Hey, I started (FINALLY) editing the scene with you and Kaycey that we shot in the woods. Dude, the camera LOVES you guys. Seriously. It's going to be hysterical. (Yes, it's been over a year. Long saga, 'nother time. Suffice to say editing is back on track.)

Ooh! Neat! I can't wait to see it!
You should tell all these casting directors I visit that the camera loves me :)
I would be more than happy to tell anyone that, so just send 'em my way. :) Also, once I have the episode edited, you can use it for your reel and SHOW them how much the camera loves you.
