And the wonderful audition nightmares continue.
An actress emailed me about six times during the day Friday begging for a chance to audition for a role we had open this week.
An actor screwed us by bailing out of his role 24 hours before the shoot, so we made it clear anyone submitting, they would have until that evening to submit an audition video.
No excuses, no second chances.
So, after finally emailing her the dialog on Friday afternoon, she was reminded I needed a demo within a few hours.
At midnight I get an email from her stating she had fallen asleep, and “did not get around to it”.
She then complained that the notice was “Way late”, in other words, I did NOT give her a fair shot to audition for the role.
It was, for all intents, my fault she fell asleep before doing her damn job.
Wow. Really? IS it my fault you don’t have what it takes?
Honey, many of the folks now working for me could do an audition within an hour.
This past week, a young lady snuck into the boardroom of her day job to do an audition, and she got the role.
Do not ask for opportunities then make excuses for why you did not take advantage of those opportunities.
