PERI Duo Case

Last month I was invited on set for the filming of the PERI Duo Case launch ad. This is THE case that iPhone users (myself included) have been waiting for! It’s the world’s first charging case with Bluetooth & wifi enabled speakers… & it’s a must-have accessory.
I’m driving around East Los Angeles on a Sunday morning, looking for the address. Siri isn’t helping too much and I’m left to go against her (incorrect) driving directions to figure it out on my own. I stumble upon the warehouse when she lets me know that I “have arrived at my destination.” I’m pretty excited… I mean (other than my very cool experience filming for LA Ink a few years ago) I’ve never been “casted” for anything….sure, I’m an extra, but it’s still pretty cool.
When I walk in, I’m greeted by new friend, Clint Schaff, who I met through my friends at Rhymesayers, at the Camp Flog Naw Carnival. Clint is the star of the commercial, and the one who invited me. We’re going to be filming a party scene & I get to be one of the party-goers. I think I can handle that. 😉
The set is newly built and it’s really cool. There are multiple “rooms” that Clint will walk through, as he shows the speakers in action.

They’ve been filming since morning & it’s just about time to shoot our scene.

I head to a room where I meet other extras. Some of them are actual actors, sent here from an agency and others are some of the genius minds behind this product’s development. Pretty cool stuff!

We mingle & make small talk with one another. It’s good practice for our camera time. Soon, they call us to the set & we’re ready for our close ups…
After placing us around the room and testing camera range, they yell, “Action!” Cameras are rolling & all we have to do is smile and have a good time. It’s pretty easy to do.

After a few runs, it’s a wrap – for our scene, anyway. Party’s over. We head back to the room where we all originally met & enjoy our lunch (provided by the PERI Team).
After my meal, and some great conversations with some really cool people, I’m off to enjoy my Sunday and the beautiful Southern California weather.

Special Thanks to Clint Schaff, The team at PERI & of course, the guys at Rhymesayers for letting me be a part of this!

On a side note:
As I post this blog entry, my roomies coincidentally start talking about their first ever personal music players… Did you ever have a Walkman? What was the first cassette you listened to on it…? This (single) was mine…

  1. Love this post! & that commercial is awesome, you’re such a star!! ❤ I never had a walkman (always used my brothers) but the first song I ever heard on one was by Janet Jackson! I wish I could remember which song – I just remember being excited about it 🙂 my brother had copied the Janet song from the radio for me (remember the scotch tape trick on cassette tapes to record?) and then let me listen to it on his walkman. My first Personal Music Player was the DISCMAN! Man, what a throwback! I had a silver one 😀 First 2 CD's bought at the same time – a Disney sign-a-long and Kriss Kross (talk about polar opposites lol) …Jump, jump…The Mac Dad will make ya Jump Jump…

    • Lol! I love this response, friend! Thanks for the positve feedback & thanks for sharing your memories. Too cute. I never used scotch tape, i used paper, but yeah, same concept. Haha! Love the trowback song references. I totally had both, too. A Disney sing-a-long & the kriss kross joint. Too funny!!
