HOW DID I GET THAT BOOKING?
(See Video Below)
Over the years I have had people ask me about the process from the time I was submitted for a role to having the fortune of actually booking the role. I decided to answer that question by describing my experience in two roles for television.
I was submitted for both roles by my talent agents...in this case, one in Florida and another in Hawaii. Both required that I submit a self-tape audition. I received a portion of the script, known as "sides" and studied the lines. In both of these, I used my wife, Jennie, as the reader for the other lines.
I submitted both to the respective Casting Directors. On the Hallmark film, "True Love Blooms", I had a second audition, known as a "callback" and booked the role.
For the TV series, "Doogie Kamealoha, M.D.", I booked the role based on my self-tape audition.
Below are the videos showing the audition and how the scene appeared on TV.
