The past week I have been more inspired than ever to conquer Los Angeles. I was really doubtful the past few months, going to countless auditions, not getting callbacks, getting not so big gigs. I was so down that I even cancelled on a gig I had booked with Ray Ban because I just wasn’t inspired and feeling like myself. That has all changed. This week has been so huge and exciting. It started with getting a few auditions last week, and my first speaking line audition. It was pretty nerve-wracking, but exciting. I never got the part, but the fact that I was able to go in front of casting people and cameras and do my thing …. I was like who is this girl?
Anyways, the day after my debut as a speaking actor I was cast in one of Chris Browns new music videos. I was like ‘Yes Yes Yasssssss‘. I mean Chris Brown is HUGE. I was able to get my roommate cast as well, so the day comes and we get to set. I don’t want to give too much away about this video, but all I have to say about my experience that day working with Chris Brown was amazing. He was so into the creative process, joking with everyone, and was acting like a boss. It was so hot. I now have a urging crush on that man. And his dancing, *HEART EYES*.
After the first Chris Brown video I was on a role. The next week I had so many gigs I had to triple book some days. I loved it, being busy, heading to multiple sets a day. I was like “I’m the real deal here”

I had filmed two other music videos, and a commercial within two days when I got an email if I am available Saturday (in two days) for another Chris Brown video featuring French Montana. This would be a small set, only 10 other actors. I was freaking out. My roommate again was booked as well. The call time was for 6:30AM. (Ouch) We get to set, sit around for a while, and a while more. Finally time to start, and without giving out any information about this video – Actually I’m just not going to say anything. Y’all just need to wait to see it, but it was crazy. I get to do some huge expressions, and scream.

It is now Sunday (off day), and as I write this laying in bed with my coffee listening to the soundtrack of Beauty and the Beast, I am so inspired and excited about life. I have one more music video tomorrow that I am featured in before I leave for Minnesota for a week. I haven’t been home for Thanksgiving in a few years, so I can’t wait to be with all my family and friends this week, and eat so much!
I have been wanting to start a new blog/vlog for so long, and this morning I was like this is the last straw. I even signed up for a gym membership today. Like who am I? Ha, well I plan to post tons of stories & photos from shoots, filming on set, traveling this beautiful world, and just life in general living in Los Angeles. I am continuing to work with many brands, and will feature their work on this blog. I have filmed music videos with artists including 5 Seconds of Summer, Justin Bieber, Third Eye Blind, and Steel Panther. I also have been featured in a few of your favorite television shows such as 2 Broke Girls and The Mindy Project. I just got back from visiting Morocco, and already planning another trip immediately. And if I must say, one year ago Amanda Bynes was living with me briefly. Anyways, I’ll keep this first post short and sweet, but if you aren’t already make sure to follow my instagram (@jenniferbroders) – ta ta xoxoxoxo jennifer
