    The Professional Blur Podcast Episode 26 – Kristina Rueckert

    My very good friend Kristina Rueckert was a child actor and model with parents who cared, so we couldn’t talk about her childhood career without also talking to her parents, Bev and Gregg Van Citters.  They join me to talk about Kristina’s appearance in the Bumble Ball commercial, acting school and everything else she touched […]

Learn the truth about Background Work with The Blur!

Jason Klamm is one of the most prolific and BEST podcast hosts in the country and on this new podcast, he interviews talented performers about their work as extras/background artists in movies & TV shows and uses his own many experiences doing it as well to compare & contrast & tell stories of his own. It’s a look at what most people go through in L.A. when they’re starting out trying to break in to acting and there are thousands of folks who make a living doing this. So many people don’t know the ins and outs of this kind of work, which can be a grind on the body, mind, ego, & soul. This terrific podcast gives you that in all the funny, sometimes inspiring/sometimes a bit humiliating detail. Learn about how the business really works on set by listening to Jason and his guests. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ all the way for The Professional Blur!
