It was GREAT to FINALLY land a "principal" role in a NATIONAL commercial- wich (hopefully) means great RESIDUAL$ !!
It was a fun shoot... My role was as "Conference Executive" and the storyline was "Hero Girl", played by Chantal Cousineau, is interrupted in our meeting by a cell phone call- presumably from the IT network people at her office- and she has to suddenly leave the boring Friday afternoon meeting to fix it. She then gets into her boyfriend's convertable waiting outside and reveals a bathing suit under her business suit. Apparrently that is the 3rd Friday in a row that "her network has been down"- and the point is to show that IBM's Linux network will never give any employees that excuse- as their system NEVER fails...
They gave me a page of "voiceover" dialogue to memorize when I arrived- but after 8 hours of filming everything else they decided they didn't need the extra dialogue after all (after memorizing it, of course) so I never even got to READ it for the camera- but hey I get paid the same regardless!!
Look for it on T.V. nation-wide - hopefully very soon!!
