Although we've spoken elsewhere, I want to congratulate you here too.

Well done, Al! You got to prepare, to juggle and to deliver a spoken line. Impressive! (And I hope it bankrolled a few Christmas presents too.)

Way to go Al. Your clubs look well cared for too.

I had to play it again and pause because I thought I saw a casket. It was the make-up table. (New glasses will be ordered today.)

But I know I saw you give those 2 ladies a little squeeze when they bent over.

Congrats, Al! It was also a very cool premise for a commercial. I bet it was fun to do.

I redecorate my clubs every year, but I brought my new ones to the shoot, and I'm glad you noticed.
Everyone got dressed in the same dressing room. I saw a lot of skin that day.

The pay wasn't union scale, but it was enough to make my effort worth while.

I didn't like that the guy basically exposed the vent doll gimmick-back camera shot
I also didn't like that you didn't include your contact information.
I hope that they "Well Cared For" all of you, by having a caterer present.
I hope that you got the flapper's digits if not, you dropped the balll Mr Juggalo!

Great work my man...it looks like you all had loads of fun....Very professional work!

Nice job Al.
I bet you had a lot of fun making the commercial.

Really cool Al,well done!
It was kind of them to do the camera cut at the bow at the end,just to give you all
time to get back upright. ;)
"You were well cared for."

The shoot went from 9:00 am until 8:00 pm, and they gave us two meals

Thank you again everyone.

Brother Al,
Each of my line item comments were tongue in cheek,
except for the last one of course. You clean up pretty nicely mate! (grin)

Great job!

Al, was the craft service table out during the whole shoot?

No Breakfast was set up when I got there, and they changed it to a hot lunch at noon, but after that we had the biggest shot of the day to finish before we went home, so they broke down the dinner, and made everyone in the building that wasn't on stage (sponsor, caterer, wranglers, make up, wardrobe) sit in the audience, and applaud each performer. I live in Pennsylvania, and the shoot was at a church in Astoria New York (Queens), so I got up at 4:00 am, took my car, NJ transit train, NY subway, and elevated train to get there.

I can tell you I've gotten up many times at 4:00 am to travel to a location. Always hated it. To dam early, but part of the job sometimes.

There was a lot of talent, was it a union job?

I had no idea Al could smile. :lol:
Message: Posted by: Al Angello (Dec 12, 2011 09:53PM)
It was not a union job. I'm not sure what it would cost me to join but I don't think it would be worth my while to join for one job. The modeling agency thinks she will have more work for me in the Spring, but who knows. In order to get these TV commercial jobs you need to go to Manhattan several auditions for each job.

Thanks Tom, but I'm a kids magician laughing is part of my job.

Excellent, Al. Congrats and good luck in the future, looks like a new career looming. It own't be long before they send a limo for you.
