Our “Shoot for the Stars!” editorials interest future Hollywood Stars! Our opinions are based on personal experiences of actor failures and successes on their way to reach their final stardom. They will tell of their emotional experiences and what they did or did not do to get them through the gauntlet to success. If you are thinking about the wonderous career of acting, and to some extend directing, you can not afford to miss Espresso’s “Shoot for the Stars!” editorials.
I just joined the team here at Espresso Films and I am the only Actor that does nothing but act. At least that is what I tell everyone since my dad will not let me sit around “Shooting for the Stars” all day without making money. I really do not know why. I told him he would be the first to be rich after I get rich. But he says, “Honey, I have no doubt about that, but you have to buy food and pay rent.” I can understand what he is saying, he has paid for my existence up to now. But thanks to billyLAx, I can now hold my own. Kind of… it is expensive in LA so I think as much as I hate asking, I will have to go back to dad, for at least the near future. So, daddy, if you are reading this, I just want to say “Thank-you” and I love you and you will not regret it.
I live in a one-bedroom apartment that I share with my friend Jill. Jill is also in the same position I am as her acting career has yet to blossom. We both go to a lot of casting calls, more commercials than not but have yet to be selected. We boost each other up all the time and if it weren’t for Jill, I think I would have quit. I think the feeling with Jill is mutual. It’s easy to get down. However, now that I am in with billyLAx, Zalak, CC bell and Maxx TEE, things are about to change. What a great group! Zalak keeps me motivated like no other (well maybe tied with Jill) I am trying to get Jill in with Espresso and billy says that when we get more budget, he would love to hire her. But the budget is the keyword. No money, no honey, as billy puts it. Not sure what honey is but I guess I can make that part up. One thing is for sure, billy is always a gentleman. Zalak has nothing but good to say about him and they have worked together for a good long time.
billy talks about dreams a lot. He talks about following them. But he also cautions about driving off a cliff. He tells me there are thousands who try to do this business, with never-ceasing belief, only to find themselves washed up in Hollywood in serious debt and living like they did when they first started the business. He tells me to always tell everyone in the business that I am an Actor and that is the only thing I do, but in reality, have a plan B, such as digital marketing with Espresso Films. The nice thing about billy, he is like a father to me. Always watching out for me, showing me the ropes, and never letting me drive off the cliff. He says, if you “Shoot for the Stars” and do not make it, you are bound to land high anyway. Love you billy.
Oh, by the way, next week I have my first casting call for a major independent movie. Suppose to be a chick flick so I am ecstatic. Told billy, and he said that if they were smart enough to choose me, we were going to give them massive internet exposure. I think Zalak talked to billy. Thank-you Zalak.
