It’s 9:32PM and I’m sitting down at my desk free to “do me” for the first time all day. My energy level is about a 2/10. Alas, here I am giving this Google Doc my last bit of effort.
I sat in on part of an audition for a new project I’m going to be working on that I can’t talk about yet. I’ve never been a part of an audition like this before. It felt like sitting in on a job interview but the interviewee had to perform.
If it was me editing video instead of them acting then I imagine someone would give me a project with a handful of shots in it and say, “Edit this short video. We want fun, but authoritative.” And that’s it. Go.
I wouldn’t enjoy that. I wouldn’t know what they want and I want to create their vision for them. Good thing I’m not an actor and have to do that for literally every job interview.
That’s all I have left in. Calling it a night. I’ll try to do better tomorrow.
