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. The script describes my character as “elderly man.” Niiiice. It pays, though, and I’m taking the day off from work. I have a lot of PTO and I’ll use that and reschedule my work for other days. So, it’s a bit of double-dipping along with the pay from the shoot. I sent the director of the play an email tonight saying I won’t be there that day, even though we should be shooting by the time the rehearsal is schedule. It’s not clear from the rehearsal schedule that I’m needed, anyway.
The pretty girl I posted yesterday wants to do another shoot, this time in a wooded area next to my home. It’s an outdoor lingerie shoot. I’ve never done lingerie outdoors, so that should be interesting. It’s secluded enough that it shouldn’t be a problem. I’ve got another shoot scheduled Sunday, but I don’t have high hopes that it will actually happen. This girl is heavily tattooed. Another would-be model is going through a divorce and has offered me her backdrops and lights. Evidently, she was in photography, too, at some point. Again, I’m not holding my breath on receiving them or getting a session with her, but who knows?
It’s nice being busy. My wife is unhappy because she’s stuck here without a car and I don’t blame her. We must get another car running. There are a lot of adjustments we need to make to turn around this depression she’s in. I feel a bit helpless.
