About This Project
“Tech Prep” was a big break for me at the time. The producer, Dave Damron of DRM Productions, saw me handling the host role in an evening of Rodgers & Hammerstein songs at the local campus of Ohio State University. For an hour and a half worth of work as the on-camera spokesperson for a North Central Ohio high-school program called Tech Prep, I got paid $75. I was a senior in high school at the time, and it felt great to be doing paid acting work that was also being filmed. I memorized long paragraphs of copy remarkably quickly, and then just shot.
Some things you’ll note are that my nose is red from a time when I had a large pimple healing right there. Also, I have a thick, thick mane of hair. I’m really happy with my work on this industrial, which was shot in Mansfield, Ohio, at the production studio where the local news channel was also housed.
