News regarding the “Bottle Service” webseries! (UPDATE)

Remember Bottle Service, the webseries that filmed some pilot episodes last February up at Saratoga’s Mare / Metro / whatever it’s called now?  The one where I had a cameo appearance as a paparazzo photographer, and then later another cameo as a muscle-headed enforcer in an entourage? It was a great few days of work and fun for me, and I enjoyed every minute of it.

Well, some time ago I received an e-mail from Daniela Malave, the former Albany Patroons dance team member who is now carving out a career as a New York City actress.

Hope all is well and wanted to keep you posted on Bottle Service. We will be holding a launch/ gala event at Metro on Sept 15th and would love for you to be our photographer and talk about the event in your blog. You have been an amazing asset to our production and would love for you to continue to be part of the process. Hopefully the date works for you and look forward to hearing from you!

Sounds like fun!

And, in fact, here’s more information on the upcoming event.

Teetering on the knife-edge of glamour and grime, Bottle Service is a weekly web-series centered on the inner workings of a high-class nightclub, its staff and its VIP Patrons. The series follows a diverse principal cast of five whose lives revolve around, and livelihoods depend on, “Club It”.

You are cordially invited to attend!
