I’m finally able to write something about my experiences on 2 great productions!
1. 13 Hours – Michael Bay
I got the most amazing opportunity to take part in Michael Bay’s latest movie along side some amazing actors! It was a once in a lifetime opportunity to work with him and I do hope that more movies come my way in the future. Being on a set is addictive! You get terribly starry-eyed, which is very difficult to put aside – you just want to chase your dreams even more after an experience like that!
I also got to work along side some incredible Maltese talent that I had not had the opportunity to get to know in the past. Some incredible people, with big hearts and huge, contagious smiles that I really miss now that it’s all over. Not to mention all the great crew I got to know and meet along the way as well – both local and foreign. It was one of the best experiences of my life and I will not be forgetting it any time soon.
Here’s the IMDB listing for the movie. Check it! I’m listed there! 😀
2. Jack and His Beanstalk – Steve Hili
Yes, another great, hilarious and very successful show written and directed by the one and only – Steve Hili. We had a fantastic run, got to open another night after selling out 2 shows and performing to full houses and most people loved the show! I say ‘most people’, if you don’t know Steve’s writing you can either love it or hate it. I believe that Steve writes about things that people are afraid to laugh about and we need more of that in this country. We are so uptight sometimes.
I am happy to say that I got to work with people I’d already worked with before and people who I didn’t. People who I love and who inspire me. Supportive friends and ridiculously talented people all round.
We didn’t get a good crit in the Times, however, that is just one person’s opinion! The rest of the audiences loved the show and that’s the most important thing to take on board when something like that happens. What did most of the audience think of it? If they didn’t like the show then that’s too bad! Other people will love it 🙂 And they did!
Now! To work on my Diploma and the next production in October: A HANDBAG – directed by Andy Smith. Look out for us!
