Why am I interested? It's how I'm wired. I believe it to be one of the most exciting industries one could be a part. My goals? I am retired. So my desire to get involved in the industry lends itself to a wide range of goals, from background work to speaking roles, possible SAG membership, and possible behind the camera work.
I would be entry level. Years ago I was a stand in in a movie called "The Toy" with Richard Pryor, Jackie Gleason, and Wilfred Hyde White. I also did background in the same film. Also, did background for a movie titled "Louisiana" starring Ian Charlson and Margot Kidder. I have approx. 20 years of community theater experience as well.
I reside in Baton Rouge but because my interest is so high, I am willing to attend meetings in any of the cities mentioned above.
As stated earlier I would be entry level in any discipline. I can act, did it for about 20 years on stage doing community theater in Baton Rouge, Baker, LA, Brookhaven, MS and in college.
Currently I am not a member of a union.
I am a retired 62 year old caucasian male. I have about 20 years stage experience and years ago did stand in and background for The Toy and for Louisiana. Job prevented me from getting too involved. Now I have a lot of time on my hands.
I am a first timer so what I gained from tonight's meeting was a little more confidence, an opportunity to meet new people and establish some great contacts and I learned more about the 48 hour project.
