Rehearsals and a Scene :)

I can probably name all of my posts “Rehearsals” until May, but there are also other things going on ๐Ÿ™‚

Thursday’s rehearsal was one actress short, but we still managed to run through all of our acting bits twice. Even with the guy who was replacing said actress going for comedy more than accuracy with the lines and maneurisms. Although it wasn’t a romantic scene, swapping a girl for a guy can still make it quite interesting.

Friday I went to Mcgill for a bit and figured out when we would be filming for the “Yes! Let’s Make a Movie” event. Basically, someone decided that instead of sitting around and waiting for someone else to cast us, we would get together in teams and just film something. I missed the day the teams were formed, and most likely won’t be able to skip the rehearsal next Sunday in order to see the finished projects, but I was there yesterday to film ๐Ÿ™‚

I play a reporter, and the scene was mostly improvised, but I had a few answers that I knew my interviewee would have to give. It was really fun to step into the shoes of a reporter, and when comments or questions popped into my mind, I would ask them and got a few laughs from the guys behind the camera. I already knew the other actors in the scene, but had never met the crew. At the end of my scene, they told me they enjoyed working with me and would like to do it again someday. I completely agree. It was a lovely experience and I can’t wait to see how the whole thing comes together ๐Ÿ™‚

As for today, we had a rehearsal where we ran through the entire show twice. It was our last Sunday rehearsal before going to the arena where the show will be held. It’s getting close guys, so I hope you have your tickets ๐Ÿ˜‰
