National Polish Filmschool presents
Krysia - could you bring me a coffee?
Espresso, two cubes of sugar. Thanks.
How is it going Stas?
Right side is fine...
...but I need one more lamp on the left. It's too dark.
Attention please! I've got some facts for you:
There's 160 people on the list. We'll be calling them alphabetically.
Everything according to plan.
And I would like everybody to...
Could you please stop recording me?
I'm not recording.
I can see the flashing light. Stop fooling around and...
It's recording! Don't touch it!
I'm just tightening the tripod.
It's recording so leave it! Call next person.
Number eight! Number eight!
Hello.
Stand in front of the camera.
- Good morning. - Mornin'
- Right in the center, that's right. - Thank you.
Please introduce yourself.
I'm Little Red Riding Hood.
- Little Red... - Yeah... Should I add something more?
"Little Red Riding Hood"... But do you have any last name?
"Hood".
- That's my last name. - Right.
Introduce yourself.
I'm Yunosuke Takamagahara.
Could you repeat that?
Krystyna.
- "Krystyna"? - Yes.
You're a mermaid, right?
You bet. I'm a real Warsaw Mermaid!
Warsaw? Then why do you speak so strangely?
Because I'm a Pole. I'm from Silesia!
My job is in Warsaw, but my dialect is my own!
My name's Dopey.
Dopey from the "Snow White"?
It seems so.
Bogdan.
- "Bogdan"? - Yeah, I'm pretty sure of that.
Any last name?
Sure.
I've got last name...
Bogdan...
...Nowak.
- "Bogdan Nowak"? - Indeed.
Where are you from?
From the neighborhood of...
I mean from the neighborhood.
So you are Bogdan Nowak from the neighborhood.
Introduce yourself.
Can I charge myself a bit first?
- Right here. - Go on.There's a free socket.
That's better. We can proceed.
Introduce yourself.
My name is Damian.
"Damian"?
What brought you here today?
I want to check if I can...
You know - in front of the people...
And I want to show you few things.
I heard that there will be a casting.
I was just passing by and...
Tourists are wandering around, shoting photos
but nobody ever made a movie with me, so here I am.
Well, I've got a kind of "screen pressure".
And I would like to play some role, yet I'm not sure if can handle it...
WHAT ARE YOU INTERESTED IN?
Do I have to be interested in anything to become an actor?
What are you interested in?
Well - being forced by my mom I spend most of the time visiting my grandma.
Also there are some pranks with the Wolf.
I like to stare at the clouds and imagine things based on the cloud's shapes.
And I tell people that I can tell fortunes from those shapes.
What are you interested in?
Manga!
Manga, samurai, history of Japan,...
...and culture.
- Japanese culture? - Yes, yes, yes!
Generally I'm interested in parties, discos...
but I think about my future a lot, about my graduation and stuff.
WHY DO YOU THINK YOU WILL BE AGOOD ACTOR?
Oh, come on! Just look at me and stop asking silly questions!
I didn't attend to any acting school...
...so I'm kind of a fresh guy.
I think I'm made for this. You won't get a better shot.
I'm natural and casual...
I'm a quick learner!
I believe it's my passion.
WHAT MOVIE WOULD YOU LIKE TO STAR IN?
Adventure movie.
I would like to play in zombie horror.
Samurai movie!
Pulp Fiction!
I like period films very much.
Maybe horror but one with surreal elements...
Psychological thriller - something like that.
Do you have your favorite zombie horror?
Yes - "Zombie Flesh Eaters".
So maybe you also have your favorite scene?
- Yes. - Can you present that scene?
There was a very...
...well-shaped pirate.
The scene in which she's dancing. I would like to dance like her.
Just like Mia, but I would need dark hair.
There are wigs - it's simple as that!
So - a woman is in the house...
She's alone, she's just taken shower and...
Then she starts to hear some rumble outside...
...and she's trying to stop zombie from geting into the house.
Scene with the axe. Definitely.
I find it very convincing.
I prefer old kinds of clothing.
Laces, some frills...
...wigs and that kind of things.
...and he drags her hair
and all the splinters are plunging in her eyes.
So she is not coping with the zombie very well.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE MUSIC?
What's your favorite music?
Inevitably - classical music.
Maybe it not fits period movies and costumes very well
but I like electro dance.
I like Japanese Pop.
So I like Bach, Beethoven...
Not those workers from mines or ironworks.
Disco Polo.
Just some cool tracks for partying.
Like a Garden Gnomes Dance. I like it very much.
You can do it on the street on a square dance floor.
Wanna see a piece of Gnomes Dance?
It has a clear rhythm, and makes everybody feel good.
WHAT BOOK HAVE YOU READ RECENTLY?
Generally I like sci-fi books.
They are pulling me away from my routin,
from wandering with my basket to my grandma.
Have I read anything recently?
Some kind of "user manual".
Oh yes! Phone's manual!
- Mobile phone? - Of course.
The dwarf is up-to-date.
I read a guide book:
"How to look good naked?"
Because you see - mermaids are topless most of the time.
I haven't got much time recently.
But I have some plans for the future.
I'll read those big shots from the top shelf.
TELL A JOKE
How do we say "tent" in japanese?
There was a Pole, Russian and German...
The Devil came and told them...
...to show what they are capable of.
Pole couldn't do anythig so the German won instantly...
"Need-no-hou-su".
...so the German said that he'll pass in that case...
Husband and wife are eating dinner together.
Suddenly wife pour a soup on her skirt and yell: - I look like a pig!
And husband said: -Yeah. And you even poured a soup on yourself.
So she came to Pole and...
They all had a kind of... The Pole made a bad choice...
They all chose wisely. Only Pole was unwise.
WHERE WILL YOU BE 10 YEARS FROM NOW?
I wonder if my grandma will be still alive.
Anywhere but a junkyard.
In the biggest cinemas of course. Muliplexes.
With great amount of audience.
Same place of course.
We're not getting old cause we're statues.
We only get some renovations once in a while from the art students.
They provide us a short period of maintenance.
It will be either Broadway, Hollywood or Tokio.
Well of course - I plan to get some job in the future
I'm not greedy - I don't want to work in the government right away.
But a "head of housing co-operative" position would be nice.
Maybe my career will steer in that direction.
I've got many ideas and I want to check if I can cope on other fields.
DESERT ISLAND
If you would land on a desert island...
- ...what would you do? - Without a single human being on it?
I can't imagine that.
But on the other hand...
I could do something for myself then.
I would try to build some shelter
cause I hate when it rains on my head.
I would die.
I would commit seppuku.
I would try to find some food.
I would definitely try to survive and contact my family.
I'm not sure.
WHAT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN YOUR LIFE?
Love.
Support so I could never feel lonely.
To cheer up a bit, right?
To have your own place to live and your duties.
It's obvious - money.
Some cool clothes.
I like to smell nice, too.
ACTING FOR ME IS ... (?)
Please finish the sentence:
"Acting for me is..."
...all my life!
...a new experience.
...a big, cool party!
...a vocation.
...a self-expression.
...everything.
It's my whole world.
I APPRECIATE MYSELF BECAUSE... (?)
...because I'm a straightforward person.
...because I'm trouble-free,
I'm helpful to some people,
I'm not bringing them any trouble.
...because I'm direct and friendly to the whole world.
...beacause I'm emotional.
...because I'm totally different than all the others.
IF I WOULD WIN THE LOTTERY... (?)
... I would be extremely glad.
... I would go to claim my prize!
Well, I wouldn't want to share this money with anybody.
It's not hard to achieve if you know how lottery system works.
I would be able to live my life exactly like I want.
And I want to live my life without any worries.
I would decide with my family what to do with this money.
I mean with forrester and others.
Okey!
- Thanks for signing up and for your presence. - You're welcome.
- Can I say something frankly? - Sure, go on.
I'm very glad that I could come here today.
I thought that...
...that I won't be treated seriously.
But the atmosphere here is priceless.
All of you deserved a big arigato from the bottom of my heart.
If I could speak the languages of angels...
...but didn't love others, I would be nobody.
Thank you. I'm a bit exhausted already.
I'm expecting a call from you.
That's what you always say, right? "We will call you soon!"
Thank you sincerely for listening to me...
...and I believe in your goodwill because I'll do my best.
