Week before when i "hunting" some gifts at ToyRyus @ Bangsar Village, two malay young ladies approach me, and give me a flyer, asking me how old is my boys, i am a bit puzzle and still thinking what this two ladies want. They explain to me, they are from Chili Pepper Film House, they are looking for boys who is age from 3-6 ,able to speak, asian look, no camera shy, to participate in the advertisement for Enfagrow.
I told her i will think about it (knowing that my boys won't get it). After thinking for few days, i said to myself why not i just sent them for casting, at least give them a chance to try and gain some experience, it will be quite fun. ( Not that i so desperate want to become a "sin ma") hahahhahahahahha
Since i still got some annual leave to clear, i decide to take half day leave on Wednesday and bring them to cast. Reach there, my boys are the only two for casting on that day (they give a week time for parent who wish to bring the kids over for casting). At first my boys still behave a bit, after she saw the lady who set up the camera, they start their "monkeying", Cruz facing the camera do all the funny faces, monster faces, while Fearles stand behind the camera and giggle non stop. I really scare my two boys knocked the camera down.
I ask Fearles to go first but Cruz said he want to go first. Cruz didn't feel shy at all in front of the camera, he cannot stand still, walk front walk back, turn here and there. The lady who cast them got a hard time to ask Cruz to stand still. Then the lady ask some questions,
What is your name? Cruz Lee (suppose to answer as My name is Cruz Lee)
How old are you? 4 years old ( suppose to answer as I am 4 years old)
What is your favourite food? MCD!!
What is your favourite colour? Black colour
What is your favourite cartoon? Batman!!
After that, the lady ask Cruz to do some face expression, happy face, angry face, sad face and shock face. hahahhahah..he manage to do a few, but to me all looks like happy face! Then, Cruz has to follow the lady read some script and with action, (story is about to make pumpkin soup)..Cruz can follow what the lady said and do with action, but he talk too soft, so the lady have to take a few re-take. Till the last, Cruz got no patient, he just stand there, when the lady said can do one more last time?? He shake his head and said "NO"! *pengsan*!!
Fearles turn...he got the same questions and have to do all the same.
What is your name? Fearles Lee (again, suppose to answer - My name is Fearles Lee)
How old are you? 4 years old (again, suppose to answer - I am 4 years old)
What is your favourite food? *Fearles stand there and smile, don't know how to answer, my keepo Cruz, quickly run in front and WHISPER on Fearles's ear and said "MCD"!!!!
Ah! I got no eye see, everyone at the back is laughing (at that time there are some sexy and pretty "mat salleh" ladies at back waiting for their turn for casting) I have quickly pull Cruz back to the back of the camera, and told him cannot disturb Fearles.
What is your favourite colour? Red colour.
What is your favourite cartoon? *Fearles smilling again and not answering* Cruz answer at the back saying "SPIDERMAN"!!
Those with Cruz's answer on behalf, have to re-take the shoot again. :(
When ask Fearles to do the face expression, happy face, angry face, sad face and shock face, all he does was "SMILLING FACE"!! hahahahhahahhahahhahahah
Come to the script, he can read very loud but cannot do the action. hahahhahahah
Stress?? hahahahah, when one do the casting, i have to stop the other one by running around or running to front of the camera.
If my boys don't get it, i'm happy also, it's a good exposure for them and for myself too.
before casting, start "monkeying" first....
