The thing about blogging is that one should be able to express oneself in whatever manner they choose, though to rant and rave about things particularly if you are your own boss is probably not deemed good PR. To be complaining about things makes you look a) hard done by b) bitter and c) unsuccessful but sometimes I really don't think this is the case!
I think I must be a little old fashioned but really I do believe that good manners cost nothing! On a day to day basis I really do not to expect to hear back from castings etc if I am not successful because that's just the way it goes and casting directors etc are far too busy.. that said I recently cast for a very well known casting director who actually did phone me up personally to thank me for attending and to inform me that I wasn't successful that time round but she would bear me in mind for other things. I was absolutely dumbfounded to receive her call but it kind of made me restore my faith in human nature a little bit. These days its all too easy to ignore emails and texts and with the 'acting/modelling industry' totally saturated with professionals and wannabees - I can see that it would take many hours of man power to reply to people personally with a yay or nay! Still there are a couple of projects recently that I have got beyond the initial casting stage and a polite yes or no or it's still currently in progess would have been nice. After all it has cost me money to get into town, it's cost me time away from other things I could have been doing, I've had childcare to juggle (yes that's my problem I know!) but I have put time and effort in trying to get a job - the same as any person might who is the job seeking market!
The same goes with people at the studio - everyone now and then we get one or two people who are guilty of the following - if you book an appointment it seems acceptable now to just not show up without even an apology or cancellation call. People really don't seem to care - it's not 'their problem'! And if it is easy to ignore texts and emails etc then surely with all this technology its just as flippin easy to send an email/text carrier pidgeon or something to communicate!
