I was in a movie! or will be... well its not a movie... More like a short film (12 minutes to be exact). So if you were around me around September 12th, you may have realized that I was way exhausted! Well that was because I was on call for the movie Monday and Tuesday night... And I mean all night! Both days I didn't leave the set till 6 in the morning!
So some info about the film. The title is "Your Milk Man". It was written and directed by a real good friend of mine, Dan Skubal. He works for a small (but very well known) film company here in Chicago called, Zacuto. So Dan wrote a very short but sweet story set in the 1950's (or at least i think thats when it was... it may be the 60's). The story follows a milk man and a lovely house wife. As these two sit in a diner, their affair starts to snowball into a last second decision. The film then unravels and ends when the milk man is confronted by the husband. I won't tell more since I will most likely be posting the film or will show it at some point... or make everyone go see it. OH... since you are probably wondering... I was not the milk man... but a professor. I was an extra in the film. But I did have a kinetic acting role (haha that sounds official right?). My role require me to grade papers through out the film, and then during one moment I had to react to the milk man at one point. Since my position on the set was pretty centered, I had to be in every shoot... So you will see me through out the film... haha.
But anyways, what I really wanted to stress was that if you have never been an actor or an extra for a film, you must! I had a blast (mostly because all my friends were involved with the film). But I realized how much work and people go into a film... I mean two entire nights and about a team of 50 for a 12 minute film!
Here is the link for the film.
Oh and the illustrations for the posters and stuff were done by my BEST friend Roni LaPage. Here is a link for her work!!! I know you'll love it :)
