DAY 65: Research and make contact with four new potential markets for your work.
1. Neal Brennan - Stand-Up Comedian/Writer/Director - The very same guy I saw on Friday perform stand-up is a new contact for me. Still feeling like an idiot for getting called out (read yesterday’s post for the story), I decided to post on Neal’s Facebook wall. I said “I was the guy who got carried away last night and was ‘too enthusiastic’ been a fan for years love Totally Awesome. Good show prick”. He wrote back in a message “I appreciate you coming out. Sorry if I was a little short with you. A few of my jokes got fucked up by people yelling out. Makes it harder to focus. Again, sorry. And I really appreciate your support. I’m really not a prick.” Needless to say, I took the opportunity to send him 2 short Archdale perfume and cologne commercials, so hopefully it will garner something…anything.
2. Randy - He is friends with Sandra Bullock. I met this dude during a commercial shoot this past week, drank some beers with him, and came to find out he went to college with “Sandy” and not only that, they were very good friends. We’ll see where this goes, but I am not going to get excited. Never can in this business.
3. Local Filmmaker - Been engaged in conversation with a local filmmaker whom is interested in putting my Dale Archdale character into his web-series.
4. Acting Coach - Met with an acting coach this week who is interested in implementing our Wilmington Improvisation course into her school. I would continue to teach our current classes on top of this new night. We locked it up this past week and it’s official. New client is always nice.
I decided to post another old prank phone call video. It is an actual recording that a job candidate left for a recruiter friend of mine.
