Filming Locations

posted in: Entertainment, Film, News, Short Film | 0

I will go out again today, searching for the right filming locations still. Even though it’s just a 10-minute long film, I just want to create a unique film experience. I can’t reveal too much. I just know, it’s going to be an exciting film in many ways. At least, in my opinion. It’s my first film, so I want to play with possibility as much as I can. London is a big capital and has many hidden, beautiful places which I have yet to discover. I am sure to find some interesting settings for my short film. I have not had breakfast, yet. I am so enthusiastic about my film making project that as soon as I wake up, I start working on it straight away daily. Until I get very hungry, I stop to eat. My film could be screened in time for Christmas, which would be good. Now, I will have my breakfast. Then I’m on my way!

Possible Feature Film

posted in: Entertainment, Film, News, Short Film | 0

I have been working on my short film’s screenplay all day long, revising, adding and removing something, and so on. I’ve just finished it now, actually, only because I’m hungry. I forgot to eat something. I just had breakfast as soon as I stood up, and nothing else till now. So, time to stop, relax, eat, and watch some films. Then, I will continue to work with it tomorrow. I’m done for today. I like it so far. I want to make a short film. But then, I got carried away when writing the plot outline and wrote it for a full-length film instead of a short film. So, I have to take a lot out to make it a short film. But, the good thing is that I then have two scripts & films to make if I choose to shoot 2 movies: A short film and a feature film of the same story. If this short film turns out well I will, possibly, make a feature film version of it as well. So, making a short film first will test the story, my screenwriter skills, my ability to make movies, and more. It looks promising so far. I like the plot. The question is how to turn it into film that attracts audiences? My first short film is the key to all my questions and doubts. I will not know all these answers before I have made the film, people have watched, commented, reviewed, and so forth. It’s exciting to see how people will react to it? Like it or hate it? Or nothing at all.

And an another good thing for actors is that I may use the same set of artists again in my feature film version.

My Upcoming Short Film: Love & Fall

posted in: Film, News, Short Film | 0

My short film has now its own official page on IMDb, Love & Fall. Tonight, I will add plot outline, plot summaries, synopsis, etc. There’s only one cast member at the moment which is me 😛 More cast & crew to be added later on when I have found the actors and we have finished shooting the film. I’m so excited now! Last night, I worked on my film until 3am. And I reckon, it’s gonna be the same today again. For me, if I’m doing something I really love time doesn’t exist, or, it just stands still. I will start adding plot, synopsis, and more to my film page on IMDb now. Then, I will go through new applications again tonight. My film starts to shape now. Then tomorrow morning, I might make some more jewelry and add them to my site.

Below is a sneak peek of my upcoming short film, Love & Fall. More info on my film page on IMDb: Love & Fall (2017).

Making Film With No Crew

posted in: Entertainment, Film, News | 0

That’s right. It’s me, Making Film With No Crew. It’s just a 10-minute short film. But, there’s a lot going on behind the scenes, actually. And it’s only me to take care of all these. It can be very challenging. But, I like challenges. So, it’s good enough for me. I do have lots of applications coming in regarding my short film. So, I will spend tonight going through them. The people I have shortlisted also have to send in self-taping auditions. And I will spend the weekend watching them instead. Everything looks good so far. I didn’t expect to get that many interests in the project. There are actors who apply for all roles. Therefore, I think, I have got enough people now. The next step is just to start shortlisting people. I can’t wait to get the camera rolling!

I try to add my products bit by bit every day. I have lots of items to add to my site. I can’t add them all at once. I need to work on my film project as well. So, at least I have added something daily, then it should be good enough. I like making jewelry, especially bohemian style. So, I have to continue with it. I also wear all of my products. I make for sale and for myself. So, I only make what I really like to wear myself. I spend time crafting each jewellery with care & love. The same with screenplay. I just want to add that extra care and passion into it.



Casting Call

posted in: Acting, Entertainment, Film, News | 0

Hello,

I am in the process of making my first short film about love & sorrow. I am looking for 3 actors:

Gerwyn (male) – 25 -35 years old – Lead actor speaking role (Caucasian, English or American accent preferably, but not essential).

Medium build & tall or taller.

He is well-considerate, kind, loving & caring, romantic, if he could play a guitar and had his own guitar would be a bonus.

Tolbert (male) – 27 35 years old – Supporting role, speaking part (Caucasian, English or American accent preferably, but not essential).

Medium build & tall or taller.

He is violent, possessive, controlling, alcoholic, but deep down he’s very insecure and vulnerable.

Candy (female) – 25 -35 years old – Supporting role, Danish speaking with speaking role (any ethnicity and look).

She’s worrisome, protective, a mother figure.

She is a friend of the lead actress.

I am an actress myself. And I will play the lead actress in this film as well. Have a look at my profile on IMDb: Buppha Witt

I’m going to shoot the film with my smartphone as an experiment. And I might submit my short film to various film festivals as well. It’s a one day shoot only. And it only takes about a few hours. I plan to shoot the film on Monday 20 this month, or as soon as I have found all actors.

No food provided since it only takes about 2-3 hours to film. But travel expenses max £10 provided, a copy of the project, and a credit on IMDb. We will be filming in central London. So, I’m looking for London based actors only. And we may work together again on future projects since I’m going to produce more short and feature films in the future.

If interested, please email me with your recent headshot and CV to actor@buppha.com. Thanks.

Shoot Some More Scenes Today

posted in: Entertainment, Film, News | 0

Today, I stand up early to start working on my films. I should get up earlier than this. I think tomorrow, I should wake up at 4am or 5am. I might go out and shoot some scenes soon. The earlier I go out, the better. I don’t want to get people in my scenes since I don’t pay them, or get the permission from them to film them. So, I must start early, to avoid people. It’s still dark outside. It’s getting dim early now. We are almost in winter now. We might even have snow this year as well. If I go out now, by the time I get to the locations where I want to shoot my film, the darkness will disappear by that time. So, I might get ready to go out now. I always feel productive and active in the morning. From now on, I should start getting up early – as early as possible. I will create some posts looking for actors first. Then I will heading out. Then by the time I get home again, some people might have already applied for it. I want this to be completed as soon as possible. So, I must try to get it done quick. Hopefully, I could finish my first short film this week.

I love this song “Blue Valentine” from Tom Waits. It’s so calm & relaxing to listen to in the morning along with a cup of good coffee. My creativity really begins to flow when I listen to his music, especially at quiet moments like this.

Working on my Script

posted in: Entertainment, News | 0

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.

filmmaker

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.

My New Film

posted in: Acting, Entertainment, Film | 0

I’m going to start shooting my new film from tomorrow. I will start with the scenes that are only me in it first. Then, when I have completed my script I will start looking for other actors, and start shooting other scenes with more characters later on. I just have to get it started as soon as possible. I don’t care about people will like it or not, whether or not it’s gonna be good, and so on. The most important thing is to get started! If I spend too much time thinking about it’s not gonna be good, people’re not gonna like it, it has to be perfect, and so forth, I might not gonna get it made at all.

Therefore, I am glad that I have stumbled upon this inspirational quote by Andy Warhol:

Don’t think about making art, just get it done.  Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it.  While they are deciding, make even more art.

I will play the main actor. So, whatever scenes I can start shooting first without others I will do it. There’s no time to waste from this moment on. I will get to work as a screenwriter tonight. Then tomorrow, I will start filming. The quote above really wakes me up. It tells me to just do it! If I have not made any film yet how do I know it’s gonna be good or bad? So, I shall have no fear to try. It’s my own fear and the thought of failure that put me off, actually. I have got rid of them after I have read the quote above. Thank goodness! I feel so free now since I no longer care what people will think of my art. Let’s do it!

Different Characters

posted in: Acting, Entertainment | 0

I have created a video with me playing different characters. As an actor, I should be able to perform various roles. So, I have to try to play how it will turn out. I will make more videos with varied roles in the future. So, this one was just a test. It’s also a good way to find out which character suits me best. I woke up with great energy today because I am going to try to complete my film as much as I can today. I so look forward to finishing it as soon as I possibly can. The end result is waiting for me on the other end. I have just to find my way to get there FAST. Making and acting in films is fun. I just love it! I might make another video already today. What’s going to be, I don’t know yet. I just feel in the mood to do so. I feel so active and productive in the morning. I feel, I can accomplish anything in the morning. That’s why I love standing up early. It’s the time when my enthusiasm is at its peak. So, I have to utilize it as quickly as I can before it begins to subside as the day goes by.
