Did a remote audition this week for a certain teen drama that my own teen watches constantly. It may be the one of under five shows in the world that she'd actually be impressed to see me in. That raised the stakes for me just a little. Imagine the points scored!
The appointment was a live Zoom audition, and it made me wonder why more casting directors aren't doing these all the time. So much more satisfying to work live, talk things over, throw out another take and feel like something actually happened than to watch your labored-over self-tape flushed down into the toilet bowl void of WeTransfer. It was actually fun.
