My First Act - A journey to be a STAR!
This is so exciting yet frustrating at the same time!!!
I had actually decided to blog this at later date to give u guys a surprise but..
Suppose an entry of Oct but..sigh..
Cheryl, my jiemei had a project featuring on "Singapore Film" whereby they have to come out with a storyline that merely represent Singapore identity. They were required to run in like a short video clip and...
Cheryl jio me a.k.a a born actress to be their lead actress..
I was given the script to read and familarize with the scenes..
Well, my given name was "Rui Ling"..So Ci-na sia..hahahhaa!
That's not the main point..
"Rui Ling" was suppose to be a sickly and depressed JC student..
And when i told my colleagues about my role..they were like LOL-ing lo!
They just could not bring themselves that the always-happy-go-lucky siao gi na was going to act sick n depress for "Rui Ling" sake..
Truthfully, I also find it hard to believe la but I have the confidence to act well!
That's the basic requirement of a STAR - Professionalism!
The story is quite typical but it lacks of singapore identity..
To me, singapore identity is "Kiasu", "Comparison", "Timid to standup for any wrongdoings" and etc..
The scenes also quite typical..school, home and singapore river..
Cheryl was saying that I could act!
Most of the scenes, I have no NG..('o',)v
Most of the time, I got to be super sad and one scene required me to drop a tear..
Wah Ai-sey...!Golden tear ok!
It was pretty easy to drop a tear then..
Coz I was in a midst of a problematic life..n jz by humming a song can made me wept..
Beside that, I was required to stone too..
As I said i had a problematic life then, I had been stone-ing for days before the filmming..So it was pretty convenient for me la..hehehhee!
The rest of the casts are fun and have made the whole activity a fun one..
But from this, I understand how hard and tiring is to be in an entertainment line..
Time is flexible but can really drag down one's life if there is flimming..
Have to withstand all sort of situation and weather conditions..
Even u have tons of problems or not well, still have to do it..
I do understand that!I was made to run n run n run n run n run for the film..
Super tired lo!Legs were aching the next day lo..
But, it was a pretty enjoyable experience..
and I thought i deserve "Best Actress Award"..haahhahaha!=P
ACtually got video one lo....
But it was in DVD format..cannot upload to youtube!!!
Did show to my parent and my dad thought I should go into acting..
He think i acted very naturally...(I dun tink so leh)
hahahhaa..well, that's encouraging..=)
I am glad I accept and help Cheryl..
Wonderful experience..At least my life will not feel unfulfil in a way as I get to go through all kind of experiences..
Yup, I like to do thing that ppl usually will not do..
Hence, do it before you can't..
You will not know what will happen in the next min..
So, do or say wateva before it is too late..
Remember..LIVE WITH NO REGRET..
