Totally Unauthorized

A side of the film industry most people never see.

Whoops. My bad.

Since I don’t have an employment agency, I get most of my work from people who work with me and like me and, hopefully, hire me.

So personal relationships are very important and it’s critical not to piss off best boys – if you piss them off, the calls stop.

Earlier in the week, I’d sent out some work texts, gotten a ‘maybe Friday’ back and not heard anything, so I called the hall and got sent out on a job for Friday night.

Which is great, but then I got a text from the first best boy. Turns out, he’d sent me a text that I hadn’t gotten and the job was still on.

Oops.

So now he’s pissed off at me.

Hopefully this job tomorrow will go well and they’ll call me, but it’s a pilot so it’ll only shoot for about 10 days.

The guy I pissed off is on a show that will go for 7 months. I really hope he calms down and calls me again.

  1. I don’t see why this BB would be pissed at you. Shit happens, technology is imperfect, people make mistakes. It’s not personal, unless he thinks you did this on purpose — in which case he doesn’t know you very well, or else he’s a fucking idiot. Maybe he should have called you instead of relying on the oh so modern, easy — and apparently unreliable — digital pacifier of texting. When you didn’t reply to his text — the one that never went through — he should have called. And because he didn’t, the only person he has a reason to be pissed at is the one he sees in the bathroom mirror every morning…
