Today I had a commercial callback a Hallmark Commercial at Shane Casting. What a treat. This is my first time auditioning for this office and I was called back as well.
The callback was running behind schedule, but I was happy to be there. I chatted with the other actors in the room. I noticed there were not a lot of blondes in the room. I’m guessing they are looking for brunettes, but I was lucky to get the callback as well.
Finally, it was my turn to audition. I greeted director and the client. The callback was quick. I hope I’m what they are looking for.
When I was leaving I looked at the time and realized that I had been in the casting office for an hour. And I had only put in enough coins in the meter for 35 minutes. It hadn’t even crossed my mind that until that minute. I walked out of the casting office and spotted my car across the street. Sure enough, I saw the ticket on my windshield. When I got to my car I saw it had been issued about 1 minute after my meter was due to expire. Looks like they were waiting for it. And the ticket is for $55…ouch.
Ah, the life of an actress….
But what’s important is that I got the callback. Thanks to Shane Casting for both the audition and callback!
