What's weird is it's a video call, from someone using Duo, Google's video chat app available today for i OS and Android.I probably know this person, because they'd need my number to make the call. I had to self-tape with my mom, but it didn’t go anywhere. It wasn’t really that good of an audition, on my part, so I was like, “Okay, you win some, you lose some.” I’m used to that. Our casting director really connected with me in the room. Finally, they were like, “Look, there was a lot of disagreement over who Veronica should be.” It was a character that everyone has grown up with for so long that everyone had an attachment to the characters, but they finally came together on who she should be.
So I take a sec to check my hair, ensure I don't have food in my teeth, and position the camera to avoid filling the frame with chins.
Apparently Neeson was wearing a suit of armour and there was an actual eagle watching them, which must have been quite a sight.
I don't recognize the number, but that's normal.
The problem isn't the app so much as chatting on camera. Or you can do what I do: Watch the small thumbnail of yourself.
Video calling has been the next big thing in communication for two decades, and a staple of science fiction for far longer. Even now, when the tech is good enough and everyone carries Internet-connected cameras, it's hardly the first thing you think to do. How do you hold the phone far enough from your face to avoid looking terrifying yet close enough to avoid yelling to be heard? I used to play videogames during phone calls, and texting while watching TV is standard for anyone with a phone and a TV.
