Fruits of My...Typing?

Ok, here goes daily entry #1!
Currently I am sitting in an office at the Maine Studios reading a play script that is being turned into a movie. The best part? They want my notes. MY notes! I was trusted with the project because every time I have downtime I'm reading a different play. (My library is getting quite vast, by the way.) I just think that it's really cool that I get to actually do things I enjoy at "work." Ok, yeah, it's an internship, I'm not getting money, and I'm not getting school credit, but the experience is totally worth it. I do love me some resume-worthy jobs!
I'm also considering going to a casting call this coming Monday for some short films. I'm not quite sure if I'm ready to take the leap into movies yet, especially because I have no idea how to work the camera. My training is strictly theatre. I am, yes, a theatre snob. Yet, I feel as if this experience will benefit me somehow, even if I don't get cast in any movies. I don't want to appear ignorant, but I honestly have no idea what I'm supposed to do...or wear! Do I wear an audition dress? I mean, I have's black with tiny white spots. It's cute. Oh...I don't know...perhaps I'm over-thinking? Either way, it doesn't hurt to try.
Does it?

Do you know what the short movie is about? That might help you when deciding what to wear. I would think that you could learn how to act on film, it might be easier to just do it, to learn it. Also you could ask Vito, he would know the key points. Or you could find a book, I'm sure someone's written one on that subject.
