Well, that was fun! Just came back from the offices for The Onion. This was call backs for the moviegoer role that I blogged about a few entries ago. I also received a new pair of sides to work on. The new ones were particularly hilarious. The idea is that google, in a tremendous display of power has messed with gmail rendering is useless and toying with google calendar etc. Just the thought of google shutting down paralyzes me with fear. I am not joking. The role of office worker was a "man on the street" blurb. It was quite funny.
Sidenote: do you even know anyone who doesn't have a gmail account? The only person I know who still uses an AOL account is my Dad, but in his defense it's tied to a business and he has had it since 1997 or so. He also has the same username on gmail that he uses often so I suppose it doesn't really count.
Just last week, a real estate client of mine gave me her email account for getting in touch during the day. It was a hotmail account. Gross. Perhaps mindspring has some novelty to it....but hotmail? That just seems cheap to me.
The call back went very well, I did each line twice and they gave me adjustments between each take, and I feel as if I took them well and nailed the takes. You can never tell, of course...but they do seem to bring me back often. So it's just a question of me matching what they need in a performance.
