I'm scheduled to work a commercial tomorrow morning but I have no idea where I'm supposed to be or when. Production contacted me on Friday to confirm me and get my email address. It's 9:30 Sunday night and I have zero info. I called the number they called me on, but it goes to production's voicemail.

What do I do? Am I still on the clock at call even if I show up late because they failed to get me the necessary info? I've gotten late call sheets before, but to get no call sheet is a new one in my experience.

If you followed all reasonable courses of action and came up empty, you are on the clock at call and they are at fault. Period. Most email-only call sheets I have worked from ask for a reply to confirm receipt either by text, email or phone. A 'no reply' from you should have prompted a call to reconnect.

Have a great day!
