The Slow Jams Continue

It has me thinking… Should this be a whole quiet storm project? I didn’t think that I would fall in love with these downtempo grooves. Management has definitely won the bet. He played the “Slaughter” track and I wanted it badly!

That audition was traumatizing!

I’m getting back in the game. This happened so quickly. Last weekend I received a call about an audition. That same day I was informed about another project. That was going into production the next day. I’m working on this project. We’ve shot a few exterior scenes. It was a blast! I’ve worked with them before. On a few other projects. I will admit that hearing the words… “Action!, Cut! Quiet on set!” Sounds harmonious to the ears….

The audition to me was brutal! I literally wanted to scream and cry. This was the first time this has ever happened. This was the second audition. All the faces that were at the first audition returned. Which I thought was great! I was able to exchange info with ones that I weren’t able to last time. I can’t talk about it due to signing an agreement. However, I do like the concept. I just don’t think that this is for me. Do I think that I did great? Did I totally bomb this audition? According, to my reaction at the end. I’ve totally bombed! I remember when they said, “Okay, We’ll be in touch.” I totally sucked my teeth and bolted out of there. I did run into the executive producer by the elevator. She was very nice and we chatted. Or, maybe she was doing all the chatting. I do remember the hug exchange. When I felt better about it.

Was those the best five hours of my life? Maybe! Each experience is always a great one. No matter the outcome. It definitely wasn’t the worst. Imagine sitting behind a desk being under appreciated and looked over. While being their saving grace at times. The audition sounds much better. I’m just in my feelings about it. I don’t know how much longer I’m going to be bothered by this. This was the first audition I’ve been to in two years. I shouldn’t be discouraged but I am. However, this is what I chose. So, I gotta man up and get it together! I don’t expect a call back at all. Which is fine… I’ve met some cool and interesting individuals. However, I don’t think that they were expecting Porky Pig! Was I channeling him in my audition? You’ve definitely would’ve thought!!! Ugh!!!!

The Slow Jam….. “We did it!!”

It was around 6:45am. We’re having our morning coffee. Ever since I’ve requested help with everything that I’m doing lately. It’s a “We” thing now. It was pretty easy to get use to. Also, I don’t mind having someone that I trust. That’s keeping me focused on the daily. I’ll get lost in the sauce, super quickly.

Patience Is Tough!

It was the eighth hour of swearing at myself and the computer. There are two apps that have given me headaches. Of course, it’s totally worth it.

Learning how to use Final Cut Pro has been interesting. It’s definitely not iMovie or something else. The credit templates are great! I’ve been playing with the different styles. Which led to me creating a few trailers and slideshows.

None of them are post worthy. I’ll probably end up deleting them. It did feel good to get somewhere. I’ve gone back and started watching the tutorials on YouTube. Some are really helpful, some are just a waste of time and energy.

The other app is TikTok. What on earth is this? I’m regretting that I’ve just hopped on the bandwagon. I can’t do one to save my life. I’ve been just creating a photo compilation with effects. I’m going to keep practicing. One thing at a time, I guess. The music producing started off rough. Now I’m creating everyday. Stay tuned!!!

Chatting with….. Charles, Charley or Chazz. “A Podcast”

This is how I’ve introduce myself, when I’m out and about. You never know which one that you’re going to receive. I’ll admit that none of them are bad. It’s just three different types. Also, when I introduce myself I’m usually ended up with a nickname. So I’ve decided to launch a podcast with the names. Continue reading “Chatting with….. Charles, Charley or Chazz. “A Podcast””

The Hamptons Trip

Leaving a getaway can be bittersweet. You’re extremely sad that it’s come to an end. At the same time, you can’t wait to get home. It was as soon as, we hopped on the LIRR. I was anxious and antsy about getting in my bed. I sat on the train and my body gave me the hint.
