Hey everyone! My name is Chelsea Gray, and I am an artist/writer for 222 Footlight Productions! I’m so happy you found us. There is A LOT you can expect from us from following our web site. Comedy, drama, dramedy, and just plain stupid funny. Our goal is to bring you entertaining material.
We will be working on a number of short films and web series so stay tuned!
A little about me: I’m 19 years old, and Southern California based. I met Vanessa, Ashten, and Heather through our acting studio JDS Actors Studio, and Ainsley in middle school. We lost touch, and JDS brought us back together. I started acting seriously my sophomore year in high school, where I was an ensemble member in The Wiz. Since then, my love for acting grew. I always knew I had some interest in it, but after the show, I was addicted.
I had my first supporting role the following year where I played Serena in Legally Blonde: The Musical. My love was then solidified. I knew my life would never be normal. While the other kids in my drama class wanted to go to school for communications (what even is that major?), I wanted to get started on my acting career right away. I enrolled in a community college after high school, and am a part time student. I am also a part time burrito roller at Chipotle (fabulous life, I know). I had worked at Disneyland, but despite popular belief, was not the happiest place on earth for its employees. But thats another post for another day.
I am happy to say that as the years have gone by, my love for acting continues to grow. All of us at Footlight are just a group of friends, who were constantly talking about wanting to be involved in something that had to do with acting. So we thought, "HEY we are all talented and hilarious, lets do this ourselves!" And this website was born. We are not the kind to sit around and wait for miracles to happen. We make our own miracles happen, and in this day in age of youtube and social media, it is more possible than ever. There is now not an excuse to not create all the time. So get ready for some kick ass shorts and web series. We have some great ideas rolling in. Stay tuned, subscribe, check back regularly, share with everyone!
I leave you with a video featuring my fave girl right now, Mindy Kaling. This video is of her and her college roommate, Brenda, who decided to write roles for themselves to play. Those roles just so happened to be portraying Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. This short play was what put Mindy on the map. If she hadn’t taken matters into her own hands and made material herself, she would most definitely not have the career she had today. Check it out!
