Is this the reel life or is this just fantasy?

Burnt Balls

Posted by Ruok On December - 10 - 2007

It was the third take when it happened. This time round, the cup of coffee that I was supposed to topple over the edge of the table, somehow managed to splashed its contents onto my groin area.

I could only hold out for as long as 2 seconds before whelping in pain and prancing up and down like my pants were on fire. Thankfully, the director had yelled “Cut!” by that time.

And that was how I scalded my balls for the first time during a shoot. I can just imagine the out-takes reel on this one. >.< Other than that, my first bona fide comedy role was concluded without much incident. It was good to do comedy again, and I think I did a pretty good job, considering my long absence from it. On a more technical note, I'm really putting my new found approaches to acting to good use. And I was surprised to see that I could marry the different techniques together... hmm maybe they aren't that different to begin with anyway. 😛 I guess I'm okay if this is the last project this year... I'm just glad to be able to finish the work year off on a high. Am really looking forward for a break, and though I thought I'll never say this, this includes acting as well. 😉
