Having Some Fun with the Texas Tech Public Art Collection:
This is a video I made about 5 years ago. The Travel Channel was looking for someone who could talk about art and (here’s the kicker) have a personality. Sadly, they could find no one, and they started combing the universities for possible matches. I got the email and I had to give it a shot.
It was a family effort. Mom, Mom-in-law, and Husband all played a part in it, and I am forever grateful. Noted video producer extraordinaire Scott Thurman did the editing for me, and we submitted this to Central Talent Booking in fricking BEVERLY HILLS! They loved it and sent it forward to the Travel Channel. I just knew I had it in the bag until I got the call that told me I didn’t have it in the bag. Crushed. BUT, the lovely person on the phone that delivered the partially fatal blow, did tell me that she was surprised that they didn’t take me, and that I should find an avenue to pursue my new career in film. When I told her that it was sweet of her to say, she told me that she wasn’t being sweet, but serious. Wow. Anyway – here it is in all of its glory.
Note: I did have to bend the truth a little about the casting process to fit my “demo reel” into the allotted time.
