LET'S TYPECAST

Tuesday, December 17


Today I went to an awesome on-camera workshop at Second City led by Matt Miller. It's been awhile since I've done any on-camera work so wanted to freshen up my chops. And wow, so much freshening was needed. The crazy thing about on-camera work is that EVERYTHING is picked up by the camera -- the annoying eye twitch, the awkwardly pursed lips, the shiny forehead. It's all right there for everyone and their aunts to see. Yikes.

The most entertaining activities we did throughout the day was fill out forms on each of the others in the class based on our first impressions. We were all relative strangers so were able to answer truthfully. One of the first comments I received during the class was "wow you look like you're fourteen!"... I turn twenty-three in January...

The stack of forms written about me remains untouched {and turned upside down} on my living room table, but it's time to turn them over. And I've decided to share them with you -- the good and the bad and the what the heck -- entirely unedited. Ones that I got more than once are bolded with the number of times, and not all of the categories got all eleven responses.

Now you don't even need to meet me! You have first impressions right here :)
