I had an interesting gig yesterday. It lasted all of maybe twenty minutes, fifteen of which were devoted to filling out the tax forms and whatnot. For the other five minutes, I sat at a table and pretended to pour sauce on imaginary food while a photographer filmed me at eleven frames per second. This footage, I’m told, will then be turned into an animated demo for executives to view and decide whether or not they want to go ahead and pay for a full commercial. It was completely low pressure, I got to wear my own clothes, and considering the time commitment it paid surprisingly well. So that’s fun. I would be okay with a few more gigs like that.
I almost landed an amazing voice over gig last week. I was told it was down to me and one other guy. I haven’t heard anything yet, though, so I’m not holding my breath on it.
I am sans temp assignments this week, which is both good and bad. It’s bad because, well, no money. It’s good because it’s given me a chance to catch my breath and take a good look at everything I’ve got coming up in the next month or so. It’s actually a pretty intense schedule. I’ve got The Crownless King still running through October 20th. At the same time, I’m rehearsing Street Justice: Condition Red, which goes into tech the weekend after TCK closes. Between those two I have to finish the next draft of A Tale of Two Cities so we can have a script read with the cast some time in there. (We start rehearsals in a little over two months. Yikes!) And to top it all off, I’ve got a first draft of a new adaptation due by October 31st.
I’m excited about all of it. I just need to find the time to make it happen. Wish me luck!
