Poly Com Audition

Today was my audition for a Poly Com industrial which was secured for me by Ramona's Model and Talent. My audition was scheduled for 5:15, but I got an email around 3pm asking if I could move it up to 4:30 because the CD's wanted to wrap up by 5. I was running a ton of errands (dropping off new headshots/comp cards to my agencies) but I wanted to be done sooner as well, so I changed my plans around to go audition sooner.

The audition was at Beth Melsky casting and as soon as I walked in, I remembered having auditioned there before. They have an electronic casting system that's requires you to create a username and password after giving them all of your information, including your address. When you go in to audition, you have to sign in to a computer and the line is always very long because no ever has or remembers their username. Luckily, because I'm already in the system, I spoke to a gentleman at the front desk and he signed me in with no issue. I only waited about 10 minutes before I went in to read and it was pretty easy.

There was a giant board with copy written on it and while I'm still not entirely sure what the product/service is, it's basically about creating a site that gives a business the opportunity to connect with people all over the world, almost like Skype. I slated and read the copy in a very light, conversational style and the CD told me that I was great. Then he asked me to explain in my own words what I thought the product was all about. He told me it was great and that was it. I feel good about the audition, but we all know that doesn't mean shit in this business. It shoots on Wednesday and Thursday of next week so if I don't hear anything by Monday, I'll assume I didn't get it.

Tomorrow is my audition for the lead in the feature film "Seraphim". I'm pumped about that and will let you all know how it goes!
