So I met Elizabeth on location the other day and we had a practice day with some of the actors!
Apparently getting to practice on the characters on a day before the filming starts is unusual so we’re really lucky on this one. I certainly feel lucky as I had a chance to get used to some of the products we are going to be using a lot and I got to use the airbrush a few times and feel far more confident. It was just the ladies as their make-up is more extreme then the men’s, and they were all lovely. So full of character and personality. I have to admit that I was expecting at least a couple of Diva’s but they were funny, patient (one of them was in the chair for around two hours and never complained once!) and friendly which definitely helped to settle my nerves.
Unfortunately it’s all a little secretive and I’m not allowed to tell you anything about what we’re actually doing( understandable really!), but I wanted it on record how good it feels to be working on a project and getting some real experience. According to Elizabeth and Karin I need to keep the Call Sheet with my name on it (not just as a souvenir!) as it’s proof that I’ve done actual work and it counts as one credit towards the 140(?) credits I would need to get into the union to work on productions. If I got that wrong at all just let me know, my mind was trying to take everything in at once and I may not have heard the details properly
All in all a good start to my first ever project. Long may it continue!
