Tahun 2014 pas gw di Sydney, gw blg sma Tuhan.

“I want to meet Mas Dwi from Tetangga Masa Gitu. Soalnya dia keren, asik aktingnya. Would that be possible?”

Fast forward to 2017.

Gw ikutan casting yg gw ga tau apa awalnya tp gw keterima di gelombang ke 2. Gw dtg ke PHnya, turns out itu PH Imagine, dan nama castingnya adalah Zoom Me.

Gw ga kepikiran Zoom Me itu apa, gw kira itu buat iklan motorola so gw dtg aja.

Gw ikut castingny dan gw keterima sebagai membernya Zoom Me. Gw berhasil keterima dari 100 orang yang casting jd hanya 45 orang.

Hari minggu gw disuruh dtg lagi karena ada orientasi dan katanya nanti akan ada free acting lessons from the mind behind Zoom Me, yang turns out adalah Mas Dwi Sasono!

dan today, that wish came true. Not only that, in the future, dia bakalan ngajarin gw akting lessons for free, bits and pieces about showbiz and how to become a great actor, bagaimana jadi actor yang asik buat di ajak kerja sama dllnya. Which is exactly what I needed because i want to learn how to transition from theatre to film/tv/tvc actress. YASS!!

ZoomMe itu apa sih?

Zoom me adalah sebuah app / platform yang menghubungan PH (user) dengan talentnya langsung, jd talent yang tergabung gak perlu lagi ngantri2 ga jelas hanya untuk casting yang turns out ga jelas dan hanya buang2 waktu. Dengan Zoom Me, caster bisa dengan mudah dapat talent yang available dan talent pun bisa dapat role / extras role yang pasti untuk bermain karena Zoom Me bekerja sama dengan PH – PH besar, ternama, dan legit.

I’m seriously in awe and can’t wait what God has in store for me ahead.
Super grateful to be part of Zoom Me.

Fangirling Tips!

Hii dearzine, namaku Vania Christy R, biasa dipanggil Vania. Kenalan dulu yukk.. Aku skg sedang berkuliah di Wesley Institute Sydney, jurusan Theatre Practice. In the future, I want to be a theatre director, model, and actor I’m also interested in stage makeup –

Anywayy…

Kenapa sih aku nulis tips ketemu idola ini, kayak udah master aja.. Hehe – well, I wrote this tips based on my life experience ketemuan sma my fave ultimate boyband yg udah pensiun.. Westlife –

Tips ini boleh kamu pake atau kamu modifikasi sendiri, intinya saya hanya berbagi sedikit knowledge

β€’kΞ΅β€’, tnpa basa basi lagi, let’s start!

1) Biasakan dirimu ketemu berbagai artis! Or surround ur self di kalangan artis. Means, misalnya ikutan casting jadi model atau audisi sinetron atau audisi presenter.. Sampe ikutan nonton acara musik di TV juga bolee.. Yang penting kamu terbiasa ketemuan sama β€œArtis” / Artis Lokal yg terkenal – jadi kalo kamu nanti ketemu idola kamu yang sebenernya kamu udah biasa dan gak panikan histeris – disisi lain, kamu jadi terbiasa ngeliatin orang lain yang ketemu idolanya dan gimana histerisnya mereka – nah disitu kamu bisa do character analaysis / observe si fans itu – 1 point learned buat kamu deh.

+ Ada artis, pasti ada TV crew, reporter, sama journalis dong – nah kamu observe mereka juga – earsdropping diem2 info yang mereka tau apa, soalnya kadang mereka tau, kadang mereka gak, (khususnya buat media sponsorship yg emg singular sponsor buat si artis idola kamu) Ssst! Tapi jangan percaya media sepenuhnya. Krn mrk jg kyk kamu. Nyari informasi. Untuk mencapai kesuksesan kamu, kamu harus mau untuk β€œbertualang” dan memecahkan teka-teki

– My first artis itu Leonie Trio Kwek Kwek sama Nikita penyanyi rohani terkenal wktu itu, trus dari situ kebetulan adik bokap gw nikah sama adiknya Komeng, hehe – alias Komeng sodara jauh gw, dan pas Komeng ngondangan, banyak artis2 indo yg top dateng ke pernikahannya, alhasil gw koleksi ttd artis deh! Hihii – tp klo ga punya pengalaman gini, gpp, point no.1 itu penting

– Pengalaman big break gw ngejar artis itu pas menang tiket Meet and Greetnya Gareth Gates, bintang tamunya The Faders, disitu aku juga ketemuan sama The Faders juga. Soo itu pengalaman pertama deg2an, bingung mau kasih kado apa, ngebayangin foto bareng, dllnya hihii – tp dari situ aku belajar banyak, ketemuan sama artis luar negri (aku ga terlalu suka sama Gareth Gates, tp seneng juga menang, hehe) – sampe kenalan sama salah satu wartawan majalah terkenal di indonesia –

Note: Connection itu penting guys in the long run lhoo..

2) Belajar bahasa si artis. Gw bisa cuap2 lancar bahasa inggris krn gw niat banget, suatu saat nanti pas gw ketemu, gw udah siap dan bisa jd satu2nya fans yg spik2 lancar. Hehe. Kan lmyan menarik perhatian si artiss

3) Hari H sudah menjelang, tinggal beberapa minggu lagi! Nah, pasti dongg.. Kamu pengen ngasih kado, tulisan, memoir, etc2nya apalagi tanda tangan, pelukan, foto bareng, bahkan sampe ciuman #lho – Anyway, tips ini yang paling penting.

PREPARE.

Siapin semua senjata andalan kamu:

1) Kamera (klo perlu semua kamera yang kamu punya standby dan battnya harus penuh! Jangan mengunderestimate β€œah masih penuh, ntar aja dichargenya”, semalem sblm hari H harus di charge + bawa powerbank and extra battery)

– Pengalaman ngejar Westlife di Irlandia, kamera di hp bb sama iphone standby, trus aku punya samsung yg bisa self shot sama kodak video kamera, smuanya standby. Tp kamera hp emang diandelin bgt wktu itu.

SPIDOL PERMANEN – Yg hitam atau biru. Very important. Klo perlu beli yg baru dan di test sebelum kalian berangkat dan selalu standby di kantong celana kamu

PAKE COSTUM YG COMFY. Ngejar artis itu kayak ngejar Jokowi yg ga bisa ditebak hihi. Soo, ga usah mikir mau cantik2an dan dandan menor buat ketemuan sama idola. Dandan biasa aja, pake sepatu keds yg nyaman, jeans, dan atasan yg simple tapi presentable. Klo kamu pake TShirt ada gambar idola kamu, bakalan ketauan bgt klo km disitu buat ngejar mereka..kl msalnya masih mau pake itu, tutup pake jaket trus klo udh ketemu baru deh dibuka buat foto! Hihii..

Sorry to say, banyak fans yang dandananya over the top dah kyk mau ke pesta, sbnrnya hal ini ga perlu, just dress up simple, nice, and presentable. Jd kliatan klo kamu artis jugaa

Fun Fact:

-Ssst.. Pernah waktu ketemuan sama Georgina, istrinya Nicky Byrne sma Nicky sendiri, krn ga sempet mandi, cuz time is really important, gw cuman cuci muka, pake parfum, rambut rapi, udah cabutt..

KADO. Klo mau kasih kado, kasih kado yg simple, yg artisnya bisa liat kado mu dan langsung dia bawa. Lebih bagus lg klo itu item kesukaannya

-Pernah kasih kado buat Brian McFadden, dia terima tapi dia taro di lantai trus pas dia udah mau manggung, dia lupa. It’s important to know the manager too – jd bisa nitip. Tp klo tour managernya killer kayak Westlife / bodyguardnya killer, mending disimpen trus dikasih langsung ke artisnya.

SIAPIN BUDGET. Ngikutin gaya hidup si artis ga semurah yg kamu kira. Penting buat misalnya kamu in disguise pura2 mau daftar spa tapi sebenernya kamu punya feeling idola kamu ada disana – budget nginep di hotel tmpt si idola.

EARSDROPPING. Banyak fans yang gather around, banyak stalker yang panikan di depan lift, atau depan hotel dllnya. Musti berani buat step up the game. Banyak mendengar diam2 like a snake, trus klo misalnya lu dpet info pasti tuh artis ada di hotel A, dan itu udah bener2 pasti, (sering banyak rumor yg beredar soal keberadaan artis) preferable to jd guest di hotel tersebut, bukan buat se-satu lantai sama artis, krn ini ga bakalan mungkin. Tapi buat supaya kamu punya akses lalu lalang di hotel tersebut. Atau klo ga ada budget, pura2 aja masuk ke hotel cafenya order orange juice sambil ngamatin sekitar..

!! Kita bukan stalker, tapi kita pengejar mimpi. And making that dreams come true.

TRUST YOUR INSTINCT. What your gut tell you, follow it.

SOO. Pas kamu udah di deket si artis.

Kalkulasiin, dari mana si artis itu bakalan masuk, apa kamu di bagian depan, atau tengah atau belakang di antara kerumunan fans yg menggila. Selalu pastiiin kamu di depan. Jalan aja biasa, ga usah takut. Karena yg di depan dapet duluan

Dan pas kamu udah ketemu si artis, jangan teriak histeris atau panik. Act normal, calm down, and treat them as human or ur long lost friend.

Klo misalnya udah mulai deg2an (pasti inii) take a deep breath, drink water, have tissue beside you, have your camera ready, spidol ready, dan jauh2 sebelumnya practice your speech yg mau kamu tell to ur idol. Then SNAP! Dapet deh mimpi kamu dan kamu pulang tersenyum bahagiaaaaaaaaaa

IMPORTANT.

You have to respect the artist privacy, jgn pushy. Klo dia keliatan lagi sibuk, kamu biasa aja, dan approach dia baik2 secara sopan. He/she will appreciate you and show them that you are a real true fan of them. -One of the example pas ketemuan sama Jodi Albert, istrinya Kian. She was busy, then I greet her politely and ask permission if I could take a picture with her or record the video for Kian’s fans in Indonesia, she refused and I respect her decision. I ended up talking with her like a friend and was able to talk about her motherhood.

Last but not least, PRAY. Always involved God in your journey and search for your idol. If this something that you’ve been longed for, foorr so long and God said yes, you will eventually get it. Xxx

Good luck in chasing your dreams and making it happen x.

Concert Review: Brian McFadden at Revesby Workers Club Sydney 2013

On Friday, 15th March 2013, Brian McFadden, the ex-Westlife singer, was scheduled to perform his first solo show with his new album, Irish Connection. Just two days after he finished his FIRES LIVE Tour with Ronan Keating in Perth.

Irish Connection was released on 4th March 2013 in Australia wide. For his fans in Indonesia, the album has not released yet but it is confirmed that they are still working on progress to release his Irish Connection album in Indonesia.

The concert was scheduled at 8PM sharp and the setting of the venue was very relaxed, like a pub with tables and chairs. Brian McFadden tweeted, β€œJust like a wedding!” – Just a few minutes before the show starts. This was not his first show in Revesby Workers Club, back in 2008, he performed here with his album, β€œSet in Stone.” The concert was open with an opening act of Chris G and it was set in this acoustic sets. The opening act was lasted for an hour and there was an interval in between the opening act and the real show.

Brian showed up at 9PM sharp and his first opening song was Real to Me from his first album, Irish Son – After the song has finished, he baffled around on how this concert looks like singing in the wedding and he also did his stand up comedy about his Ronan Keating accent. Everyone had a laugh about his sense of humor and was continuing to sing along with him to the next 12 songs that he is scheduled to sing.

In the second song, Twisted, the song that he produced and wrote, he forgot some of the lyrics and looked to the audience who were singing along with him to help him remember the lyrics. What was funny that night, when he forgot the lyrics on his own song, he baffled around on how old he is now and that he was easily forgot and everybody in the audience was having a good laugh about it.

In the middle of the show, he was sharing his confusion to the audience with his jokes that he had 5 to 6 songs more to go and that he still got the time when he finished his 5 to 6 songs, so he decided to just talk to the audience and Vogue McFadden, his wife was there to watch him perform alongside with his mates and his band mates.

There’s one funny moment, when he was about to sing Just Say So from his Wallz of Sounds album, when the band started the song, it was up beat tempo, and Brian was singing towards the songs, and he felt something wrong in there, and he was like, β€œWait a minute, that is a wrong beat!” and he took off his shoes and sounded to us – the audience β€œHere comes a bit of reality show!” – then he throw his shoes to his lead guitar player and told him that was a wrong tempo! And all of us in the audience were having a great laugh all about it, then the band slows down the tempo while Brian McFadden still checking if it’s the right tempo or not, then he sing along.

When the audience realized that this song is actually Just Say So in a slow motion, everybody was excited and dance with it, even Brian McFadden it self was teasing us – the audience with his dancing on stage – and his wife was laughing all about it. We were having a real blast that night. In this relax environment, we were allowed to drink alcohol or even eat popcorn during the show, just like a wedding.

He finishes his last song with Flying Without Wings – we can really tell who was the real Westlife fan in the room – we all singing along to this amazing old tunes. He unfold the song into more an acoustic sound which brings the justice to the song really well. For all of us, who misses Brian singing in Westlife, this song can bring those past memories back and made us want to hear more about it. He is been a really great ambassador to Westlife for all his fans and audience in Australia who didn’t really know much about Westlife.

When Brian left the stage after his last song, the audiences left with a big smile on their face and were agree that his humble personality just brings joy and fun to the room and his creativity in his music has made him a true genuine musician.

1) Real to Me (from his first album, Irish Son)
