Happy Friday

Few things:
1) Haven't seen The Dark Knight yet, and won't until tomorrow afternoon. I trust many of you have, and while I'm trying to avoid spoilers, I keep hearing it is magnificent.
2) Audition - commercial for Oscar de la Hoya's show - maybe called "Oscar's Big Fight?" It was pretty funny because I get there and most of the dudes that were waiting were HUGE. Not tall, most maybe 5' 10'', but at least 210 lbs. and solid - street-fighter types. Needless to say, I haven't heard back and doubt that I will ;)
3) Got my first SAG work check that included mileage, and it was pretty funny. SAG calculates mileage from the production office of a movie to wherever the location shoot happens to be. This mileage is paid at a rate of -- drumroll please! -- a whopping thirty cents a mile. Yep, .30/mile, the same rate that was negotiated 30 years ago and, as I understand it, that the Studios refuse to renegotiate. In that time, gas has went up some 500%, not to mention increases in car upkeep costs. Geez, if they won't even discuss that, don't hold your breath for any other gains in the new labor contract...

  1. Jeff,

    I found your blog through facebook. I'm surprised at how many people I've connected with on facebook are fellow bloggers. I had no idea you'd ever pursue this path. I wish you the best of luck.
