This is just a really short tidbit of thought but has anyone else in South Florida realized how the Film Miami sites and Film Florida sites rarely update what actually is being shot in Florida??Â Is there some site that I don’t know about that has all this updated info?Â How do I even find this info so I can put it up myself??
If anyone knows of any site like this please let me know!
So my casting booker called me today because she needed help with calling our prospective douchebags.Â At first I thought this would be fairly easy… boy was I completely wrong.
I got the list in my email around 2:30pm.Â This is where all the drama began.Â Apparently microsoft office now has a new version of their program.Â Me being not the most computer savvy person did not know about this.Â I see that it is an excel document but there instead of the normal .xls on the end of the titleÂ it isÂ now some new .xlsxÂ Now you would think that magically excel would be able to recognize that it is a new form of the program and just allow you to choose to open it in the older version…but no.. microsoft has to be difficult and make it so you buy the new version of the program to see the damn document.
I do a quick google search and find that there is some converter thing that you can download that will help with the problem.Â I search for a good two hours to find this so called converter only to find that they do not make one for macs. Â Â I finally give up and head over to a fedex kinkos and open the document there and send it back to myself saved in the old format.Â Finally when I get home it is 4:00 pm and I have yet to call a single douchebag.
I start going down the list and begin to call people.Â Little did I know that this would just cause even more drama.Â The first 10 people on the list don’t pick up so I leave a message .Â The next 10 have no idea what I am talking about, and are extremely confused why I am calling them.Â As I try to explain the show to them, they get all pissed that I am calling them a douchebag and some of them hang up on me. Â The last few people I call answer the phone and say they were really drunk when they met the casting associate and don’t really want to do the show.
Honestly people, I know you are drunk when you go out..but if you don’t really want to be on a reality show then why do you give your number to someone who is telling you that they want to put you on a reality show?
It is now 6:00 pm and I still don’t have a single person scheduled for a interview with my casting director tomorrow…crap!
Thankfully I did get some calls back and booked a couple, but I have to say I have a new found respect for my casting booker and the drama she puts up with.
