why is atlanta booming with film and commercial shoots?

oh. ah-oooo. that's because it isn't. there's been a definite lull in act-ivity around here this last month. the tax incentive passed by georgia has not attracted filmmakers. in fact, more films are shooting in louisiana (in post below, factory girl is shooting in shreveport). despite new orleans' recent demise, the money is still better there.
today i have an audition for tv's 'surface' again. it shoots and is set in wilmington, n.c. i have the script for episode 113. the word 'hell' appears four times, as in:
'what the hell'
'scary as hell'
'who the hell'
and 'what the hell'
it also appears in the word 'hello' twice, and in 'shell' as in:
and 'what the shell'
the word 'creature' occurs nine times. mostly in descriptions.
the word 'surface' appears five times in the script of the show by that name. all on title pages. no one actually says it, as in:
'check out that gay surface tension'
the big winner is 'critter' of which there are twenty-two instances in the script. the character i'm auditioning for actually holds an egg containing a critter. i would eat a critter omelet. this is how i propose they solve the problem. place the eggs in foam containers. label them with the words 'cage-free' and 'vegetarian' and 'slurp'. our health-conscious population will do the work.
just look at us. saving the world and staying fit! us!

I actually heard my sweet-potato-ie say this the other day:
"what the ... ?!"

and you know how serious he is.

eat the egg.

Yes, what is the deal with the ineffective tax incentive bill??? There have been industrials and poorly paying non-union buy outs in other states, but hardly any actual commercials. At least that Dan and I have seen.

I want to see a silver lining from you people! Um... maybe it'll pick up in the spring?
I'm shrugging right now. I totally wish you could see it.

It's continuing to not be un-bad.
