Here’s a quick breakdown of what the audition said:
“Charlie “The Hammer” Shaw is the hero of the film (and implicated tv series), a humble martial arts student who swore to never use his skills unless all else failed.He is a shamed man who seeks to restore his honor and the spirits of his people. He fears change and lacks the understanding of the desire for wealth and power.”
The director said that the short film,The Hammer, was influenced by Takashi Miike’s “Sukiyaki Western Django” and the Korean film “The Good, the Bad, the Weird.” Both are Asian-Western stylized films. Cool stuff. I was a fan of both films so I am very excited to be playing Charlie Shaw! So be on the lookout for the film and expect some kung fu western action!
I’ve been attending The Berg Studios for almost a year now to further my acting education. The classes are actually taught by Gregory Berger, himself along with Meg Brogan from time to time. He’s completely dedicated to teaching and pushing all of us to become better actors. It’s been quite an interesting journey. Come check out his school. It just moved to Atwater Village into a new space. Very nice.
This is my portfolio site showcasing my headshot photography and web designs. Yes they may seem like 2 different worlds and that’s true. But I happen to be good at both =P and enjoy doing both.
I am an artist constantly seeking different mediums to express myself or to create something that will engage the viewer. Whether it’s through my acting, my stunts and fighting choreography, or my photography and web design, I’m trying to learn something new about myself and the world. Did that sound corny? Well it’s pretty much true.
So please tell a friend or book an appointment with me and I’ll try my best to go above and beyond your expectations.
