About Me

Pasadena, CA
United States
Member Since: January 17, 2008
My Bio
Everything I have known and experianced culturally and artistically has been Los Angeles and California. I am a native Angeleno born and raised here in the Pasadena area of the San Gabriel Foothills. I have devoted a great part of my life striving to find my medium. Dabbling in all ranges of art I have come to realize that the truest comfort of expression has come from the craft of acting. Never before have I felt more open to express my inhabitions then when I can collaberate with a group of Artist and build a character from the ground up. I feel the most comfortable and alive when I set foot on a stage or a set.
What are some things you're doing to help make this film?
I am an advid promoter of all things I hold to be true and valuble in my belief and idea structure.
Why are you supporting The 1 Second Film project?
If there is a community that thrives on spreading the good will of Artistic expression throughout the world then I'm game!

Mike Alva's Perfect Moment

If you had to choose a 'perfect moment' from your life to make into a one-second film, what would it be?

A perfect moment that comes to mind happened one week after I found a lost kitten alone in the mountains. I woke up on morning to find her sleeping next to me tucked under the covers with her head resting on my pillow. For one moment I layed there admiring her when she awoke, turned to me and licked my lip. It was that moment that I realized Ruthie rescued me just as much as I rescued her. We have been in love ever since.

I'm so glad you're participating in this! We had a really good time when you came out to the parade. Maybe in the spring we can come up with some way of promoting awareness of the 1 Second film at PCC.
