I walk into the audition room and am invited to sit across the desk from the casting director.  They look me up and down, lean in and out. “Ooooooooooooo.  You’re interesting.  You look like you could have just come straight out of Middle Earth.”

Stopwatch 4

12:00 – I plan my escape.  I’m at work on a sunny afternoon.

Two days before I submit to a casting call.  The next day they reply with the offer of an audition.  The casting session is the following day from 12-2.  I have to work, but it just so happens that my lunch break is from 12:15-1.  Perfect!  Time is tight, and the location is several major blocks away, but I love a good challenge.  I decide to go for it.

Easy come easy go

I open my facebook at 11:32am.  There is a message from a casting director I’ve worked with several times before.  It was sent at 2am.  She has a music video gig for me in 36 hours.  They got it on short notice and need to fill out the cast.  She has two roles that I would be good for, and she wants to hire me, now.  No audition necessary.  They know me, they like me, they trust me, and they’ll pay me x-amount of money.  I take 3 seconds to consider.  I’ll have to reschedule a dentist appointment, which will probably cost me $75, and find someone to cover my shift at work the next day, which will probably be impossible.  I’m in.

2013 has been very good for me.  I wanted to update you all on what I’ve been working on.  This February I had the incredible opportunity to play a starring role in a new sci-fi / post-Apocalypse web series called Darkest Times.  It was a bit of a roller coaster ride, and definitely an experience I’ll never forget.  It was a LOT of hard work and dedication by a number of talented and creative cast and crew members.  It was not an easy shoot, but nothing good comes easily.  🙂

The plan was simple.  My shift ended at 8pm, the party started at 8pm, and the venue was only a couple of blocks away from work.  Punch out, throw on a dress, touch up my makeup, and make it to the 16th Annual Young Filmmakers Party just fashionably late.  Seems simple enough, right?  I’m sure you know where this is going…

I recently attended a unique and helpful lecture at The Second City Training Centre on how to make a go of it in L.A.  The Q&A style talk was presented by the lovely and talented Ayumi Iizuka.  Ayumi was a former instructor of mine at The Second City.  Shortly after that she headed for L.A. and now has about two years of on the ground experience to draw from.
