But first let's start with the numbers:
- 19 print auditions
- 24 commercial auditions
- 16 industrial auditions
- 2 film auditions
- 2 commercial voiceover auditions
That's 63 total auditions. Rather remarkably, that's the exact same number as last year, and down once again from my 2007-2009 highs:
- 2011: 63
- 2010: 63
- 2009: 101
- 2008: 103
- 2007: 86
- 2006: 48
On the bookings front, here's how things looked:
- 5 print
- 4 commercial *
- 5 on-camera industrial
- 2 voiceover industrial
Money-wise, a seemingly ordinary year turned out pretty well. It was actually my second best year ever in terms of revenue. Second best by far, actually -- about 40% higher than last year, which was my previous second best.
All in all, that's a year I would not kick out of bed for eating crackers.
* 1 of the commercial bookings was canceled (though I still got paid, so it counts) and another was just a "spec" commercial.
