The Actor's Mom

The craziest job ever.

Notes, notes…

So we’re doing a student film, the kid plays the lead but there are other kids in supporting roles. At some point, the director asks us moms if we could do background in a scene. We are all sitting there, facing the kids, with the camera behind us. The camera rolls, cut. One of the moms starts telling her kid “don’t do this, don’t do that, do it like this, more like that…” I was mute, mortified. I was looking at the ground, probably looking for a hole to crawl into. The director didn’t say a thing, didn’t do a thing, just being the nicest guy.

It didn’t end there. In the next scene she was giving notes to the director. I kid you not. I just prayed for it to be over.

What would you do?

    Someone needs to talk top “note mom”. It’s only a matter of time before her kid will never get called in again. As a a casting director with a very high tolerance level, this would put me way over the edge way fast.

    Oops, that should read “talk to”
