Today I had a commercial callback for Kay Jewelers at Michael Sanford Casting. A rule of thumb is to always wear the same outfit to the callback that you wore to the original audition. I would have preferred to put on a nicer outfit, but I decided to stick with the jeans and cardigan I wore originally when I went to the audition straight from work.
My callback was at 11 am. It was going to be tight, I had a 2PM flight out of LAX. So I arrived at the callback 20 minutes early and signed in.
I found out quickly that they were behind schedule…45 minutes behind. So all I could do is wait. I didn’t want to get myself all worked up about the time crunch because that would throw off my callback. And I was thrilled to be there. Any chance to book a commercial I am grateful for So I chatted with a couple of girls in the waiting room And a nice girl even let me go ahead of her.
The callback went great. Michael welcomed me into the room where I met the director. The clients were there as well. Commercial callbacks are interesting. As usual, the clients were all typing away on their computers when I walked in. The director directs and they watch on the monitor.
I director seemed to like me. He was very complimentary. I was even asked to use a couple different pieces of jewelry.
When I left the callback I didn’t have a lot of time to get to the airport. Instead of parking at the flyaway I drove straight to LAX. By the Grace of God I made it to the airport an hour before my plane took off. And I made my flight!
What a day!
