Happy Birthday to Us
by Dana Morris
Happy birthday to us, happy birthday to us! Happy birthday Austin Actors Network, happy birthday to us! Okay, maybe the rythim was a bit off there, but we sure had a great time at our February meeting! Thats right, Austin we are 1 year old! Hard to believe isnt it? What started out as a great idea has turned into a rapidly growing well-oiled machine! What a great place to network, share ideas and just check out whats going on and a lot of you are with around 18,000 hits so far! Whew!
Well, of course for our birthday we didnt want to work that hard, so we did our usual round of intros and announcements, with a few new and welcome faces in our bunch. We had actors, production people, casting directors, writers, teachers and directors there. Several classes were announced and we talked about what we were involved in.
We found out that one of our very own favorite people, Helen Griffiths, does great demo reels, and we watched hers, as well. Any of you actors out there who are thinking about putting together that reel, give her a try. Great quality and reasonable prices.
We also saw another side of Step Rowe, one of our actors. Did you read the article about lesbian musical theatre? Well, we SAW it and it was fantastic! Sassy!
Thats right, bring your stuff and as always well screen it in our screening room! We love to see other artists work and we are there to support each other!
At the bottom of this list is a partial attendance sheet if youre not listed you didnt sign.
Thats it for the February meeting we will probably accomplish a little more at the next one unless we decide not to do anything but have fun again. Remember our agenda is to have no agenda just discuss what we want to talk about when the time comes.
See you next month!
