I Finally Peeled a Wrapper Off A New New York Seltzer Bottle!

Waaaaayyyyyy back in July of 2015 I received a gift from the people over at Original New York Seltzer. They responded to a blog I wrote about how the Black Cherry soda was the first new drink I had when we moved to California. It was very nice of them and I made a video about it that you can see here:

I talked about the foam wrappers in that video and how fun they were to pull off. Now, nearly two years later, I have finally done it and I put it on video for you all to see!

This, this, all the this!

If you are a creative, this video will sounds very familiar – but it’s a universal message. Lord knows I’ve been down this road a few times. Determination, persistence and touch of naivete is usually enough to win the day – it’s just the “day” in question usually lasts for years.

Day 430 Operation: Television’s Curtis Andersen – Phase 2 & Your Headshots

Happy New Year!

If you didn’t see my last video, I was able to achieve the primary goal of booking a job on TV at the end of the year! In case you missed it, here it is:

The show is a new show that has an NDA the length of my arm so I can’t say a bloody thing about it, but I promise I won’t shut up about it once I can. So now that I can unironically call myself “Television’s Curtis Andersen” again it’s time to move on to Phase 2 – getting on a genre show! What’s a genre show? Watch the new video to find out.

Also, to add a little actual advice to this blog after a long stretch of just me talking about myself and auditions, I talk a little bit about the importance of getting a good headshot – because I’ve seen a lot of BAD headshots lately.

Operation: Television’s Curtis Andersen Day 403

I actually booked on Day 400 (which was kinda’ neat in a numbers way) but I’m superstitious so I didn’t want to say anything until the shoot was complete. The primary objective has been achieved before the end of the year! Now begins Phase 2 – Operation: Genre Show!

First Anniversary of Operation: Television’s Curtis Andersen

Op TVs CA Explosion Opener

It is November 2nd, officially one year ago today I made the deliberate decision that I was going to get myself back on TV again. It was a re-energizing of my commitment to what has always been my primary career and it lit a fire under my ass to take the steps that I really should have taken a while ago.

A lot has happened this year, which I talk about more in the video, but these are the two big points that I came away with after I thought about the past year:

  1. I have not yet accomplished the goal.
  2. I really want to be on a genre show.

Check out the video for all the details!

Happy Halloween!

via GIPHY

Happy Halloween!

This is my favorite time of year, not just because of Halloween and all of  the fun, spooky stuff that goes along with that, but because of autumn and change of seasons. I like cool, wet weather (and somehow I live in California) and being able to wear pants and sweaters comfortably. I’m also a big fan of pumpkin products (before it was cool) and manage to go Gold at Starbucks at this time each year on #PSLs.

The wife and I have made a few videos about the fall. One of them a commentary on the typical weather we get here in October in California and another a horror short that we made for Fun Size Horror back in 2014. so as a video treat for Halloween here are Part of the Fall and Bloody Mary.

Rock the Vote #1stVote16 Tag

My buddy Jeff Garvin tagged me in the #1stVote16 tag to help encourage first time voters to get registered and vote this election and I couldn’t be happier to participate! There is a lot of cynicism wrapped up in this election season but that is no reason not to participate. In fact, if anything, it’s even more of a reason to participate. I started voting back when Rock the Vote first came into being. I still remember watching the commercials on MTV back in the day. It was exciting and it felt like a big deal. It felt empowering. For the first time in my life it felt like the “grown-ups” actually cared about what I thought, and they all desperately wanted my vote for whatever they cared about. Although I may have complaints about how the presidential election process happens, there is SO MUCH MORE to vote on this November! Important, important things! 88% of congress is up for re-election – THAT’S HUGE! California as a state has 17 statewide ballot proposals to vote on, and it’s big stuff like marijuana legalization and the death penalty, not including all the local initiatives – and local initiatives are important, just ask John Oliver.

All of this is to say that you should register, get informed, and vote. It’s important, it counts, and it’s your duty as a citizen. Here’s my video:
