I Oughta Be In Pictures
I don't know how I do it. I have stumbled upon another movie shoot. I have previously shared my pictures from shoots in Chicago and New Orleans. This time, I'm at the Grand Place in Brussels, Belgium.
I watched production for a while and then asked one of the cameramen what they were filming. His accent was thick, but I did understand that it was an Italian film. When I asked him the title, he said, "Exa." Maybe X? Then he said "Prima." I guess he's talking about the film.
I watched for a while longer, shaking my head at my dumb luck. They changed scenes and brought new people onto the cafe stage to be background extras. I started to wonder why they never pick me? Maybe it's because I look so stupidly starstruck with my mouth hanging open and my camera constantly in my face.
I will look for this foreign film sometime in the future. Maybe it's called "X", maybe not. I'll try to recognize the Italian movie star that I probably should have been awed by.
