Show biz

Last Friday was a very wonderful day. I was able to be on camera. Our next door neighbor is in the entertainment industry and my dad's best friend. He needed a couple actors for a movie/ video thing, so he asked my little brother Cody(he is 8 years old). They(the film crew) started out at the Harbor and filmed Cody fishing and hanging out with his actor family. It was easy to see who the director was since he was wearing a directors trademark, a short-sleeved black shirt with glasses hanging off it. He was also the one shouting out orders and whatnot. After about two hours of baking in the sun watching Cody act, we could finally go home.
Later that day, my older brother Cameron was supposed to also be on camera but he had to back to school. So I was recruited in his place to be an extra. My job was to play basketball in the background. I'm a figure skater, not a basketball player unlike the other extra who was Cameron's good friend. Whenever I made a basket it was a big deal to me. Of course they got out the big camera's and such so it was a neat experience. And I will be getting paid, no idea when, but someday. It was really neat being on film.
