Death may be the greatest of all human blessings. ~Socrates

Who knew it was so hard to die? Today was my second attempt at acting (the first attempt was to play Jesus, and that was 33 years ago in a nativity play)  and it is hard work. I had a tiny  bit part in a scene that runs for about 40-50 seconds.

The scene involved my witnessing then attempting to stop a kidnapping and getting a knife through the chest for my troubles.

Later on, as a joke we chalked my body out   \""Chalk

I think there were about 6-7 shots I was in, some of them we did up to 8 or 9 takes, plus 4-5 rehearsals.

There were also two other scenes shot on the day (in other locations) In total we worked for about 10 hours (7am – 5pm) for a total of about 2 – 2.5 minutes of finished film. It will get better as we get into the heavier dialogue scenes.

1st Shoot Day

Today is the first shoot day for the movie, and the first scene involves me playing a bystander who gets stabbed in the chest.

We then head to the back of Lilydale Lake and Coldstream Airport to round out a full day of shooting.

There is a more public link to some pages with information about the movie.

I’ve helped Luke out a bit with a few changes to the script, and he’s asked me to be Unit Manager and oversee the props.
