Living and working in NYC requires a lot of proactivity especially when one is trying to make a profession out of acting.
I realized early on that I preferred the behind the scenes grind to auditioning but I tremendously enjoy living vicariously through friends and acquaintances who are making a successful go of an onstage and/or on camera career.
One of the most recent people I have met who allows me this pleasure is the wonderful Lindsay-Elizabeth Hand.
From TV appearances to commercials, College Humor web videos, indie films, voice overs and plays, which is where I originally saw her perform, Lindsay-Elizabeth has truly made the most of the time she has spent in New York (4 years this spring).
A part of Linsday-Elizabeth’s success, aside from being a very talented actress, has been the understanding of how important it is to create content and roles for herself; establishing her own production company along with partner and husband Jean-Louis Fragnay in 2011 as an outlet for developing theatrical and film projects.
To date, Edge In Motion has produced multiple plays, has a webseries in development, and is about to launch a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for their upcoming film venture “RESCUE”. “RESCUE,” written and to be directed by Daniil Deych, tells the story of childhood friends reuniting as adults amidst a dystopian society.
In addition to Edge In Motion’s exciting projects, Lindsay-Elizabeth can also be spotted on the web in a new series called “The Eye of Horus” from ASyouare Films and in the upcoming theatrical production “Why Won’t You Pick Up Our Garbage?” from playwright Jason Schuler and The Operating Theater Company. Highlights of the show will be performed as part of P.S. 122’s Avant-Garde-Arama series this coming weekend before returning to the Cherry Lane Theatre for a repeat run in May. You can check out The Operating Theater Company’s website for more info about when and where you can see “Why Won’t You Pick Up Our Garbage?”
For other opportunities to see Lindsay-Elizabeth Hand in action, visit her website or subscribe to her YouTube channel and stay tuned for a link to the Kickstarter campaign for “RESCUE” which will be launching this Monday, April 15.
