This is what happens when I'm allowed to watch TV unsupervised.
I have a very helpful table, with each of my chapter topics and what I want examples to approach at each one. This is guiding my ultimate choices pretty clearly- based on this All-Star seasons are going to be pretty important- but unfortunately, the more I look at things for the beginning chapters, the more I think that the best way for me to learn more about the casting process/understand it more clearly would be to fill out an application and make a video.
This is a terrible idea that can only end poorly.
On the other hand, given the current economic stability of this country, it might be more cost-effective than searching futilely for a job. Also, it would probably be a lot easier to get information once I'm in the weird fraternal organization that is former reality TV contestants.
...Okay, who wants to bring over a video camera and film me?
