DA MAN: How was your overall experience making “Greenhouse Academy”? Dallas Hart:
it was honestly an incredible time from the very start. the casting process was intense, but i knew this character was right for me. When it got down to the last few they sent us some scripts to read to get a better feel for the characters. in one script they had lyrics for one of the songs leo sings and so i decided to compose a song on the guitar along with the lyrics provided. i honestly think it was what got me the part. Filming in tel aviv was magical. it was like a vacation and my dream job all mixed into one. this project allowed me to check off a lot of my career goals and i had to set even higher objectives.
My character on the show is also a musician so i have a couple songs in the show as well. i didn’t even know i was singing the title song until after i recorded it in the studio. they were shooting the clips for the title sequence and the song started playing and i looked to giora [chamizer], the creator of “greenhouse academy,” and he just nodded his head. i froze because i realized how big this show was going to be, and that i was singing the title song!
i’ve been acting as long as i can remember. i would always make films as a kid starting with a short called “the Frog hunter” stemming from my obsession with “the crocodile hunter” [Steve irwin]. he was my childhood hero. i did a lot of theater but never really saw myself becoming an actor professionally until i went to an acting camp in l.a. where i was signed to an agency on the spot. it’s been an extremely difficult path but unbelievably fulfilling and i can’t see myself doing anything else. this is what i was made for.
Short term is to keep acting as much as i can. each character adds a whole new outlook on life that helps me in my career and even in my personal life. i would be on set all the time if i could. in the long run i hope to be creating my own content. i have a lot of scripts that i’m hoping to produce and that takes a lot of work and time to even get started. i have always loved every part of the entertainment industry. Writing, filming, acting, editing, photography and pretty much anything artistic. it’s fun being a Jack of all trades, but i’d at least consider myself a master of some rather than none.
Jon Bellion is one of my all-time favorite people in the entire world, ever. his music and the way he creates it is incredible; and he writes from the heart. however owl city is my number one music inspiration. the music adam young creates is very underappreciated and it’s the music he doesn’t even release to the mainstream that caught my attention. it’s so unique and i can really feel what he’s feeling in every song. there’s too many to
