Charlotte Metro Credit Union

Several weeks ago, I had the privilege of working with Sam Vincent and Jared Dudley of The Charlotte Bobcats on a TV commercial for Charlotte Metro Credit Union.

It was a full day shoot in two locations, and was an absolute blast! I made several new friends during filming, including the writer, Nathan Tothrow.

One of the most memorable parts of filming, for me, was spending several hours in the huddle (which takes up only a few second of the spot). My legs were sore for days! You'll also notice a beige colored purse that I am holding. Those who know me will recognize this as the purse I carry all the time. If I had known it would end up being a prop- I would have cleaned out all the loose (and heavy!) change first!

Nathan was kind enough to spend two hours uploading the commercial to YouTube. You can view it here:

The spot was written by Nathan Tothrow and directed by Joanne Hock of Emulsion Arts. The cinema-quality special effects were added by Tony Elwood of Indievision.

My thanks to everyone involved!!

Wow Kara, I just saw the spot.

You're performance as ablack, male basketball player was so REAL.

I knew your strengths as a vocal performer but that would have been an acting stretch even for DeNiro yet you made it look effortless.

Amazing.

Signed,
