12-23-2014 BRUTAL Audition

Tuesday before Christmas I met with someone named Paola for an audition. She has been referred to me before as a fight choreographer, but I never met her until last week. She read for the parts of all the Assailants, and that was it. We were supposed to choreograph some short fight scenes, but she had just woken up about ten minutes before I got to her place. I could tell that asking her to try and kick my ass would be asking a bit much. She was also going to attend wing chun with me, but again that whole “just woke up” thing killed it.

The most interesting thing about this audition to me was how much we had in common. She is into martial arts, although she hasn’t been devoted to one in particular like I have. An even bigger discovery was that she is also into Dungeons and Dragons.

See, this is the cool thing about these auditions: not only am I finding actors, but I am also finding friends.


About Steve Grogan

I am 40 years old, divorced, and a father of four kids. I am a practitioner of a self-defense system called wing chun kung fu. My other hobbies include writing, playing guitar, reading, watching movies, and listening to music. Recently I have gotten back into fitness, and this time I am DETERMINED to get the washboard abs...whether my metabolism will cooperate with me or not! The purpose of this blog is to write not only about my hobbies, but also about whatever crosses my mind, whether it is something I don't understand or something that aggravates me. So join me as I indulge my tendency to think too much about topics that don't usually cross anyone else's mind!
