Gypsy reference notwithstanding, Curtain Up on my first blog.
The name: L. Brandon Gloster. The game… Um, a lot. I have a wide variety of interests and I like teaching myself how to do new things all the time. Brevity is not my strongest suit so I will try to make this as short as possible.
First and foremost, I am a performer; actor, singer, dancer. Stage and film is my life and is what I will be doing with my life, no questions asked. I love the feeling of being on a stage and doing something that makes someone else smile. Film, wise, I just love acting. I only buy 2-disc editions of DVDs because I love watching the pre and post-production processes of putting together a film, especially the editing and scoring processes.
Education wise, however, I am studying marketing and advertising because I enjoy knowing what goes into marketing anything; a new musical, a tv show, or even a person. I also like graphic design and writing screenplays and musicals. These are a few of my favorite things…
My main focus right now, regarding my career, is getting out of my own way. I have a headshot and a résumé but my nerves sometimes tend to get the better of me. It’s just a matter of time before I can confidently kick down that door called “me.”
I suppose I have a lot of opinions, some of which I enjoy sharing openly. That, coupled with my growing desire to get myself out there on the web, is what birthed this blog. Oh, I should mention, Brandon is my name but many do call me Brando…
So, curtain up on the world of Broadway and Hollywood through the experience, research and ultimately the eyes of me.
Consider this my overture. Welcome to Act I.
