Dreams

I had a very vivid dream the night before my 23rd birthday.

I dreamt I was standing at the edge of a cliff, overlooking Vancouver city and the snowcapped mountains. The sun was shining, the sky was blue, with but a few clouds in the air. It was as if I were looking North and standing at Cambie St and Broadway where they meet...but it was a cliff.

As I looked into the distance, the road ahead began to melt into a red carpet. Into the distance it then connected with the mountains and led to the sun.

I drew I picture so I wouldn't forget it. It was such a vivid dream....


As I looked at this beautiful sight, I found myself stuck on the edge of this cliff, high above the ground with nothing but thousands of feet of nothingness and rocks below. People around me were falling - some would hit the rocks below, while others made the leap and began to walk towards the road when they landed.

I was so afraid to jump, and fall into the abyss...but I knew if I didn't take that leap of faith, I would never reach the road below.

So I jumped.

And then I woke up.

...Dreamer...

Unwritten


The latest short film I have been acting in is a UBC project called "Unwritten". The story follows April (played by yours truly), a once professional horse rider who had a critical riding accident. For the past three months she has suffered from amnesia - now she is just trying to find her way in the world.

The themes of isolation, lonliness, desperation, longing, life and death are all interlaced between the last three short films I've acted in - perhaps my move to Vancouver has expanded my emotional skill set!

It's great just to be on camera again and I look forward to my next short film which starts shooting next week. I'm also excited to cut a new demo-reel - this time using material with only my North American accent.

Here's a link to Behind the Scenes of Unwritten http://www.youtube.com/watchv=6FoxVa9I6Ks&feature=youtube
(46 Seconds is my favourite section haha totally unprompted and unscripted!).

 We parked right near this - very fitting!

Pilot season - I'm right here waiting for you!

I've also been very lucky to tee up some new headshots up with friend and videographer Cole Bayford - here's a sneak peak!


There is a buzz in the air!
