After a year I was finally called in to register with Background, Inc. For those who aren’t aware, they are one of the premiere background casting houses in New York specializing in commercials. Commercials are great work when you get it and commercial background is great for a couple of reasons. 1) The day rate is higher. 2) You can work on several “spots” in one day and get paid for each spot. 3) The possibility of “upgrades” is higher than on a TV show or feature film.
I’m very excited about this! I honestly didn’t want to have to go back to waiting tables.
I took Dov Simens crash course in filmmaking. I highly recommend it. But I even more highly recommend the extras on The IT Crowd dvds. The commentary by the writer/director of that show is the most informative how to guide to writing a screenplay that you will ever find from a person who is actively writing a very popular show.
