Alright, so the auditions picked up last week, but the bookings haven't come through yet. That's alright - I'm keeping in mind that it's a marathon, and not a sprint. I'm just going to keep running my laps.
For the next three weeks I will be working on the BET Awards, which is not to say that my acting career comes to a screeching halt (at least not by my own hand), it just means that I get to work two jobs: the production gig, and the work it takes to get acting work. I'm usually worn out by the end from working 15-24 hour days (yes, I've worked overnight and into the next day on a few shows), but I'm hoping to just be super-efficient, very health-conscious (getting enough sleep, eating properly instead of grazing at the kraft services table...), and come through this healthy, happy, and more financially solvent. Here we go.
Tomorrow is the deadline for SAG to receive ballots for the proposed tv/ film contract. I'm anxious to see how this is going to play out. The national board has run a huge "Vote YES" campaign, and many celebs (who by and large won't even be affected) have endorsed the contract as well. The Hollywood board voted "NO", as did I, and most of the actors I know. It remains to be seen how membership as a whole voted.
Not much to say, just wanted to keep you updated.
