Well things are chugging along at RINGER$ headquarters. The past four days have brought a lot of development.
Friday afternoon, I had a meeting with our PR consultant and discussed some ideas regarding the social media aspect of production. Social media is definitely a more powerful tool than I realized.
Friday night we launched our Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign. Over the last few months, there have been several highlights to this project. Receiving our copyright approval WGA registration was one. This was another. Nothing is more real than sharing something and giving people the chance to have a stake in it's success. In our first two days, we were already a third of our way to our goal! Nothing is more motivating than knowing there are people out there on your side who have taken action towards your pursuit becoming a reality.
Tomorrow will mark another pinnacle moment for this new executive producer. We finalized our casting notice and it will go live on actorsaccess.com tomorrow. Now these characters who have lived on a page will start to come alive as we see the possibilities come flowing in!
As an actor, I've had a love/hate relationship with auditioning. You have to find the love in it, because it's how you get work. I also hate it because even if you have been sent the entire script and you have read the sides front and back, you still don't know what the folks "behind the table" want. I have directed and choreographed a few shows over the years, so I've experienced the other side of the game. Releasing this casting notice and the upcoming auditions in two weeks are especially exciting for me. This will be the first time I get to hear people read and embrace my words and bring them to life. This show is mostly actors in their 40s and up, so I'm also excited to see what they bring to it. Comedy over 60?....yes please!
