Day 94: Met with the family of the young woman I want to do a documentary about. This meeting went very well and we almost made it through without any tears. Turns out they are already working on a documentary that is in it's infancy stage and if they decide to move forward with me then I will be collaborating with the team they already have in place. I'll be meeting with them again later this week.

Day 95: Mailed my headshot & resume along with a cover letter to 7 managers.

Day 96: Signed with Mavrick Artists Agency! I officially have commercial and print representation now. Another goal I get to cross off my list. :-) Afterwards, I had my second documentary meeting today. What was supposed to be a 1 hour meeting turned into 4 hours in the blink of an eye. Though I still need to sign paperwork to make it official, I've been verbally invited to join the production of this film. Words cannot even begin to express how thankful/excited/fired-up I am to be a part of this!!!

Day 97: Watched the documentary You Saved Me about black marriage and its' benefits. It provided a great launching pad for discussion with the ladies that I watched it with but unfortunately it felt like it was one-dimensional and lacked varying perspectives.

    Thanks T! Girl you know I made Stephen take me out to celebrate cause it's been a long time coming. :-)

  3. Congratulations on the new representation! Your hustle eternally inspires. Got some good news of my own!

    In another, possibly related note: how do you deal with bookings that intimidate you? As in "everyone else in this project has more impressive resume than I do. Am I sure they didn't make a mistake?" Losing confidence at the worst time possible :(

    Liz, I haven't booked anything where I'm working closely with actors who have a longer IMDb page than me just yet but I'm sure when the time comes that it will be humbling. Don't lose confidence just remind yourself that you were chosen for a reason and there's no one in the world who can offer your character what YOU can! Congratulations on your booking!
