My acting scene(s) in Beyond the Sea (scene from)
This is a scene from Beyond the Sea. Robert Starling needed to gain experience as a Steadicam Operator. I was working as an Editor for his Production Company and his lead actor dropped out at the last minute. He knew I worked as an actor in LA and Miami, so he asked me to jump in at the last minute.
This is my first on camera acting since I went back to school at West LA College for a degree in MultiMedia in 1999.
Trailer for Beyond the Sea (actual movie)
A swooning study of “Mack the Knife” singer Bobby Darin and specifically his relationship with wife Sandra Dee.
Consummate entertainer Bobby Darin (1936-1973) is making a movie about his life. He’s volatile, driven by the love of performing, ambition, perfectionism, and belief that he’s living on borrowed time. He begins in the Bronx: a fatherless lad learning music and dance from his mom. His career starts slowly, then “Splish Splash” puts him at the top of the charts and on “Bandstand.” He wants to be an entertainer, not a pop star, so he aims for the Copacabana; then it’s on to the movies, where he meets and marries Sandra Dee. After, it’s balancing career, health, marriage and family life, balances he doesn’t always keep. Throughout, conversations with his boyhood self give him perspective.
Thank you to Director/Steadicam Operator Robert Starling for molding my performance and giving me such great actions to do. Thank you to my scene partner Judy Thomas for giving me such great emotion to act opposite. Thank you to all the other Crew Members for making me look so good.
I look forward to working with you all again SOON!
