Graduation Ceremony – Performing Arts: Cinema and TV.

index4Hello again.

It is with great pleasure that I share this very special moment, from the City of Los Angeles, int the State of California, in the USA. I have finally finished my Bachelor of Fine Arts – Film and Television, which has been a  extremely in-depth course in the fields of Performing Arts, TV, Cinema and Communication.

To reach this level took may thousands of hours; of study; of work; of dedication, and of perseverance. Which included moments of joy, sadness, but also of great hope. Hope that I would reach this goal, which in itself is a foundation for the future.

I learned acting largely through private lessons and through my work on the 2 fictional TV series: Voo Directo and Windeck, where I also gained much practical experience.

index1Then I discovered that I could go still further and decided to invest in some top notch training, so as to raise my level of competence. I therefore enrolled in an University in the United States. I chose to study in the United States because it is the world leader and trend setter with regards to Cinema and Television. It was a great opportunity to work with the best.

With my preevious work, and with the succesfull conclusion of this phase, I hope to, ind some way, serve as an inspiration for all other youth who want to train and learn. For the youth that want to be the biggest and best in their respective fields. Knowledge is the best weapon and it takes us to places which we never imagined we could reach. It is not easy, but if it was, it would not be worth it, in the end. Nothing is impossible, you just need to believe. If you work towards your goal, giving your best, all you need is belief. God will show you the way, because nothing is impossible for Him

 

As we progress and gain true knowledge, we begin to feel the need to share, to be able to grow. We feel the need to discover new talents, and to help others who are beginning their professions, to go further. Every time I have an opportunity to act elsewhere in the world, I am bathed in the feeling that it is through the Arts, through Culture, and through Communication, that I can make the most difference. Wherever I go I always try to to leave something of the qualities that characterize all Angolans that strive to polish their talents.

William Shakespeare: O Bardo de Avon.

shakespeare

É considerado o maior escritor e poeta de língua inglesa. Shakespeare não apenas escrevia peças de teatro e poesia mas também era ator. William Shakespeare nasceu em Abril de 1564 em Stratford –upon – Avon. Apesar das suas obras terem sido escritas no seculo XVI, o trabalho de Shakespeare continua a ter impacto no público. Um exemplo disto é o grande numero de palavras que ele introduziu na Língua Inglesa. As suas peças foram representadas foram as que no teatro e adaptadas para o cinema inúmeras vezes.

Nos seus poemas e peças Shakespeare criou centenas de palavras.

Shakespeare escreveu mais de 30 peças. Normalmente são divididas em 4 categorias: História, Comédia, Romance e Tragédia. As primeiras peças que Shakespeare escreveu foram Comédias e peças históricas. Em 1596 escreveu a famosa Romeo e Julieta, a sua segunda Tragédia. Nos anos que se seguiram Shakespeare criou as suas obras mais conhecidas: Julius Caesar, Hamlet, Otelo, King Lear, Macbeth e Antonio e Cleópatra. “A Tempestade” foi a última peca que Shakespeare escreveu.

Varias são as pecas de Shakespeare que li. Cada uma delas teve um impacto diferente, mas a minha favorita até agora é Macbeth.

witchesMacbeth foi escrita por Shakespeare em 1606. Macbeth é uma acerca do assassinato do Rei Duncan, cometido por Macbeth. Macbeth regressa de uma vitória militar, quando se depara com três misteriosas bruxas que fazem uma previsão do seu futuro, dizendo que um dia será o Rei da Escócia.

Motivado pela ambição e pela insistência da sua mulher, Macbeth mata o Rei Duncan, e assume o trono. Torna se um líder tirano e comete assassinatos para se proteger, ficando com as mãos cheias de sangue, que o leva ao limite da loucura ate á morte.

Deixo um link de uma das minhas adaptações preferidas. Espero que gostem. Beijinhos.

Welcome to my blog!

Hi. I am Micaela Reis, welcome to my blog.

Here I will be giving you, the reader, occasional glimpses “behind the scenes” of my life as an Actress and Celebrity and bringing you up to date with what is happening in Angola.

As we all know life is not always glamour and glitz. Therefore I want to introduce you to the “real Micaela”. I will share with you my interests, my hopes and dreams and occasionally my fears. It is my hope that you will see that the person “behind the camera” has much in common with you. The internet is a means whereby people can come closer; I hope that as this blog develops we can become friends.

Topics I will be regularly posting about include Music, Theatre, Television, Health, Fitness, Sport, Fashion, Literature, Photography, Fine Art and, Travel. In each of these I will be sharing insights about Angola, but also about Portugal (where some of my family still lives), as well as the more exotic locations where my work takes me.

I have a particular interest in sharing Angola itself with you.  I am passionate about my country and hope to arouse this same passion in you. I will be providing the same “behind the scenes” look at Angola: it´s History, Culture and writing about its possible Future.

It has often been said that one way to create the future is to take particular care of our children. I believe in this view and I hope that my blog, as well as the daily efforts which it discusses, will help in the struggle we all share: preparing our children to be responsible, productive members of society.

I hope you enjoy your time on my blog.

Is there any aspect of my “behind the scenes life” which you are curious about? Feel free to let me know by dropping me an email.

I hope to hear from you soon.
