One Direction at Camp
My alarm went off at 7am this morning, ugh its summer and I’m up at 7. I don’t mind though because I have a scene this morning, I jumped out of bed and headed for the communal showers, I would normally find it weird that I have to share a shower with men and women with only a little curtain separating each shower cubical, but I guess I’m used to it by now. Oh why am I getting up at 7am in the holidays and why have I got a scene this morning I hear you ask? Well I will start at the beginning…cue my brief life story!
My name is Lilly I’m 21 and I am an aspiring actress, I sing dance and act, I suppose you can say I’m the whole package (I’m not big headed honestly). Well ever since I was little I always wanted to be an actress, making it into the industry is bloody hard though so every year since I was 16 I attended a summer camp for aspiring singers, dancers, and actors/actresses. Lots of big name stars started off here. I love this place, the last few years though I haven’t really got any jobs for acting, and to be honest I’m starting to lose my love for it. Two years ago the camp asked me to be a camp director, this means that I supervise some of the campers, organise fun activities and even teach some classes. I fell in love with teaching; I am able to share the skills I have learnt for acting, singing and dancing with the campers. So each year I come back to camp and teach sessions, it’s a dream job!
Some of the older campers have been requesting a certain type of scene that they want to gain experience in. I must admit I’m not exactly looking forward to this scene as it is always the most awkward to do. However I learnt how to tackle a scene like this and I feel that the campers would benefit from gaining experience too. This morning I was demonstrating a sex scene, I know what you’re thinking ‘a sex scene at camp…I need to go to that camp’ ye well sex scenes are not that glamorous they are normally just really awkward and quite often really funny to shoot. Luckily I was demonstrating the scene with one of my best guy friends, yes we dated a few years back but recently he has realised he is gay, I didn’t turn him gay I promise!
