A word of advice to those looking to save some dough and find someone who will do something for your career on the cheap: do your research. I happened to cross paths with a young film student who seemed to have all the necessary qualifications for the job. I hummed and hawed when I finally got the reel back but the fact of the matter was - it wasn't great. And there is no point in putting something out there if you don't like what it represents.
SO...luckily my amazing friend and director of Footsteps, Noam Kroll came to the rescue! Over a two hour session together yesterday, not only did he create and edit a new reel for me, he also helped me understand how to get it online and onto the internet ASAP. What a gem. So here it is ladies and gents! Hope you like it!
Must give credit where credit is due! The footage on my reel is from the following projects:
Footsteps - Independent Feature Film, Directed by Noam Kroll
David at Home - Short Film, Directed by Alexa Di Cambio (official selection, Hills Film Festival)
Enamour - Short Film, Directed by Justin Ho (official selection, Soho International Film Festival)
Allie Dunbar - Demo Reel 2012
Run, Run, Run!
It's "long run" training day and I am thrilled to say that I've completed a 5mile run! I thought it would never happen! Fellow blogger and everyone's favorite Darwinian Fail, Krysten, told me that every increase in distance would seem impossible but somehow if you stick to your guns it will happen, and she was right! Now I'm feeling a little sore but ready to rock a long overdue girls night out!
And this song goes out to...
Krysten's half-marathon is coming up this Sunday in Burlington. We had planned to run the Goodlife May 6th one together, but her surgery date was set after we made this plan and she wouldn't have enough time to recover and train pre race. So the amazing lady found herself a half-marathon that would work with her surgery (literally the day before!). GOOD LUCK KRYSTEN! This song is for you, this helped me through the last bit of my run today, maybe it'll help on Sunday!
