Really deep...

The Movie that is Life

“Picture is up!”… “Action!”… “Cut!” … “Take two”… “aaaand action!” … “Cut-cuut-Cut!” … This is a representation of what goes on in the different scenes of the movie. I’m on scene 22 and counting. Life is the greatest mission…

The action between the two individuals happens and we’re on our way. The signs begin to show and after nine months we’re ready. Just before we arrive, “picture is up!” is called out. The clapperboard is slapped shut; we are here. We set out on the mission immediately. The director takes charge and we’re on play. “Action!” We move and get into the flow and the plot begins to take shape. We continue until we get off script…

“Cut!” We’re stopped before we can go any further. We take some time out to take some words from the director and other cast mates. These words become a point of reference though sometimes the playback speed might be really high and you may end up missing some action…

We go back again and start filming. “Take two!” We act accordingly and the storyline begins to develop. Our character starts being recognizable. We stay on script for quite some time and everything else remains silent. ‘Cut’ happens to be called out again…

We take a look at the dailies this time round so as to try and understand what has been happening. After the break we start from where we left off. We continue playing out the different scenes of the movie; the highs-the lows, the ups and downs, the beautiful and the ugly, the love and the hate… All of these feelings and reactions, they make the movie. We find ourselves in these different locations and the sets there…

Life is a movie. I want those high reviews for my movie. We need to be top of the box office. The act will go on until “it’s a wrap!” is called out…
