I am a busy actress at the moment. I have lots of things going on right now. I am going to start my Script Writing and Directing for Film & TV classes within 1-2 weeks from now. Then, I also plan to go to acting & accent classes as well in the very near future. I want to be a working actress. So I need to improve my acting skills. I learn acting skills on set. But it’s not enough, I think. I need to attend an actual acting class to learn the right techniques and get some feedback from the tutor and fellow classmates.
Tomorrow, I’m also going to attend a dancing class again. I go to dancing class, martial arts workshop, work on my own feature film, and so on at the moment. Every day, there’s something to do. But, I like it. I like being busy doing what I’m passionate about, film, dancing, and keeping myself in good form. So, I go to dancing and martial arts classes mainly just to exercise. As I said before, I don’t like going to the gym. If I want to have a toned body, then I do dancing and martial arts activities instead. But then, I want to add some new skills to my resume as well. So the dancing and martial arts classes do benefit me in so many levels, which is a good thing.
After work today (yes, I do have a normal job, too, when I don’t do filming), I will go buy new workout outfits for my dancing class tomorrow. I have some t-shirts and shorts at home. But, they are not proper fitness clothing. So I need to buy new, real ones. I look very much forward to dancing again tomorrow. I love the movements of dance. They are so beautiful! I can be myself in that moments, expressing myself creatively, letting go, and just enjoying life to the fullest.
Sometimes, I like watching movie that is not so far from our everyday life. A film that portrays a true side of life which many of us oversee, or choose to ignore it, to make us feel better. Life is an interesting thing in itself. And that’s why, I like telling stories and wanting to become a filmmaker. I have a strong interest in the study of people and life. And I enjoy watching films in all genres, as long as it’s good and gives me something to reflect on. Like this film, “Dreams of A Life.” It’s a based-on-true-story British film. It’s a documentary film. No well-known stars, no special effects, no nothing. Just the pure story of a woman who died alone in a bedsit somewhere in London. Nobody cared or missed her – just like that?! I have never seen anything like this. That someone dies and no one comes and looks for the person for so many years? How can someone live a life without any contact to other human beings? I mean, a genuine contact, like family and real friends. She lived in a big capital, London, not in a jungle. It shows, how tough big cities can be. And that this is the reality that we try to run away from. I really recommend everyone to watch this movie, to see for yourself what I mean. Enjoy!
Today, I make a long video which I speak Danish. To be honest, I haven’t spoken Danish since I moved to UK for about 7-8 years ago. As you can hear in the clip, I speak broken Danish. But, as soon as I get a chance to speak with a Danish person, I will begin to speak fluently Danish again. I have the same problem with Thai language. Some Thai people even ask me when they hear me speak Thai, are you really from Thailand? I can still read and write Thai and Danish as well. It’s the same with everything. If you haven’t practised it for a very long while, you can’t do it as good as you’re used to. Just listen to me speak Danish in the clip below. Enjoy!
I will be creating a film page for my new feature film on IMDb, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram soon. So, keep an eye on my blog for the announcement of my film pages on those sites, which you can follow to keep yourself up-to-date with it. And those who work on my film project will receive a footage of the film and IMDb credit. Therefore, it will be an unpaid job. But the filming period will be very short. Maybe about 2 weeks only. And we will be filming in central London. So only actors that live in London may apply. Others who do not live in London can also apply. But you will have to pay travel costs from your own pocket. So only apply if you’re ok with it. I will submit my film to as many film festivals as possible as well. I will do lots of things in advance to promote the film. So this is an excellent exposure that is very important to all aspiring actors – to be seen and noticed. I am so excited that I can’t wait to start filming! And at the same time, I’m also very busy myself doing filming for others. So I work on my own film whenever I have time from other films. And that’s why I start now. Otherwise, I don’t know when I will have time to begin. And I also have to buy a tripod and some other equipment for my mobile phone for the filming. Then I will do some exercises myself how to film using my mobile phone and tripod. I could film myself doing the dancing class. Yes, why not? I will make sure I buy a tripod first then, before I attend my next dancing class. This is going to be super awesome filming a feature film using a smartphone. I can’t wait!
I have never made a real film on a smartphone before, except YouTube videos. So I think, it’s going to be fun, experimenting with its features, functions, abilities, and so on. It’s a new way to go nowadays for low-budget filmmakers, I think. It’s an incredible alternative. I’m also going to enroll in Directing for Film & TV class as well. It will start next month. So I will be directing, producing, writing the film script, and, perhaps, acting in the film, too. Every day from now on, it’s about planning, doing some researches, preparing to submit the film to film festivals, looking for actors, film crew, and many more. When I have everything in place, then I can relax and just focus on film making. I have a strong passion for film. So all that hard work and working alone ahead doesn’t intimidate me. I like challenges. Challenge is fun. It makes me feel alive. And that the world is an exciting place to live. It’s full of life, energy, opportunity, possibility, and more.

I will spend my day today planning and plotting my first feature film, eventually. I’m looking to shoot the film as soon as possible using my mobile phone! It’s an experiment. But also, I have to start now. If I wait for too long that day will never come, perhaps. I think, it’s a matter of getting it off the ground as soon as possible. Why wait when I can do it now? So today, I will spend time finishing up my manuscript, planning the film, locations, looking for actors, film crew, and more. It’s going to be fun and exciting project. I can feel it. It’s a low-budget film that could be good. If not, I don’t really mind since I have not spent a fortune on it. I can only gain experience and knowledge out of it. It’s a win-win project. Everyone involves in it will get something out of it, regardless of the film will become successful or not. And everyone will get a copy of the film to use as their showreel.
It will be a romantic comedy or just romance feature film. It will be filmed in and around London. I have already some locations in mind. When I think of it, it starts to sound more and more interesting and exciting. My dream is getting close to reality now, finally. I feel so confident about it that this is going to be epic! I will combine my experience from the film school in Denmark with my experience working as a supporting artiste for 12-13 years. They are knowledge and skills that I already possess. I don’t really need to go to school for it. So the next step is to do it NOW! The sooner I start, the better. I feel so much better now that I have, at long last, made up my mind about it. No more speculating, pondering, and waiting. Just do it. And do it now. I have been looking forward to the day that I start making my own feature film. And that is today.
I went to South Thames College this morning to enroll in film making class. I thought I missed one day of the class since it supposed to start last Friday. But it turned out, I didn’t miss a thing. The workshop was being cancelled due to not enough students. The class will begin again this September. I hope, this time, it will have enough students. So I can attend the course. I did make this vlog before I went into the college. I told myself to make another one about the class being cancelled when I come out of the college. Then I forgot.
I worked on my manuscript all night long last night. I also supposed to do the music video shoot today. But it’s being postponed. And that’s why I worked on my screenplay the whole night last night. I don’t think I will be working on it again tonight. I’m so tired. I will go to bed early today. Then get up early tomorrow and start writing as soon as I stand up. I prefer writing in the morning now since I feel so fresh and full of energy in the morning. As the day goes by, I feel less and less active. When I say early, I mean pretty early. I sometimes go to bed 8pm or even 6pm, if I have early call time for the filming. Let’s see how early I want to go to bed today. I might take a nap now. Then wake up later to work on my film script anyway.
I like taking selfies and post it on my site, instagram, facebook, twitter, etc. I like posting my current photos as often as possible. So people can see how I look daily in different outfits with or without makeup: Casual, formal, party dress, hippy, rock chic, and more. It’s fun, and at the same time useful for my acting agencies as well – to see me in possible characters, looks, locations, and so on. I also make vlogs as often as I can and post it on my YouTube channel. So people can see me talk, my lifestyle, skills, personality, attitude, and the like. I do it mainly just for fun. But it also updates people automatically how I look now, talk, live, etc. I haven’t made a vlog for almost a week now, busy filming. Next one I’m going to make, I think, I will do Danish speaking again. It will be a long one this time. I did make one before. But it’s a short one, just saying my name, how long I have been living in UK, why I moved to London, and that it. This time, I will talk longer, telling about my life in London, work, dreams, and so forth.
One day, I will stand behind the camera, producing & directing films with my own screenplays. I will still be an actress, though. But, working behind the scenes is also very interesting and rewarding. To put the whole story together in a new medium, from manuscript to movie, with others who share the same interests is exciting and fun. Everyone has their own duty they have to take care of. Then when the project is done, we can see everybody’s contribution come to life. It’s all about teamwork. We can’t make a movie with a good collaboration. I remember when I made student films during my time at technical college in Copenhagen, Denmark (I’ve studied film & communication there), there’s one guy in our group he’s very good at editing the films. He subtly put all the special effects together. So when our group watched the film together, we could barely recognize that’s the same film we were making together. The final result was almost too perfect. And we’re just newly started film students. So we said to ourselves, did we make that short film together? So, everybody has a paramount part in the project. There’s no role is too small and unimportant. It’s a job that requires you to socialize and interact with others a lot. And I like meeting new people and challenges. So, it seems sensible enough that this is my career choice.
I have to go enroll in film making class today. It already started last week. But I was busy doing the filming, so I couldn’t go to the college to enroll. I hope it’s not too late to enroll now since it’s only one day that I missed the class. Then next month, I will start a Script Writhing and Directing For Film and TV workshops as well at the same college. I look forward to returning to the film making again. This is where I want to be.
When I have something good and inspiring I share. I can’t keep it for myself. I have just read about Sylvester Stallone, about how he, against all odds, got his breakthrough in Hollywood, how he kept fighting and fighting until he could make his dreams come true as an actor, screenwriter, and director. It’s a very interesting and motivating story that will, more or less, inspire many, especially aspiring actors / screenwriters, like me. That’s for sure! If not, then I don’t know what. After reading his story, I felt much better about myself. That as long as I keep fighting and not giving up on my dreams I WILL succeed one day. But at the same time, I felt like an idiot because I have given up several times. And I haven’t even been through so much like him. But him, who has been through so much, if I were him I would give up already, managed to make his dreams come true, at long last. Isn’t it amazing? Now I know, when I feel like giving up or something like that, I will re-read his story again and again, to keep fighting. Now I know what I will spend the rest of the evening for, writing my film script as much as I can. I have coffee and cake enough for the whole evening.
You can read the whole story here. Whoever the first person that wrote this story, I can’t thank you enough.
All about being persistent. Your success is in your hands!
Now I am being inspired to write and write till I drop.
I love dancing. So every day, I watch lots of music videos that contain dance – to study different dance styles. I like music as well. So dancing along with good music, is one of the most enjoyable things I love doing. Every time I have to begin to dance, I feel so excited. No matter how hard and difficult the dance is, I will do my best. It’s like a therapy as well. I dance my problems away. Music & dance are the best cure you can get for free! I feel so happy after having been dancing and listening to music. And I feel so alive talking about dancing and music. Enjoy Justin Bieber music video, “Sorry”, below:
