As of right now this is how my week is looking:
Sunday I may go to an open call not really sure I want to go through that experience again…I much rather you just choose the people you want to audition and have us come in….if you leave it open for us to just show up…half of NY will be there! That’s what happened at the last one!
But I may go and just make sure I get there early this time! I’ll let you know what I decide!
Monday I shoot in White Plains the interactive video for Columbia University. I have to catch a 5:30am train that means I have to be up at 3:30am to make sure I don’t miss the train. That’s the last train to catch to be there on time! Lord Help Me! ha!
Wednesday I am going to a free seminar at Actor’s Connection at 12pm. Details from the website:

Wednesday night I’m taking a Film Intensive with Eve Battaglia from Eve Battaglia Casting at 7p. Basically it’s a workshop to learn to audition for feature films on-camera. You get to perform sides for her on-camera after a Q&A and get feedback. I decided to do this because I am planning to meet 3 Indie Film Casting Directors through The Network on the 28th and this intensive could help me prepare for that!
Thursday there is another free seminar that I plan to go to starting at 7p through The Network. Details from the site:
