Wishing all of my family, friends & colleagues the best of the Holidays.

As we gather in celebration let’s remember that the best present we can give each other is to be together sharing joy, laughter and appreciating family and friends that are part of your life no matter what your differences. They are the jewels given to you that are priceless and cannot be replaced. Getting together or touching base, if even just for the holidays is an affirmation of the love and memories you share together. My wish for you all is to take a moment and thank the people around you for being the best present ever with a smile, a kiss or a hug and celebrate each other every day.

To all of you I send love and peace for the Holidays!

Sending you an invite to what I know will be a great New York debut. If you love country music you will love Camille Rae. I was introduced to her music last year and I am now a huge fan. She is an amazing talented singer and songwriter who is making her first appearance in New York. She is not just country she has a voice that can take on Broadway as well. She’ll be performing Tuesday, February 12th at 7:00 pm at the Laurie Beechman Theatre downstairs at the Westbank Cafe. She blew me away and I know she is going to be a star. Come and join me on February 12th. I promise you will have a great time.
Below is the info to get tickets. Hope to see you there!
Happy New Year!

Adios to the Three of Us Studios
On July 31 the Three of Us Studios will be closing. It's a
sad, sad moment to see an institution in our industry close. There are thousands and thousands of bookings that were generated by the talent that waited in those hallways waiting to audition. The best of the best actors guided by the casting directors that have worked there leaves me with joyful memories. We are all so lucky to have worked there during those years. Thank you Joan See and the studio staffs throughout the years that made that place the creative hub of New York. Thank you to all the wonderful actors that made me laugh and cry all those years and to my colleagues that share the floor and reflected true creativity and professionalism. We will miss the Three of Us but she leaves us with great memories.

Yesterday there was a post by an actress talking about self taped auditions and the things that go wrong trying to do it by yourself. In what I felt was her complacent attitude she told her colleagues to have a sense of humor about it.
I really needed to share my thoughts on the issue because so many of my colleagues feel the same way I do. So here it is....
Instead of a sense of humor maybe actors should demand that their unions insist that auditions be done in a professional setting with a casting director who knows how to make your audition look it's best. A professional with insight into what the producers and directors are looking for. Someone who is your champion and believes in you and your ability. Maybe the actors need to focus and concentrate 100% of their skills on acting and giving the best audition possible instead of being director, lighting person, etc. It's not the best way to showcase your talent. It's the producers cheap way of getting actors to tape themselves so they don't need to pay for casting. A sense of humor about doing an unflattering audition is not the way to get jobs. As actors you all need to rethink the process because you have allow producer to take advantage of your fear of not getting the chance to audition. In today's world the attention span to watch auditions has diminished so once you leave a bad impression I can assure you, you will fall to the wayside and not be thought of again. The job of an actor is to give good audition. To leave behind a great impression that will motivate them to either give you the role or at least remember you for the next project. This self taping and self recording is the worst platform for an actor to present themselves. It was suppose to be used on those rare occasions when someone was out of town or geographically unavailable instead it has now become a way to save money on hiring a casting person at the expense of your audition. If you want to to give the best audition possible you need and deserve the right to a professionally run audition where you can apply 100% of your artistry and craft. What's more disturbing is that it's done more to actors of ethnic backgrounds such as Latinos, African Americans, Asian, etc. because you are not necessarily thought of for those major role. It's the perfect way for them to perpetuate the myth that you are not up to the challenge or not as well trained. A homemade audition that they can use to dismiss you plays right into their hands. TALK TO YOUR UNION AND THE UNION REPS THAT MAKE POLICY AND ASK THEM FOR A LEVEL PLAYING FIELD. IT IS THE UNIONS RESPONSIBILITY TO PROTECT YOU THE ACTORS AND GIVE YOU THE BEST CONDITIONS FOR YOU TO PERSUE YOUR CAREER. YOU ARE PROFESSIONALS AND THEREFORE SHOULD BE GIVEN A PROPER WAY TO AUDITION.
Like my colleagues I have given many years to my PROFESSION. Yes, a "profession" that requires many skills and that I take seriously and am very proud of. To see the trend of producers and directors asking actors to self tape and cutting out casting directors is so disrespectful. To see actors and their unions allow it is a huge slap in the face and a disappointment to us and a great disservice to you the actor. No one in the creative process is more of a champion of actors than Casting Directors. We find you, form relationships with you, audition you, direct you, advise you and put ourselves on the line for you. My colleagues and I have been communicating with the union for years about this issue and nothing has ever been done about this disintegration of the audition process. It should be a negotiation item in every contract that auditions must be run and overseen by a casting professional to give talent the best and fairest opportunity to showcase themselves. Even if self taping is needed it should still be supervised by a casting professional.
Some people tell me that the cat is already out of the bag and maybe it is but there is something to be said about the energy that comes into play in the hallway outside an audition room when all the talent is waiting to be seen. The chatter, the running of lines, the meditation, the colleagues wishing each other luck. Being in a room and collaborating with the actor and directing them to get the best takes to send to a director. Having an actor be free to go there 100% and them knowing that the casting director is there to give them the best opportunity to get that role. That's just a few of the things that makes the combination of casting director and talent magic and maybe leads to that ground breaking job. In the end it's about respecting the process and what the professionals bring to the collaboration of every production whether it be commercials, film, TV, voice over, theater and every new performance platform. So there you go I've got it off my chest....and I do have a great sense of humor but not about what I hold most dear. My proud years of work as a professional Casting Director.

that puts all of us on a level playing field !
I was watching an episode of "Fear the Walking Dead" and I noticed there are a number of characters that speak Spanish on the show including Ruben Blades. Then I came across this article and I started thinking, where are these gigs getting cast? I speak Spanish and I'm an actor of a "certain age". I'd be perfect for these roles! Do you guys come across this kinda stuff at all? Here's an excerpt from the article: "Hearing Spanish on some of your favorite English-language TV shows? Don't adjust your TV's language setting. Programs such as the Starz drama "Power," USA's "Graceland" and Lifetime's "Devious Maids" regularly inject Spanish dialogue into scenes — going far beyond simple "holas" and "por favors." Characters sometimes have conversations in Spanish, with and without subtitles. "This is a phenomenon that speaks to a certain comfort with Spanish among the viewing public, especially in cable shows and Netflix shows," said Phillip Carter, an associate professor of English and linguistics at Florida International University. "The fact that there are 40 million Spanish speakers [in the United States], there is a significant part of the viewing public who at least understands Spanish."" Source: http://www.sun-sentinel.com/features/fl-spanish-on-tv-shows-20150713-story.html NOTE: This article is from 2015 and this trend is even more prevalent today with more original shows being developed on more and more networks like Netflix, Amazon, USA etc...
