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 one...it'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.
