Dear Birdhouse Family,
I just got back from shooting a TV pilot! It was for a show that used to be called FRESH OFF THE BOAT but the name may change now. Anyway I wanted to let you guys know that I don't think I would have gotten the role if it wasn't for the chance to do WEST SIDE STORY because I learned so much from everyone. I wanted to thank Rana and all of you, and share what it was like shooting a TV show. The actual shoot took nine days but I ended up being in LA for almost three weeks because I was screen testing...and by the time they decided they wanted me to do it, the shoot began right away. It was amazing and even if it doesn't get picked up, which we'll find out in May, I really learned a lot and was glad I did it. This is an essay I wrote about the experience for my class! I wanted to share it with you guys too. Also, here are some pics from the shoot!
