If ever a movie changed my life auspiciously, of course it would be another @SimianTukel flick, of course filmed on my 2020 birthday, and somehow right at home during #quarantine. --
#ScenesFromAnEmptyChurch put the one-and-only @Max.Casella in my life (or rather in person, as he’s now been briefed on that he was certainly married to my neighbor Emily when she was nine and we watched #Newsies every day at least once for an embarrassing amount of months making it the only VHS I owned after being gifted it on my then-birthday so many years prior)… What companions we’ve been since. That life-imitating-art, art-imitating-life churn. Love you to the moon, Maximilian, King of #NewYork.
To movies!
To gleaned quarantine joys!
To the West Village!
To your vehemently socialist opinions.
To unexpected pairs.
To Onur.
To us! 🥂

To you’s-at-large streaming ‘Scenes From An Empty Church’ on every dang platform.

Onur Tukel champions the anti-establishment #independentfilm scene in #Brooklyn by consistently pumping out script after script on seemingly every issue and controversy. White men specifically being the central antagonists who ultimately get overrun is certainly refreshing. Not to mention that this footage has morphed over the last three years from being a feature to an episodic pilot series to again a feature. He’s a master editor and every time I see a version of this, I’m a different character in proximity. Happy to see this new #trailer publish on #Juneteenth, as its central theme of rampant #gentrification is a reminder of how wildly far we have to go, even while celebrating how far we’ve come.
.
And as a sidenote and coincidence to the timing of this trailer release, I am again tomorrow (after obviously quite the pause) filming with a masked skeleton crew perhaps the most fiercely biting #political scene of my life thusfar, written/directed by Onur, opposite an actor I’ve utterly adored since 1992, on none other than my golden birthday. What a gift. ✨🎥✨

When the young white construction worker is holding a sign that lightly says ‘howdy’ next to a lengthy page of words - that was outside a #soulfood restaurant during lunch hour in #Memphis, and the demands were written by a Black man inside unwilling to be on camera for fear of ________. The construction worker just wanted to be “on TV,” so I asked him to hold the sign instead. The Black man is a vehement voter, but wondered of his votes have ever been justly counted, and the white construction worker had (legitimately) never heard of Obama nor Trump. The description his coworker used to describe the two names to him made it at least satisfying that they didn’t understand their sign-holding favor.
We had quite the interaction.

Having been cast in 1969 a total of seven times thusfar, this being the 50th anniversary of a lot of American change has brought up my own version of fabricated nostalgia.
In @DamonChua’s ‘1969: A Fantastical Odyssey Through The American Mindscape’, eleven actors played 56 characters, and I was the only one to co-flub a ferocious costume change: my fully clothed and wigged conservative af anthem-singing, religion-pushing, gets-pied-in-the-face-on-television-for-her-homophobic-bigotry Anita Bryant was secured in place moments before my naked hippie Adam-and-Eve dance-on. They just let the CCR interlude play an extra umpteen bars for me to strip down again. Cheers for the easiest possible undo. 🤷🏼‍♀️🎭🤘🏻

Do you know anyone on the newer end of a session career who’d be interested in filling in for a weekend of Shakespeare shows for SoHoShakes’ female-bent adaptation of MacBeth? (This season is their first as a company, and/but they can offer a $150 stipend and their utmost gratitude.✨)

Did you know it’s International Women in Science Day?
.
While I can’t claim much in the way of being scientifically minded myself (beyond an occasionally socially-debilitating #awareness of social sciences; brains and behavioral patterns), I revel in any chance to claim any involvement in the #discoveries and headway of others, whether being cheerleader to those shaping the planet, or player of fictitious #apocalyptic scenarios written by soothsaying #women rooted in #research and #scientific #hypotheses that make audiences pay #attention to prevalent issues.
.
The first slide here is from a female #writer and #femaledirector’s #film taking place a hundred years from now, when the dwindling #planet is #militant, mostly concrete, and disease ridden, meaning people must live quarantined on their own. I’m breaking into a high-security #science #lab to steal a vile of #medicine that is only available to an echelon of the very #wealthy.
(And actually now seeing I have a plethora of #filmstills from #films that are science-based, I may carry it out as a theme this week?)
.
Similarly, my favorite #script of this year that would (indulgently) allow me the chance to play my own #NASA-#scientist twin(s) is written by @AmyRBerryman, takes place in the graspable future, examines #environmental and familial degradation and the increasing gini-coefficient of the class system in studied terms made colloquial and visible, and is named #WALDEN for the then-nostalgic #WaldenPond that is very much already #nostalgic for me in these present years.
...Hence the rest of the otherwise unrelated slides.

GROUP SCENE STUDY

LOS ANGELES!

From wonderful friend and fellow acting coach, Shae D'lyn:

"I'm starting a new scene study class in LA with a focus on character development. The new series and films are heavily leaning toward fantasy and high theatrics. WESTWORLD, GAME OF THRONES, THE BALLAD OF BUSTER SCRUGGS, SORRY TO BOTHER YOU, AQUAMAN, on and on, all have very theatrical characters, especially in the supporting roles, and the old "just be you" style isn't going to work for these grand pieces.

I believe you can set yourself up nicely by becoming adept at finding the archetypes of your characters and leaning into them. This helps you understand their motives and the idiosyncrasies which make them more powerful vehicles for telling the story. Then you apply physical and animal and, what I've termed character within character, work which frees you to explore the extremities of the behaviors which best illustrate your drives and instincts. It's good fun.

The first four-week workshop session begins Thursday, January 24th, from 7-10:30 pm. You may register for the class here

Write or call me with any questions.

Looking forward to working together!

Shae D'lyn"

That Halloween is next week has not occurred to me, ‘cause this is just the day before filming the music vid for The Hollows’ “The Ballad of Jack & Vi”, a fictitious #murderballad Danny wrote/sings for his grandparents...The real life Jack has passed, but Vi’s turning 90 in November, so we’ll bring the projector to Michigan and I’ll hope she thinks I did okay.

On why and how #NewYork has the worst #voter turnout and #voting #laws of any #state (excepting Oklahoma and West Virginia), Susan Lerner speaks well to the #DailyIntelligencer and the #NYTimes has a comprehensive piece called ‘Make Voting Easier in New York’...
.
While there aren’t any #statistics for yesterday, TWELVE PERCENT of registered #voters turned up last time for #theprimaries, and an iota of the population is registered at all.
.
I’m apt to talk to folks on the street, and often record them; I’ll be publishing a handful of music videos throughout the year under the #GetWithItProject.
.
I came home from the empty polls yesterday and made t-shirts with loud, simple slogans that tell anyone walking near those donning on voting day to vote, as well as when the last day is to register (four options of slogan, front and back in four languages, for the different days). Link to come once generated!
.
Also:
I made a rickety PSA with my iPhone (and extreme “PSA” voice?🙈) when support for Trump had risen to 47% in 2016, and folks were still passing him off as a bad joke.
#Politics being faux pas as a subject in any circle, whether with friends, family or #strangers has gotta be a thing o’ the past, yah?
