That's right! No more Non-Union work for actress ADRA JANEAN!
Sometimes it just takes a leap of faith to keep your goals on track. When YOU are the only one holding YOU back, it is time to step out of your comfort zone and head into the unknown. Making the switch from Non-Union to Union Actor was kind of scary for me, honestly. I had to give up three projects that are not SAG / AFTRA, and throw my hat into a ring that is full of talented, experienced, beautiful, hard working women, all equally deserving of the roles that are offered. With the goals I set for my career for 2014-2015 though, the Universe made me realize, that without "ripping off the band aid" as some may say, I would not be on track to fulfill my goals going into 2016. With that being said, there are many things I would like to achieve in my acting (and producing) career over my lifetime (yes, I said lifetime, this is not a fly by night hobby for me) and going SAG / AFTRA is the only way I can continue on my path. Yes, I am currently without an Agent or Manager, but that is okay by me (for now) because I am looking to surround myself with great people, a "team" that works well together like a well oiled machine. I look forward to the future, leaving behind a great body of work that evolves, changes and grows, that leaves people wanting to see more. I want to tell stories, and make magic on screen. I will be producing my own shorts over the course of the next few years, and moving into feature length films within the next five. As I build my team of creatives, filmmakers, MUA's, set designers, producers, directors, actors, distributors, public relations, location scouts, editors, costume designers...I know that making my projects SAG / AFTRA will benefit everyone working with me. As my studio head at my acting school (where I am the booking officer) said to me the other day; "You want benefits and good working conditions, right? You want to be paid fairly for your talent, right? Well, then join the F'ING UNION!!". So I did.
"Hi, I'm Adra Janean.
Thanks for stopping by!"
