The Commercial

August 23, 2019
The commercial is in the can. It was not a long shoot. There was a bit more to it than I was previously told, though nothing big. First, I had a "b-roll" scene with another actor. This was "the friend" referred to in the script. Turns out the actor was someone I knew. We had…

    Work today and then a long rehearsal for the play. I received an email from the film company that I got the part for the commercial. We will be shooting next week at two locations. I have to memorize a spiel about how this retirement plan company helped me to retire and helped my employees.…

    August 14, 2019
    Yay! Alyssa didn't stand me up and we got some great photos. She came about an hour late, though. She did text me and offered to reschedule after being delayed behind a five-car accident on I-20, but I wasn't having that; I told her to get here when she could. It wasn't too much after…

    Rehearsals are underway for A Gentlemen's Guide to Love and Murder and I have survived the first choreography session.  I had been dreading it, but they seem to have taken my warning of my dancing abilities to heart. Had the rehearsal gone badly, I would have bowed out. Plays are supposed to be f...

    In the previous life of Open Diary, I used it as a forum to express my thoughts about politics, religion, and other social matters. Facebook and Twitter are more suited for that -- Facebook being the dominant medium. If you want to see my take on these issues, search for John Greene. There are ot...

    I'm with John Schneider who was Bo Duke in the Dukes of Hazard TV show. He's playing a featured role in a schlock movie, Tulsa, that wraps shooting in Augusta this weekend. I did background, which means that you might be able to see me walking down a hallway while the action is going on in front ...

    Well, trying to. I  worked some calls today, even though it's usually a day off. I have special project calls this week, one of which starts at 5 am, so I wanted to get a set of regular calls out of the way. It's always good for me to go to work. Too much free…

    I knew I shouldn't have written that I had a shoot planned. She canceled on me at the last minute. Teenagers! I have been contacting some models I've approached in the past and two of the three have responded. Dare I say it, I have a shoot scheduled with a new girl on the 18th.…

    I'm going to stop relying so much on post-production of my photos and try and get the results I desire during the actual shoot. I spend too many hours trying to achieve an effect that I probably could have done with a backdrop. The downside is that it will take longer to set up for…
