Filming Yourself

So, nowadays, actors often film their own auditions.  The casting director emails you some sides and then you record yourself on your handy home camera or, in my case, phone.

This weekend I had an audition for a blurb on cosmetic dentistry.  “Must have white teeth,” etc. read the call notice.  Now my teeth are fairly white and I did get chosen to audition.  However, as I recorded myself, I was forced to look at my mouth.  And look at it I did.  As each moment passed, I became more self-conscious and unnerved at what I can only call a Kafkaesque transformation unfolded.
