15 minutes

My brief attempt at the spotlight, as an extra in a movie called Kerosine Cowboys shooting this weekend in Reno, in an e-mail (some names and numbers x'd or omitted for privacy):

Thursday afternoon

Tammy:
Hi, I saw on your web site that you're looking for extras for Saturday in Reno. I'm interested if you still need people. I live in Reno and am available all day Saturday (although I'm unavailable Friday and Sunday). I'm not sure what you're looking for, but I've attached a couple pictures - if you need a different kind let me know. What additional information do you need? Thank you, Tammy Gabel (xxx) xxx-xxxx.

Casting lady:
Which studio are you registered with? If you are not registered with (one of our studios), go to (our web site) and click register on line.

Casting lady again:

Tammy:
No, I have to work tomorrow (unless it was something quick like paperwork). Should I still go ahead and register?

Casting lady:

Dre - I wasn't able to do Kerosene Cowboys this weekend. I have no idea when the other one is shooting and whether I'll be able to do it. The whole thing was very confusing.
