I got wind of this project quite awhile ago from MAF producer Matt Peters. I bookmarked it and visited it from time to time for updates. A few weeks ago I saw a notice that they were doing auditions and gave it a shot. I actually had to go back for a follow up audition, as I was neck in neck for the part with a talented actor. Luckily I managed to get the part and here I am 🙂
-We filmed this scene at The Comic Shop in Oswego, NY-a place I’d ironically been to before a number of times in the past so it was easy for me to find. Call time was 6:30 AM. I arrived at 6:35-but I wasn’t the last one there-surprise! 🙂
-Things got set up and we went thru the shot list. One interesting challenge for both me and Jody P. was were had to play the game while going thru the scene. This was the first time either of us had ever even seen the game, much less played it. As all you movie people know, when shooting scenes, the pieces not only had to be at the same place for each take, but put on the board in the same order. This was a little tricky but we got thru it. Cast & crew here were great to work with and we had a fun atmosphere going. Jody had to get done first cause he was filming on another project this same day so all his stuff got done first. It didn’t take too long afterwards to finish me up.
-My 2nd day of filming on this is scheduled for Wednesday. Looking forward to making it happen and getting things done. Pics are now up on my acting page on Facebook.
