Friday was the taping for my first paid acting gig, and my first film work. An organization affiliated with the university was taping mock interviews for a FEMA project. I had two weeks to memorize about a 4-page script, then do the taping. That was surprisingly quick - they only did 2 takes, so I was outta there in half an hour, including paperwork (signing a release, making sure my contact info was correct - that sorta thing). I wasn't happy with my memorization - that first off-book rehearsal is never perfect! - but they were pleased and impressed, so I guess that's what matters.
I asked for a copy of "my" interview for reference purposes. They have to add a disclaimer or something, since it isn't their project, but said I should get something from them in about 6 weeks, more or less.
Not sure I'm looking forward to watching myself talk into a camera for 10 mins., but it's one more bullet for my acting resume.
