My two glorious days and 24+ hours of wandering the New York streets of Paramount Studios to add a little Puerto Rican atmosphere to CSI: New York are done. They were a bit exhausting but as usual, a lot of fun.
This was originally a one-day shoot for most of us but a few, including myself, got a callback for today. I was used a lot on both days and, as the previous post clearly indicates, I was given some props to handle during most of my scenes.
Also as expected, I got to meet a ton of great people who are doing this in their free time. This is an amazing way to network.
And from what I hear, this episode will air on October 15th (date subject to change). Be sure to mark your calendars so you can see my mug all over the place. I will post an update should I hear anything different.
Tired, I am. But if you want work in this business you have to get it yourself, so now it’s time to make some calls and see what’s available for next week!
Addendum: I forgot to mention that although this is only my third day of doing this kind of work, it seems like I’ve been doing it for months. I find it hard to believe that I only started on Monday, but maybe it’s the long days coupled with being out of work for so long that have made this job feel like I’m already a veteran. Either way, it’s still the best minimum wage job I’ve ever had!
