My Reelity

Is this the reel life or is this just fantasy?

And Then

Posted by Ruok On October - 29 - 2009

I get my first lead role in 2 years.

Its a docudrama again (I might be, as what Jerry had labeled, the docudrama king after all), and I play the role of Lim Boon Keng on a story on how the first Straits Settlement Volunteer Army was formed.

Its not a particularly meaty role, especially when compared to the past lead roles I’ve had and I think the other leading role appears to be more dramatic.

But still its still a leading role and it kinda signals a stop to the slide.

Which brings me to an interesting dilemma…

Keeping The Dream Alive

Posted by Ruok On October - 26 - 2009

Been to a slew of auditions lately.

And just like an athlete who has laid off training for a while, I’ve struggled to find my form due to a very slow and dry acting season thus far.

But thankfully, bit by bit, I’m finding my form and last Wednesday’s audition could perhaps be my best performance thus far this year; although by my own standards, I’m nowhere near top form yet.

The year’s coming to an end and if nothing still comes up, it would confirm that I’m on a slide. Which may well mean I’ll have to push myself off this playground or hop to another swing.

In the meantime, I’ll do all I can to rage against the dying of the light.
