Feelin’ Groovy And Yet Not So Groovy


I recently posted on my friend from high school who went to her first movie audition a few weeks ago.  Today, she came into the store looking rather depressed.  As I was waiting on her, I asked what was wrong.  Thier family dog had just passed away.  I  still remember being really upset for a long time after losing MY dog so I knew how she felt.

However, she did have some good news.  Monday was the day she was to get any callbacks for the movie.  She got a call from the director and SHE GOT THE PART!  She was absolutely floored.  The director said that her casting was totally unanimous.  Excellent for a first-time auditioner!  I have only been told that my casting in any role was unanimous one time and it was not the first time I ever auditioned.  I was not able to ask for details and Peg did not look like she was in the mood to discuss it.  But from what little I know, she is cast in the role of the mother in a horror film (ironic that she is the wife of a church pastor… wouldn’t you say?).  Apparently, the shoot starts in June in Coldwater.  Peg also told me that she has definitely decided to minor in film at UT after one of the faculty advised her to.  Doesn’t it just give you a great feeling to know that you helped someone achieve something special in some small way?  Congrats, Peg.

  1. Well, I don’t watch horror for the most part anymore, but I may have to make an exception. Please let us know more as you find out, J.

  2. Definitely, I sent her an invite to read the post. Maybe we have the makings for a new tangenteer? Too bad the contest was over a year or so ago.

  3. I got an email from Peg today with some of the main points about the film.

    WOW. I had no idea you blogged. That was really neat reading your entries. And it looks like you’ve been doing it for awhile too. That’s too cool.

    The movie is called 2012 – Devil’s Apocalypse. I’m a mother of two girls, one of whom gets attacked and transformed into a vampire. The mother’s name is Joanna and she fights to keep her family safe and together. Filming will begin in May or June in Hillsdale, MI. That’s all I know at this point. I’ll keep you updated.

    So, I was off on the shoot locale… oops.

  4. Sounds great – hope it’s for mainstream release – I like to watch horror movies! Keep us posted, and congrats to you and your friend!
