We had the good fortune of connecting with Blair Hall and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Blair, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?
The reason I choose the creative career is that I wanted to wake up and do something I am passionate about. When I am on sets, no matter if I am acting or moving a key light I feel like I’m in my purpose. There is no better feeling than to make something and to feel proud of what you accomplished. Being able to take characters off of a page and make them feel human is a great joy.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
When I am acting, I feel at peace. To be creative is something special for me not just to say I made something or worked on a project, but to be in my purpose, that’s another level of happiness. I got into acting because of my love of film and directing. I took an acting class so I could direct my actors better but from there, it just took hold of me and became my passion. This journey hasn’t been the easiest because of all the no’s but every no was a lesson that makes me stronger every day. I overcome my challenges by staying consistent and having a community that wants to see me win and vice versa. One thing that I want the world to know about my story is to never let an obstacle make you stagnant. We all have them and when they arise they can knock you down but once you gather yourself, get up, dust yourself off, and keep moving forward.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
One of my favorite spots in Atlanta is the Beltline. There is so many interesting nooks there that you can get into. Whether you want fine dining, shopping for the latest trends, or just relaxing and shooting the breeze its the spot you. I enjoy it because i can make lasting memories by simply walking the trail. I also love to people watch. I use it to add to the different characters when I’m building out my character arcs for work.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to shout out The Booking Room ATL. This group is my family. I go there every Sunday to shape my skills and become a better storyteller, hell a better human there. I have forged new friendships that I cherish deeply, that when I am in need they will definitely be there.
