End of Summer 2010


I got the chance to be on “The Glades” this summer!  I was Jeff’s friend at his birthday party, I believe the episode was called “A Bird in the Hand”.

I got to be part of the Harry Potter Commercial, and booked a print job and an industrial as well. I’m most excited about the many film roles and the adventure they brought.

I had the exciting opportunity to be a stunt fighter in “The Cost of Vengeance”.  I got the chance to train and learn fight choreography for this role.

In “Strega”, I am Sebastian or Sebby the cameraman who is upset over being bewitched into a dog and then into his teenage self - you know, having to go through the horror of puberty again.

I participated in the Orlando 48 hour film project this year and played AJ a techie fall guy in “CyberPawn”.  My character got arrested just off Lake Eola and stopped traffic.  It was a great experience and hope to get the chance to do it again.

Another interesting role involved doing underwater filming where I play the dead and alive version of Michael in “Rust”. Michael is a young teenager in love who goes to great lengths to help his sweetheart. I underwent some scuba training for this role.

I got to play Special Agent Simon in “Kindred”, another Stories of the Paranormal production. I  also participated in a PSA for Torch Ministry directed at Mentoring Children of Incarcerated Parents.  I play a teen with a gun - yes, the bad guy.

I am continuing to do the voiceover role of Jerry in the internet webisode called “Soulmates”.

I took Lori Wyman’s workshop in Miami this summer, I continue to participate in a weekly improv workshop and take scene study and character development coaching at Star Catcher Studios.  I attended Karen Storms two day workshop this summer as well.

 I got the Craig Soldinger Memorial Educational Scholarship through the FMPTA. 
 I’ve also had many rehearsals and shoots.  I performed on stage with “Orlando the TV Show…on Stage” at the Cameo Theatre in downtown Orlando. 

I just finished shooting my scenes in  ”Street Villains” with Jet Black Productions.  I am Monty the copyboy.  
I also worked on another webisode called “Legend of the Stones”.  I am an annoying younger brother, Zeus.  
I played John, a spoiled rich young man, in “Fire Me, Please”.   

I also just got done playing a dark, twisted character called Todd Craven in “Saving Amy”.   I had to punch a mirror out for that role.  

We have just started shooting “Cost of Love” with JB Productions.  I play a nerdy kind of character called Joe.  

I am working with Full Sail again in a film called “John Tell” and I am….John Tell.  I am also working on another Full Sail film called “CSI: Jamaica” and I play Tommy the main character. 

I am working on another Stories of the Paranormal series called “Indigo”.  I am Ryder discovering my special ability.   

I have been having private acting sessions with a coach to help me prepare for roles and auditions. I attended an earprompter workshop with the Lisa Maile school.  I am also getting additional Improv training with Greg Johnson.

End of the First Year -2009


I completed another teleprompter workshop with WKMG and had the chance to attend a voiceover and hosting workshop with Cartwheel entertainment. 


I booked featured extra roles in the films “Havok” and “Opus”.  I am currently playing Ray (a supporting role) in the film “Tagged” shooting in Tampa.  

I played a zombie in an internet webisode titled “Zeik’s Bad Day”. 

I had some exciting supporting roles in a couple of internet episodes of “Stories of the Paranormal”.  In “Episode 8: The Watcher”  I play Danny and in “Episode 9: No Second Chances” I play Eric.  I get killed in both. 

I also had the opportunity to be in a few music videos as well!  I play the principal in John Wesley’s “Falling into Fallen”.  I was featured in Leethal Music’s “Give U My Life”  and in Little Italy aka L.I.’s “Ice Cream” music videos, both of which are posted on Youtube.  www.youtube.com/AJNickell  or www.facebook.com/ajnickell
.
 There was also an impromptu live webcam with L.I. after the screening of the video and it’s posted on www.justin.tv (link available from my Facebook or youtube page).

I had the chance to work with a green screen while doing a voiceover for a show promo for Cartwheel Entertainment as well.  

I also booked a print job for Blue Man Group’s Refresh campaign and had a blast! I have some exciting news. 

I got to play featured roles in two movies that I worked on in the fall.  I played Corey the bully in “Johnny Apocalypse” produced by Red Pencil Productions.  I also got to be the mean girl’s cute and cool boyfriend in “An Eye for an Eye” produced by Miami International University.

I attended John Peros’s Commercial Audition Workshop for Kids and Teens this month.  I also took some lessons to polish up on my skating skills.
