Young Lions Film Festival 2018

As you might already know, I’ve been doing quite a bit of theatre this year in addition to music. What sprang up in my mind out of nowhere came proved to be extremely enjoyable, inspiring and enriching.

And now I’m delighted to share with you that I got cast in my first commercial:-) I saw the casting call for it on Facebook and submitted my resume and pics.

The commercial was filmed for the Young Lions Film Competition by the amazingly talented team from Japan. This Competition is actually pretty cool! The challenge that the competitors face is having only 24 hours to film and edit a 60-second commercial. Every year the theme changes and this year’s theme was Women’s Rights (surprise surprise)…

Being part of this project was a blast and an amazing opportunity to learn and hone my skills! I was very curious what it was going to be like but the experience has exceeded all my expectations. I was portraying a bride and it was all filmed at a beautiful cathedral in France. IMG_1314 IMG_1322

This story is yet another reminder that we should follow our instincts and let things unfold naturally.

I’d love to hear your stories about your first acting gigs and the lessons you’ve learnt since.

In the meantime, good luck with all your projects, stay positive and grateful no matter what, and love yourself! xxx
