I will complete my script tonight, hopefully. Then, I will watch and edit the scenes I have already shot. Then I will post on several sites looking for actors tonight as well. And tomorrow, I might go out and shoot some more scenes. I am going to make 2 short films at the same time. So, it’s quite interesting how they will turn out. And also, this will be my first time working with other actors as a screenwriter, director, producer, etc.
Well maybe not quite, I had done similar roles before when I was a student at Copenhagen Technical College in 2004, studying Film & TV production. We did make some student films and hired some actors to be in our films. So, I did work behind the scenes before to produce films. But that was many years ago. So now, I have to start all over again. I feel like coming home. It’s funny enough, I find myself going back where it all began again. But that’s the way it is. You can’t start in film industry and not be tempted to explore different fields within it. Like me, I started as a filmmaker, then actress, then back to filmmaker again. But this time, as a filmmaker, screenwriter, producer, director, and actor.
It’s typical that many actors turn screenwriters, film producers, directors, and similar, themselves at some point. It’s almost difficult to avoid when you are already in the entertainment industry and passionate about Film & TV. Some even turn musicians or vice versa. Think about Mark Wahlberg, he started as a musician who turned actor. I remember listening to his music in the early 90’s. I have also watched his low budget movies when he first just started out as an actor. Then when I watch his big budget movies later on, I often ask myself, still: Is this the same guy? So, it’s just possible.
