Hi everyone! Remember my post about Raviv’s VTR and photoshoot at his agency? I mentioned there that I also had my moment, right? Well, let me explain. The first time Raviv had a VTR and photoshoot (before he turned one and before I blogged full blast), both Randy and I were also “discovered” by the agent/talent scout. After Raviv’s VTR and photoshoot, I was pleasantly surprised when the agent said,
“Mommy ikaw rin, then si Daddy.”
Well, nagpakipot ako ng konti. I asked why, that we were there for Raviv, and that I wasn’t very keen on being a “mow-del” myself. But the agent said it was worth a try, malay lang natin. They got even more eager when they learned I have a theater background, however meager it was. Randy urged me on, as he knew that deep inside gusto ko ng mga ganitong kaartehan. And so I did a VTR and a photoshoot. But since this was really unexpected, it was so awkward. After my VTR and photoshoot, Randy was asked to step up. Ayaw. Pinilit ko nang pinilit, ayaw talaga. Randy said that acting was not his cup of tea. The agent, probably seeing how nice Randy’s facial features were (round eyes and uber tangos nose), even said,
“Sige na Sir. Sige hindi ko na po kayo papaartehin. Pa-picture lang po, para sa print ads.”
Pero ayaw talaga. Alam n’yo naman si Randy, opposite ko sa pagiging famewhore. Hindi n’ya pakipot yun.
Truth be told, I was the main target of the agency to update my portfolio early this year. Probably because female adults have more projects than toddlers. But I swear, I wasn’t that interested. For one, auditions are almost always in Makati and they usually are done on Saturdays…eh you guys know I work mostly on weekends. And I also know I don’t register well on cam (so if you think I’m pretty in my photos, humanda kayo ‘pag nakita n’yo ako in person. Chos! Joke lang ha.) Actually, just a week after that VTR and photoshoot (years ago), the agency called me and asked me to go to an audition. Randy wanted me to go, but I didn’t. I had classes and I was pessimistic I was going to get a project. Sayang lang ang time, gas at toll. Kung si Raviv pa, go go go go na agad ako.
Anywho, this was I during the photoshoot/VTR:
