The shoot will be on my patio, shown here. Imagine it set up nicely so it frames you, and makes you the centre of attention. We will always stay a good distance apart.
The movie will be reality style. The story of an actress and her career during the Covid 19 crisis. It is your chance to show what you can do. You create a character, or just be yourself. You can think of it as a one woman Fringe Festival type performance on camera.
It will be like a documentary in some places, where you tell about how Covid 19 is affecting your life. Share some stories about acting gigs or acting classes getting cancelled perhaps. Or stories about your job and if you got laid off.
Stories about isolating at home and how you are handling it. Mention any concerns or fears you have for yourself or family members.
This can vary a lot. It doesn't matter exactly what you talk about. The goal is to produce something which is entertaining and interesting. We can brainstorm lots of ideas, by email, and/or at your interview/audition.
You can tell a story, followed by a bit of script cold reading, then another story,
then more cold reading and so on. You can talk about any films you have been in, or any auditions you have done. You can sing a funny song I have written, but you don't have to. Remember, this is mostly farcical.
You can share what you think about the coronavirus, or your whole life philosopy. Anything you want! (almost.)
Audition information below. An outline of the movie with scene and story ideas is here.
To make it so it is not just a talking head movie, sometimes you can sit, and sometimes stand. Some will be close up, and some wider. The camera will be at different angles sometimes. There will also be a B camera on a tripod for a wide static shot. The B camera will be repositioned several times for variety. There will be cutaways to the B camera footage. It will be well shot.
What we want to end up with is some interesting footage that can be made into an entertaining, saleable video, about 50 to 65 minutes long.
An example is here on Amazon Prime.
You will be part of my Sweater Girls series of movies. For details on two sweater girl movies, look here, You will probably wear the same Marilyn Monroe wig which you will see. You will wear a pointy bra like the other actresses. What IS a sweater girl? Find that out there too.
(I will show you how to make a pointy bra at your audition/interview).
It will be put up for sale on Amazon Prime Video and possibly other platforms. I don't know if it will sell. I will be doing a lot of work editing, and I have to pay $1.25 USD per minute for closed captions. I am doing it because I am tired of sitting at home by myself, and I want to do something creative and fun. Also, I might find the actress I want for some "real movies" which you can find by starting on my homepage. There will be more pay for those movies.
I realize the pay is low, but it is all I can afford at this time. I want to find someone who thinks ahead to the future. This crisis will end someday.
