What’s a job you would like to do for just one day?

Words that came up when I thought about what I wanted to be were; pro photographer. Especially a Formula One photographer. I was a big fan of it for about 13 years. My interests have changed since then. I realised it would take years to become a pro. I didn’t want to wait that long. If there is a job I would like to be for one day, it would be a Formula One photographer. Doing sports photography isn’t easy, though. They are fast and trying to capture it; you must know how to photograph them, and I don’t.

Another job I would like to try for one day is to be on a movie set. I wouldn’t mind what job it would be. I would like to try several ones. It would be nice to follow personal assistant to actors. I wouldn’t want to do the job except if it is to keep the company of an actor or actress. But I don’t think there is a job like that. I study filmmaking, but it won’t get me a career in the movie industry. But it’s an exciting subject, which is why I am learning it.

It would be nice to try to be something I have studied for, but getting job experience in the graphic design field is under a rock. I would do it full-time and not only for a day. I guess I must live in a dream world because reality doesn’t want me to be in it.

Not just another pretty face

No not talking about me 😉

I’m talking about actors and actresses. Take Brad Pitt for example. People see him as the ‘pretty boy” Looks on the side. How about his acting skills?! Why not talk about that?! Luckily people’s attitudes has changed through the years. But still there are people talking about his looks. Same goes with these new upcoming actors/actresses.

“OMG he such a hotty”

Yeah, yeah. How about acting skills?! What do people think about that? People drooling over actors (or actresses) looks. The problem with today is, how important looks are. Even more then before. I wouldn’t want to be an actress. Too much pressure. You have to be young and pretty to get a role. Is Scarlett Johansson getting roles because of her acting abilities?! I think not. It also helps that she’s pretty (to some)

The point with this post was that people are more interested in looks then in acting skills. E.g. when the first movie of The Hobbit came out, a lot of females (maybe some men) were all over Aidan Turner. But how about now?! Not the same way. Same goes with Orlando Bloom. I guess all those teens grew up and don’t see him the same way. Now people all over Lee Pace. It’s the novelty that people find attractive.

I don’t fit that role. I usually start to notice that kind of thing much later. I did notice Christian Bale’s looks first though. But his acting abilities are just amazing. Not everyone can play a sociopath (American Psycho) and be believable.

There’s nothing wrong about liking an actor/actress for their looks. But they should also like them for their acting skills.

I would rather hear people say;he’s such a good actor. Instead of; OMG that actor is so hot. It is an acting job, not a beauty contest.
