As Thanksgiving Day rolls around,
It brings up some facts, quite profound.
We may think that we’re poor,
Feel like bums, insecure,
But in truth, our riches astound.
We have friends and family we love;
We have guidance from heaven above.
We have so much more
Than they sell in a store,
We’re wealthy, when push comes to shove.
So add up your blessings, I say;
Make Thanksgiving last more than a day.
Enjoy what you’ve got;
Realize it’s a lot,
And you’ll make all your cares go away.

Well, it happened again last night. Another bad dream. This time I found myself unable to get out of the locked dressing room to make a stage entrance. Despite pulling on the door, trying to climb out the window, yelling at the top of my lungs, I could not get rescued from my dressing room prison. What made it even worse, I could not tell from my costume what play I was in. So even if I did break out, I just had to “wing it” when I eventually got to the stage. It was one of those nightmares that felt so real, it took me several awake minutes to realize that it was just a dream. Other actor dreams I have heard about (and even experienced myself) include making an entrance and not knowing the part, making an entrance and being completely naked, showing up and realizing there is no audience. Psychologists would have no problem figuring these episodes out. I am sure they are metaphors for feeling unprepared, vulnerable, scared. Because it feels so real is probably due to the actor’s imagination being so fertile. When I have these kinds of experiences, I tell myself to analyze at what I need to work on. Usually unfinished business or not being ready for a task or event. For an actor it seems to reflect the need for preparation of some sort. Because we are frequently between jobs, it is easy to let go of our important actor tasks. By taking classes, meeting with your agent, reviewing your resume, getting advice from your career coach, you are, in fact, preventing the nightmare in the first place. You are now doing everything you can to release yourself from the grips of the unprepared actor and embracing professionalism.

With tvi’s headshot event taking place on November 7th, I thought it might be a good idea to have a few questions to ask. With over 15 of New York’s top headshot talent under one roof, being prepared by knowing what to ask is essential. Here are a few to consider:
1) Shoot in studio or on location?
2) How many rolls of film or digital shots are included in the price?
3) How many changes or looks are usually done?
4) How long after the shoot do I see the proofs?
5) How long do photo sessions usually run?
6) Is re-touching included in the print fee?
7) What happens if I am not happy with the results?-
Hope this helps! I look forward to meeting you at this cool free event…did I say free? Give tvi a call for reservations!
