I hadn't been on set for a while, so shooting this scene from G.I. was such fun! Encouraged by our wonderful acting coach John Homa, we got the ball rolling and put together a small production, to film this short.
I got to play an intelligent, authoritative, spiteful, strong Character. A Psychiatrist with obvious issues herself. I mean… there is really no need to be so harsh with a patient. Not that I can't be like that in the real world, you know a complete Bitch, but that is not generally my nature. So I love it when a character is unlike me, for it allows me to explore new layers and it is most certainly a form of escapism. Isn't that what acting is all about? Isn't that what most actors love about acting. We were really happy with the results and the feedback so far has been very positive.
I'd like to give thanks to my scene partner Samm Wiechec, the Director: Luca Brinciotti, the D.O.P.: Justin Knodle as well as Ryan Lopez, Andrew Massersmith, Cori Elwood, Roy Sun, Denise Khumalo, Austin Gray, Trang Ada Tring, and Jordan Spark for their hard work and expertise. I hope to work together on other projects very soon. Alex Cartañá xo
