Booked a Job! Just wanted to let you know that I booked a webcast production shoot to promote a new dice/card football game for OTR Sports via your website. The production took place on July 9th on Long Island, it was a great experience! I got to interact with 7 other actors and even got a filmed one on one interview after the game! I look forward to building upon my resume with Explore Talent on my side. Thanks Again, Monica Rea McNamara
