Lights, Camera, ACTION!
I can’t remember a time in my life when I wasn’t enthralled with the silver screen. I really didn’t care what was playing, I just wanted to study movies. I loved analyzing every detail surrounding the storytelling, and to me motion pictures were a way to escape the cold, dreary winters of my suburban New Jersey childhood. I had never been,but my earliest memories are of me daydreaming about one day living in California. I convinced myself the land of glitz, glam, and award acceptance speeches was my destiny.
Let me be clear, this went a bit farther than just becoming famous, I fell madly in love with characters. The people they *pretended* to be, those are the people I wanted to surround myself with. The actors and actresses felt more like a peer than a movie star. I wanted to be with the creatives, those whom directed, and made the films come to life. I desperately wanted to be a part of the action as a child, but I never dared to vocalize these dreams out loud. Instead, I would absorb every second of the picture going corner to corner noticing angles, nuances, backgrounds, extras, and most of all what the characters were wearing and the soundtrack. The music tends to fades into the film within moments, and weaves itself in and out until a point where it vanishes completely. Many don’t even hear it, but I do. And I can definitely feel it. Decades later, when I hear the first few keys of the “Theme from Arthur,” on the yacht rock station and I’m happy. I hope nothing ever erases that.
Hooray for Hollywood?
I eventually moved to California, but I skipped over the Hollywood hubbub and landed myself at the beach doing work for rock stars. Eventually, I fell in love, got married, had a baby, started a blog, and I’m now obsessed with Netflix. Then something I never thought would happen happened. Kiddo expressed a genuine interest in theater and asked if she could take a class. I enrolled my daughter at South Coast Repertory two years ago, and I’m pleased to share she has a love for live performances! This January we’re headed to The Great White Way for for a “Playbill Tour” to celebrate her 11th birthday.
Red Carpet Premiere Experience
But let’s face it, beyon a weekly class I would royally stink at being a stereotypical Hollywood Mom. Auditions, head shots, and castings are not my thang, but I can do a fab job at being Fun Mom. I’m constantly on the hunt for new and creative things to do that out-of-the-box, exciting, and has a way of incorporating my daughter’s life interests. I mean, c’mon, this entire blog is centered around things we love, and I’m pretty sure I just found the next big thing.
So why not give her a chance to be a big star for the day? Sure, she’s been around her share of celebs, but what about stepping in their shoes for an afternoon? That’s where Red Carpet Premiere Experience comes into play.
