

To live is to learn
To bite is to teethe
To take that moment
When she forgets to breathe

To feel the guilt
To feel is to see
Life is a moment
Just temporary..."

For Betty 
With love, Meisha.




















We forget to breathe
