I had an audition for a Wal-Mart print job last week. The photographer's studio was nice and close -- about 10 minutes away. There was no wait and I was in and out in 5 minutes. The good news: my agent called the next day and put me on Avail which means that I'm something of a 'finalist' and that they wanted to check to make sure I was indeed available for the shoot date. Great! The bad news: the shoot date was today, and I didn't hear back since last week which means I didn't get the job. So close. And yet so far.
(Or maybe, just maybe, they changed the shoot date and I'm still in the running? That would be nice.)
