The laptop had open browser windows scattered about it’s screen. I was on Craigslist, Mandy, and various other talent websites looking for actors to help out with the upcoming project that I needed to get done in time for the Cinecoup Film Accelerator. There was about 2 weeks left at this point.
Having just recovered from a bout with a bad sickness, I was slightly flustered thinking about the task that lay ahead of me. I had been writing and brainstorming the trailer itself for weeks, so I was confident I knew what it was going to look like. The major factor that was stopping me from actually finishing it, was the lack of actors.
Many of the actors aren’t credited in their respective Cinecoup trailers. Especially because most of them aren’t part of the three member filmmaking team. They never really allot space that allowed the projects to enter that kind of information on the website sadly. ( I partly feel responsible thinking back on it now because I should have squeezed them into the written synopsis, but again, the website gave us a very limited amount of space to write in. )
What we wanted to do here, is to give them a big big big shout out and thank you/them for putting time aside on 2 days to show up and make this trailer a reality. It was a fun day of shooting, and it was great getting to know them.
It’s thanks to them that Memoria is what it is right now, and it is thanks to them that Memoria is growing into something big, getting quite a bit of attention, earning some of the highest ratings in the competition and receiving spectacular feedback amongst all the other Cinecoup trailers across Canada
I hope everyone gives a round of applause to the actors that made it happen.
