Apparently when you’re an actor, you must have a small highlight tape of your skills at arms reach at all time, in the event someone questions your skill level and wants to see you perform. They call it a reel, and I’ve been needing one for some time now. In high school I had to make a reel (which I called a highlight tape) for colleges to see my basketball skills, so it only makes sense that I do the same to get booked for great acting gigs.
So the only problem now is that I have no script, camera, or other actors to help me with this…so I went recruiting. I found another actor with the same need, but we both had now had no script nor camera man. So we pondered. Finally we decided to just make our own script. We brainstormed on some good topics and I wrote a pretty comical scene about an asshole doorman. The only problem now is getting it on film. So we pondered again. Finally we found a guy by the name of Mauricio (contact me for his info if you would like to shoot a scene as well, his prices are very modest). Now that we had all we needed it was time to film. But then we realized that we didn’t have a place to shoot it. So we did what anyone who lives in an apartment with a doorman would do. We waited until the doorman got off work and used his desk to film the scene.
There were some minor things we could not change, like the music in the background, but other than that I’m impressed with Mauricio’s work. We were also in a time crunch because my nosey ass neighbors kept asking did the owner give us permission. I’m like with as much rent that asshole charges us, I should have consent to do whatever I want in this building. Plus its much easier to ask for forgiveness than permission, everyone knows that!
Here is the scene! Please comment and or hit me up and let me know what you think! I love criticism, good and bad of course.
