My name is Jamie Block and I am 25 years old; just moved up to Manhattan last October from Austin, TX last which, in case you haven't had the good fortune of ever going to, is totally amazing (think Williamsburg); and got my B.S. in Radio-Television-Film from the University of Texas at Austin in May of 2009.
I have done a lot of brand ambassador/promotional work, modeling gigs here and there; extras work more times that I can count, and most recently did a photo shoot for Fine Threads and appeared in a music video that will be airing on MTV later this month. But what I lack in terms of credits to my name I feel like I make up for in familiarity with the process and how everything works because its what I do for a living...I'm just usually on the other side of the camera.
I currently do free-lance Film and Television Production and typically have a service industry job going on on the side to supplement my income and keep myself busy; but I am really looking to expand my repertoire and get more in to the talent aspect of the industry so that I update my portfolio and really make the most of my time up here in Manhattan because I feel like I have been tip toeing around the edge of the talent pool (pun intended) and really want to get my feet wet to see if this is something that I can do full time before my window of opportunity closes.
So please feel free to call me if you have any comments, questions, or concerns; but if not then thank you so much for taking the time to look at my submission and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
