I only rarely do pay-to-play meet & greets anymore. Mostly because I've met so many of the agents and casting people already. But this past week I decided to give another one a shot. She was a manager, and didn't seem to have anyone on her roster that looked like me, and she worked with her client to develop their own projects. So we met on monday night. Totally hit it off, she lurved me. I rocked the audition, she loved all the projects I'm working on, and she thought I was funny. So naturally, when she gave me her e-mail and told me to get in touch the next day, I assumed she'd have time to watch my reel by then. Silly me. I emailed her.
Got no response. So I e-mail her again Friday, essentially asking if she'd had a chance to watch my reel, and if she had any feedback. By this point I was sure that she'd watched it and wasn't interested anymore. Which worried me. Could I make that great an impression and then have my footage totally turn someone off? I hope not. So I just asked if that was the case- and if that was, how could I improve my reel.
Of course she replied that she'd been super busy all week, and hadn't looked at it. Ho-Hum. The waiting game continues.
