*Blinks* Wait... What? (Looks like I'm gonna be in the movie!)

Post by melissa052 on Sun May 08, 2011 10:34 pm

Did I seriously just seriously just get asked to audition for a movie this summer by a friend?

Apparently I'd be perfect for a part and he wants me to audition!

I'm pretty much speechless right now trying to figure out if I have it in me to actually be an actress.

Never even saw myself as an actress. But it's not an opportunity everyone gets... And when they get it, they don't know the person in charge on a personal level...

Can somebody please give me some sort of push to answer this email with a 'Yes! Of course!' because right now I'm sitting here staring at the message like Shocked "M-m-m-me? Really?"

__________

Update! Talked to my friend today! He said the director liked the audition video and will be in touch shortly which is epically better than I expected. Very Happy I'm taking it as a very good sign.

___________

Next update!!!

No official decision yet on the character they want me for but it appears that I'm going down to LA for the 4th and final time later this week. This time I'll be there till next month whether I have the part or not. If I do have the part, I'll more than likely be gone till whenever I return home. Not that that matters much, considering... XD And if I don't get the part, worst case scenario is I am in the movie, just not as a main character. Either way, it will be an awesome experience and I can't wait to start! Very Happy

Sorry, can't give much more info than that, publicly anyways... Not until things are... Uh... More set in stone anyways... XD And even then, I doubt I'd say much. Just exploding with excitement here. Very Happy

Right. Plus it's a once in a lifetime chance and like my friend Sunny told me it could be the start of a whole career for me. It's funny though because I never even considered acting as a possible career and suddenly a huge opportunity pops up.

Oh, and I've officially accepted.

You are sure it's porn it's not porn right? Cause you would be amazed at how often one can get confused and accidentally try out for a porn movie

LMAO! No, it's not porn, Rex! It's a coming of age indie about a high school writer's club president and his sidekick. I'd be the sidekick. Which means acting opposite him, and a lead role. I'm reading through some excerpts I have to film myself reading and send back and I swear it's based off us in high school.

Woah! So what is it that makes you perfect for the part? Do you even act?

Good luck! Get me a walk-on role or something. Wink

True, true! I'm sitting here trying to remember the lines I have to tape myself reading. I hate having a bad memory but grandma says I should record myself saying them and listen to it while I sleep. She thinks it'll help? Weird but who knows.

The thing that makes me perfect for the role is simple. It's pretty much based off us in high school, the character he wants me for was written with me in mind. Smile No, I don't act, never even considered being an actress and he knows that. XD

When learning lines try first getting the general gist. Remember the specific topic. The get more and more detailed. The brain learns better when it follows common sense. So try something like

First concentrate on where you are supposed to be. Like a bar. Then concentrate on who you are supposed to talk to like the blonde or the red head, then follows ordering a drink, small chat and so on. Like don't seperate the lines from the situation. I think the term was not seeing the trees from teh forest or something? Basically the more in tune you are with the situation the easier it becomes to learn the lines since they come naturally

Or you can try singing like this Wink

Hehe! Thanks for the advice, Rex! My cousin actually gave me similar advice! Smile It definitely works!

Anywho! I got the audition tape filmed tonight and emailed to my friend! Here's to hoping I did well enough because this is a huge opportunity! I know I wasn't perfect but I didn't completely stink either! XD I'd show the footage I got but I'm not allowed to post it anywhere or give anyone the excerpts. For copyright reasons.

Update! Talked to my friend today! He said the director liked the audition video and will be in touch shortly which is epically better than I expected. Very Happy I'm taking it as a very good sign.
