More Progress

So, this past week has been nothing short of eventful. First off, I was released from the hand sanitizer commercial the day before filming. I was so upset! That's the third commercial in less than a month that I've been placed on hold for, and then released from. Throw me a TV commercial bone please!!


In other (better) news, I have booked a role in a short film that I'm scheduled to begin shooting on the 22nd. I'm supposed to be shooting for two days. I originally auditioned for the lead, but was given a smaller supporting role instead. My ego wanted to be offended but life's too short for that crap, I'm still doing the film and I'm still happy. Besides, the character that they gave me is a nutcase and I think I'll have a lot of fun playing her.

I shot for Health Magazine yesterday. My photo stories will be running in the December issue. I had been sent to Health Magazine twice before and did not book it, but this time it stuck. It was slightly stressful because I was sent to the casting was placed on hold before I even went in. The day before the shoot, I got a call telling me that the hold for the shoot was being moved to Thursday (today) and that was fine. Then, 15 minutes later, I got a call letting me know I was being released. I almost had a nervous breakdown. Well, to be honest, I cried. I was so frustrated that I was getting released from so many projects and it was bringing me down. My fiance was there to comfort me and he reminded me that I was doing a great job and accomplishing so much. Then about 10 minutes later, I got a call letting me know that there was a mistake and that I was booked for the shoot that I did yesterday. Win!

While I was at the Health shoot, I found out that I had booked an on-line commercial for Nintendo that I'd auditioned for on Monday. I shoot that on Friday (tomorrow) and I'm super excited.

On Saturday, I have my first table read for a film that I'm set to shoot in November. It's untitled right now but I'll keep everyone posted.

So, all in all, it's been a great week! I hope next week is even better.

P.S. I have not heard anything on the Disney Princess casting yet. Trying not to think about it.
