Superwoman

Superwoman 1 Superwoman

With less than 48 hours before show number 16 of 18 was to perform in front of a paying audience I was contacted by the Theatre Play with regards to taking over the part of an actor who had sustained an injury.

After having changed shifts at my “bread and butter” job I showed up at the theatre and rehearsed for a solid 8 hours, where I’d done all I could to memorize the lines beforehand and then played in the performance, so it didn’t have to be cancelled for its last three sold out shows.

A tough assignment, but very satisfying to complete!

The pseudo sequel to my first “That’s One Take On It”, where I used the feedback from the viewers of the first film, then changed the concept and tweaked the story, hence, making it more clear cut. I acted as director, scriptwriter, producer, caster and main lead in the short film/demo reel that aims to show my skills in acting and stunt work as well.
