This past Saturday, I acted in a zombie movie! I played "tall zombie," a zombie that was infected while playing basketball. In my scene, I backed a 5th grader into a corner as his friend panced me, tripped me, and then proceeded to bludgeon my skull with a crowbar. The scene was a lot of fun to shoot, and I found it very amusing that the kid with the crowbar could barely lift it over his head. Ah the magic of Final Cut Pro.
Anyway, we shot it in an unfinished wing of an old-folks home. When I first walked onto the set, I saw an elderly woman with lots of makeup on, and assumed she was in the movie. She started talking to me, and was very sweet, but after she asked me if I was going to drive her to the train station to visit her uncle, I realized something was wrong. Turns out her name was Eleanor, and she was a resident (with Dementia.)
Overall, it was a fun day, and I'll be sure to post some clips when the film is developed (the director said he'd send me my scene.)
