New Headshots!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I had new headshots taken by the incredibly talented, Melissa Blue.  Melissa has a great way of capturing the essence of your personality with her shots. She also is great at lighting, which really makes all the difference.  I couldn’t be more happy with the different looks she captured.  I posted a few of my favs, but what do you think?  Which one is your favorite?

To check out Melissa’s work or to schedule a session with her, visit: http://melissabluephoto.com/

I also want to thank Lilia Ultreras for the flawless make up.  The right make up in a headshot changes everything. Trust me, I’ve had my share of shots over the years. Lilia has an incredible eye and she is simply a pleasure to be around.

I’m so grateful to have worked with both of these ladies!

Hello!

jenniebabysmall

I welcomed my 2nd daughter in June of 2014.  Being a mother to my two little girls has been by far my favorite role. I have loved deeply, laughed more, and slept less, but have been more fulfilled and happier since these little girls have entered my life. I’ve posted less, but I’ll be back posting about some of the projects. Thanks for following my journey.

Screening of “Alison’s Choice”

Cast and crew of the faith based film, “Alison’s Choice”

A Screening of “Alison’s Choice” was held on November 15, 2015 at Oneonta Congregational Church.  My husband, Lincoln, and I hosted the screening.  I contacted the local paper to get the word out and took to social media to promote the film and actors daily.  Director, Bruce Marchiano, and his social media team also worked to promote the screening. I wasn’t sure how many people would attend, and frankly I was a little nervous.  I had never hosted a film screening before. But the night of the screening the fellowship hall at the church quickly filled up.  People drove from as far as Riverside to see the film and meet Bruce. It was also great to see so many cast and crew members in attendance.  I hadn’t seen them since we filmed last January and it was great to catch up.

Our friend, Dave Schwend, popped popcorn and we offered light refreshments for all who attended.  Following the screening there was a Q&A with Bruce Marchiano and cast members Chanel Marriott, Britt Prentice, Amy Lyndon, Liz Randall and myself.  Bruce brought glossy 11×14 sized film posters and the cast and I autographed posters for all who attended. Overall the screening was a complete success and I walked away feeling exhilarated!   Thank you to all who attended!

“Alison’s Choice” Independent Feature Film Shoot: Day 1

IMG_6386

Behind the scenes photo of actresses Jennifer Keller and Chanel Marriott with writer/director Bruce Marchiano.

January 12th was a beautiful day.  It was the first day of filming for a faith-based independent feature film called “Alison’s Choice”.  My teeth were chattering as I arrived at 6:30am on set in Arcadia, CA. I was greeted by the second AD, Frederick Gourgue, who introduced to the make up artist, Kristen Castellano.  I enjoyed chatting over hot tea with our film’s star, Chanel Marriott.

I play Rita, a upscale mother of two, whose chance encounter with Alison influences her journey in the film.

“Alison’s Choice” writer/director, Bruce Marchiano, greeted everyone with a kind welcome and we jumped right into rehearsal and filming.  For me acting is always a mix of joy and fear.  I love my craft, but there is an element of vulnerability every time I step in front of the camera.  There is that little voice in the back of my head that says, “don’t blow it”.  And as I sat outside on that park bench with Chanel, my teeth chattering, I just had to tell that little voice to quiet down, to trust in the work I put into the character of Rita (as my favorite coach, Christinna Chancey, would remind me). One of the great things about working with Bruce on set is that he has a gift for encouragement. He has a kind word for everyone.  And surprisingly, most actors will agree that is a rare on sets. And so I breathed life into the character of Rita that day and trusted in Bruce’s direction.

It was a pleasure to work with both Bruce and Chanel on this scene.  I’ll be on pins and needles until I see the final product.

Filming: Day 2

Day Two of filming was at beautiful El Matador State Beach in Malibu, CA. Let me tell you more about El Matador Beach. A steep dirt pathway leads down stairs and finally to one of the most gorgeous beaches I have ever seen.  It is a small beach with large, ragged rock formations and smooth white sand. It was actually cool and overcast the day of filming, but the water was still beautiful.

When I arrived the band was filming their scenes. My sweet husband and daughter joined me for the shoot. My two-year-old ran around In the surf while we waited and we snapped some family pictures against the gorgeous backdrop. 

Soon I was up. Mara, the stylist, dressed me in white and we moved up the stairs to a nice spot overlooking the ocean.  The sun came out and the shot was perfect. The best part of it all was that my daughter joined me for the scene. It was very sweet.

Afterwards I snapped photos with the director and my friend, Christinna Chauncey, and DP Anthony Johnson. This was a great experience and I am grateful for the opportunity. Thanks to Christinna and producer, Suthurn Hicks.

Filming: Day 1

IMG_5868

Jennifer on the set of a music video for the band, “Seven Years”.

On Saturday I had the opportunity to work on a new music video for the band,  “Seven Years” .  The song is from their debut album, “Time To Change”.

My long time friend and  acting coach, Christinna Chauncey, cast me in her directorial debut. I have so much respect for Christinna and it was an honor to work with her outside of a class setting.  She has coached me both in class and for various film roles and we have a great rapport.

On the first day of filming we shot at Village Church in Burbank, CA.  When I arrived on location I met with the producer and songwriter, Suthurn Hicks, and wardrobe stylist, Mara Mara.  Everyone was so friendly and I felt so welcome on set. I knew it was going to be a great day.  Mara dressed me in an awesome tan coat and chunky scarf.  You would never know that it was actually sunny and warm in LA (luckily it wasn’t too warm). Once dressed, we started filming around the church campus.  The campus had so much to offer.  The final product is going to look really great and you’ll never believe we are actually at a church.

In between takes I chatted it up with lead singer, Cole Williams.  Cole is also a mom of a two-year-old. Her sweet little one was even on set.  We really hit it off and set up a play date for our kiddos.  What an unexpected little surprise that was.

IMG_5871

A quick photo in between takes.

Our second location was at a condo in North Hollywood.  This mood of this scene was somber.  Christinna gave me great notes and I felt like we were able to achieve her vision for the scene.  We shot in a really artistically decorated bathroom, I just had to get a photo of it before we finished for the day.

Day One of filming went really well! One more day to go!

New Headshots

Jennifer Keller 2013I recently had new headshots taken by Michael D’Ambrosia.  This is my second time shooting with Michael. I first shot with him when I was was a fresh-faced new actor in  LA. He was recommended by my agents at CU. Since they had asked for the new shots, I decided to shoot with him again.

With this session I was striving for 4 very specific looks: an approachable commercial look, a sweet Midwest mom, the icy upscale woman and the detective.  I spoke at length about these looks with Alma, the Make-up Artist, and brought a number of clothing choices for each.  Michael and Alma were really helpful.  For instance Michael strongly suggested I wear the peach cardigan, which I originally brought as a back up.  It turned out to be a great choice.

In fact, I’m thrilled with all my shots! Michael shoots outdoors in natural light, which I really liked.

Here are a couple of my favorite shots. These are unedited shots. To view more of my new headshots, click on the “Headshots” Link at the top of the page.

Which one is your favorite?

Commercial Callback Workshop – Week 1

Howdy all!   My awesome agents at Commercials Unlimited have sent me out on some really great commercial auditions in the past few months.  I get a call backed for maybe 4 out of 5 auditions I go out on….but I haven’t booked anything lately

So frustrating.

I was scrolling down posts on twitter the other day (find me at https://twitter.com/JenniferKeller1) and I spotted this tweet:

30% of the Feb Wed. Callback Class has ALREADY BOOKED AND WEEK 4 WAS JUST LAST NIGHT!!!!!!!!! OMG CONGRATS CONGRATS CONGRATS!!!!!!

And I knew it was time. Time to take the commercial callback class I have been mulling over for over 6 months.  I immediately called to inquire about the next available class.  Originally I was told it was full, but to call back after the weekend. And you know what?  A spot opened up in the class.

It was a sign.

Let me tell you more about the class.  The commercial callback class is a  4 week, on camera workshop that recreates the different aspects of the callback.  The last week of this class doubles as an actual performance in front of a professional casting director.

I arrived for my first class and I was nervous!  I’ve been acting and auditioning for commercials for years, so I couldn’t believe how jittery I felt.  We started off class as we would with in a commercial callback.  There was a sign in sheet, storyboard of the commercial and sides when I arrived. There were about 15 students in the workshop. We were brought in the audition room in groups of three and then we watched ourselves after everyone had “auditioned”.  Afterwards we officially met Killian. He talked to us about his experiences working at Alyson Horn Casting and gave us some interesting and helpful nuggets about the commercial casting and auditioning process. Now I’m not going to talk about all the ins and outs of this class, you’re going to have to sign up yourself for that, but I will say that it was eye-opening.  And watching myself in an audition setting was oddly calming.  Every actor deals with a little insecurity from time to time, and I think my lack of bookings shook my confidence slightly.  Seeing what I brought to the table in the audition and a couple very fixable mistakes (such as not cheating out to the camera) made me feel empowered.

I can’t wait until the next class.  I can’t wait for my next audition!

For more information about taking this class, visit http://www.killiansworkshop.com/classes.html

Two Auditions on Wednesday

I had two auditions on Wednesday!  This is the life of a working actress in LA.  Not the one I expected when I was a bright-eyed, recent college graduate, but a more realistic version.

I received notification from my agents at CU that I would have a late afternoon commercial audition the night before.  But around noon, I received a call about a co-star audition from my agents at Clear Talent Group. Nice! I downloaded the sides as my toddler climbed on my back and tried to strike all the keys on my computer.  It was a nice scene on a confidential CW show and I started working on it as soon as I got my toddler down for her nap.

I love nap time, when it happens.  I showered, dressed and ran lines before braving late afternoon traffic on my way to Studio City.

My first stop was Beth Holmes Casting.  This was my first time auditioning for Beth Holmes, which was very exciting.  I walked into the casting facility at Loudmouth Studios fifteen minutes early to look over the sides.  There was a sea of blondes in the room when I arrived.  A casting associate in the lobby paired me with another actor and we rehearsed the lines until it was our turn.

The audition was on tape for casting.  The casting associate already knew the actor I was paired with and they started chit-chatting about people they knew.  On a side note, sometimes this happens. Some actors are really “buddy buddy” with the casting directors.  For my readers, especially fellow actors, don’t let that throw you.  You’re there to do a job, and it is okay if you do not have a prior relationship with casting.  If you’re right for the role, you’re right for the role.   So, back to the audition. After their brief chit-chat, we ran through the scene twice.   I felt happy with the audition. I felt that my fellow actor and I had a nice “banter” in the audition.  I’m really hoping for a call back.

Next, I was off to Hollywood.

I had some time to kill and was starving, so I hit up my favorite fast food restaurant: Chick-Fil-A. I got a chicken sandwich and a carrot & raisin salad.  Yum.  Generally I’m not big fan of fast foot, but I think the food quality is a lot better than most places.  I also practiced my lines over, and over, again in the parking lot.  To the other patrons I probably looked a little funny “talking to myself” in the car, but oh well!

Afterwards I drove over to Sunset/Gower Studios for my co-star audition.  Gower Street is a scary place at night.  I had to park on the street, and the only spot I could find was several blocks away from the entrance to the studio.  The neighborhood isn’t that great and I briskly walked by a number of homeless men who were bundled up for the night.  I walked close to the street and held my keys tightly just in case someone tried to grab my bag.  Luckily I didn’t have any trouble.

I made it safely to the studio, checked in, and bee-lined straight to the bathroom to change into my new outfit. Once I was “prepped”, I signed in for the audition. There were a number of ladies in the small waiting room, all with different looks (a contrast to my earlier audition).   When it was my turn, I greeted the casting associate. I’ve been called into audition for this CW show 4 times now and it is always nice to see her.

I felt really confident walking into this audition.  But as soon as we started, I faltered on the lines even though I had my script in my hands. In spite of my prep work it just didn’t go as smoothly as I had rehearsed.  Why?  I don’t know.   Sadly, that’s just how it goes sometimes.   And unfortunately, co-star auditions are just one take.

So, now what?  I’m going to let it go and look forward to the next audition.  If there’s one thing I’ve learned in this Industry, it’s that you have let auditions “roll like water off a duck’s back”.  You must think of every audition as a job: you go it, do the work, and go home. If you dwell on what you said or how you said it, you’ll just drive yourself crazy.  You have to focus on the “win”, which is that you had the audition in the first place.

You may be wondering why I’m fessing up to my not so stellar audition.  Well, because that’s life. If things went perfectly every time, I wouldn’t grow as an actor or as a person.   And who knows what role is waiting for me around the corner?  You may have heard the old phrase “When God closes a door, He opens a window”. Well, I’m just looking for my next window.

Co-Star Audition

On Friday, I had an audition for a co-star role in a show on the CW.  This is my third co-star audition since signing with Clear Talent Group (thanks to Brianna and Nelson!).  On a side note, curious about what it means to audition for a co-star?  Read this post: https://jenniferkeller.wordpress.com/2012/09/07/co-star-audition/.

I’m going to keep the name of this show confidential so I can talk  in detail about the audition and my preparation for it.  Releasing information about a TV show, film or commercial that you, the actor, auditions for is a BIG “no, no”.   The Entertainment Industry prides itself in the element of surprise.

I checked my e-mail and read through the sides. The role was a “Pageant Mom” of a 7-year-old girl.  So how did I prepare for that?  I watched TLC’s “Toddlers and Tiaras” online.  Seriously.  I’m not familiar with the world of kids pageants, and this might sound cliché,  but it gave me some new ideas for my character.

Afterwards I chose my outfit to get “in character” and practiced my lines. A lot of work for a couple of lines, but totally worth it!!  The whole process is very exciting for me.

The next day I arrived at the studio and checked in with security. Surprisingly, there were not any other actresses in the waiting room.  I actually like to see who else is auditioning for the role.  It gives me an idea of what the Casting Director might be looking for.

The Casting Associate  walked in and called my name. I was brought into a small audition room with a blue wall and a small camcorder.  Generally speaking, co-star roles are taped for the producers to watch. The role is then cast off the tape.  The Casting Associate asked me to give three different interpretations of the scene without stopping the camera in between takes.  That’s where your training comes in–I didn’t have time to stop and think about my delivery, I had to trust my instincts.

Overall, I felt like I gave three distinct interpretations for this character.  That’s all I can ask for.  Now, if I fit what casting is looking for, then I’ll get the role. But I know I left the studio feeling like I did my job well.

“Short Term” Webisode Shoot

A friend of mine is an actor and producer of a webisode called “Short Term”.  “Short Term” is a web series that takes a comedic look at the day to day life at a Temp Agency.  On Thursday, my friend asked if I would be interested in shooting a co-star role for the series finale. The scene called for a family, so she also asked if my husband and toddler daughter would be interested in filming .  My husband is not pursuing a career in the business, but he is a real natural and was up for it.

The Saturday morning shoot went great.  The scene was very sweet, I am grateful to have been a part of it.  Though I have to say, I think my toddler stole the show.  She was so sweet.  She had a line, but in true toddler form, she added her own lines.  Everyone on set was smiling.  She did a great job.  And, for the record, so did my husband.

We’ll be very excited to see the finale.

If you haven’t watched “Short Term” yet, check it out at http://www.shortterm.tv/

“Wedding Day” Film Premiere

The “Wedding Day” Film Premiere and Red Carpet Event was Monday night!  It was such an exciting night.  “Wedding Day” is an Independent Feature Film that I worked on in 2010 and 2011. I have worked on a number of short films in the past few years, but this is my first leading role in a full length feature film.  This was a big night for me.

I bought a new dress from White House/Black Market for the event.  I spend an hour getting ready, making sure my hair and make up looked just right. And finally, I was ready to drive into Hollywood for the Premiere.

When I arrived I was escorted to the red carpet and was photographed by about 10 different photographers.  Next I was interviewed about the film.  Afterwards I was able to catch up with the cast  and directors of “Wedding Day” in the lobby, many of which I haven’t seen since we first started filming in 2010.  To learn more about the cast, visit http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1562918/.

After all the actors walked the red carpet and were interviewed, we were escorted into the screening room to watch the film  It looked great!  There will be a limited theatrical release soon. Keep checking back for details.

Check out a few  personal photos from the event:

Audition for a Short Film

On Friday I auditioned for a short film at CAZT, which is a casting facility located on N Formosa Ave in West Hollywood.

I auditioned for the role of Judy in a film called “Lifers”.  The film was described as a dark comedy.

Soon after signing in, I was welcomed into the audition room by the director, Mike Fitzgerald and the producer, Christian Parent.  I asked a quick question about the sides and then we jumped right into the audition.  The audition was a single take, on tape.

Thanks to Christian and Mike for the opportunity!

Commercial Audition and a Funny Story

Today, I had a commercial audition at Ross Lacy Casting!  I haven’t been called in by Ross Lacy since before my pregnancy, so it was really awesome to get the opportunity.

I had a 2:45 PM audition scheduled and I arrived 15 minutes early.  My friend, Jen, met me there so she could watch the baby.   I’m lucky to have such a good friend.

I arrived in my best commercial “mom” attire: cardigan sweater and jeans (watch any commercial featuring a mom and you’ll see).  I knew my friend had an audition this afternoon as well so, counting the names of actresses who signed in before me,  I found myself with a common dilemma:

Do I sign in now, which reserves my spot, and hope that I finish primping before the four actresses ahead of me are done? Or do I primp in the ladies room first and risk the chance that several more actresses will arrive within that time and sign in, increasing my potential wait time?

Now, I realize this could sound like a silly dilemma to my readers, but I work in an industry of first impressions.

**Disclaimer: Yes, I take time to choose my outfit and fix my hair BEFORE I leave the house. But being a mom is a game changer! A lot can happen by the time I pack up the baby, change her diaper, debate on how many baby food squeeze packets/changes of outfits to bring, run back into the house for Cheerios (which my little sweet pea is asking for as I lock up the door… and since she only has a handful of words, this is a big deal), lumber down the steps to the parking garage with baby/purse/diaper bag/headshots/another bright-colored cardigan (in case the role is more comedic) in tow, pack everyone/thing into the car and drive 20 minutes to the audition site.**

So, back to my dilemma, I decided to take a gamble and sign in FIRST.  As I turned to Jen to say “I’m going to run to the ladies room”,  my name was called for the audition. Awesome.  So I had to forgo the lip gloss, yank out my ponytail and shove my sunglasses into my pocket as I walked into the audition room.

To top it off, I was chewing gum, which is a big “NO, NO!”  I looked frantically for a garbage can. Two wire metal trash cans were within range, but neither had a bag in them so I improvised and pressed the gum to the roof of my mouth.  Ha! I haven’t done that since 8th grade history class in an effort to avoid getting written up by Mrs. Denges (and if you’re reading this, Mrs. Denges, it was only once).  This was not an ideal situation, but sometimes you gotta make it work.

The audition went smooth and I was in and out (and, in case you were wondering, at no time did I choke on the gum).

This just goes to show that even a seasoned commercial actress needs a little reminder now and then of proper audition protocol: PRIMP BEFORE YOU SIGN IN.

Did this crazy situation mess up my “game face” or ruin my chances at receiving a call back? I would say no.  It’s like planning a wedding–no matter how much you anticipate, something will always go wrong and usually the only one to notice it is you.  So, if I’m right for the part it won’t matter that every hair was not in place.

I had one last surprise as Jen and I were saying our goodbyes. My sweet little teething girl, let out a big scream in the middle of the crowded, 6 room casting facility.  *Sigh*  And with that, it was time to go.  Never a dull moment!

Overall, it was so nice to read for Ross Lacy Casting again. As always, I am grateful for the opportunity and for my wonderful agents at Commercials Unlimited, who consistently submit me for great projects!

Commercial CALLBACK!

Today I had a commercial callback for Sabyn Mayfield Casting.  The callback was at 2701 Oceanpark Casting Facility,  a different location than the original audition.

When I arrived, the casting associate from the other day, Ian, walked out of the audition room.  I smiled at him as I waited my turn to audition.  We were told that the audition would be the same as the other day and I was paired with another actor.

I greeted the clients and the director as I walked in. They were really friendly. Often the clients do not talk to the actors during the audition. Ian checked us in and called action.  And it a blink of an eye, the callback was over.  There was a real ease to the it, and so I left happy.

Thanks to my agents at Commercials Unlimited for submitting me and to everyone at Sabyn Mayfield Casting for the callback!

Filming!

On December 5th and 6th I worked on a “hush, hush” Independent Film.   It was great to work on such a professional project.  My scenes were rich with possibilities and gave me a lot to play with.  I worked with a wonderful director and my fellow cast members were top-notch actors. And I had my own star-wagon trailer, how can you go wrong with that?

It is a lucky day when I have the opportunity to act on-screen.  All the auditions, the driving all over LA, the ups and downs of the Industry are worth it when I’m actually on set….doing the work….doing what I love.

More information coming soon. Keep checking back.

Commercial Audition at Joe Blake Casting

Today my commercial agent, Richie, notified me of a same day commercial audition.  I was thrilled to received the call. It has been a quiet couple of months for me.

The audition was for Joe Blake Casting at Ocean Park Studios in Santa Monica. The product, Jimmy Dean.

It is a rare day when the 405 is clear, and today was that day.  I zipped down to Santa Monica in record time.  I arrived 20 minutes early and looked over the story boards and sides.  There were several women ahead of me, so I just signed in and waited for my chance.  Before I knew it, the casting associate, Nicholas, asked us into the audition room to explain the set up for the audition. Nicholas was very friendly and brought a great ease to the room.

I have to say, this is a cute spot.  I am so happy to have had the chance for this audition.  And I left the audition feeling confident.

Special thanks to Joe Blake for the audition!

Headshot Session with David Muller

A sneak peak of Jennifer Keller's headshot session

 

On Monday I had new headshots taken by photographer, David Muller.   In 2009, I shot with David and was really happy with my photos, so I scheduled with him again this time around.  I was specifically targeting several looks with this shoot: “Young Commercial Mom”, “Quirky Commercial Mom”, “Jeep Mom” (notice a theme?), a good dramatic look, a “Senator’s Wife” and a character from “MadMen”.  It’s amazing how you can change a look by adding glasses, jewelry and a change of background. I was able to achieve all these looks that way.

The shoot went really well. David is a gifted photographer.  I also scheduled with make-up artist, Kate, who not only did my make up in 2009, but also for the Tidy Cat Commercial I worked on in 2008.  She is one of the best around and I was thrilled with her work.

I will post photos online as soon as possible.

 

Jennifer Keller at the whole team: Photographer, David, Make-up Artist, Kate, and her sweet little one

Two Commercial Auditions on Thursday

Oh what a day!  I had two commercial auditions today.  The life of an actress at it’s best!

First stop was Broad-Cast at 9 AM. Getting out of the house in the morning is so tough now that I’m a mom.  I’m sure that once I am no longer nursing, it will be a lot easier.  Right now, baby girl calls the shots.  But thanks to my helpful hubby, I was able to hand her off to him and get ready for the audition.  Traffic was heavy on the 101, but I made it in the nick of time.

The audition was for Target.  It was a short, non dialogue spot.  I greeted casting associate, Hunter, who I often see at Broad-Cast and was in and out of the audition room.

Second stop was Julia Kim Casting at 4 PM.  This was my first time auditioning for Julia Kim, and I love auditioning for new casting directors. This audition was for Aquafresh Toothpaste.   There was a bit of a wait when I arrived.  I read over the audition info and signed in.  I noticed that waiting room was filled with actresses in the late 20’s – early 30’s range, as well as actresses in the 14 -16 year old range.  And between you and me, any passing thought that I might have had that I could play a high school student (Hello “Glee”) has officially been put to rest.   I am just too tall to start with, and standing next to one of those teens in the restroom, I really did look like a woman in my late 20’s – early 30’s. Though how old am I?  I will never tell.  I joke that I am 25 as long as I’m an actress.  Or at the least an age range, 25-30.

I was at the audition for almost an hour, and then if was my turn.  This spot was also non-dialogue and the audition was a quick one.

Overall I was very happy with both auditions.  Special thanks to Casting Directors Dan Cowan and Julia Kim for the opportunity to audition!

Commercial Audition at Davis Baddeley Casting

Today I had a commercial audition at Davis Baddeley Casting.  This is my second audition since returning from Maternity Leave and my first time auditioning for this office.

Today’s spot was for Procter and Gamble.   I arrived 10 minutes early for my morning audition at The Casting Underground in Hollywood.   As I waited, an actress I worked with on “The Cavemen Crib Party” webisode arrived to audition as well.  I was glad to see her.  She and I were pregnant at the same time, so we would bump into each other at maternity auditions last year.  Now we are both new moms, so it was great to talk about our experiences

Before I knew it, I was up.  Everyone was so nice in the room and this is a great commercial spot, so I’m grateful to Davis Baddeley Casting for calling me in to audition for the first time

Commercial Audition at Broadcast

Today I had a commercial audition at Broadcast.  This was my first commercial audition since returning from Maternity Leave and I have to admit, I was a little stressed.

First of all, I have to say I LOVE auditioning at Broadcast.  Everyone is so nice and they have been so sweet to me.  I booked Tidy Cat and American Express Commercials through Broadcast.  But I was stressing because getting out of the ouse on time with a newborn is tough.  I’ve quickly learned that the baby calls the shots!  And there are so many questions. Should I find a sitter for the baby?  Do I take her with me to the audition?  The good news, I already had plans with a girlfriend of mine, so I immediately called her, and she agreed to meet me at Broadcast and watch the baby while I auditioned.  I’m a lucky gal to have such a good friend

Today’s spot was for Natural Choice. This was a fun, non-dialogue spot

Special Thanks to Dan Cowan at Broadcast for the audition

Photos from the Barnes and Noble Commercial Shoot

On October 21, 2010 I filmed a Barnes and Noble National Commercial.  The product: the new Nookcolor E-reader. Since the commercial is now airing nationally, I wanted to post a couple of photos from set:

The "Waiting Room" actors

 

The commercial shot at an abandoned hospital in North Hollywood.  Apparently the hit TV show, Scrubs, once shot at this same location.

And here is a photo of me looking very much like a “Waiting Room Pregnant Lady”:

No, that is not a fake bump! Jennifer Keller is 7 1/2 months pregnant in this commercial

Commercial Callback at Shane Casting

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!

National Commercial Shoot

Today I shot a National Commercial.  What a neat experience!  It was a cold and rainy in Los Angeles, CA and lucky for me the shoot was in the Valley and I didn’t have a long drive.

I arrived early to fill out my paperwork, and had a little downtime before hair and make up.  So I was able to chat it up with the other 2 actors who had been cast in the commercial.

Then off to hair and make up.  I was given a really natural look with light make up.

Once on set, the fun began.

The commercial is due to air sometime in the next few weeks.  Once it does, I will post photos from the shoot.

Commercial CALLBACK at Broadcast

Today I had a commercial callback for Dan Cowan at Broad Cast.   The callback was for GMC.

My callback was originally schedule for 4 PM.  I had a busy day at work today and just happened to check my personal messages around 2:40 PM and found out my callback had been moved to 3:15 PM!   Luckily I had finished my appointments for the day and was able to leave work right away.  Ah, the life of an actress.

Traffic was light and I made it to the casting office on Beverly just in time!  What a relief.  There were a couple of ladies in the waiting room when I arrived, but I was the only pregnant woman in that time slot.

The callback was slightly different from the original audition.  I’ve got to say, I still love this commercial spot, so clever.  And I got a laugh from the client at the end, which is always nice.

Special thanks to Dan Cowan for the callback today!

Commercial CALLBACK at Cathi Carlton Casting

Today I had commercial callback at Cathi Carlton Casting  for a Chevrolet commercial!  I was so excited to get the call from my agent Richie.  I just felt “so/so” after my audition and this is a great commercial spot.  I felt much better about my performance in the callback than the original audition.  So now I’ll just keep my fingers crossed : )

Special Thanks to Cathi Carlton for the callback!

Commercial CALLBACK for Lisa Pantone Casting

Today I had a commercial callback for a pregnant woman at for Lisa Pantone Casting.  The callback was at a different location that the original audition.  The callback was at 525 Broadway Casting in Santa Monica.

Today was another misty and cool day in Los Angeles and traffic on the 101 and 405 freeways were horrible.  I’m so glad I gave myself an hour to get to Santa Monica.  I was actually a little nervous I might be late.  But it finally cleared up half way down the 405 and I made it to Santa Monica with 10 minutes to spare.  I was relieved to find a parking spot right in front of the casting facility.

Again there were many cute pregnant actresses in casting office.  I do not envy decision that casting has to make.   But I felt great about my audition.

Special thanks to Lisa Pantone for the callback!

Commercial Audition for Cathi Carlton Casting

Today my commercial agent, Richie, notified me of a same day commercial audition for Cathi Carlton Casting.  The audition was held at 2701 Ocean Park Casting Facility in Santa Monica.  Not only was it a same day audition, I needed to be in Santa Monica in an hour and a half and I was in Woodland Hills.  Luckily I had my hair and make up done from an audition earlier, but I didn’t have time to choose my wardrobe, I had to go with what I was wearing, which was jeans and a blue tank.  I was near a Kohls so I made a quick run to the store and picked up a dark gray cardigan for a more “mom” look.

The audition was for a young mom for a Chevrolet commercial.  There was a long wait in the casting office. I looked around the room and saw that I was the only pregnant actress auditioning.  That could be a good thing or a bad thing.

I auditioned with a shy 5-year-old for this commercial.  I had to crouch down to her level, which was tough with my big 7 1/2 month pregnant belly.  So I felt a little off on my lines.  But I’m still grateful for the opportunity.

Special Thanks to Cathi Carlton for the audition!

Commercial Audition at Lisa Pantone Casting

Today I had a commercial audition for Lisa Pantone at The Casting Lounge on South LaBrea.  The audition was for a pregnant woman in a commercial spot.

There are just so many cute pregnant actresses in LA right now.   I gabbed with two other girls about our pregnancies while we were waiting for our turn to audition.

I am always happy to audition for Lisa Pantone.  She is a lot of fun.  Lisa is right there in the room for the audition and gives direction on what the client is looking for.

Special thanks to Lisa Pantone for the audition!

Commercial Audition at Broadcast

Today I had a commercial audition for Dan Cowan at Broad Cast.  Dan is a great commercial casting director and  I am happy to get a call from his office any time.  The audition was for GMC and the attire was upscale casual.

I walked into the casting office and was greeted by Hunter, a casting associate that I have seen many times before at Broadcast. Now I haven’t seen Hunter since I started showing, and when I walked in he exclaimed “What happened to you?”  Pretty funny actually.

The audition was a non-dialogue spot and I auditioned with a guy who played my spouse.  I’ve got to say, I love this spot.  Very clever.

Special thanks to Dan Cowan for the audition today!

Commercial Audition for TLC/Booth

Today I had a commercial audition for Loree Booth Casting.  This is my first time auditioning for this office.  I am always excited to audition for a new casting director!

Today’s spot was for a Lenscrafters.   I arrived at the casting facility at 6521 Homewood Ave for my 1:20 PM audition about 10 minutes early.  I signed in and waited for my turn to audition.

The spot was calling for a blonde woman in nice attire, but not neccesarily a pregnant woman.  I met the casting director and the first thing he said was “wow, you are with child”.  Hopefully I will still be in the running for this spot.

The audition was quick.  A non dialogue spot.  But I felt good about it.

Special thanks to Loree Booth for calling me in to audition for the first time!

Callback at Sanford Casting

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!

Audition at Sanford Casting

Today my commercial agent, Richie, notified me of a same day commercial audition for Kay Jewelers.  Not only was it a same day audition, I needed to be in Hollywood in 45 minutes!  I was at work at  AIA Studios and I didn’t have time to change or style my hair, so I just jumped in my car.  I was wearing jeans and a gray cardigan.

The audition was for Michael Sanford Casting. I first met Michael about almost 3 years ago at a workshop and this is the second time he has invited me to audition!  Very cool. The audition was held at The Casting Underground in Hollywood.

I’ve always wanted to audition for Kay Jewelers.  I was paired with a guy who played my husband and I thought we had great chemistry together.

The only problem, the callback is on the 17th and I have 7am flight booked to Cleveland to visit family.  If they call me for a callback, I’ll have to try to change my flight.  I will be back in LA for the shoot.

Casting Workshop with Arlie Day

Tonight I attended a Casting Workshop with Casting Associate Arlie Day at AIA Actors Studio. Arlie works on “Brothers and Sisters” at Bacharach/O’Neil Casting.

Arlie passed out sides from “Brothers and Sisters” and she gave me a really great scene  for a reading exercise. I played a great guest star character who was just a little vindictive and definitely knew how to get her own way.  Lots of fun.

I had a good scene and I felt good about the workshop!  Thanks to Arlie Day for teaching.
