10:06am: One of my commercial agent, Alicia, leaves a voicemail early this morning. The news is that Francene Selkirk’s office for Sprint wants to see a few people for another audition. So I need to go to the set where they are shooting to audition for the director, producer, ad agency, etc.
When I arrived I find that it’s a different commercial all together. Six actors showed up and I believe 3 will be cast. Basically, they were going to have us read, wait around if we wanted and a decision would be made relatively quickly. Wardrobe will be this afternoon and it’ll shoot tomorrow.
Callback: “Sprint” @ Francene Selkirk Casting. I was having a world of trouble executing the text and when I got in the room…I felt myself going down in flames.
After the audition I chatted with one of the production guys that I know from back in New York and then went home. I just didn’t feel that great about my performance. Of course, if by chance, I got the job I’d drive back over the hill with a big smile on my face. If not, NEXT!
So I went home, licked my wounds, and got on with my day. A few hours later, to my big surprise, I got a call from my agent telling me that I have been booked on the spot! So I drove to my agents office to sign paperwork for it and back to the set for a wardrobe fitting. Yeah!
