Last summer I had the priviledge to be part of my friend's and his production company's short film project. I had no experience on film making (though las winter I was asked for two music videos, but the one was too obscure so I declined and sadly the other had trouble with the budget so it wasn't made after all although it sounded really really good and I was super excited, but these things happen..). So, when my friend called me and asked me to be part of this project, of course I said yes! Although I had a bit of a nasty boyfriend situation at the time, and especially when I heard I was to play a stripper I saw trouble coming. But hey, it's my life and no one can take away things an old grandmom Jodie might reminiscent as "those were the days". Okay, now I got sidetracked. :D Whoops.
So, I went for the shoot regardless of the (now x-) bf... luckily^^!
It was interesting to firstly, get my makeup done by a professional! I would've wanted to ask a million questions but wouldn't dare, cos she was there for the make up not for the advice giving..Oh and I had just started antibiotics for a sinus infection and I was a BIT blurry and dizzy and hell of a tired and coughing a LOT. I mean, coughing with tears in my eyes sort of thing.
So, it was a long day, but enjoyable nevertheless. ^^ I'm ever so happy I was asked and that I went. It was crazy seeing how filming actually happens. O.o Millions of takes of a one single scene. Wow. Oh and I learned one basic pole dance move! There happened to be a stripper present (cos we were shooting at a strip club) and she showed me how to do a spin. It seemed so difficult at first, but I think I mastered it quite well. And now all I wanna learn is how to do pole dance for real.
Okay, back to the topic again (I'm terrible at this). The short film or game trailer is still not ready, but today I bumped into my friend who's making the film and he told me it's almost done now! Great!!! An in case you wonder why's it been taking so long, it's probably cos this is a side project for everyone and nobody's actual work work. These guys have their studies and their production company and I understood this was a project for fun mostly. :)
Here some pics from the shoot. I believe they were both shot by Kelly the MUA. (Gotta say, love the tan on me :D!)
And here's "Duke" and me. (His beard was hidden cleverly when actually shooting.. ;))
