As this issue goes to press, the Writers Guild of America (WGA) and SAG-AFTRA are striking for improved wages and work conditions. With no writers and no actors, audiences thirsting for new movies and new episodes of their favorite TV shows will have to wait. At Heart Of Hollywood Magazine, we hope there will be a swift resolution that is acceptable to all parties.
Our readers who are actors can get ready for when this happens. In this issue, we suggest different ways to prepare properly for auditions. To keep you excited about your career and inspire you to stay the course, we also offer images from the prestigious Cannes Film Festival, which Heart of Hollywood Magazine CEO Giovanna Salas attended along with part of our team.
If you are striking or impacted by the strike, it’s important to focus on your own well-being. A good way to boost your spirits is to take the necessary steps to get as physically fit as you possibly can. When you begin working again, you will have the necessary energy for long days on set. Perhaps you will also be able to audition for roles in action films or perform your own stunts if that’s something that excites you.
Do you need even more motivation to exercise? Consider reading my book, Choose to Prevail: Unexpected Insights to Help You Overcome Challenges, which won the Gold Medal in the Health and Wellness category of the International Latino Book Awards.
