The Reality

One of the challenges in portraying a role is getting into character. That means, forgetting one’s real personality and channeling a new self that is dictated by the scene. Acting also requires tuning out of the immediate environment and pretending that the location is real. Thus, to tune out means to not allow anything to distract the delivery of dialogue.

During a day that seemed to be the usual grind for the production team, Creative Personality (CP) could not seem to memorize his lines and get into the groove. The scene was going to be intense and he was getting bothered that he could not focus. As CP tried to channel his attention to the script, children’s voices and screams continued to fill the air. CP thought the environment was too noisy, as the location was in a school. He closed the windows of the holding area and tried to filter out the noise. It was useless.

CP looked for a production assistant to give instructions to inform the kids making the noise to tone down. However, no one was around and CP took it upon himself to search for the room where the noise was coming from. CP was shocked and irritated to see the kids moving about and talking on top of their voices. Although The Teacher (TT) was around, CP thought TT was not doing anything to discipline the class.

CP asked if he could talk to TT, who later stepped out of the room. CP introduced himself as an actor from a certain network and asked if TT could keep the kids quiet. He even reprimanded TT for not keeping the discipline among the kids. TT listened until CP was done. Then, TT said that the kids in the class are special and they will not adjust for him. Further, TT added that CP’s team came over to their site and if he cannot stand the situation of the school, he could leave.  

Not knowing how to feel, CP was embarrassed at what he had done. Later, a production head found out about the incident and had to tell CA not to feel too entitled as an actor. The production team had to apologize to TT for the attitude of CP.

    5. Pero sana tinanong niya muna kung bakit maingay yung mga bata hindi yung aawayin niya agad yung teacher nila.

  4. If CP asked the teacher in a respectful manner, then it's all good. After all, if CP is not aware beforehand that those were special kids, then it's not to his discredit if he just wanted a quiet space to focus.

  7. The production should have informed the actor or give proper briefing before the shooting its their responsibility in the first place.
