2011 in review – Crunching the numbers of my blog…

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 8,500 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

2011 – a year in Review :)

A year ago I gave this blog as a present to myself. A lot has happened in a year most of which I have captured here in 41 posts, videos and pictures. I appreciate everyone reading and commenting and never would I guess that this blog would have generated close to 10,000 views. I put together a year in review video. I hope you enjoy it. I also have to give credit to my Momanager (a term used to describe a Mom who is also a Manager). She has helped me with all the administrative details on this blog, my facebook fan page, Youtube, Twitter and my IMDb page.  Happy Holidays everyone and lets all have a wonderful 2012! ~Meredith

Boston Entertainment News – Meredith Prunty

Recently I was interviewed by Hopkinton Television Station HCAM. There are two versions of the interview. I attached the short edition as the long edition is not available yet. I enjoy talking to the media because it gives me an opportunity to discuss my acting career but also the social issues that trouble me such as bullying and child trafficking.  Additional interviews are scheduled with various media outlets so stay tuned!

Boston’s Meredith Prunty Headed For Movie Stardom

This is an article from the Hopkinton Patch http://hopkinton.patch.com/articles/hopkintons-meredith-prunty-headed-for-movie-stardom

Meredith is off to Romania to film ‘Abused in America.’ This Hopkinton High School cheerleader got noticed making a video and hopes this new role will further her career.

 Name: Meredith Prunty

Age: 15

Grade: Freshman

School: Hopkinton High School

Accomplishment: After several years of pounding the pavement and going on auditions, Meredith Prunty has scored the role of Valerie in the major motion picture, Abuse in America, which is based on real stories of child abuse. She will be leaving in days to begin shooting in the Romanian city of Brasov.

“I’m so excited about the opportunity,” said Prunty. “It’s perfect as well because I prefer more serious roles, although I’m obviously taking whatever comes at me now.”

Key to Awesomeness: Throughout her burgeoning acting career, Prunty has been inspired by her grandmother, Donna, a former psych nurse who began going on acting auditions after retiring in her 70s. Donna has since gone on to score a Screen Actors Guild card by appearing as an extra in movies including Pink Panther 2 and Real Men Cry.

“Both she and my mom have been so incredibly supportive throughout this,” said Prunty. “If I ever have a question about a role or anything else, they’re happy to help out. I couldn’t have done this without them.”

Prunty’s role in Abused came largely in part through her starring role in Michael and Marisas anti-bullying music video, The Same.

Initially on set as an extra for the day, Michael convinced the director to have Meredith take on the role of a student who is bullied. The video has since gone on to appear on CNN and Yahoo!Kids, and even reached as far as dek-d.com, one of the most popular web sites in Thailand.

“The success of the video was totally unexpected for me,” Meredith said. “I was expecting some hits on YouTube, but certainly not for it to go global. A lot of people have recognized me because of that video.”

Prunty is also an active participant on the varsity cheerleading team at Hopkinton High, having taken part in the state championships earlier in March.

“I come from a gymnastics program and already had the tumbling down, but cheerleading is way more fun for me because there’s a whole support system involved,” Prunty said. “Between cheerleading and acting, that’s pretty much my life at this point.”

‘No childhood storybook romance in film’

 Hi Everyone ! I have attached an article that was recently published on the Toronto Pictures network (link attached). The more I learn about Daria and Bruno – the more impressed I am by their commitment to change the world and make it a better place. I will be playing “Valerie” in this movie – a runaway trying to make it on the streets. You can see my picture below (2nd from right). I have been doing my research on child abuse and runaways  – I owe it to this production and to all the victims of child abuse to bring a great performance. I am also trying to arrange an interview with a runaway who had been living on the streets and currently is at a Boston shelter. I am throwing myself 150% into this role – I might appear to be “in character” on and off the set as we are filming as these emotions are not always easily turned off and on. I am looking forward to joining the crew soon in Brosov and taking my place in history.

Toronto Pictures new film “Abused in America”

I leave for Romania soon to play the role of  Valerie  in Toronto Pictures new film Abused in America. I am very impressed that Daria Trifo is so compassionate about Human rights and uses her smart business sense to make successful movies that embrace social issues. I admire successful women and try to learn from them. I look forward to working with both her and Bruno Pischiutta next month and am honored to be cast out of thousands who auditioned for my role. I plan to blog along the way about my adventures in Romania and on the film set. Due to a non-disclosure form I will limit my writings to approved subjects and I will also post a lot of pictures of beautiful Romania. I hope you enjoy it as much as I know I will!
