Yesterday I went to an audition for a movie by an Academy Award-nominated director, John Hancock! I remember watching Prancer on repeat growing up, so even being an extra in his newest work "Girls Of Summer" would be amazing! The writer Tori Titmas is a student at Second City, and she seemed very receptive and nice. It's strange that although these individuals were going to be judging me, I was relaxed. I went in, told them who I was, and said the lines. They asked me to do it again directly to the writer. Then they said "So you're going to do some comedic rapping for us?"
I wasn't planning to, but what could it hurt? I did put it on the application, just in case. I rocked out the first two verses of 1Cheesecake with out background music. They giggled a little, and seemed to enjoy the moment. It's possible they may not choose me for a part in the movie, and maybe my music won't be what they're looking for, but I'm proud of myself for breaking out of my comfort zone and going. Then finding out, it wasn't that uncomfortable at all, (except on your butt from sitting in the lobby) but that was cool too because I met some other awesome local artists!
More and more I'm realizing the dream. I would love to write fun, unique songs for movies and commercials. I think I should start researching this. It would be an awesome outlet for myself, and I don't think it would even feel like work. It would be fun!
Have a great day rock stars!
