...aaaand, ACTION!

Acting is a hobby of mine.  I love acting.  No, that's not quite right...I LOVE acting! Two years ago at about this time, I answered an open call to an acting school in the Cities.  Upon enrolling, I completed one acting class and one modeling class.  Since then I've taken part in several gigs of each variety in the Cities area, and have realized that I LOVE acting and modeling is, well, going to be put on the backburner for awhile except for those things I've already committed to.

Acting is so expressive, and I have met some absolutely wonderful people through this particular art.  One of the films I was in recently ("The Humanity Code") won an award at a local film festival.  Next week a friend and I get to attend the premiere of another project I was in.  The past two weekends have seen me traveling to Wausau, WI to act in a movie by Jarrod Crooks.  I've even served as crew and helped hold booms, maintain continuity between takes, etc.  (For my IMDB profile, click here...but note that it is a work in progress).  To tell you the truth, I think every actor should be on a crew or two at some point - it really helps to know what the crew is going through when trying to make a shot "right".  BUT somehow the thought of Charlie Sheen in control of a boom makes me nervous  : )

For now, my acting/modeling is limited due to being 8 months pregnant, still in school, and working 30 hours a week.  This summer, I hope to get back into the acting more, actively seeking roles and such, and modeling with a group that I am part of.

So yah, that is this week's installment of "random tidbits about Nora".  Tune in next time to hear the squirrely details about getting ready to have a kid.  : )
