I'm feeling a bit chuffed with myself. :-)
I applied for another short film to be an extra. This was last week, and I received an email saying yes, "it would be great to have you as an extra..." It was a nightclub scene though and when I asked about the hours, saying I wouldn't be available any later than 4pm, I thought they'd probably count me out.
So imagine my surprise when, today, I get a text message from the producer saying "just wondering when ur available on friday to audition for triple back flip".
"Hang on," I thought, "I can't do a triple back flip!"
And then quickly realised that "Triple Back Flip" must be the name of the film. So I messaged back, and found out that they want me to audition for a supporting role. Yay! I was rather thrilled to be honest but, as I was at the playground trying to keep an eye on my girls with stacks of other kids and mums around, I couldn't get too excited just then.
So, Mum's all set for babysitting and I've just been looking up the bus route numbers to get to Paddington for the audition. Thankfully it's at 10.30am on a weekday; not nearly as traumatic as getting to Double Bay late on a Saturday afternoon.
That little text message came just at the right time, too, because the last few days I've been going through a disillusioned, "I'm-crap-at-everything" phase. Another little step forward is just what I need.
