I won't mention the projects yet, but the role where the casting director loved my bold choices was one of the ones I booked this week!! It was a part I really loved and rally wanted to bring to life and I was able to convey all of that desire and confidence into my audition. I sat in the waiting room slowly burning with anticipation, thinking of "what I would do when I met the character who had tormented me so, how wonderful my vengeance would be, how strong and powerful I had become, how he had no idea what was about to hit him." I let it marinate. I already knew the lines so I seethed, I burned, and when I performed I was all of those things. When he still overpowered me I was crushed, physically and emotionally. "How could he overpower me still when I have dedicated my life to being able to win?" I did the scene twice because the first time I had amped myself up too much, and then had a nice dialogue with the actor who was already cast and the casting directors. When I got the part I was ecstatic but not too surprised be issue their interest in my training and availability seemed to indicate they were interested, but I didn't want to get my expectations up because then I would be disappointed. Instead I focused on how I had prepared and the result I got and let myself be happy with that. So when I got it then I rejoiced.
I also booked a student film role as a reported from a self tape audition! That was exciting as well! It's only the second time I have booked from a self tape, I think I am starting to improve on how I go about self taping.
I am thankful for the opportunities to work on projects and to meet new people in the industry making their own visions come true on film.
Have a wonderful weekend
