This never made it into the final cut of Noise Matters but I still wanted to share it with you. It was never in the script and I decided to shoot it on the spur of the moment so I was very fortunate to have everyone jump right on board with my silliness. It is a very unusual funeral, I think the title says it all. The song is titled Brazil by Xavier Cugat.
This is my acting demo reel. It showcases some of my work in front of the camera.
Can You Dig? Is an experimental shoot that took place in the Mojave desert near Calico’s ghost town off of Interstate 15. It was shot as a test for the still unproduced film “West of Nowhere”. According to the screenplay this would have been the first three pages.
Synopsis: Digging a hole, in the middle of the desert, for no apparent reason, can drive one insane. Matias Masucci Digging, Shot & Directed by Kevin Dorian and bizarrely edited by Matias Masucci.
This is a satire on the making of an actor’s demo reel.
As it is often the case, not very many people thought it was funny. When I came up with the idea I thought it was hilarious and the most amazing thing ever. I was mistaken but it was fun to make.
Thanks to Ugo Bianchi, Kevin Dorian and Sebastien Hameliene who helped with the making.
Note: A demo reel is what actors use to showcase their work.
Pablo (Matias Masucci) decides he will not let death come between him and his fiance Bianca (Caitlin Dahl) and continues to go about his life as if her death never happened.
This morbid tale was directed and shot by Bryten Goss and written and produced by Bryten Goss and Matias Masucci.
