Here's a link to me in my first paid acting job! Only a mere 16 years after getting my degree in Undergraduate Drama and Acting from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, I got my first film job! Well, like they say, "it's never too late!" And the pay rate helped chip away at that $40,000+ - tuition, one $50 job at a time!
It was a great experience getting to work with award-winning director Randall Dottin (http://www.columbia.edu/cu/news/04/06/student_academy_awards.html) and an amazingly talented crew and other actors. I'll let you know when it's on the festival circuit and movie houses!
