September 2020 Update

Hey everyone! Good news! It looks like things are starting to move — my agent told me to go ahead and get headshots turning, a friend booked a costar this month, and it sounds like we may actually see production returning. Now, if I’m honest with myself… even before the shut down, I wasn’t booking […]

August 2020 Update

This post is locked to Patrons only. If you’d like to join, please visit www.katehackett.com/patronage. Well, well… another month… I don’t know. Time passes. Word on the street is that things are casting and shows (well, CBS shows) are coming back slowly. Sloooowly is the key word here — my commercial agents asked me to […]

June 2020 Update

2020 can suck butts. The reality is that we are in no shape to reopen here — not filming, not lunching, not anythinging. I really don’t think we’re coming back before December this year. But I also really don’t want to just …sit here and do nothing creatively either.

May 2020 Update

Please accept my apologies: this is a trash fire of a year and I have so little to share! The industry is STILL shut down and given the current riots, we aren’t going to see a reopening this week. We keep hoping next week, the week after, the week after that… and so far… I […]

April 2020 Update

This post is locked to Patrons of any tier — if you’d like to join, please visit www.katehackett.com/patronage I wish I had *anything* to write here! Things are very, very slow. Something that casting decided to do is host these insanely huge “open calls” virtually — they give you sides, you upload a scene. They […]

March 2020 Update

Well this month was 800 fucking years long, wasn’t it. Basically… the industry shut down. It closed. There are NO auditions and NO productions working. Everyone is home, out of work, stressed, and fucking worried. Even my tutoring clients pulled back; my income dropped to 25% of its normal rate. This is really bad and […]

Today’s tape has two versions of the same scene. The first take is better lit but I felt like […]
