The only problem with "acting" as a hobby
October 18, 2017 9:40am CST
HBO is filming in Portland this week. I got a notice of it and sent a resume and photos. I asked for a little advance notice, since I am 100 miles away, did not hear anymore, so assumed I was not to be hired. Last night at 11, I got an email saying to be at a certain address at 10 AM today (later changed to 12:30). I had to respond and say "Well... am I hired? What should I wear?" By this morning, I got confirmation that I am hired, and wardrobe is, she told me, "Think 2005 Presbyterian." I guess that means jacket and tie, so I can do that. I may spend the night at my daughter's house and come home tomorrow. They might even want me for another day. It seems that this is always the way it happens, a few hours' notice at best. But it is always fun!

Ah, those were the days. I worked on many shows when I lived in Vancouver. It was fun, even when I had a night shoot. Most of the time I had to provide my own wardrobe, so I had all kinds of clothes and wigs, even different eyeglasses.

I have friends who are "extras" here and there . . . I've heard this is the way it goes in the industry - when it's on-call, they mean on-call! Well have fun with it . . . and I hope they feed you (some of my friends say the craft service is the best part!).
