Just got home after checking out a friend, Lauri Kranz, and her band Snow & Voices playing in Hollywood. For someone like me who does not go out on the town much, it was a great experience. She sounded awesome, the club was nice, and then we went to the very trendy Katsu-ya Hollywood where several of the LA Lakers were rolling in after their NBA playoff game.
Next up. this Thursday, the 21st, we are screening a film, Dreams Play A Part, written and directed by Emma Jones. The project came out of our screenwriting class, where Emma was working on a feature concept. She ended up writing and directing this 30-minute short which serves as the back story for the characters of her feature script.
She cast the movie entirely from her fellow Strasberg students and has put together a strong project. The movie is well-shot, and Emma certainly displays a visual sense that is rare among actors making their first foray into film making. It is particularly exciting to see the film on the big screen after watching clips of it in editing. Should be fun.
More events to come as we have a busy couple of months on the way!
