YouTubing

Starting to make YouTube content, I realise that it takes a certain amount of artistic vision, patients and a lot of time to edit footage make it look and sound the way you want. My content is basically skit videos for YouTube, learning how to edit in the process and learning how to film content…

Crazy Time

I’ve never felt time move as fast as it is moving now. I feel like I have no time to do anything, yet somehow I’m getting stuff done. Since I’ve been back from my holiday, one day has bled into the next. When I’m not working my ‘normal’ job I’m auditioning for new projects. Times are…

Actor On Holiday

I had a crazy few weeks exploring the world with my cousin, seeing new things, learning about what’s out there and figuring out who I am along the way. Going for multiple auditions and only booking a few roles can really get you down so it’s great to see the world , I felt like it…

Networking Game

The last couple weeks I have been focusing on my networking game, as it’s probably the poorest aspect in my toolbox. You see, I never thought about making connections that way. I had no idea I would need to go to events first. I thought I would do the auditions, now that I’ve been to…

Spontaneous Pneumothorax, My Story. Part 2.

We left off with the first time I had spontaneous pneumothorax(collapsed lung), yes I said first time. I got out of hospital in Jan 09, the second collapsed lung happened on the 10th of March the same year, only months after the first. The doctors told me it was a possibility it would happen again,…

Spontaneous Pneumothorax, My Story. Part 1.

This blog will differ from my usual blogs about acting. This is something that’s very near and dear to my heart. In fact it’s my lungs! I had something called spontaneous pneumothorax (a collapsed lung). This is my story. I didn’t know what I wanted to do in life but I knew that if there was an…

I’m not Arnold, I’m Adnan.

For a long time, I had this idea of what I wanted to look and be like. It was all about the type of actor I wanted to be, just like the men I looked up to. Only to realise I was growing up not meeting any of those expectations I set for myself.   I thought I was going…

Headshots

I absolutely love getting new headshots. I only do it once a year but its one of my favourite parts of being in this business. Especially this time, I had a great photographer taking my shots. I love how they came out. I love photos in general, I really can’t get enough of black and…

Tool, The Driving Force.

Before I started acting, I was a diesel mechanic. I remember first starting out in drama school and just saying my lines thinking that’s what acting was. I soon learned that just like a mechanic, tools are the driving force to getting the job done.  The tools to an actor are their skills, honed in to be able to build…

Brush off the Acting Dust

When you leave something sitting for a few weeks it starts to build up dust. The same can be said for you tools as an actor, well it is for me anyway.   I try and keep my tools working, so I don’t forget how to use them but lately I get so caught up with life. A…
