The Story About Everything

March 17, 2010

Just came home from the best play I have ever seenPERIOD

It was about everything, and how can that work, and with only one guy on stage. I don’t know, but it really did. An incredible actor, he made me feel everything, in a very short amount of time. And everything happen, he walked through a wall, ran on the wall, got stuck on the wall, got his head inside a television, got run down by a car… Everything happen, he even forgot his lines, not a part of the play, but it worked out, cause it was so perfect everything else. And him forgetting his lines only made it more personal, cause suddenly we saw him as a person, stripped completely, butt naked, (not litterally, it wasn’t rated R). And for most parts my opinion about danish theater is not a very positive one, maybe it’s just the plays I’ve seen, but this one blew me away. I mean I’ve seen goos theater in Denmark, but man… I somehow hope they tape this one, or just keep the stage and the lines fresh in mind so I can go see it whenever I want to, also in twenty years time.

The play really inspired me for a film me and my friend has been talking about for quite some time now… It’s pretty much character driven, and I’ve got a pretty good feel one my character, I just don’t know if the director (my friend) sees it the same way, but it will be very interesting indeed. And can’t wait to act in front of a camera again and use the techniques I learned at NYFA.

It’s like I have the opening shot for the film in my head, eventhough I’m not the director (I’m gonna do a Eastwood at some point in my career) I wanna storyboard it out, cause I want the pictures to be really crisp. I have so many ideas for my character an for the film all in all. As you might’ve noticed I won’t reveal to much of the plot or my character, you’ll just have to wait and see…

I’ll begin to draw the opening shot now, so I have to go… It’s nice to come home and unload like this…!

All the best,

Lucas Alexander
