Excited for that of course. This week alone is busy with things besides auditions. Which is good. Keeps me on my toes.
Good times with good actors and actresses for the WaterO photo shoot. One of the few last gigs I shot before leaving to Chicago. I hope all is well with them.
A few things going last August, which of this writing was only a day ago. I had a few self submit auditions but of course I didn't get the parts. The "life of an actor" haha. It's September and if I'm correct, When November hits, it starts to get a bit colder.
During Winter I plan to make my own video clips. What's stopping me from doing it now? I have no idea! I should get on that ASAP!!!
I've been trying really hard to find more modeling jobs. It's not as easy. There just isn't much modeling work. Chicago isn't known for its modeling. When I do find something that I would love to model for, they're looking for someone who's basically not me. As in Caucasian, 6+ feet, etc. I still email them however, because that's how you have to do it! I might not fit the part but I can at least make them remember me or possibly have them consider me for future parts.
I was trying to us an ear prompter so I didn't have to memorize my script. I suck at it... I pay attention to my voice for too long that I don't speak haha. I'd rather use a teleprompter.
Either way both of them I need practice on.
It's easy for some, not for others. Like me...
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.
A goal of becoming an Actor and/or Model. :D
