So it’s Saturday and I’m attending a class with a Casting Director. It’s 10AM, and I’m worried because I have an audition for Sketchers at 11AM across town… and least 25 minutes away. The class ends at 1PM… so if I stay the entire class, I won’t be able to audition.
I quickly get into gear and ask the class moderator if I could do my scene with the casting director first, since I have an audition to attend. He was cool about it and allowed me to go first and told me to leave when I wanted… awesome!
So I do my scene (went great!) and I run over to my 11AM appointment. I arrive just in time…. I do my ‘thang’ and I go home.
The Sketchers commercial breakdown said it was shooting on Tuesday… so I figured that if I got the job, I would be notified on Sunday. Well, Sunday came and went so I thought I didn’t get the gig.
But then, my agent calls me at 11:30AM on Monday and says “they want to book you!”. Woohooo!
So on Tuesday at 6AM, I show up at the Brooklyn Bridge. My scene is to walk and cuddle (because it’s cold!) with Erin West, my cute costar for the commercial. So for about 2 hours, we walked down the Brooklyn Bridge as if we were a couple and delivered our lines to the camera. By 8:30AM, we were wrapped! For your non-industry folk, that is a very fast shoot day.
Erin was great and we had a great time… and we even have new shoes (thanks Sketchers)!
