It's a process.
After I met with the manager who said, "I don't know what to do with you yet," I zoomed over to Brentwood to meet the writer director of a webseries who liked me. It was a callback-of-sorts. I didn't have to redo my sides, he merely wanted to meet with me to get to know me as a person and explain the project and his plans for it. It's called "Hollywood & Highland," and I had auditioned for the role of Sydney:
Run of series / Lead / Female / All Ethnicities / 18 - 24 years. Description: Sydney dreams of being a professional stand-up comedienne, but is currently limited to occasional performances at random open mic nights. To make ends meet, she works for a nutty director as his personal assistant. Sydney is perky and fun, but carries a quick witted sarcastic streak. Some would call her a pessimist but she prefers realist.
Project Synopsis: Six friends chase their dreams while surviving in the bizarre and dysfunctional city known as Hollywood. An actor, model, comedian, filmmaker, musician and novelist work a random assortment of menial jobs, while clinging to their creative passions -- the before side of "Entourage." It is a web based comedy series in the tradition of "Swingers" meets 'The Guild'.
When he had called asking me to meet with him, he told me it was between me and one other girl. I remember reading Beth Shea's lament over this because she feels more pressure, which is funny, because I feel victorious when people tell me this. I gots me a 50/50 shot at this! And with my
"I had a clear cut picture of exactly what I wanted for this character and then you came in and blew us away." "Now I want to go back and change some things about the character to fit you better."
Whaaaa? I was SO awesome I changed the writer/directors idea of what he wanted for this role? The role he envisioned himself? And now he wants to REWRITE some of it to fit me better!? Rewrite a role!? FOR ME!?
And then the kicker.
"It's yours if you want it, and we'd be lucky to have you."
Whoa, whoa, whoa. What about the other girl?
"We know she could do it, but you are by far our top choice."
