August 30 & 31, September 1 & 2, I will be performing in the WORLD PREMIERE Production of an all-new musical play: ZENOBIA, by Lorrisa Julianas at Theatre On The Hill in Bolingbrook, IL. LINK: http://tothbolingbrook.com/Theatre-on-the-Hill/Zenobia_the_musical.html
I commonly describe my life as a film written by Stephen King, Produced by Gillermo Del Toro and Directed with all the 'HARD-R' wit and finesse of Quentin Tarantino.
I am an avid SCI-FI fanatic and film-freak. Many of my daily conversations contain references into the plots and characters of some of my most favorite films.
Professionally, I work a part-time job to pay the bills and am trying to get my animation ideas into written and then CG form.
I recently became a prominent member on the board of Spotlight Theater (Chicago Suburbs) and have joined Theatre On The Hill in Bolingbrook. I have fully embraced the fun, excitement, and sheer terror of rushing into production on a play with duct tape over my mouth and one hand tied behind my back - all the while trying to hurdle the great ravines of memory to recall my lines, lyrics, and dance moves, as well as character and emotional torments of my childhood...
More to come. For now, please check out my links and comment as you will (or not)!
Name: Xoandre Moats
Lives in: Naperville, Illinois
Occupation: Actor, Animator, Assistant Director, Author, Casting Director, Dialogue Editor, Director of Photography, Editor, First Assistant Camera, Host/presenter, Line Producer, Photographer (Still), Screenwriter, Script Consultant, Script Supervisor, Set Designer, Sound Editor, Special Effects Technician, Stunt Performer, Visual Effects Artist and Voice Artist
Unique traits: I am willing and ready to change my appearance for any role, with one minor exception: My hair is not to be CUT. I am able to cover it with a bald cap or a wig, and have no problem hiding it, but I will only ever cut it for the right role and a significant amount of monetary compensation. If this puts anyone off, please know that I have many tricks for masking the length of my hair and it should pose little issue. I encourage everyone to visit my Portfolio homepage (xoandre.us), and better yet, my Spoken Word Poetry/Songs page on ReverbNation (reverbnation.com/xoandremoats), where you are able to hear my writing style, as well as my vocal range and spoken word / singing talents.
