Life as Actress: Waiting

Waiting (4)

„They pay me for waiting – the acting is for free.“ This says it all. One lesson I had to learn on a movie-set is to be patient and

 just wait (no joking, sometimes you’ve to wait 6 hours till your first scene). Not my greatest strength since I’m a little whirlwind. 

That’s why I started to spy on my colleagues and find out how they … well …. wait. I wanted to share my obervations with you,

 I hope you like it! what actors & crewmembers do while they are waiting:

I love these pictures, it’s pretty much a documentary about waiting people. Cool idea. (And a smart idea as well, since photographing makes the waiting a little less boring, I guess.)

Danke für diese tollen Blick hinter die Kulissen.

I love this post! Such interesting photos, where somehow you see the character, but also a whole lot of the actor behind it. Fantastic!!

I think that waiting is a very inspiring time…for all sort of things, but I’m very impatient by nature…
Great post, x

Love this post & the documentary kind of feel it has. I’ve always enjoyed people watching, it’s so interesting to see how others behave! These photos are beautifully shot too, and I love that even though they’re the actors just waiting so much character still shines through.

Your portrait photography is so amazing, you should post more of it! I was also wondering, are there any films or series of yours online? I’d love to see you “in motion” :) x
