If you’re one of the people who was contacted for a second round of casting but have not yet heard back, realize that I am going through the submissions daily. I have received quite a few and, as you know, they are somewhat lengthy. I’m also balancing the submissions against the need to plan a reasonable itinerary, amongst other variables, so this is a bit more time-consuming than just picking any stand-out submissions.
I promise to make an announcement here once the final cut is made. At that point, everyone who is going to be profiled will have been notified and anyone who has not been notified as of that announcement will know they were not selected. I do wish I could meet more of you than I’ll be able to meet. Please know that even if you are not selected, your submission was strongly considered and caused me much deliberation!
