High School Musical, Here I Come

Posted: Thursday, April 8, 2010 by Greg in

First off, my apologies for the wicked long delay for a new post. I got all pumped on posting every day, then work hit me like a Tyson punch and made a week pass like it was nothing.

I don't talk about my work often, because I don't think many people would give a damn about the job itself, but I work in production here in Los Angeles. The niche I would love to fall into permanently is music videos and commercials. I have worked on some cool ones before, and ultimately I would love to direct. But, thats far down the road. Right now, I'm just glad to get on assisting where I can.

For whatever reason, "where I can" right now is the least likely place I would have imagined. For every one day I work production, I work at least 5 as a direct assistant to two Hollywood wardrobe stylists. Two legit-as-hell, name a celebrity and they have dressed them, people know who they are type stylists. Let me make this clear right now: I have NO IDEA how this happened. I have ZERO fashion training. I basically only know how to throw something together at H&M/Express for a weekend night out, but it ends there. They say this city is right place right time, and I guess thats me. Go figure.

Anywho, because of this I find myself on various sets around HollyHood. A majority of them seem to include high-school age actors. It's no secret that young-adults have the most money to blow, so it makes sense. So, at almost every shoot, we're making a couple of 17-year olds look ballin' as hell.

I am 22 years old. I graduated college. If I walk onto one more set and get asked by the coordinator which TEEN ACTOR I am, I am going to die my hair gray just on principle. I mean go ahead, click the little profile thing on here. If that picture makes me look 17, tell me now. Because if thats the case, I will essentially just give up on both women and production for a while and try to land a spot on Glee. I mean I might as well.

Commence the Gary Coleman jokes.


  1. wow...Hollywood...I wouldn't care looking 17...don't complain! Soon enough (8 years will fly) you'll want people to think you're still in your 20s
