Day 14: Immortal Island: Tampa, Fl
First off I’d like to say how weird it is that not even 24 hours before I was in Des Moines where it was snowing, and now I was in almost 90 degree weather playing on the beach! 😂
I was in a movie that was filmed in Tampa in 2009 called Immortal Island. The way I got the role was very interesting! I went to a Steve Miller Band concert with an agent of mine (shout out to Jason!) and afterwards I was sitting with the guys around these fire pits outside the hotel. I got to talking to these two named Rob Sterret and Adrian Brunori who happened to be a producer and director. While we were talking I casually mentioned that I do bellydance with snakes and I saw the light turn on! I was the perfect addition to the movie they were working on!
Obviously at this time I was living in Florida and did not have my snake with me,(big surprise they don’t allow snakes on a plane! 😂)so I had to improvise. I browsed through craigslist until I had come across an ad for a fairly young male Red Tailed Boa. On the ad it said he was tame and the only thing that was wrong with him was a scar on his back.
Enter my dear friend Rogue 🐍
The moment I saw him I knew he was perfect. Scar or no scar. We just connected.
I won’t give any spoilers, but you should TOTALLY watch the movie and tell your friends about it! It’s on YouTube, just search for “Immortal Island.” Rogue and I have plenty of presence in the movie, you can’t miss us!
Attached is the first photoshoot I had with him on the very first day I had him (the studio picture where my hair is pulled back and he’s on my head. Photo credit to @unity2012media ). The others are thanks to Kevin @denominatorx on set of the film and at the Gasparilla Film Festival. See what I mean?! He was a natural ❤️ RIP buddy.
