I was having a discussion with a friend the other day and it came up that since my last agent quit the business, I haven’t looked for another. That prompted her to ask me “Did you quit acting?”. I responded that “No, I haven’t quit acting…but I have stopped auditioning” That’s an over-simplified response, but it felt right and most closely articulated my current perspective. She didn’t get what I was saying and thus she doesn’t really get ME.
It was August 31, 2011 and I added a jolt to the JD Experience. There was need for a kick-start and when the opportunity presented itself, I took on the challenge. It started with the normal Spinning class that I teach at 7:30, then it was an hour in the weight room, then I taught the 9:30 class. After that I went home and lived the day like a mere mortal, until I then taught the 6:30pm class after battling LA traffic to only be a couple of minutes late. Yeah, I think that adds to the super hero thing I got going on in my own mind. Seriously, in my self-image, I’ve got a cape and everything.
It has been a little bit since my last blog entry. I have been a little distracted. A portion of that time was consumed with shooting the next “Stuck” experience, called Textually Active.
At the end of this blog post, I have embedded the film for you to see. If you haven’t already seen it, we’d love for you to take a peek. We’re pretty confident that you’ll enjoy yourself. OK, enough of that; let’s take you to your regularly scheduled blog reading, so you can see why I’m calling myself a “gifted director”.
