So I got an email this evening from David, one of my theatrical agents, and in the subject line, in all caps, it reads: ARE YOU AVAIL TO SHOOT GENERAL HOSPITAL 5/12?
Well, I checked my schedule and the answer is…
I emailed him back that, I am available to work on General Hospital on 5/12! His response was: “Sending your reel. They will book off of that. They wanted to know if you were available before I sent it. Fingers crossed.”
My immediate thought was…what reel? My demo reel is so old that I forget that I even have one. It’s been so long since I’ve booked anything that was “reel worthy” so I just keep what I’ve got. I had hair back then!
My next thought was: Oh no! Might I actually LOSE this job (that I haven’t yet booked) BECAUSE of my reel??? Alright, stop it Stephon, and let the cards fall where they may. So that’s what I did.
Audition: “Bank of America” @ Cathi Carlton Casting. I swear; it seems like every time I audition for a Bank of America commercial I am perfect for it! One of these days I’m going to book one. They seem to run a lot and that, of course, is what we hope for as commercial actors.
I also started my 4-week voiceover class tonight which went really well. I HAVE to diversify my talents in the business and v/o is an area I’d like to expand into. It’s not at all easy, but I want to remain committed to learning the craft.
