My entry "Lights, Camera...Action" is your invitation to experience the world of an extra on movie sets in Michigan. Much time is spent waiting for the call to the movie set so I began to document my view of fellow extra actors. I choose three of the many film shoots I acted in to share with you. The top colored pencil sketch was created observing the extras of GENESIS CODE filmed in Grand Rapids. The middle sketch I observed actors playing sheriffs in the REAL STEEL movie filmed in Hartland, MI. The bottom sketch illustrates the street scene on the set of SCREAM 4 filmed in Northland, MI. Notice the director's signature, Wes Craven, Courtney Cox, Nev Campbell and David Arquette .I was honored to be selected by Drew Barrymore for her film WHIP IT and to be featured in two local films " LIVE from the NORTHSIDE" and a GVSU film "MRS ROBINSON". I believe artists have a unique way of looking at the world and documenting it.
