The Fabulous Adventures of Astera: Writer/Actress for Hire

Meet Astera (aka: me), a star in her own mind. Our plucky little heroine has embarked on not one but two difficult, low-paying career paths: writing and acting. Witness the menial jobs! The unreasonable demands! The quirky friends and family! And the glimmer of success just ahead! Through it all, Astera maintains her core beliefs: 1) She is destined to be fabulous 2) Everything is more fun with a cocktail.

Progress, At Last!

Some good news from the acting front, although I doubt it will appease those who cast aspersions on my abilities. I finished my voiceover demo CD last week, and I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. My coach knows someone with a professional recording studio, so we went to his place and laid down tracks. Bob, the sound engineer (is that what they're called?), told me that I did a great job, and David, my coach, later told me that he doesn't say that to most people. Also, because I was so "prepared and professional," my recording session didn't take as long as most, so it cost less! Gotta love that. So, my darling husband is helping me design packaging for my CDs and then I will be sending them out, along with my headshots, to agents this weekend!

In other news, I had two auditions scheduled this week. One was a voiceover audition today for a character in an upcoming Sony video game. I actually read for all three female characters, and it was really fun. But since it's my first voiceover audition, I'm not expecting too much. On Friday, I'll be auditioning for a TV commercial...I get the script tomorrow. At least I'm getting out there. And on the "real job" front, I had an interview at a fun company this week, and I'm going for a second interview at another company next week. Perhaps things are picking up.
