We've all heard that cheesy simile of how being a working artist is like being the CEO of your own business, right? In that spirit, I'd like to report that my "company" had a productive fourth quarter! What a hectic and exciting fall we had here at Gilli Messer Actress/Writer, Inc...
YouTube Red released Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes On Television. I guest starred in episode 5 alongside Ryan Hansen and Samira Wiley!
Found out I was a finalist for Film Independent's Project Involve.
In November, I updated my reel. But really, November was the month of MEME QUEENS, the web series I co-wrote and acted in with my comedy sister Jessica Caesar! We released a full season of the show on Elizabeth Banks' female-driven comedy platform, WhoHaha, on YouTube, got tons of great press on the show, and even did a live interview about it. If you haven't watched MEME QUEENS yet, what are you waiting for?!
I shot a fun supporting role in a new indie film that I'll tell you more about later when I'm allowed to! In the meantime, here's a BTS photo of me on set!
Found out I was a finalist for the Fox 21 Writers Lab.
Would it even be a month if we didn't have another screening of The Drunk Lonely Wives Book Club? In December, the show was an official selection for the Hollyshorts Film Festival's Monthly Screening Series. This time, we screened at the TCL Chinese Theatre!
AND YES, I REALIZE A QUARTER HAS THREE MONTHS, NOT FOUR, BUT I HADN'T UPDATED MY BLOG SINCE AUGUST, OKAY???
Throughout the entire fall, I was writing for the CBS Sketch Comedy Diversity Showcase, which goes up next week at the El Portal Theatre in North Hollywood!! If you're in LA, reserve your tickets HERE now!
Hope to see you there!!
