Ben Hauck’s SlateShot Makes the ActorIntro SlateShot Hall of Fame

This morning I found out that one of my SlateShots — a very short introductory clip tailored to masthead an Actors Access profile — was chosen for the first ever ActorIntro SlateShot Hall of Fame.

My SlateShot — which mentions my being like the male version of Flo from Progressive — appears around 2:50 in the video.

Improvised Music Recording // With Angie Atkinson

Yesterday into early this morning I prompted singer/songwriter Angie Atkinson with suggestions for songs as she improvised vocally and with ukelele.  I also filmed the entire 40-minute engagement.

Not sure if someday the film will make it online fully or in pieces, but Angie created some pretty moving songs on the fly.
