Quick Update - ADV 9

Today was day 9 of production, we’re more than halfway done. I’m still working on the production rhythm and these early morning starts, but I’m getting there.

I’m beginning to lighten up more and connect better with the cast and crew. They’re all really great people. I had a good conversation with one of the cast, whose pretty famous, and I was just struck by how humble and nice he was. 

Had a talk with another actor and it was great to hear her concept of playing her role while keeping an eye on the content of the scene. She’d give the others space for them to play up emotion while she’d play it subdued to act as contrast.

Today was a good refresher in why I love film and acting.

Days 02 & 03 - ADV in NYC - Rehearsals, Film

Past two days been busy with prep work for the shoot. Also I’ve been able to drop in on rehearsals to help out and meet the actors, which has been great. Even got a chance to do a short improv with a child actor where I had to be a dad. The director has told me before I’d make a good Asian dad. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing…

Found some free time earlier tonight to check out “L'Avventura” by Michelangelo Antonioni with co-crew member and friend, Richard S.

Kinda slow, but some very nice shots and an interesting exploration of loss and desire.
