ACTORS: DIY

are you listening?

Just saw RUBY SPARKS – so honest, deep, true and a little tough when you’re not quite ready for it. The show-stopping risky scene toward the end made me go WHOA big time. Not surprisingly, Zoe Kazan wrote her great scene herself.  She wrote and produced this little Fox Searchlight gem with her BF Paul Dano, who starred in it with her. How ROMANTIC! How PROACTIVE! How GENIOUS!

Directing DESTINY –

Actors (especially YOUNG CREATIVE WOMEN Actors-turned-MULTI-HYPHENATES) have started putting their destiny into their own hands. It seems like it’s the only way to keep from being a puppet, waiting for someone to pull strings.

Next weekend Rashinda Jones’ CELESTE AND JESSE FOREVER  is being released. Jones co-wrote, produced and (incidentally) is starring in it – destiny in her own hands…

Krysten Ritter did it with LIFE HAPPENS.
Maybe we should all make our own —

  • LIVES HAPPEN
  • CAREERS HAPPEN
  • HAPPINESS HAPPEN.

If this is a trend,
I LIKE it.
I want to LEARN from it.
I want to TRY IT!
