How I Change Over Time

posted in: Acting, Entertainment | 0

When I look at my photos from all the jobs I have done I see how I change over time. Each job gives me different look and personality, depending on the outfits and accessories I wear as well. It’s amazing how apparel and jewelry transform people. Sometimes, I look very old, sometimes young & trendy, sometimes serious, sometimes funny, sometimes I look like ME. So today, I will share some images of me which each of them I looked, completely, like a different person:

1. The Sun Newspaper Photoshoot –

Sofia Vergara’s Recreation Shoot 2017

This was my own dress. But, I did not do the makeup. Shooting for The Sun, they, of course, provided the makeup artist.


2. Filming “My Dinner with Hervé” 2017

My Dinner with Hervé

This was not the actual outfit I wore during filming. We were in the holding area between takes.


3. Filming Boots Commercial Summer 2017

My own outfit.


4. COOP Christmas Commercial 2016

ASDA Christmas commercial 2016

This one was my own outfit as well. This advert did not show in UK. It only showed in Eastern Europe, I think.


5. Peacock Christmas Commercial 2016

This one the costume team dressed me. I had to wear clothes from Peacock, after all.


6. Filming “The Anomaly” in 2013

My own costume in this one. I had a very long hair back then. I miss my long hair, actually. I’m used to long hair. I have to grow my hair long again.


7. Filming “EastEnders” Summer 2017

My own outfit.


8. Filming “Hampstead” Summer 2016

My own outfit.


9. Filming “Swimming With Men” Summer 2017

My own outfit.

Possible Feature Film

posted in: Entertainment, Film, News | 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 (2017)

posted in: Entertainment, Film, News | 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, Fashion, Film, Lifestyle, 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 | 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: Acting, Entertainment | 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.

Shooting Scenes For my Short Films

posted in: Entertainment, Fashion, Film, Lifestyle | 0

Some scenes for my short films have already been shot today. What an accomplishment! I’m gonna make 2 short films simultaneously. I have only filmed some parts for one of them. I wanted to shoot some segments for another film as well today. But then, the time was getting late. I wanted to shoot a morning scene for another film. So, I have to shoot it another day instead. But, I have at least shot some sequences of one of the films. So, I have gotten something done today anyway. And that’s a good thing. I am making progress now.

I have even made some necklaces as well, to sell on my website, this blog, which will be available on my site soon. So, I have achieved lots of things today. It’s been a good day, indeed.

Tomorrow, I will work on set again. I have already packed, taken shower, checked time travel, set my alarm clock on, and so on. I am so ready. I like packing in advance. So, I am sure that I have plenty of time to pack, and that I have everything I need with me. If I began to pack in a hurry because I had not much time to pack such as just before heading out, getting up late I would forget something. That’s for sure. It did happen before. I have now learned, being well-prepared is the key in any job, to avoid mistakes as much as I can.

Christmas in London

posted in: Entertainment, Film, Lifestyle, Travel | 0

I just got home. The Christmas lights are all over London now. They look magical and imaginative. So many people were in town today, looking for presents for their loved ones, families, friends, and themselves. People were in high spirits. I wish people’re like this every day.

I have already finished my script. Actually, I have completed it a long time ago. But, I wasn’t sure about I want to use it. I have written many short stories, in fact. But, I didn’t think they are good enough to make short films out of it. Then, after I read this inspirational quote it dawned on me that I was wrong all along. I have wasted my time for several months waiting to create the perfect story. And therefore, I have not made my own films yet. And I could continue to wait, perhaps, for months or even years to come if I hadn’t discovered this quote. Sometimes, a quote, word, things you see, imagination, dreams, and so on, can really inspire you and make you create incredible art out of the blue.

I will polish the story I’m going to use tonight or tomorrow. Then I will start shooting some scenes already tomorrow. I feel so happy now. My short film could be finalized as soon as next week!
