Needless to say acting is a tough career and sometimes following your dreams means surviving your worst nightmares. One of the hardest challenges to deal with when pursing acting, is facing rejection and moving forward with confidence no matter what happens. It’s a numbers game and the trick is to do your best when you get the chance to shine, to “stay in the moment,” even when you know it’s back to pounding the pavement when your acting job is completed.
I got a role in Evan Nicholas’ short film “Headshot” and documented my day of filming, facing my fears, and then sharing with my viewers the final product – a fun film that deals with the very theme so many actors face. A film about how sometimes no matter how great of an actor you are, that doesn’t mean you are “right” for the part.
While I was on location shooting “Me and Babs Do the Wild West” filmmaker and journalist Soo Hwang asked me about how I’m different from my character Andie Mills on Life With Babs and why I choose a character that is so optimistic.
Here is the video I shot on my Route 66 trip for my You Tube channel “Life With Babs”.
For my birthday my father-in-law bought me a DigiLife DDV-5120A. I have yet to find something as cool as this little guy as it had a flip screen so I could view what I was shooting even when the camera lens was pointed at me.
The first day I started using this camera l played around with some of the settings and made three short experimental flims. To view all of them visit Trina Posey on YouTube where I post my art and experimental videos.
Before I had 3 YouTube channels, 3 short films and tons of pictures and video cluttering up 4 external hard drives, I was studying photography at Santa Monica College and I made this photography film to the Shel Silverstein poem Sick for one of my final projects.
