Where is Clayton?
Travel Blog

    At 2:23 post meridian Hawaii time, my phone rings with the immediately noticed (808) Hawaii area code preceding. On the other end, Amy from the casting company. A greeting and her name comes through clearly but the reception suddenly goes down the tube. I'm on the edge of my seat wondering what news she will bring. Scott has frequently placed calls to Mystery Ellsworth or myself just to chit chat but a call from Mrs. Amy surely means business. My present residence has concrete walls so I rush over to the window to search for call clarity. She repeats, "Hey, it's Amy from Pirates." My return "hello" is spoken as I'm holding my breath. "I'm calling to let you know ...
that you were chosen for a British soldier role for Pirates of the Caribbean 4." Of coarse my excitement goes through the roof but I tame my emotions and return a few words of gratitude. She continues with some details about wardrobe fittings which would be held tomorrow and some other tentative filming dates. I jot down pertinent information as she reads through her list. As of now, filming which involves British soldiers would last four or five days and begin sometime in the middle of June. In addition, a "weapons training" day would be in less than two weeks. Amy adds another possible date in August but I know how frequently scheduling changes so I didn't give it much thought. Soon enough the call is over and I'm left gathering my thoughts at the kitchen table. What a ride this has been and I'm very excited that it continues. Wardrobe fittings would undoubtedly be an experience all in itself. Who knows what doors this will open or if I will choose to walk through any of those passages. Opportunity knocks and I'm staring at it in the face wondering what to say. Where is Clayton, you ask? I'm prepping for wardrobe and Pirates of the Caribbean 4. Come find me.
