Abstract/Artist Statement

I will be showing my film, “Table Read,” which is a comedy about how actors communicate and work together when first starting on a project. The film is made to show what actors go through during preparation for a part and the struggle they face when confronted by something negative happening in their lives. The movie was inspired by two major ideas that are commonly held in society. The first idea is that acting is something someone can just “pick up” easily. As such, actors are often not respected for their art. Secondly, when people are called upon to do doing something uncomfortable they “turtle in” on their emotions. When the audience is watching the movie I hope that they are able to perhaps draw parallels to their own lives, but if not, then I hope they can learn something about the world while having a laugh.
