I was helping out my friend that is in Broadcasting on a video she needed. I had the role of the jealous girlfriend; my friend was my pretend boyfriend. The script goes like this: we had a fight, so he decided to go out with his buddy to a club and dance with some random girl. But then I come in and get in a small fight and at the end we end up once again together. It’s a really plain story but what makes it funny or more attention grabbing, is the songs that pop out when we talk. I don’t know if some have heard or seen the videos in YouTube called “songs in life”. The videos point is the songs appearing when they say a line from a song, but instead of talking, the song actually comes out. It’s not really easy to explain but we kind of did the same thing but instead we changed the songs and the story. At first it wasn’t very easy for me. One-in not really good with memorizing things and second-I don’t act. So it kind of got stressing for me and the director, but after a day of repeating the lines over and over I did a pretty good job. I liked the idea of playing someone you’re not for a while. Being in a whole different world, having the opportunity to change yourself and become a different you. Dreaming while you’re awake is kind of what acting made me feel. But right now this is nowhere in my life plans. I want to become someone very different to an actress. But if I had the chance or the experience ill love to become one.
