Q&A With Bobbi-Lea
Q: Tell us about you
A: I’m a bit of an eclectic, creative soul with a passion for the performing arts, media and entertainment industries. I have what some people call a portfolio career, or a ‘slash’ career. I am an actor / producer / arts writer / web designer / and master’s student.
Q: What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
A: The massive “to do” list that just stresses me out if I stay in bed thinking about it for too long! Moving that one step closer to my goals puts a skip in my stride.
Q: What’s the story behind your work with ASJ?
A: I work with ASJ in a few capacities: as an audio voice over artist, an actor, and web design consultant. (I have another life as a web designer during ‘working’ hours, which is usually night-time when I’m not busy being an actor or producer).
Q: What are you working on next?
A: I have a number of projects on the go • Doing voice-overs for ASJ audio books. • Acting in a short film “Kidnapped” as a police officer. • Acting in a web series “Dear Internet” as a hippy. • Acting in a horror feature film “Rise of the Darkness”. • Producing a splatter punk feature film “Mutant Strippers”. • Marketing a short film “Impact” which I co-produced and acted in (again as a cop). • Completing my Masters in Screen Production part-time.
Q: Do you have any special/extraordinary talents?
A: Juggling the balls of life!
Q: Who are your favorite authors?
A: George R. R. Martin – who couldn’t love the Game of Thrones series?! Lucy Maud Montgomery – One of my favourite stories is Anne of Green Gables.V. C. Andrews – Another favourite story imprinted on my brain is Flowers in the Attic.Orson Scott Card – His sci-fi book of short stories kept me company on many long train trips into work when I lived in Sydney.
Q: What do you like to do with your free time?
A: Free time? What is free time? Time is never free! Acting is both a hobby and a career so that is mainly what I do for fun. I also review theatre so I see A LOT of shows. This is a little cocktail of pleasure and work. Socialising, networking, and seeing a free show with great seats and great company is a treasure trove of productivity for this life juggler!
