Ravenclaw I'm a nerdy student.
It was a close one though, it did suggest I should change Slitherin from the inside out.

I'm still at uni getting a degree in my minor
Television Production

So that's probably where I'll try to find a job first. And I'll have to see what Australian immigration wants me to do so I can stay in the country, for all I know I 'll have to spend another two years on a vocational training... there's some serious research ahead for me.

Congratulations! Well done!

Do you have a work visa?

Maybe the immigration department will give you one. Surely!

i will have to do some research to see what options are the best for me,
but from what i can tell there are several choices, which is good.
i spent the last few months believing I had to leave.
i was soooooooooooooo depressed. (I started crying during the Australian Anthem)

Surely you must be able to get a work visa!

Chase up the australian embassy or immigration.

my internet went nuts on me hence the late reply.
Thanks Ang I'll certainly look into those.
I'll also make an appointment with the immigration office. The way i understand it it can be done I just have to find the best option for me.

Thanks Ziggy & Chicken boo

I was surprised about the hat too, we all just rented our gear and to our big surprise we got to keep em

this is me shaking the chancellor's hand (for as long as they're keeping the pic up)

http://www.gfp.com.au/store/grads/Or...mageID=1912510

I look like I'm about to fall over

Nor does the link allow me to see the picture. I think I have to have a log in account, or something to that degree.

Glad you're internet is back up, and I'm also glad that you indeed did NOT fall while you shook hands with the chancellor.

I'm just not used to high heels, so I'm kind of standing at an angle



this one's taken by gfpgraguations, it's a picture of me so I should be allowed to post it...although techically I'd probably have to ask everyone else for permission... and it'm sorta advertizing for gfp. it looks like a copyright grey zone. if somebody knows otherwise please inform me and I'll take it off.

Aw, shucks! I'm kinda late, but I wish you the best in your future life. I bet you've worked really hard to get to this point... now keep doing it and you'll get to reach your dream someday soon. And when you do so, all you have to do is keep working as hard as ever, persevere no matter what happens, and a lot of doors will be opening for you, that's for sure (hell, I don't need to tell you this, I bet you already know it).

One thing I've noticed from you is that you really love the acting, so it may not seem like "work" for you anymore, but like real fun, which is a great thing, since that helps you a lot with your state of mind, your enthusiasm, your way of developing your skills, your performance, etc. Soon you'll be amazing your own self with something new (IF you haven't already; I bet you have!). An improvement in your acting style, a new way around certain (complex) character... I don't know. The point is that it's become something you don't 'have to' do, but something you really WANT TO do, something you love doing because it's your whole life, your contribution to the world, what you were born to do, your special talent. At least that's what I can see from you, and I have to tell you that it's not something you can see everyday. There are less and less people like you out there in the world, so keep going, girl! There are no limits, only if you want to.

One point here I would like to make here if I may

Once again jassian, well done on your achievements here

I truely do wish you all the best in finding acting work and hope you get alot of work to

Now - this is what I think of getting acting work:

You need 4 things:

- To be in the right place at the right time
- To have the right people see you at the right time
- To be doing the right things at the right time
- The right people needing someone like you at the right time

I think thats the way to get noticedif you are looking for a break in acting.

What does everyone think?

Do my words sound crazy here?

Thanks so much for your encouragement! I don't know if you guys realize, well you probably do, but it does means a lot to me

One of the more difficult choices on the near future is what to focus on more, acting or production. I will probably have to get a job as a camera op or editor. Or probably something even simpler first, and do acting on the side for a while.

I think your list is quite right, Ang. Of course assuming you have skill and heart

Regrettably a lot of it is dependent on luck and it is quite costly to travel and see casting directors and do workshops. but it can be done. I'm also hoping to set up a small company and do short films, this way I create work for myself and others
