Auditioning, Crew Work, and Employment Drama

On Tuesday, I auditioned for Wendy Williams' film. I believe that the film will be shot in New York, but they are auditioning people in various cities. I felt good about the audition. Unfortunately, I did not have the $20 fee on me. The $20 would have taken care of my travel arrangements should I make the finals. If I am selected for the finals now, it will be on me to get to New York. I will find a way. Shout out to Ashley Haralson and Mina Knox, two actresses that I have worked with before that were auditioning.

On Wednesday, I was a grip on the movie Tricks. DeAara Lewis is the writer, star, and director. The homeboy Rod Pitts ( is Director of Photography, and the rest of the crew was Deneka Lewis, Raven Lewis, Czarchus on sound, LaDonna, and our set designer, Nia. We filmed at Java, Juice, and Jazz on Elvis Presley. It was hot, because, as always, A/C would distort our sound. We also had people trying to come in. There were sirens blazing, and very loud and rowdy conversations. We made it through.

Thursday, an employee at my job was escorted out by security. Also, somebody snitched to my boss that I was late the last two days and she sent me an email about "it has come to my attention"....Well, it has come to my attention that she can go to hell with gasoline undergarments on!!!!! Man, this acting stuff needs to work!!! Corporate servitude is wearing thin.

Tomorrow, I should be working on two films: A Cop, a Snitch, and a Stripper Named Shane, and Curbside Confessions. Just what I need, some play-acting to take my mind off the bullcrap that has invaded my reality. Be easy, readers.
