GKN Weekly Update 4/13/09

Happy Passover AND Happy Easter!

Man, I love this time of year. It's awesome to eat TWO big honkin' holiday meals in one week.

April seems to have slowed down just a tiny bit but there's still plenty to talk about!

Last week I had an on-camera audition for a casino courtesy of IFM. The cool part is that it shoots in Chile! Since it's been more than 48 hours I assume I'm not getting the callback but it sure was fun thinking about flying down to Chile. The only bad part is that I had to renew my passport and expedite it for $175!!! I'm considering the fee my Lazy Tax and writing it off as a business expense. A word to the wise, folks: renew your passport nice & early so you don't get hosed with the expediting fee.

Later that day I was in an on-camera commercial for Hillside Toyota. Believe it or not, I was cast for the Spanish version! I had to say "Nobody, now way, no how." in Spanish. Stay tuned to Telemundo! BTW they will post it on You Tube so I'll send you the link. A special thanks to Ingrid French Management for sending me to the audition and to Sid Paterson Advertising for casting me.

The other good news is that I got word that I was cast for an online VO spot for Amex. Actually it's for an airline frequent flier program that partnered up with Amex for the promotion. I'll let you know how it goes!

I got clips of my VO work for that Swiss Air radio spot I did a few months ago as well as the scene I did for "The Tin Woodsman of Oz". Go to the Samples Page of my website to check them out.

TIP OF THE WEEK: I found two sites you may want to check out: Talent Rover and Talent Hub. Both are entertainment industry networking sites where you build a profile and poke around for networking opportunities & jobs. I just joined them last week and they seem okay. I'll let you know if I get any good leads...

QUOTE OF THE WEEK: It has been my experience that folks who have no vices have very few virtues. Abraham Lincoln

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Have you found any new or interesting websites lately? They can be industry-related or just fun. Please share!
