I still considered myself fresh faced out of media school and this wasn't the gig I had envisioned picking up. Yes, I had some local cable experience, even had some time in front of the camera presenting local features. That they were viewed by an audience you could count on your hands was irrelevant. I had experience!
When I heard of an opportunity on a low budget reality pilot, I guessed it could be something fun. Something different. Something new. My application had been sent with an expectation that I wouldn't hear anything more about it.
