Also we’re only shooting the trailer today, not the actual film
And the producer was like ‘yeah so we’re anticipating about a minute’s footage to come out of this so we’ll have three hours rehearsal and the rest of the day will be filming’
ok we good i plugged it into my laptop and it turned back on
And I just got a message from a 37 year old crossdresser
Man the two student film auditions I’ve been to this week have been super intense.
The first one, the one with all the theatre school students, I had to prepare a monologue, do a cold script reading and do an improvisation with one of the other girls
The one I had today was like a goddamn job interview. It’s like they were trying to be as intimidating as possible and it was rly weird?
Like there was this one dude who had obviously decided he was in charge and was imperiously jotting down what I said on a pad while asking me questions like ‘what can you bring to this role?’ ‘what made you apply for this film?’ and ‘what are your artistic inspirations?’ like dude i’ve been on a train for an hour and a half and then had to potter my way around chichester trying to find this place i’m not prepared for these questions. So I completely bullshitted them, and half of my answers made me sound cool and prepared and professional and the other half were me rambling and desperately trying to make flimsy connections before trailing off. Like they were either really well delivered or made literally no sense.
The acting bit was fine, but out of the blue they were like ‘have you prepared a monologue or something?’, despite NEVER mentioning it beforehand. Luckily I’d prepared one for the first audition, but as I’d only learnt that in like half an hour I had a bit of trouble remembering it. Only the start though, I was alright after that.
And then there was good cop, the one guy on the audition panel who smiles at everything you say and pulls good listening faces and makes an effort to laugh at all your lame half-jokes. Good for u audition panel good cop
MUCH LOVED Photographer Marc Nixon made a series of portraits of teddy bears and other stuffed animals along with their age, size and history. Some were very much loved :-)
