I was honored to be invited to participate in the process of "The Tragedy at HOOD:14542" written by Deaon Griffin-Pressley. This is going to be a fantastic piece of art produced by Daryl Sledge and potentially directed by Doug E. Doug.
Stay tuned because when this drops, you're gonna wanna bear witness!!!
This was perhaps the BEST REJECTION from a production that I've ever received:
"So now, a week later, we have made final casting choices on Macbeth. It took Tom (Director) a while to sleep on decisions as everyone was awesome.
I (Producer) wanted you to know that you were seriously considered for Witch 1, but final casting went in a different direction beyond any acting choices you could have made--everything you did was great.
Please know that Antonio (Leading Man) and I adore your work. Tom was super impressed and we truly want to collaborate with you. I am sure we shall again soon!
Thank you for sharing your talent with us."
All this is to say, that a rejection is never quite that. It's important to go in the room and just be you. Do what you want to do and make an impression.
I was seen that day. I'll be remembered when the right role comes down the pipe for me and in the end, when all is said and done, that is what's important.
