Tupac had a party on a holographic Yacht…And I missed it! L
The Cannes Film Festival is one of the busiest events of the year. At any time at the festival there can be up to 50 events happening at once, from screenings to celebrity sightings, to break out musical numbers and of course elaborate parties. Because there is so much going on your always feeling like you’re missing something. For instance a typical day at Cannes you may want to check out a screening, attend a seminar, check your email at the American pavilion and have drinks at the pub with your friends. Now this is a great day but while you were doing this there were tickets released for tonight’s premiere, Jaws is being screened on the beach, Kanye and Kim walk past on their way to Diddy’s yacht. Then while you’re sleeping Tupac is having a party that you don’t need an invite to get into. The worse feeling is waking up and hearing the new Pac song about his party from the night before and you weren’t there. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C56slKhtiNw) I feel like I have been as many places as I could while here but I still feel like I’m missing stuff. My only solitude to missing these events would be that I was meeting someone that could potentially further my career, but man I would have loved to be in that holographic Pac party.
Well, well, well we have completed another semester here at SCA, and we will never have that time back. We will never not know what this class is like, we will never forget the butt shot in Elle’s scene, and we will never look at the inner workings of a scene the same way again. Coming into this class I understood that the truth of the scene would be lead to comedy, but what I didn’t realize was to the extent of the truth. The specifics, not using broad terms in direction but saying exactly what your actor needs to hear to make the proper adjustment. Seeing how a small mistake or not catching a minor detail will throw an entire performance off kilter. Something as small as not having the right prop, having your character walk through the wrong door, not catching a habit that your actor has picked up. All of these small factors really affect the direction your scene takes, and how your audience perceives the work. Paying attention to these details is something that we all became more aware of as the semester unfolded and hopefully get better at as the class goes on. Along with the great discussions and the great laughs we had over the semester I will never forget that we learned about the details!
