Wow!Today I had a great conference call
with 2 of my 3 brothers about the possibility of working together in the future
in business.Honestly, I couldn’t
have imagined it going any better than it did.I’m really excited for the future!
else interesting happened today.I
stopped by my old job to say “good-bye” to a manager who was leaving and my
former senior manager asked if I was interesting in returning to work…I wasn’t sure if she was kidding or
not, but I like to have options.I
responded, “Hey, ya never know…”
Airlines” @ LAX.This day on set,
for me, was a great reminder that this “acting stuff” isn’t necessarily
easy.It’s the professionals that
make it look easy.
of the day went great, but a few times I had a bit of difficulty giving the
director exactly what he needed from me to get the shot.It was just a reminder to ALWAYS bring
my “A game” to set class, auditions, callbacks, shoots and just life in
general.Eventually, we got the
shots we needed and wrapped a long 12+ hours day.Good stuff!
My cell phone rings and
it’s my commercial agency.My
first thought is that it’s concerning the Southwest Airlines avail.As usual I let it go to voicemail.
I have a good indication if it’s a booking or an avail release by the amount of
time it takes for the voice mail message to come through.
it’s between 5 and 15 seconds I’m pretty sure the message is “Hey Stephon, it’s
Xxxx from KMR and I’m sorry, but unfortunately you’ve been released from the
XXXX avail.We’ll get the next
if the message takes longer to arrive, 30 seconds to 1 minute, it’s usually good/great
news.That means either another
callback or a booking!This
message took more than 30 seconds.
Yay!It was one of my wonderful, long-time
agents, Brooke, giving me the great news that I had been booked on the
Southwest Airlines commercial!So,
booking part used to make me feel as though “I’d won!”.These days it makes me feel as though…”I’m
my opinion booking the job is about 80% of where I’m trying to go.I say that because just because an
actor books a job doesn’t mean that actor will get to the wardobe fitting for
that job.I’ve experienced being
“unbooked” an hour before the wardrobe fitting in the past.Ouch.With that, I have my fingers crossed while hoping for the
“Acer” @ ASG Casting. Wow, I
haven’t been to this casting office in a good little while. I’m glad to be back! http://www.stephonfuller.com
“Bosch” @ Schiff/Audino Casting.Aw
man!I was so ready for
this.The first take was good I
thought.I got a redirect from the
director, which is a good sign I think, but then I fumbled a line!NOOOO!C’mon man!I
can’t afford to blow opportunities like that.
Callback!“Southwest Airlines” @ Cathi Carlton
Casting.I felt pretty good about
this one I must say.Of course
that means nothing other than I feel pretty good about it.We’ll see…
call from my commercial agency that I’ve been placed on avail for “Southwest
Audition: ”Gortimer Gibbon’s
Life on Normal Street” @ Koczara/Shevchenko Casting.Geez, I would really like to book this role.I think I’m perfect for the part and
did great in the room.Not sure
what else I could’ve done.At the
very least I hope they’ll keep me in mind for future roles and bring me back in
soon to audition for the show again.
