Spam/Junk Folder - Check it Regularly!

Once in a while, something good, something real, accidentally finds its way into our junk email folders.  A great example of this happened to me just today.

A few months back, I did some telephone messages for a company in California.  I recorded, sent the files and was paid promptly.  Everybody was happy.

Today, I decided to scan my junk mail folder - and found the same production company had emailed me a month ago, asking me to do more!  I immediately replied to them, apologizing for not seeing their email sooner - and explained why (not that it helps their situation).

Only time will tell if I still have a crack at serving them.  I doubt it - a month is a long time to wait for a VO to respond.

So, although there may not be some magical happy-ending to this story (and if there is, I’ll pass it along when it happens), it certainly is a good reminder to us all (especially me), to check the spam/junk folder daily!

Waiting Works!

...Or, at least it did this time!

Almost a year and a half ago I auditioned for a small part in a movie - and today I got that part!  It's voice-only, which is fine.  That is what I auditioned for.  Actually, I auditioned for three different voice parts.  A radio announcer, captain of a plane and 'some guy'.  I thought that if I got anything, it would be the radio announcer.

Well, today I got the email saying the part of 'the guy' is mine!  Woo-HOO!  Happy?  Sure am!  This will be the first time my voice has been used for a movie - no matter how small the part.

I'm not able to say too much about the project just yet, but once I'm given the green light, I'll pass along more info...  Apparently, I'll get IMDB credit for it too...

Darnitt!  I just found ANOTHER green M&M in the bowl... Someone will pay for that! *grin*
