Dave Eastgate Shoot

Posted: September 24, 2017 in acting, gigs, videos

Friday night (22nd Sept. 2017) I was up at Factory Theatres at the beginning of my bigh night. The cast of Ahmed Zhub – Kebab Tonight were hanging, waiting to go on stage.

That was when Greta said “did you get a phone call from Nick Radford from A-List?”.  I checked my phone and apparently I had. Would I like to take part in a shoot as an extra with Dave Eastgate? I said yes. Why wouldn’t I? Dave was fighting someone at a barbeque. It sounded fun.

So there I was at Marrickville Park after my big night at the Factory with Ahmed Zhub – Kebab Tonight and my Roast Battle at the Hilarium feeling a little bit tired. The sun was beating down on our heads.

We all sat around a table like we were at a barbeque and we were the family of Greta or Dave who were at daggers drawn. We look at the actors. We don’t like Greta and we don’t like Dave Williams who was wearing a shirt with an AC/DC badge. We all just watch while Greta puts a pavlova on the table and Alistair’s girls pinch strawberries off the top and run away. That was our scene.

Then we just hung around some more, trying to find the shade.  Boner Contention, all dressed in black sat under a tree and looked pretty cool.

The video was set at a barbeque area and everyone else had something to do. Dave Eastgate and Greta had some other scenes to do, the crew were prepping (making things look like a barque, setting up cameras and the kids were playing as kids do (Alistair’s kids got a lot of stuff to do, stealing food, throwing food, I was quite jealous).

I just stood around checking out the other people having fun; making stupid jokes.

One scene (not connected with the video) that amused me was on the slippery dip, a little boy was funnelling gravel down a shute to a little girl and every time he did it she went “no, no, no!” I thought it was funny (because he kept on doing it. Haha).

After a couple of hours of watching other people acting and watching other people prepping and watching people play; the director said “that’s a wrap!” I thought it was a barbeque.  LOL. I think I like to be centre stage.

Turns out it was for the Boner Contention’s Bonerific BBQ/Video Shoot. Another one for my “acting” CV?
