That was a fun audition.
I just finished an audition for a Sam's Club SAG national commercial
(cha-ching), a la Action Figure, and it was a lot of fun.
I like improv auditions. I don't like having to mime/mock actions with
pre-scripted dialog, but that's what is audition was. That said, it was
fun. I was miming throwing stuff into the back of an imaginary car for an
imaginary camping trip; adjusting the rearview mirror as I yelled jovially
at my nonexistent kids; throwing the car into reverse and backing over a
curb; trying to get my wife (a la actress and audition partner Elise
Ballard as excited about my insanity as I was).; etc.
We got a good several takes, which always makes me happy.
I think the director was Matt Hovis, but I'm embarrassed to say I'm not
Y'know, This whole week has been really good on the acting front. Having
three auditions in the space of 4 days has really loosened my up on the
audition front. The timing couldn't be suckier (in the middle of the house
move), but it's not like I'm going to turn down opportunities to audition
for Jeffrey Travis, Beth Sepko, or Action Figure.
On the move activities ...
