Walker's One Day ‘Industrial Video SHOOT’
'AUDITION': What a unique 'audition' we experienced with this 'project'. As the 'director' stated his interest in obtaining 'honest', 'real' performances, the 'audition' was held without a 'camera rolling'. This meant that the 'director' had to remember what each of 'auditioner' presented. Further, on this rainy day (finally!) the 'audition' was held at Portal A's San Francisco store front offices. Thereby allowing 'talent' to see that this 'production company' does not waste money on impressing people with their facility.
RESEARCH: After being casted, my research began. Not the best order of preparation but everything happened so fast that the day before the 'shoot' was my first chance to see what I had gotten myself into.
I was so impressed with Go Game's approach to leading team building activities that I submitted to become one of their facilitating 'actors'.
COLLOGUE ADVISE: One must be careful taking advise on a 'set' as there are so many unfounded opinions being presented as fact. That being said, a well represented actress informed me that the San Francisco Bay Area market's average rate paid to 'actors' working through 'agents' is meaningfully higher than that paid to unrepresented 'talent'. I suspected this to be true, but she is the first 'artist' in the know to actually state this fact to me.
Note to self: time to get an agent!
NO 'SOUND' ON 'SET': Man is it easier to 'shoot' without 'sound'! All of the talent and crew are so much more relaxed in this circumstance since the chances of disrupting a 'take' are greatly minimized when 'sound' is not being recorded as part of the 'shoot'. As a seasoned veteran, I have learned to keeping as quite on the 'set' as possible - at all times. Why wait for the 'AD' to yell 'quite on the set'? Alex Boyd (who played the Engineer in this video) had to point out to me how relaxed he was because we were shooting without 'sound'. So all this interest among 'talent' in 'having lines' has its downfall...while sitting around all day long one has to be quite. This seems to often be a challenge for many novice 'performers'.

'REVIEW': Nice 'narration' and good use of 'talent' to help tell the 'story'. Should do well in attracting more customers on the 'clients' web site. If so, then we actually were a team of 'actors', doing our job.
