Dear Friends and my extended community,
As some of you may know, I am a South African Actress who has been acting since 2010. I graduated in 2012 after a 2 year Film acting course at ACT Cape Town. During my Studies I worked as a film extra in an international UK TV series called "Women In Love" and a National Production of "Black butterfly." I moved to Johannesburg in 2013 for better opportunities and to sign up with an Agent and work full time as an actress.
My Portfolio of work includes; working as a stunt double on an International Film called "Min Soster born i Afrika" for which I was credited on IMDB http://www.imdb.com/name/nm6474825/?ref_=ttfc_fc_c...; I have performed on stage and toured for 2 weeks in a 3 man play, that sold out at the Grahamstown National Arts Festival and at the Johannesburg Pop Art theater; I have also worked as a voiceover artist for radio adverts; I did a cameo role on an International UK TV Series called "Outcasts" and a National TV Series called "Binneland".
In the interim I work as a part time Au Pair so that I can earn an income but also be free to go to castings as I am extremely passionate about fulfilling my dream of becoming the first Internationally Acclaimed South African actress to win an Academy Award.
A month Ago I was walking in the mall in downtown Johannesburg and came across IMTA (International Model and Talent Agency) who have been holding auditions in and around South Africa. I thought this would be an amazing opportunity for me, to be seen by 150 of Americas Best Agents, Managers and Castings Directors.
I applied and went for the Audition 2 weeks ago and got through to the next round of Auditions which will be held in Johannesburg in March 2017. As part of this next round of Auditions I will need to pay $2000 towards the cost of the 4 day convention which includes Workshops held by America's top agents, which will then be judged on 3 different acts for one actor to go through, to an all expenses paid, final round in New York City.
I would dearly love to attend the convention and workshops so that I can be seen by USA Agents.
Please do contribute generously to my cause for funding my $2000 campaign.
Thank you so much for your generosity.
