Final Thoughts

I thought I would be doing something special by bringing my photography equipment with me to this audition. By the time I got home I realized I blew this given opportunity. I had the look. The casting director even complimented me for coming in full in character but I blew this one. Next time I'll leave the props at home. It was my job to invoke imagination and I screwed it up. During the last take, my camera flash went off and more than likely make the casting director feel uncomfortable by doing that. I really displayed myself as an amateur at this audition. Oh well... We'll keep it moving and rock the next one.

My agent called really excited about this audition on Tuesday and a couple hours after this audition called me about an even bigger opportunity for the next day.
