It’s four days to my Personal Lifestyle exam and I’m contemplating exam suicide. My heart and soul is entirely with my volunteer work and jobhunting adventure* and these wretched things just have to nag at the back of my big head. As a professional couch potato, I’m really not concerned with how the fats around my waist will lead to a mile-long list of chronic diseases, much less write about them in an *shudder* exam. Exams are a hindrance to my future! They’re megasized wing-clippers! Just die, you knaves!
So, yes, I was at the filming of SPLAT!’s adapted musical at AMK last Saturday, expecting to run errands like a production assistant aka the bottommost organism in the filmmaking food chain. But I ended up going through the scenes with our volunteer actors from secondary school! I just couldn’t resist the temptation to step up and act when I felt the acting could be improved. I think I was quite convincing acting as a gangleader because one actress said, “Next time you start a gang, call me okay!” Haha she’s so cute. Acting is so fun! Why didn’t I join the drama club back in school? (I acted in a minor role in JC but the experience was strangely unmemorable; 不堪回首，even.)
Ooh and my cameo part was done in one take! I secretly wanted to do it again but they felt it was fine, 很给面子. Our production crew was from the Catholic JC Film Sound Video Society, and I must say they were really professional.
Acting is so fun! Then again, the gangleader role had so much room for blatant acting. The director would probably tell me to go home if I tried more high-level (read: unMediacorpish), subtle roles with lots of grey area.
Who cares. Acting is so fun!
* I probably didn’t screw my writing test too badly as I was asked to go for an interview? Hurhur.
