I’ve spent a lot of time the past few weeks working on this awesome project that I shared with you guys here. Since then, lot’s has happened. We launched a crowd-funding campaign to fund our project, got some awesome press ( read it here ) and raised a little more than double what we asked to fund our film. Boy, what a ride!
The story is centered on two total strangers on the verge of suicide. Their paths cross when Adam and Evelyn have the same exact idea: jumping from the top of a roof ( the same roof ). The twist? They get locked up there. Now, aside from sorting out their own internal conflicts, they have to deal with one another.
While my co-writer and I were finalizing the script, an amazing team of talented female filmmakers ( and a super talented gentleman) have come together to make it all happen. We’ve been keeping everyone updated on all behind-the-scenes stuff through the film’s official Instagram and have slowly began making introductions to the cast and crew. How? Testing their roof surviving skills. read more
RECENTLY : I’ve decided to get out of my comfort zone and go camping with Robinson. Aside from all the stress, constant vulnerability and rejection a life as an actress generate, I lost a dear friend and mentor in a terrible accident this past month. That caused me to wanna reset and re-evaluate my own choices and how I’ve been using my time lately. One of the things she’d always stress when we were together was the importance of seeing the good in things, even when things didn’t seem so good. She’d always tell me that with time, I’d become kinder to myself. But the biggest and most important lessons of them all wasn’t really anything she said. It was what she did, how she did it. Molly was one of the most generous women I’ve met in my entire life. She truly, genuinely cared.
For the last two months, I have been traveling around Brazil. Belo Horizonte, Ipatinga, Curitiba, São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro are the of places I visited within that time. It was long enough to rest some, work some, and live some.
There’s something about removing myself from my normal environment for a long period of time and I inevitably begin to re-evaluate things. I use this natural process to make necessary adjustments in both my work and personal life and it’s always worked out well for me.
Music has been part of my life ever since I can remember. It began with me begging my father to sing “A casa” by famous bossa nova composer Vinícius de Moraes over and over again. Those tunes would stick with me and trigger what later became a real appreciation for music. In this video I open up about the impact of music in my childhood, and how this passion evolved into a talent and my dreams.
I’ve been working with photographer Francisco Rojas in building our portfolios. So every now and then we get together and put on a photoshoot. This was one of the looks and definitely my favorite. There’s just something about pairing black lace and red lips that never fails.
When I first learned I’d get to be a zombie in Goodnight My Love my first reaction was: YES! Second reaction following immediately after, I rushed to the remote control to watch an episode oh Walking Dead and start making zombie noises. You know, to perfect my growling skills. I knew I’d have to rely on the makeup department for a lot of the characterization and they were nothing short of amazing. Catherine Woods is a hell of a makeup artist. Everything looked so real (and disgusting) I had a hard time looking directly in the mirror and at other zombies after the transformation.
