Of casting and classics
I know, it’s been a while. So what’s been happening since last? Well, I’m now employed in three different places, different towns actually. I’m working out my summer schedule with Tetris precision and hope to be able to squeeze my trip to Scotland and two film shoots in there somewhere, somehow, as well.
Speaking of which. Been casting with Anna and Tove for their short film Jumbo, it’s been rather fun, because the characters in the film are hockey players, so I’ve got to wear all these pads and stuff. It really makes you feel tough, just wearing shoulder pads. Crazy.
Anyway, yesterday was a really interesting one, because we were casting the two main characters, one of which is deaf and the other is her best friend and also fluent in sign language. So, obviously the auditions were done with sign language. Annas cousin who is fluent in it came to help out, because obviously I couldn’t act this time since I don’t know sign language (I really wish I did, I think it’s beautiful!) so she performed the scene with the actors, and she also acted as an interpreter with one of the girls who was completely deaf.
My calender is a cobweb of todo’s. I would get stressed about it, but I’m too busy.
