Castings , auditions, fittings, meetings, you know the drill. Driving in LA - gas prices way over $4.00 a gallon. I get it! It it what it is , and we are trying to get the castings closer together in any given day to help out with the driving.
Next week we even have some models carpooling to direct meetings for out of state bookings.
Yesterday two models that happen to be best friends went to meet a direct client and both booked it - so on that note they both work and only had to drive one car- saving a lot of gas!

What I do not get is why when we are doing what we can to get castings for our people that we get complaints via email if the models were not booked or not the perfect size?
Does anyone out there actually think for a minute that we are sitting here plotting against your gas tank and sending you to a casting you cannot book?

Let me ask you another question? Would you go back to a client or casting director and send them a nasty gram because they did not book you? No, if you ever wanted to have a chance to get booked, you would thank them for the opportunity and move on. The same goes here - when we get calls complaining about the drive or gas prices, these are things that are out of our control.

I really think that there is something in the water these days - so let's just all remember that we are trying to do the best we can to get you booked. Clients have a limited number of people they will book - so if you are not right for one job, keep your head up and go to the next casting.

Maybe it is a Friday afternoon thing - but whatever it is, I know that if you were not right today for something that you will be right for something else -
And for the people that were booked today for the catalogs, show, and sales events- Congratulations!
