Cool Hi ya, Tim.

What is a typical day for you on a movie set? Do you have weird hours or does it depend on the shooting schedule? Is this usually how a movie is made according to the actors? I figure the movie is not shot in sequence but in availability of: sound stages, actors, directors, local location availability, etc.

Just curious how you actors pull off the "magic" that is a Movie.

Oh, do you have any say on the creativity of the movie or are you just suppose to supply the character you were contracted for?

Later,

Rob Cool

ps. I probably should watch "discovery channel" on how movies are made rather than bother you. Sorry. Embarassed

In that same vein, my fascination/intrigue with motion pictures is the actor's/actresses's on- screen gestures. Probably started during the silent film era. Is the motion picture body language used to keep the actor/actress focused on their scene, just a mechanical way of doing scenes, or are they really conveying non-verbal expressions and statements to the audience? Even the slightest on screen body movement in front of the camera supposedly 'means', or conveys something.

It's pretty much an off topic interest that Question I've always been curious about it.

My movie workday begins at whatever call time the production needs- sometimes 6am (or 3am if I am Santa, make-up and all that). We usually work six-day weeks, 12-hour days. The crew works at a fanatic pace while the artist spends much of his time waiting to work. I have never shot in sequence. The schedule is designed to make best use of weather and location and all the availabilities of many related departments.
It is a real circus on a set, so much happening all the time, and yet long periods of setting up and waiting.
