You may remember Prisma from an earlier post about meeting her for a sunrise session. Between then and now, both Prisma and I have stayed busy. It was good to have a chance to catch up with her. This time, we were working together on my latest project (more on that in a future post) and it was a great opportunity to sneak in an interview.
Prisma seems to have been busy since we last met. Like all of us, life sometimes throws some obstacles in our path, but she seems to be dealing with it as well as one might expect. Her networking efforts are paying off as she works with other creatives on a variety of film-related projects.
Prisma Plays Interviewee
Did you catch the part about finding more confidence and self-respect? Acting and modeling can be a lot of work, especially for someone who is not so outgoing. You are really putting yourself out there. More than likely, you’ll have people judging you for a variety of reasons. There is definitely a certain amount of dedication that you need to have in order to be successful in either field.
After the interview, we had a brief conversation about how we have both found ourselves adapting over time to social situations. I was reminded of a presenter and author I discovered via Creative Live. I began reading her book, Captivate: The Science of Succeeding with People, a few months back. I was enjoying it right up to the point I was sidetracked. I have a long books I need to read and this one is on my short list to return to and finish up. If you find yourself a bit awkward in social interactions, I think you might enjoy this read as well.
Are you shy or a bit introverted, too? How do you deal with the stress of social interactions?
