Fast forward to Saturday. My plan was to act as DJ's assistant to help take away some of the stress of managing a product of this magnitude. However, fate had something else in store. As it turned out a couple of people had issues preventing them from making the taping so DJ asked me to fill in. While I was totally unprepared for that, I promised to ad lib as best as I could and that I would try not to look like a "doofus" in the process.
When I tell you the taping of this show was incredible and loads of fun, I kid you not. The cast and I had an absolutely wonderful time. I think the experience exceeded our expectations. So what's my point. The point is that I went into the weekend looking to give of myself freely and I ended up being blessed in the process. I got a chance to meet some great guys and I got a chance to get in front of the camera which has been one of my dreams. I've never dreamed of being a major actor, but I would like to cut my teeth in the industry if possible. Who knows maybe one of my future writing projects will get picked up and turned into a movie. You never know. But with everything I have going on in my life it's likely it would have been a long time before I could have put any energy into acting. Therefore, it's amazing how through my giving, it has been given to me. That is wonderful. As I heard growing up, "you can't beat God's giving." When you give for goodness sake, sooner or later you will find that you also get blessed in the process.
Let me FLIP the subject a bit. During my short stint as DJ's assistant, I took some footage of the cast and a couple of people on the set. I can't tell you much about the concept other than what will be obvious from the interviews. For now, the intimate details about the project are on the hush-hush. When I've been given the clearance, I'll promote the show to the fullest and provide you with more details. Until then, enjoy.
