Yesterday I went to Queens to meet up with my friend to help her film her short film. She asked me to play a role because one of the actresses flaked. Originally I thought I was going to be an extra...but she didn't tell me until I was there that I was going to be the main role. Well, good thing it was a silent movie!
So I played a scene where it was bright and cheerful of me gardening! However, I did play the dead body in the film.
We had a couple of problems in the beginning with the camera...they were using an film camera instead of digital and had to charge the camera for a while in the middle of shooting. To add to that, the guy playing the male character was 5 hours late. Yes, you read that correctly. FIVE hours. He was supposed to be there at 12:30. Though I guess it worked at the end since his parts were darker than mine.
Playing the dead body was horrible. I was dragged on top of dirt ground and into a mini makeshift grave. Then I had dirt thrown on top of me (well, just my feet and legs). Good thing they only shot the bottom portion of my body and not my face.
We started filming at 11AM and didn't finish until 8PM. At the end of the day, I was just ready to soak in a long hot bath (which I totally did when I got home).
However, it was a really fun experience.
I can't wait to see the finished movie!
