Dear Hubby sent out Connor's CNY shots to his pals and they all commented on how cute Connor looked. Since we'd gotten so many compliments, I took a chance and sent in the very same shots to a talent agency. To my surprise, we got a call the very next day asking us to come in for a casting shot.
So yesterday, I showered my little boy, dressed him in what I thought was his cutest everyday clothes and drove off to the studio for Our Very First Audition. This is the first time I've been on this side of the casting table. Normally I'm on the other side, watching talents walk in and deciding who would be the face of my brand.
How did we do?
FAIL!!! With a capital F. LOL That's what I feel. Hahaha!!!
They were looking for an active kid and my normally walkabout-touch a lot-crash everything son decided he would be Good-Good Boy at the casting. Sure he smiled and waved to everyone and was at his most charming self but they were really looking for a kid who would be all over the place. (I think laa...)
They all thought he was "....so cute!" but from my own experience, I know looks aren't everything when you're casting. I thought it would be a fun thing to do seeing as I'm not working and Connor isn't signed up for any classes so we have time for this ad thing. Connor enjoys the notion of going out anywhere and I'm enjoying having conversation with another adult for a change.
It was a good experience though and if we ever do get called back for another ad, I'll know what to do next time.
Hey. I bet even Laurence Olivier failed his first audition.
