I want to be famous. Ever since I was little I have wanted to be. I’ve had some bumps in the road to get where I am today, but the path to fame and fortune is never easy. Once you’re famous though, life is as easy as can be. As it stands, I’m not famous just quite yet, but I will be famous within the next six months. That’s what my parents are telling me.
Tomorrow I have a virtual audition for this international play. I’m auditioning for the lead role, and as one of the main audition requirements, I’m not allowed to read the script before I start the video. The second requirement is that the script has to be written by anyone other than myself, but it has to work within the themes of the play. I guess the rules are so stringent because of how big the play is overseas.
To submit my audition, I’ve hired a video production based in Melbourne to professionally record and edit my monologue. Seeing as I’ll be famous in six months once I have the part, I’m able to spend all this money and just make it back within the year. You’ve got to spend money to make money – that’s how I see it. I’m going to be making a lot of money, so I can afford to spend heaps on a professional video. The video will make me look like the absolute best in the business, which I am obviously, but I want to look like it too.
I wonder if the video production company can do some sort of special VFX to make me look the part even more. The theatre play is magical and I’d like to show that I fit into the magical world pretty easily. For the amount of money that I’m paying them, I expect that I’ll look like the absolute perfect person for the part.
I’m going to go practice some acting now. I obviously won’t open the script until tomorrow, though.
