A few weeks ago a friend ask me if I wanna participate of this event that was held in my city, his girlfriend's film school classmates were organizing themselves to produce the film and we could join.
I always liked to write stories, I made a couple of comics when I was younger, so when they begun with the writing I was there giving opinnions and ideas for the dialogues, at some point they told me if I wanna be acting there... I said hell yeah!!! I never acted anywhere, not even in school performances, never been in a tv studio nor a film set, filming is tedious... but awesome!!! We spent the whole saturday filming until 6am Sunday, that day was spent editing, editing was way harder than what I thought, I didn't knew video and audio where recorded indepently, didn't knew you need to match them later, so, with all the "damn, I didn't knew we need to do this" the short film is... not really done, there's a lot of stuff that does not make sense, there are missing scenes, you can't see what the doctor is actually doing... you can't see the microphone props that are central to the story, the pace is way off... well, you can tell we didn't have time to polish it. Btw I'm the bald one in the black shirt. Oh, it is in spanish, lol. Enjoy... or not? VIDEO The idea was that the veterinarian is implanting surveilance devices on rich people's pets, my character is the link between the doctor and the government that is behind all these practices, he accidentally kills the dog from and important person and the story begins there. A key scene is that the veterinarian had a similar device implanted before without his knowledge, the way is shown it's very vague, and we can't actually see what he was doing with the dog in the first scene. The man with the cat on his lap is a famous lawyer/politician here. Anyway, I suck at acting and it feels like a missed chance to make something I'd be proud of, but still, it is a first try and I know what I -and we- could make different to improve the quality, I can be a film director, hope to some day have chance.
That’s when I thought, “good grief”
