Admittedly, a no one
So, at some point in my existence. (Okay, ever since I could speak really) I have always had this idea that someday I would make a "play" "movie" / something???
I am standing here, in 2012 to tell you, that after filming a "pilot" just over a year ago now - it appears that the actual series might be a total reality. O_o...
It looks like I have a cast (or at least most of) and as I sit and write up character sheets and review script ideas, I can not even close to believe that this could be a reality. It's really all just for fun. No one has any extensive training on this, or anything. But, I've had multiple people tell me now that I have some kind of natural talent and I need to go to school for it.
Honestly? I would LOVE to go to school for all of this jazz. I have had acting training (although admittedly, I need WAY more, and would love to get it) the biggest problem (Which everyone faces now days) is a severe lack of cashola. The exact contents of my pockets might actually create moths.
Now having been part of Beckinfield since early January, I have been raised to a point of realizing that when everyone keeps telling me that I can do this... Maybe, in fact, I can O_o... I was contacted by the staff a few times and told that I am doing well, and that I have produced "stellar" videos in the past. But what is perhaps more exciting to me, is the fact that in the line up of "most watched videos" - while none of them were "me" and "my character" out of the twelve, FOUR of them were made by yours truly. I was astounded.
My father (who has actually written film scores before) has offered to not only ACT for this project, but to also write us our OWN music. GASP! Then there's my next door neighbor, who not only happens to be an actor, but also flat out offered to be the serial killer character in this whole debacle!
Even though this is all entirely for fun, and no one hopes to get "famous" or "rich" or even really "noticed" I can't imagine the amounts of FUN we will have just getting this off the ground. I am totally stoked.
We are looking at cameras, microphones, and trying to figure out where we can get the money, cut costs, etc.
Then there's me... The person who's writing, directing, and has (stupidly) decided to take on one of the main characters.
God...? O_O Admittedly, I am no one.
