Current Mood: ...Who cares? XP|
Listening To: Angela Aki, Rain. [because Angel Zakuro has me obsessed. ;p]
First off, if my welcome post is cut off, just refresh the page. I don't know why it does that. =/ Also this post itself might be cut off.
NEW THEME! :D I get bored with themes quickly, so here is Ginji Amano from GetBackers. <33
It's really hot here. It's only going to get hotter, probably around high 90s later on this week. I haven't been doing much outside activity, other than taking my dog for a walk and being dragged to the pool by my mom. I don't want to go to the pool. I don't want to see screaming children and grumpy old people. I want to just be cooped up inside with the A/C, TV, and computer. xD Can't she understand that? I'm a 21st century teenager, I have my needs!
No, I'm not an anti-outsider. I love the outdoors; it's just too hot for comfort, you know? Soon [July 2nd] I'll be heading up to New Hampshire for two months to go to camp and spend time with my aunt, uncle, and friends who live there. If there is one place that is perfect in the summer time, it's NH. The water is freeeezing for a person like me, but after a week I get used to it. It's kind of like a painted picture when you realize you're swimming inside a circle of mountains in fresh lake water. x3 Very refreshing.
Hmm... Well that's not until next week, so what else have I been doing? I have to get my summer reading list out of the way. We're suppose to read The Life of Pi and Siddhartha. I'm reading Siddhartha right now. It's better than I thought, but my favorite school bok so far has to be Great Expectations. I don't know why, but I just loved that book in my freshman year. And then there was The Old Man and the Sea.
That was a horrible book.
Enough of books, though. I've been doing something that might be exciting! :D Recently I signed up to do Extra work for FinnCannon Associates, which is located in Wilmington, NC. About 3 hours away from where I live. FinnCannon is a Filming Industry - like a mini Hollywood! Are you familiar with the show One Tree Hill? Well it's filmed in Wilmington with FinCannon. For those of you who aren't familiar with the term "extra", it's just a person in the background of a shot, maybe saying a line or two on camera. They might ask you (and 50+ other people) to just walk down the street and the'd film you. Part of a 5 second shot that takes over 3 hours to do.
Well I was called in for an HBO shooting of a new pilot (that means they film one or two episodes, give it to a production company to see if they like it, and if they do they produce it and then they start a series.) East Bound and Down. They told me to say a line on camera! :'D I was excite, because if I get more than four words to say and whatever I said is included in that episode/movie/whatever (because they do a LOT of editing, I don't know if my line will be included), I would be eligible to be in SAG - Screen Actors Guild, which means a whole new realm of agents and exclusive auditions that non-Union (non-SAG members, like I am now) cannot get a hold of. I sure do hope I get that line of mine in.
Being on the filming of a show certainly showed me how much work it is to film one. You might sit down in a movie theatre and see people walking around in the background, and not be aware that it probably took them two hours just to do that shot. =/ Made me aware of twhat goes on behind the scenes.
Phew! Well, that's it so far. xD Thanks so much for commenting yesterday! That's double of what I had on my first post. Hehe, maybe I can double it this time. ;p
