Today I was lucky enough to be invited to cast for a TV commercial for a well known online fashion retailer. I was super chuffed as this is rather exciting for quite a newbie model.
It was also great timing as over the weekend I went to London to attend a casting workshop with two of the capital’s top casting directors, Tree Petts and Lou Clouter. The workshop was brilliant, reassuring and informative. I received some great feedback so I was eager to try out my skills asap!
So I drove for nearly two hours,
found studio √
arrived early √
had hair band on wrist √
natural make-up √
dressed as per the brief √
held a power pose for two minutes à la Amy Cuddy – no! (couldn’t find anywhere private to look silly – haha!)
and went in!
I was in the casting for approximately 7 minutes and then I drove the nearly two hours home. Thinking most of the time about what I shoulda, coulda done! How I would ‘do better next time,’ ‘think of it as a learning experience’ and the loudest voice of all ‘what an idiot! You can do so much better than that.’ 😦
We’ve all been there. Any fun tips to stop beating myself up greatly appreciated.
I resorted to Snapchat and gave myself some extra starry sparkle and some alien eyes!!
So here’s to the next casting!!
Love, Katie xx
