Here we go again. Hollywood needs us! Below is a request for a someone looking for a unicyclist. Only requirements seem to be someone with personality and skill.
I contacted her about the date. She is looking into it and will get back to me. Contact info is at the bottom of the email.
I am looking for a unicyclist to appear on Godfrey Live in Los Angeles. Do you know of anyone? Are you a unicyclist? We’re looking for someone with personality and skill. THere is pay.
Please let me know either way.”
Good point! I told the lady (who called me last night) that the money is no big deal or an issue for me (it’s not) and that I would do it simply for the fun of it, and hopefully it would also be great publicity for out sport!
Please try not to do that next time. If they know there are unicyclists with “skill and personality” out there who will work for free, it kind of ruins the market (okay, potential for a market) for unicyclists who can’t afford to give up a day for free. The level of publicity for the sport is the same either way.
That said, if you’re the one they hire good luck, and have a great time with it!
If I lived in the LA area I’d like to hope I could do some of those gigs. Not much call for it up here…
Turns out that she is simply a “representative” who makes the intial contacts. I only mentioned the pay thing in passing. She replied that the pay is set and that my not caring about the compensation amount would have no impact on the producer’s decision. The Lady I spoke with is not in a position to make any hiring decisions.
