A reader whose name I will withhold for obvious reasons writes–
I’m a recent film graduate, and will be moving to LA soon. Not too long ago, a casting producer of [Big Time Reality Show] came to my school to give a presentation on reality TV. After the presentation, I introduced myself and told her what I see myself doing. Long story short, we exchanged contact info and she told me to contact her once I’m in LA. Is this standard Hollywood talk or did she really mean for me to contact her once I’m in LA?
Someone speaking at a school should know better than to give her number out to students, unless she really does want you to call.
People do often say, “Call me” without really meaning it. But I figure that’s there fault for being a fake Hollywood person.
That being said, don’t go searching for someone’s phone number in a union directory or something and call them out of the blue. You’ll come across as a creepy stalker, at best.
