My First TV Commercial

A few months ago, the ad agency for Samsung contacted me and asked if I would be willing to try out one of their new TVs and shoot a commercial explaining how it worked and sharing what I liked about it.Β Coincidentally, the shoot was in Raleigh so I took a little trip east. They put me up in a nice hotel and gave me a bag of goodies to get me through the shoot. Snacks, lotion, mints, and most importantly, wrinkle release spray. I don’t know why but getting wrinkle release spray made me feel like a legit star. πŸ˜‰

I went to the set the next day, ate breakfast with the account team, re-read my script (a lot) and then got my hair and make-up done

I met the actor and actress I’d be shooting with and promptly got nervous. It took over 4 hours to shoot a 2 minute clip. This angle, that angle, repeat repeat repeat. Talk more slowly, look here, look there, smile more. It was fun but also so hard! It turned out better than I was expecting though. πŸ™‚

“You’re doing great! Beautiful! Perfect!” Lots of over-the-top ego boosting from the director and lots of laughing at myself and now, here we are with my first TV commercial. That is, a commercial about a TV. πŸ™‚ They’ll be using this video in their online advertising – not TV networks – so don’t look for me during during the Super Bowl. πŸ˜‰
