The Paw Print

Paw Print Reporter Goes to Hollywood

Lights, camera, action.

I was looking forward to a day of glamour only to find that being in a movie was nothing even remotely close.

Looking at movie stars, the first thing one thinks about is their money, fame and fortune. Walking the red carpet, never having to do their own makeup and always in the spotlight.

On September 26th, 2014, my cheerleading team, Xtreme Cheer CT was invited to play the role of the high school cheerleaders in Jesse Eisenburg’s new movie, “Louder Than Bombs”. After doing the same scenes repeatedly in eighty degree weather on turf that made it feel like 100 degrees. Being a movie star is not everything it’s sawt out to be.

When my team and I were on set we had to do the same seine 20-30 times. Every time the director said, “background action!” we had to make up what we were going to be doing. No one told me that we could not change our routine so for the whole day I had to sit in my right leg split for thirty seconds, walk over to the fifty yard line, do a dance and a jump sequence then a few tumbling passes. When he called, “cut!” I had to walk back to 10 yard line and do it all over. Twenty to thirty times. By the end of the day I was not only sore and tired but I had the worst farmers tan I can ever imagine.

The part was that the food was delicious, the people were nice, and I did not have to go to school that day. Now forever and always I get to say I was in a movie! After all this back breaking work I do not regret a thing but I would never do it again.
