Reviews from 'The Cat Lady' and 'Hopes Identity'!!

I'm going to upload these reviews to a more permanent part of my blog, buy for now, here are some rad reviews of some of my work from various people!!! :-D

'Brittany Williams also gives a highly memorable performance as Mitzi, Susan’s terminally ill friend and lodger. Their relationship is the driving force of the entire game – it will make you laugh, it could make you cry, and it will almost certainly deliver a healthy dose of heartache.'
                         -Marty Mulrooney for alternativemagazineonline.co.uk

'The voice acting is tremendous, which is crucial because there is so much of it during the game’s nearly nine-hour playing time.....The gravelly-voiced Mitzi presents a combination of world weariness and energy in the face of tragedy at the same time.'
                       -Merlina McGovern from adventuregamers.com.

'TCL's voice acting is first-rate. Particularly outstanding are Lynsey Frost as Susan, and Brittany Williams as Mitzi Hunt, a young woman who plays an important part in Susan's strange journey.'
                        -Karla Munger with Justadventure.com


"A MUST SEE FILM by Director Christopher L. Ellis!  Brittany Williams pulled off the dramatic ending to compliment the satirical humor of the film. The Reggie Bush's of the world may think twice before playing "a white girl"...Bitter Black Women will get a mirror held up & uncomfortably close...being racist against inter-racial couples out of Baby Mama drama or jealousy- ain't a good look soul sista!   Williams light up the screen with her ingenue. Not only does this starlet have great comedic timing, but Williams is humble and a force to watch out for. Her debut performance was light-hearted yet powerful in it's honesty.

Her best moment was a botched blind date after a crushing break-up... proving she can not only make us smile but make us feel every emotion with her. In her most dramatic moments we cringe, comparing our own miss-education against her characters tough life choices. You will surely identify your own hope from this pointed new date movie...share with your parents, teens, girl and/or guy friends. A treat for all races, religions and ages. This one will have you and your boo pillow talking long after you've left the theater...  Lastly Hope's Identity has more than a few catchy original music scores! Marcus may have left his ex for a white girl, but heroine Cynthia certainly ain't no gold digger...standing by her man in a portrayal, of the every woman, that would surely make Ms Lorretta Lynn tip her hat!  MOVE OVER Drew Barrymore, America is bound for a new sweetheart! Bravo Miss Brittany!"
-Alicia Hope Alexander with Rip Raw Entertainment


'A story heavy game like this can stand or fall on the quality of the voice acting, I will say the quality is good overall, failing briefly with one character and holding a high standard with both female leads. Talking of the leads I do have a bias, I'm totally in love with the voice of Brittany Williams.'
-ECat


Thanks everyone!! ;-)

Half Birthday Changes

I am coming to you in a new blog entry on my half birthday! I have a lot of updated works, I just don't have a working computer (Santa?) so it's been harder to post a long blog. My fingers get tired.

Bad news first. My fiancee Mike and I ended our relationship amicably. And, gosh it's been hard. Going from living with and seeing him everyday, looking forward to his kisses at the end of the day to being alone three quarters of the time, being accused and guilted by people because 'I didn't tell them about my engagement ending soon enough.' Well here it is! We broke up. I took it a million times harder than him apparently, because apparently he'd fallen out of love with me months before. Plus he started dating and moved in with a girl less than a month after we broke up. *deep breath* Dramatic story over.
Thankfully I have very supportive and fantastic friends! My two besties from kindergarten and 1st grade, Kassy and Ashley, respectively, came to visit me when I was living in Richmond! A fun and bonding girls weekend was had by us three in SF :) Thank you all for being there for me :)

Good news now!!!!! I SIGNED WITH NORTH CROWN TALENT MANAGEMENT!!!!! I haven't booked any gigs with them yet, but I've been chatting with them a lot, and I do need some amazing new headshots, but I'm very excited about the future we have together! YAY!!

I've also made some really good friends and connections in the acting world :) I was asked by the amazing Swayde Wilson to be in View Line Entertainment LLC's horror film, 'Dead Man's Chair!' It will be filming in Arizona the last weekend of January 2014!

I was also asked to be in the exciting horror film, 'Valentine's Day Massacre' this upcoming December/January. :)
I will be filming an awesome mockumentary, 'Hallucinations of Fear,' playing the role of an adult film star in my first 'real' film supporting extraterrestrials.

The video game in which I voiced Mitzi Hunt, The Cat Lady, is being released onto Steam within the next week! This is a fantastic step for both this game and its creators, Harvester Games!
Check it: http://www.screen7.co.uk/#!/page_PremierGames
Speaking of voice overs, I'll be working with Eye Wadjet Games on 'Kathy Rain' as Kathy Rain in January! I'll be heading over to New York to record for a few days! Yaaay!! :-D

Just yesterday I booked a really cool modeling gig as well! I'm working directly with the artist along with three other models. There's one shoot a month for the next three months, one in SF, the next in Portland and the following will be in Seattle! I'll definitely be traveling a lot in 2014! :-D

Unfortunately right now is the slow season for me so I'm mostly chilling at home. I made my first set of mittens with a matching hat!! Lol, not incredibly exciting. I want to be working SO much more. Hence me considering moving to LA....

Updates on life-Apprehension

There have been some very positive steps forward in our lives lately! I was asked to be a small role in Jordan Ghanma's upcoming film, "Valentine's Day Massacre' filming in November/December. I love my schedule filling up but I would love to be working all the time. Someday very soon it will happen :-D

I'm also still filming 'The Dirty.' It's been a strenuous but rewarding experience-from the level of commitment and talent of the cast and crew, I have a feeling that this tv series will go far (plus the hair and wardrobe people are amazing so everyone looks gorgeous!!) :D I also did my first two shows for 'The Dinner Detective!' The first one was super fun, everyone was super nice and really into the show. The second show was for Google, but just didn’t have the same fun, intriguing feel of the previous show. I'll be co-hosting in late October, but will be busy with other gigs until then! :)

Mike has great news too! He was promoted to full time at his job! So he's working 6 days a week now! It kinda sucks because one of the few days I'm filming this week is Sunday, his day off! lol. The life of an actress... :-D

I now have a almost fully updated IMDb! Please check it out and give it a like? :) It can be seen here: http://www.imdb.me/brittanymorganwilliams

Now to get to more important things. I've been watching a lot of Doctor Who lately. And I must say, I look very British. Like, same eyeballs, facial structure, cheeks as half the actors! I'm crazy British.

It's rough trying to become an actress. I love it, don’t get me wrong, especially because I hate being bored. But 3/4 of my days are spent finding gigs, updating my info, websites, applying to gigs and forever working on my demos. Carving out a few hours to do a part-time job is hard and makes me feel down. I guess that's just part of being an adult, lol

LOVES!!!!

Career and Life Updates! More movies!! :-D

I left my last post in a bit of a cliffhanger! So here's a little update! Mike and I moved down to my aunt and uncle's house in Richmond, CA about a month ago. On Mike's second interview, he landed a great job that will hopefully be going full-time shortly! I'm working part-time in The Dinner Detective-a murder mystery dinner that is largely improv :) I'm going to start another part-time job within the next week as well :)

In movie news, Hopes Identity had its first premiere at the Grand Lake Theater in Oakland to a full audience! :) Everyone who stayed for the Q&A was so supportive and very positive-I had such a blast!!
Our second premiere at the California Theater went well too! It was a midnight premiere so it was only about half-full, but it was still super fun!

Next up in premieres we will be in Monterey or Sacramento, The Carmel Art and Film Festival, The Blue Mountain Film Festival in Australia and more!! :-D Please keep up to date with us at the Facebook page or website: http://hopesidentity.wix.com/hopesidentity

I am also working on a webseries, 'The Dirty.' It's about 5 crews around the Bay Area competing for control. This production already has a lot of interest-we're at more than 6,000 Facebook likes! I play a Russian with a mysterious past (to others, I already know her entire life lol), Valraye, on the City Money crew! The website can be seen here: http://www.thedirtywebseries.com/

 Pictured: Rashad Itson, Jonez Cain, Mike Grayson, Dominique Ramon Smith

I was just cast in my 2nd feature film as well, the comedy, 'Telemarketing for Dummies.' I'll be playing the quirky Jessica, a girl in her young 20s who's the romantic interest of the lead. Their facebook page with all the info can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/telemarketingfordummies

Aaaand I will be appearing in the webseries 'T'chiba' as the news reporter, Wilma. This is a dark comedy with some supernatural elements :)

I'm excited to get started on all of these projects and hopefully add in a few more. All these opportunities are making my dream come true! Thank you again to all those who support, love, and work positively with me! :-D

AAAAAACK!! NEW NEWS!!! (Redundant much?)

OMG YAY!!!! The main thing holding me and Mike back from moving anywhere was not having a car that we could drive to work and such. My aunt and uncle just called me and their friend has offered up their car to us!! So, all plans out the window! Back to the writing board!

What I would love to happen is we head down to the Bay Area, meet the lovely lady who is letting us borrow her car and then traverse down to LA. Be in a tv show and hopefully be able to work Comic-Con. The next few hours will be very deciding!!!
It seems that while I'm stuck here in Redding, I don't get a single break or I'm stuck doing something that I have to simply make money. But I had completely forgotten about my LA agency! They had just accepted me on right when I had to move back to Redding so I let them know I would be moving back to LA in August. And she's on the ball!! She remembered about me heading back to LA and has submitted me to a couple of things already! Plus I'm getting all intense-y on finding gigs! I'm a member of Casting Frontier, Actor's Access as well as LACasting of course!
Ah, to land a full length feature film.... :-D :-D

My most recent role was as Cynthia Evans in the full length film 'Hopes Identity.' It will be premiering at the Lake Theater in Oakland, CA on August 14th! We will also have showings in Berkeley, in the Carmel Film Festival, the Blue Mountain Film Festival in Australia, and even up by my hometown in Red Bluff, CA at the State Theater on October 5th! This was such an amazing filming process and I truly enjoyed this cast and crew! The amount of hijinks, ridiculous blaahh moments with my fake sissy Alexandra Heard, and, of course, lovely bonding moments with Mike Grayson! I can't wait to work with this group again!! :-D
(Shot by Cheryl Bowers. Talent: Mike Grayson, Brittany Morgan Williams)

But now I get down to the main issue I've been dealing with. I need to move.
No no, please read that last sentence again. I NEED to move!!!! I am stuck in a room (that used to be part of the garage!!) half the size of my old college dorm with my fiancee and the entirety of our stuff. And there are a lot of people living in this 4 bedroom house! My mom and dad, me and Mike, Gideon, Griffin, and my nephews Blake and Rhett. Not to mention our dogs Beowulf, Wonka and Duke. Duke and Beowulf are both males (Beowulf is fixed, Duke isn't) and therefore they get in huge snarling fights if a toe or piece of kibble is out of line.

Interval.....

There has been some good an bad news recently. We shall start with the good :) The first film I ever starred in, 'The Final Shutter,' will be showing at the Cannes Film Festival in France May 15th-26th (right during my sister's wedding!!)!!!!!!!!!!! I am so excited for this opportunity!!!! :-D :-D :-D
Now onto more everyday conundrums: I am currently working 3 part-time jobs, very part time at the movie theater, as an assistant for a Mary Kay director, as well as a Mary Kay consultant. It's incredibly crazy and I have had close to no time to do my voice-overs or work out.
16-18 hour days 4/5 days a week=exhausted Brittany/ 
It's very frustrating as well because although I'm working a lot, I am getting close to no money since I'm working off Mary Kay products. If anyone needs any Mary Kay products or a free facial, PLEASE let me know!! I want to get back down to LA as soon as possible and this is the only way I'm seeing that happen now. I would love to quit the movies so I can focus on my film and Mary Kay but that's the only income Mike and I have right now.
Also, for the next few months I will sporadically be down in the Bay Area for filming of  'Hope's Identity!' It's so exciting that even when I'm not trying to find gigs, they fall into my lap. It makes me feel very blessed and excited for my career as well as my cast's future!
I'm also working on a few different voice over projects right now, one of which I was just cast in-Kathy Rain in the video game 'Kathy Rain!: I have several more auditions that I'm waiting on and I'm currently editing together my demo scripts. Hopefully I'll actually have some time to update that soon with my pro mic! :)
Oh, did I say the bad news? Yeah, Mike's job was temporary so his paycheck is no longer coming in. And now we have a gas guzzling truck. We don't have the gas money to even get to my jobs and class anymore with this Beast. But we are hoping to trade it as soon as possible because although it's in great shape (especially for being a 1980 Ford truck), the gas eating is almost worse than having no vehicle :( I hope everyone's day/week/month are prosperous and filled with joy!! :-D
