There are some people in the world that miss out on opportunities, because they can’t be bothered going through with it, or they are too lazy, or they just decide not to. Then later someone always tells you that you missed out on an amazing opportunity. Well what happens when you aren’t given the opportunity in the first place.
Everybody needs a chance to prove them self, but when that opportunity doesn’t arise, what are you meant to do. Unfortunately you just have to keep moving. Life moves on, as they say, nevertheless it doesn’t hurt any less.
In my own personal experience, which is the reason why I am passing on this knowledge of mine, is that I missed out on the role that I wanted in my school musical of Oliver
I was hoping for the role of Fagin, the leader of the pick-pockets. Instead I was given Noah Claypole, the assistant of the undertaker, Mr Sowerberry. I have just finished performing in a stage version of Oliver Twist, and I also played Noah in that production. It would appear that the role is following me everywhere. My dad reckons that I should pull out and audition for other shows around Perth. But following the saying “There is no such thing as a small role, only small actors” I won’t pull out and stick with the show anyway.
One day I may get the opportunity to prove myself on the stage, and show that I am actually capable of performing a lead role. Unfortunately that day isn’t today, but one day I will get the opportunity. And in a true acting style, I will rub it in the face of those who kept oppressing me.
Just kidding :)
Acting is what my life is all about. There may be many people in the world who are a lot more committed, however I still love it. I have just recently completed acting in a play with the Harbour Theatre company in Fremantle, Western Australia.
Other than that, I haven’t really performed outside of school. Back when I lived in Melbourne, I would participate in a Summer School with the Melbourne Theatre Company. Every year I would go to their head quarters for a week and participate in acting workshops and then put on a show at the end of the week. For most of the years I had the same two instructors, who I owe a lot of my acting credit to. They are Kirsten Von Bibra and Kurt Geyer. For many years I would see them and I was remembered every time. This would possibly be because I was, I believe one of the only few people to attend every year. I know this because I would make many friends, but they wouldn’t be there the next year.
When I am older, I hope that I can be a fully acknowledged actor and well know. This is because I believe that I can indeed act. I have performed in school musicals, playing a Sailor, Minister Henry T Dobson and An Old Lady in a Wheelchair (all from Cole Porter’s Anything Goes). I also have an upcoming school musical with Corpus Christi College of Oliver! At this time I don’t know what role I am playing, as it is still being decided upon by the Arts staff.
When I become a well known actor, I will be sure to let you know :) And I can give you all autographs :)
There are many things in life that I constantly change my mind on. I change me views on people, on actions, on political situations, on music. However there are also some things that I don’t change my mind about. One of which is my morales. Ferris Bueller summed one of them up in the above quote, at least the ending of it. “He should believe in himself”
A majority of the world believe in a religion. Some of the most common is Christianity, Islam, Judaism and Buddhism. However I find the constraints of religion are so tight, that it is hard to hold a personal view. For that reason I take little bits from certain religions and form my own beliefs.
I don’t believe in a typical God, but a supreme being that started us all. There must have been some force that started us off, but since then, has just been happy idly sitting by watching us prosper and suffer.
A lot of people in the world define themselves by these religions. However these religions aren’t their values, but values that have been passed down over the centuries. This being they are believing in an ism.
People need to set down their own values and principles in life, and not just follow those that are their parents, and other generations. One of my personal beliefs is that if everyone ditched religion, praised their own God in their own way, and lived by their own values, we could avoid a lot of war and pointless death.
This is a blog for my personal use, but also for my personal film company Barking Cat Studios. For the most it will be my personal blog, because BCS is going through a rather slow period. Another reason for the creation of this blog, is that my father suggested I start one. This is meant to be able to help my writing skills improve and such, and make be a better person :P
Lastly the first blog I have really looked at is Nicole’s (mud and bone). Mine will never be as awesome as hers, but I can still try.
P.S Another friend of mine, Mitch has an awesome blog as well :) (An artist uses lies to tell the truth)
