Shooting in Milan

Behind the scenes of a movie

 

A couple of months ago, I’ve been contacted through CastingCallPro to know if I wanted to audition for some corporate videos.
I sent right away my video audition to the casting director & the client chose me! 🙂
So a couple of days ago I flew to Milan for a 2 days shooting.

I arrived at my hotel in Arcore, a small village in Milan’s suburbs, on Sunday evening

& had a relaxing night in order to be rested & ready for the shooting the morning after!

Early morning, the crew pick me up & took me to the studio where we shot all day long.

We shot on a chroma-key green screen, meaning that I was playing with no background (plain green background) & all the background elements will then be incrusted in post-production.
Actually they used a new technology so the background wasn’t really green, it was grey & there was a green light projected against it & on the camera the background appeared to be green.

I was also filming with no partner, I was alone & playing only my character without having the doctor in front of me.
And we were working with a prompter. I never used one before, I was a bit worried at the beginning, but actually it was ok.

The movies are training videos for medical students & I was playing a girl with an incurable brain tumor.

Despite the difficult subject, all the crew was super nice & I had a very good time!
After filming all day I felt the need to move & to change my mind though; I saw there was a big park not far from my hotel, so I went for a 40 minutes run. It felt so good!

The park, Villa Borromeo d’Adda, was beautiful & there were so many people running & exercising.
Running is not the sport I like the most, but I’m happy I started it as it’s something I can easily do everywhere.

On my way back, I ordered a pizza – I was in Italy after all! – & watched an episode of Mistresses.

Before going to bed early to be ready for the second & last day of shooting!
That I attacked after some pancakes & fruits, not the most Italian breakfast – nor the lightest one ;p – but I can’t say no to pancakes 😉

Than back in the studio to film…

As we finished earlier & the company I was working for has got a big French client, they also filmed a video audition of me in French 🙂
So hopefully we’ll work together again! *fingers crossed*.
And after those 2 rewarding & absorbing days, it was yet time to go back home; sad that the filming was over, but happy to find back my love <3
