I haven’t done a ton of student films. I try not to spread myself too thin. Emphasis on the “try.”
But I did one this weekend. And I have to say, it’s pretty fun. You get professional level equipment. You get to practice being on set. You get to practice a lot of the “hurry up and wait” mentality that permeates showbiz. You get to practice hitting your mark and saying your lines over and over again with the same intention. You get better at your craft, even if it’s just for a student film.
But the bestest part of all? You get to have your hair and makeup done.
Oh and you get food.
