Op TVs CA Explosion Opener

We have reached the six month mark on Operation: Television’s Curtis Andersen! And what a way to mark the moment! We were at the 48 hour Film Project Best of L.A. screening tonight where the short Rene and I were in, Awake, was nominated for three awards: Best Use of Character, Best Practical Effects, and Best Costume Design. We won for best practical effects and you’ll see why when we can post the video next week. Here’s a video I took at the event to mark making it to 6 months on this project.

Next step: booking a TV show.

Taking a break from my normal “Operation: Television’s Curtis Andersen,”¬†here is some cool Iron Man stuff. The folks over at Burger Fiction have put together a very comprehensive video of Iron Man’s appearances in TV and film since his inception back in 1963. With Civil War only a couple weeks away, this is a cool visual of how far the Iron Avenger has come over the last 50 years.

Check out all the armor suited action!

Day 149 Operation: Television’s Curtis Andersen

I have been VERY bad at keeping up with my vlogs on my progress with Operation: Television’s Curtis Andersen and that is mostly because I haven’t felt like I’ve made a lot of progress. so I made a video about my frustration about not feeling like I’ve made much progress.

And, in case you want to see me in more optimistic times see the playlists down below:

Day 100 Operation: Television’s Curtis Andersen

Op TVs CA Explosion Opener

We have reached a milestone! I’m 100 days into my efforts to get myself back on Television screens so, like the president does after 100 days in office, I’m going to review my accomplishments and talk about the road moving forward. This has been a very exciting time and keeping the pressure on myself, in the form of these blog posts and the videos on my YouTube channel, have kept me from letting myself get lax or letting my focus drift too far.

Due to the fact that I have been working all day today I’m going to have to let the video speak for me.

Actor 101 – Get the Suck Out

Actor 101 Logo

There is a phrase that is a big part of my personal philosophy:

Get the suck out.

I stand by it, I practice it, and I throw it around freely regardless of situation or the people involved. It’s a relatively simple principal – if you are doing something allow yourself the time and space to get the suck out before you expect to be good at it. There’s an older phrase that essentially means the same thing, practice makes perfect, but get the suck out is more immediate.

I tried to make a video about it:

I’m still actually having trouble articulating exactly why this is so important – so maybe I’ll try to do a follow-up?

Still, my advice remains the same – give yourself permission to get the suck out. It doesn’t hurt to have to try something more than once.
