Out of a job

So Cuckoo didn't get enough votes to make it into the next round on RTE... oh well. What can you do? We tried our best and we just didn't get the votes we needed.

I personally think they should have a panel of judges rather than using Facebook to vote but hey ho, thats the way it goes!

So now I'm out of the job and still hoping someone somewhere someday will hire me for something big! In the meantime I'm doing my best to juggle college assignments and get a showreel done! I have a few clips from Cuckoo but nothing too long to go on as they were only 6 min episodes each so a lot of the shots are just one liners or reaction shots. So I'm looking for monologues to film in my mate's college in their studio! Which I am so hoping will work out. There is a great little place in Pearse Street called 'shoot auditions' where they charge 50 euro per monologue... which I think is a bit ridiculous! they should charge 50 euro per hour in the studio! because think how many monologues you can do in an hour!! gosh.. so If i am really and truly stuck and my agent pushes me for any material whatsoever then I think I'll have no choice but to head in and do one or two monologue.

Perhaps I'll try film one today on my computer in my garden, considering that the weather has been so beautiful the last few days here in Ireland. but alas there are always going to be background noises, cars, people, gates and doors and windows opening and closing and with this lovely weather comes the sounds of summer; children playing and the nostalgic sound of lawn mowers!

Anyways, as soon as I have some interesting bits of monologues I will put them up here and post them on youtube to get to hear your views on whether or not they should go on my showreel.

Okey doke, I better get back to my assignments. In the next few days I will probably post some 'philosophical'-'lifestyle' type posts which would just really be my thoughts and ramblings. So please stay tuned!

Best of luck to all you actors out there! keep living the dream!

vote vote vote!!

Hi guys. The voting stats today are really disappointing. The competition is strong and we are trailing. I really don't want to let down anyone who has voted & I really want to make Ep3. Please don't assume that we are high & dry. If you haven't voted I'm really asking you to lend us your support and if you have voted, I'd ask you to ask another few friends to help us through. Thanks so much guys. Vote here. www.rte.ie/drama/featured/storyland/cuckoo.html

Cuckoo Round 2!

Gosh It's been ages since I last posted and I apologize, I have been snowed under with work!!

So on to Cuckoo Round 2!! We finished filming the second episode this weekend and honestly I'm so excited for it to be edited and shown because I have learned so much that I feel will really stand to me when it comes to acting.

Dannan Breathnach and I on the set of Cuckoo... on a cold Monday morning... looking badass...

Ok so in the first episode I overacted a little... ok a lot... but the reason for this is it was my first shot at it. And I'm so used to Theatre that I feel like I just over acted in order to really get my feelings across, when really on camera it's all about being natural and having the looks behind your eyes rather than overly obvious. So this is what I worked on. The eyes.. although I'll admit that in itself was tough considering I'm wearing glasses. And a lot of the time I had to exaggerate things as a moody 17year old would do.. the little drama queen!

I love Niamh Keegan. She's such a drama queen and is mortified and embarrassed by her parents at every outing. She is desperate in her need for attention and a place to fit in and seeks it in the arms of Tina Vickers.. Niamh's suspected mother.

Back in Niamh's bedroom...

This episode is a step up from the first as we see Niamh fantasize a bit about the life she could have had or the slightly bizzare sequences she wishes could be reality. I really thinks this adds a lot to the episodes as we can really understand the inner workings of Niamh...

We shot in Ranelaigh on Sat and Sunday and then in Stillorgan on Monday. Now Obviously I can't write about everything we did because you'll have to wait and see the next episode! But it was long hours and the days were tiring as we changed angles and scenes and costume. All worth it tho hopefully and I'm sure our efforts will not have gone to waste. It's so wonderful to work on set as I am learning so much every single time. I learn more about lighting and the camera angles and how to keep going when something goes wrong.

I absolutely loved working with everyone involved, we had a great new crew this time round with some of the old familiar faces! and I'm so happy to be a part of this project! Be sure to vote for us when it comes out! xxx

Although it's hard work I love every minute of it! This is my career, this is what I want to do for the rest of my life!!! So I try my best to behave and be as great as possible to work with because I know that it's hard for everyone involved when there is a time limit and a budget for these kinds of projects! I absolutely loved working with Brian, Orla, Jeff and Denise. I didn't get to work much with Denise in the last episode so this time it was so amazing to get to work with her because I know that I can learn so much from her.

Anyways, enough rambling... Post ya next time when the project is out (19th March)

Peach out! x
