Walker's Single Day ‘Internet Commercial SHOOT’
'THE CALL': Perhaps my streak is tech 'industrial videos'. Got this ‘call' (actually an email) within two (2) days of shooting the Intel Embrace 'industrial digital video', to 'shoot' as a featured extra in this 'project'. No audition required, they selected me from my very bad SF Casting photo. Or was it my recent adding of an industrial category on my electronic actor resume? Or have I been referred? We will see when I 'report to set' on tomorrow.
The answer is: They ‘shot’ the Amtrak 'spot' - work gets work!
SINGLE DAY 'SHOOTS': It is intriguing to witness the typical multi 'set up', single day 'shoots' often devoted to a 'commercial spot'. A basic creative, usually comic, angle is explored through multiple simple scenes. The McAfee concept of a cell phone speaker exposing embarrassing personal information in public places is perfect for this format. The 'end product' should do well in showing its audience the need for information security.
'WHAT'S MY MOTIVATION': 'Sound Mixer' PHIL PERKINS and 'Director' SEAN LEMAN were wise enough to 'rig audio playback' that allowed 'actors' to hear samples of the runaway speaker phone information breaches to which we were to react. This use of technology made our job very easy. I'm sure our comic reactions will prove to be much more believable than if sound motivation had been left to our imaginations. That is how most other 'production companies' would have 'shot' this 'piece'. Smart move Republic Content!
'CASTING AGREEMENT': Production assistants should be careful when quoting one rate to 'talent' ("It is likely to be a half day's worth of work.") then, upon signing, changing the written agreement to "10 hours". It's just unprofessional to do such switching.
