From Dream Chaser: The Ambitious Adventures of an Up and Coming Actress

I had a great experience as a volunteer at the NAACP Theatre Festival & Awards Show- can't you tell by how hard I'm cheesing in the picture above? :-) My only regret is that since I haven't ordered my business cards just yet I didn't get to network as much as I would have liked. Sure I got the contact info of others and do plan to follow up but "Can I have your card?" began to sound like a broken record pretty quickly so I guess Vistaprint will be receiving an order from me pretty soon. Other than that the events were a success and I plan to participate again next year in one capacity or another. It's actually made me seriously consider joining the Beverly Hills/Hollywood Branch {only $30 per year} where I can serve on the theatre committee. After all, part of my responsibilities will be to view multiple plays & musicals for next year's nominations for free. I'm not sure what the cinema committee entails other than viewing movie screenings {which will be awesome} but I'll be sure to find out about that one as well.

Anyhow, below is a short video from the red carpet. Subscribers can view the video here.
