Wow, this week has been wonderful! I have been auditioning for projects left and right. What a blessing!
First, KSR Models sent me out on a Print Audition for Mucinex. The audition was at Armstrong Casting and this is the second time Casting Director Yvonne Armstrong has invited me to a print audition. The wardrobe was casual. I arrived at the audition and scanned the room, 8 brunettes and I was the only blonde. As I waited, a couple more women arrived, one more blonde and the rest brunettes. Blonde is really out for commercial work this year, but I can’t let that worry me. I just have a do the best I can do and let it go after that.
Next stop was CAZT Casting Facility. Lucky for me, CAZT was only a 15 minute drive from Armstrong Casting (It doesn’t always work out this way, usually I have auditions on opposite ends of the city!). This was my first time auditioning at CAZT and there were 4 different projects casting at this facility. The project I was called in for was called “Pigeon Kicker”, produced by Jim Marnell. I was called in for the role of Ms. Sullivan, a psychiatrist, and was asked to wear glasses for the audition. Everyone was really friendly, and I felt good about my audition for “Pigeon Kicker”.
As I was getting ready to leave, I noticed an AFI project that I had submitted for was also auditioning at the CAZT facility. The project is called “Little Black Dress” and is about a cynic at a wedding who ends up meeting her match. I had been really interested in this project when I saw it on Actors Access and was instantly disappointed that I had not been called in to read for the role of Katy. So, I took a risk and stuck around for the audition anyways. Sides were available for the project, so I looked them over and waited for my name to be called. When it was my turn, I was honest with the director and producer, I told them I was at CAZT for another project, but was very interested in their project as well and then I asked if I could read for them. I knew it was a bit of a risk, and they could have said no, but they were really cool and told me I could audition.
I’m glad I stuck around and auditioned for “Little Black Dress”. Not only did I feel good about my read, but as I was leaving I bumped into a girl that I had worked in a Theme Park Entertainment Show with when I was in college! I haven’t talked to her in years and I didn’t even know that she was in LA. I look forward to catching up with her.
Overall, what a great day!
