Just came back. I love those early ones. This one in particular was even better because this location was super duper extraordinary like a strawberry close. If I hit all green lights, I could get there in 4 minutes. 8 min if I hit all red lights. Still good though! On top of that, free parking on the street! As opposed to paid parking or the worst of all, residential parking with sticker only permits.
It was a great weekend. I had a 2 day shoot with the company www.buildordie.com.
The crew was AMAZING. Everyone was down to Earth and they were really fun to be around with. They took their time but made sure quality was numero uno!
I worked with another talent. He was a super great guy. We had a lot of down time so we talked all the time. All sorts of subjects. I hope to see you again soon!
What feels good is that it was just the two of us instead of something like Chicago Med, PD, and Fire where it's like 60 people in a room just sitting around in the corner. We had nice couches, plenty of drinks and some snacks and good AC. :D
Here's a photo of us at the final and end of the day. Good luck guys and gals and I hope to work with all of you again in the future.
In terms of auditions that is. I was put "on call" for a role which I hope I get. I won't put my hopes up but, it's nice to know I was able to make a good impression in the 1st round audition and they're considering me for the part.
Had a quick audition today which went well. Pretty much I just took pictures and we'll see from there haha. Summer in Chicago sure knows how to bring out the work.
Had a fun, really really quick two day shoot. On the first day I saw some familiar faces and was happy to be able to work with them again. I also met some new comers to the industry. Best of luck to all of you and hope to see you again!
A heavy rainy day and an audition today. Good thing I had an umbrella in my car.
Had a stellar time today working with yet again another great and oh so awesome cast and crew. Everyone was super chill, the aura was chill, the vibe was chill, everything was...chilll.
Can't wait to see the finished product even if I'm cut from it lol.
Good luck to all you guys and gals that I worked with today! I'll most likely see you in the future on the next project!
My hairs a mess.
One of the guys I worked with before, pictured below a few days ago, was there as well. Always great to work with him again. As well as the crew and talent. Met a lot of new faces and as well as some familiar ones.
This month is over and now on to the next month.
I was supposed to have this shoot on Tues but it was postponed to today. I met lots of great people. I was one of the principle models out of 11 I believe. Feels good.
There were about 30-40 extras. Each with a story to tell. I only talked to a few since there were so many. The cruise was an architectural cruise down the river walk. It was very entertaining. I really enjoyed it.
I hope I don't get a tan. I'm sure a lot of you don't know my situation with my skin but a tan is a problem for me. Why didn't I wear a hat? Because they didn't want me to wear my hat for the shoot. Did I apply sun screen? Yes I did but I was in direct sun light for over an hour and sunscreen doesn't really stop a tan when constantly being battered by the sun. Did I reapply? I couldn't because the shoot was continuous and I couldn't reapply when I needed to.
Luckily I applied a lot before we went out but... I still feel bad behind my neck. I guess it's time to rip my skin off and make anew.
To all the talent that does this full time and the talent that only does this type of thing once in a while, I wish all of you good luck!
As for the production crew including Melanie, you were all fantastic! I hope to work with all of you again! Everything was fast and well organized.
A goal of becoming an Actor and/or Model. :D
