I’m ready for my closeup, Mr. Ilbay…

I dropped by the soundstage yesterday, a student film is in production, and I wanted to spy on the shoot.  It was very cool, darkly atmospheric.  Some of our faculty are playing roles, and it was really fun to seem them put through their paces.  The crew, director, producer, etc are so impressive.  They are organized, know what they want and move very quickly.  No time is wasted making decisions, fixing equipment, messing around.  This is a professional shoot.

I thought they might let me operate the fog machine, or push a button on a microphone or something, but no.  I just watched in the monitor.

But they asked me to come back on Saturday and be IN the film!!!  I’m going to be a prison guard.  I wonder if I’ll have a line to say.  This has completely changed the complexion of the weekend.  I’ll write another entry after the shoot tomorrow morning!
