So, I can't tell you what I was on set for.
But I can say that I was on set for a major TV show and it was amazing. Not the kind of amazing that happens when your like "Oh my god I'm working with such and such celebrity and they gave me this and that tidbit of amazing advice and we exchanged numbers after we shared a burger, the same burger, and we're doing it again tomorrow!"
Nope. I don't even have many pictures.
You see... there are times in ones life an actor lives for, and being on the set of major TV show is one of those days.
Its work. Its not glamorous. The days are long because you start early to catch the sun's light, and many things go wrong, schedules get messed up, there are a ton of people involved, budget to fit all these people into, transportation to figure out, locations to find etc etc etc
Its madness. Then you, as the actor, read the script, and have to figure out how you serve the story, even if it is one line.
Then you do the one line, over and over, in the context of the scene, for 5 hours, in bright lights, while the public watches, while horns honk, and alarms go off, and all the other hoopla of the city tries to throw you off your focus.
Then you have a scene with the person who is the "star", and you realize he is the real champ. He's been there since 530.
The PA who is making sure you're ok (even though you got there way later) has also been there since 530. But she's worried about YOUR well being.
The DP has a ridiculous tarantula looking attachment strapped to his body that somehow has a camera (this is a steadicam). By midday, he looks like his legs might buckle. He's doing this ALL day long, from 530 to 7pm.
Even in the middle of takes, random people would walk up to the "star" and attempt to give him a card. Meanwhile, the director is yelling, "Rolling!" and all the other things that let you know the random people should leave the "star" alone. He's used to it though.
Somehow, in the end, it turns into a beautiful, seamless piece of work. Its mind boggling. It takes 1-2 weeks to shoot ONE episode, by the way.
Its an experience I won't forget. Treat every webseries, student film, and Instagram sketch with the same importance until you get the chance to be in a trailer and do it every day, for real.
