More Actor Ramblings

Well, turns out the cast my part in The Metrosexual before I even got to audition. I was pretty depressed when my agent called with that news. I'm prepared for not getting anything I audition for, even a third callback...but I wasn't prepared to get the call that the audition was cancelled. For some reason that stings a lot more.

But...the pilot is going well. I'm very involved and have pretty much become the casting director now. It's fun to have agents and managers calling me and kissing up. It's a strange industry that can turn on a dime like that. I'm holding auditions tomorrow for three roles...then I have an audition in LA tomorrow night and another on Friday. I'm learning that the more roles you can play (not actor "roles", but business "roles") the better your odds all around.

I've started looking for a manager this week as well. I've never had one because every agent I've ever had had convinced me that I don't need to give away another 10-15%. I'm not desperate for one, but I'm looking for some help to break into the networks.

Eli has been sick and home from school for two days. He seems almost back to normal tonight though (fighting with Aidan and all that.)

Off to watch LOST now...it has been nice to watch TV this season. It's the first autumn in three years that I haven't been stuck in the basement of the RIO every evening.

I keep meaning to tell you... log in to your blogger account, and under settings, and then under comments, make sure that YES is checked for "Show Word Verification for Comments." Very important if you don't want a little adversitement comment with every post. :-)

Nice to hear you have some free time in the evenings. I have been enjoying that these days. We are gigging way less. Nice family time.

You're watching TV now, but someday we'll be watching you on TV. :-)

Just heard that "Metrosexual" has new CDs and they are looking for a name actor for the role of Eric. Crzy Business.

Salut � tous, si vous �tes � la recherche d'une opportunit�voip de business pas contraignant, et sans besoin de vous d�placer, je vous recommande de vous lancer dans le callback t�l�phonique.
En effet, je suis tomb�e sur un site tr�s int�ressant:"miamitelecom", qui propose des partenariats dans ce domaine, sans ou presque, apport financier initial.
Pour ceux qui ne connaissent pas, le callback est un syst�me de code ou de cartes t�l�phoniques (au choix), qui permet de t�l�phoner � l'�tranger � tr�s bas prix!!
Ces avantages: -1 seul num�ro utilisable � partir de n'importe quel t�l�phone, n'importe o� dans le monde. Ceci est tr�s avantageux pour les personnes qui voyagent beaucoup du fait de leur travail, ou pour celles vivant dans un pays pas tr�s d�velopp� en mati�re de t�l�communication par exemple.
- communication tr�s nette, contrairement au VOIP (=par liaison internet, ce qui n'est pas du tout satisfaisant!!)
- Beaucoup moins couteux qu'un appel classic
- C'est vous qui d�cidez combien et quand vous voulez recharger en terme de temps de communication ( par le biais de carte bancaire ou autre)
En ce qui me concerne, j'en fais l'exp�rience en ce moment, et c'est un secteur en pleine expansion ( je distribue des acc�s surtout � des chefs d'entreprises, parcourrant la plan�te, ce qui leur permet d'�tre joint � n'importe quel moment sur un m�me num�ro!)
Je cible surtout l'Afrique en g�n�ral, et j'ai vu mon chiffre d'affaires exploser en quelques mois!
Si vous �tes int�ress�s, vous pouvez contacter Mr Corona de ma part (johanna), par mail � l'adresse suivante:www.callback@miamitelecom.com
Pour plus d'informations, vous pouvez aussi vous r�f�rer au site http://www.miamitelecom.comhttp://www.miamitelecom.com
Je vous recommande de vous y int�resser, cela peut vous rapporter gros!!!
Pour finir, et juste pour info, la soci�t� � ouvert un autre d�partement qui vaut le d�tour: http://www.miamicall.usvoip
Bien � vous.
Cordialement.
Johanna.....
