With my blathering on about acting, etc., a friend told me if I was serious about trying to become an extra I would have to get a headshot (read: a photo where they erase all the bad and enhance any good. They’ll be doing a lot more erasing than enhancing).
When she first suggested it, I checked out some local photogs and their prices. Ain’t no way I’m dropping that kind of money for a photoshopped pic of myself that no one will look at anyway…
Groupon, on the other hand, may have saved the day. When I saw a coupon for a headshot for $25, how could I not buy it? So, ok…I’m thinking that means I only have 1/4 of my flaws erased and maybe nothing enhanced, but for purposes of being picked for an extra that’s probably good enough, right?
It’s definitely a “first” to purchase a Groupon for a headshot. Now let’s hope the actual picture, once taken, is enough to allow me to, say, become a zombie that in less than a second gets killed by and falls on Mr. Dixon or even Rick. I’d be ok with that.
Each day of 2014, I’m
forcing encouraging myself to have at least one new experience (and chronicling it to keep it real). If you’re interested in why–though I can’t for the life of me imagine anyone would be that bored–check out the “about” page.
