A few weeks back I had the pleasure to work on a project for director CJ Richter. “Some Punishment” was my first short film and an incredible experience.
From watching the “making of” of movies, you always hear actors complain about “waiting around” until the crew is done with the lighting or other technical adjustments. They are not kidding!
While there’s a bunch of people walking around, moving sets, watching your every move, it’s important to remember you are playing a character and try to ignore the noise. Sometimes you’ll be asked to walk in a room with 2o people staring at you and pretend to be alone! It’s easier said than done.
But overall, I think I got pretty lucky to work with such talented and hard-working people. I owe a special thanks to CJ and the producer Lauren Schmandt for being so freakishly amazing.
