Any Of You Been On TV, Movies? On-Screen Stories?

Sun Dec 12, 2004 8:58 am

Dunno why... but even if you've done it a zillion times, there's always something magical about seeing yourself on-screen.



As for me; I've done two commercials for local products and the Bible Channel, and one commercial for LPB at age 11 that aired nationwide. Later did a production with my best friend at age 19 (was edited-out... so it was essentially for nothing, but still got paid though Big grin), and nothing since that.

Dunno why, but for the last two days, been seriously bitten by the acting-bug. Might go audition for some stuff.



What about the rest of you fools... have any on-screen experiences, stories to share?

Any of you trying to do so locally, or someday might considering trying to make it in Hollywood or the equivalent thereof wherever you may be?

I "got some ink." Did a print ad. Later I got called for a GTE commercial but I was out flying. One was a chance encounter, the other was a referral from someone I'd worked with. No real interest in doing anything of the kind again. I think most of us are not actually comfortable with that - seeing our face plastered about like that.

Couple of friends were in "East of Eden" with James Dean. (I met him) and my niece was in "The Russians are Coming, The Russians are Coming."

When I was a kid a book I wrote was on reading rainbow..

Then a few years ago during Peter Jennings tour of America, he had a high school roundtable type debate with some kids from all over SE WI that I was in, it aired on our local ABC station in prime time.

I was on the Full House episode where they all went to Orlando. I was walking in the background, and didn't realize they were taping.

I've walked in front of many cameras in NYC.

I was interveiwed by 3 news stations in Dallas about street racing (at one point an epidemic there)

Sure...

I was in a television special for a music group that I like back in 1994. We were all commanded to visit a friends flat and "hang out" so they could film it. Quite scary looking back at it now.

I've also been on television in the Mardi Gras in Sydney - the full feet to head close up one year when I was wearing swimmers and a see through white singlet top. Special.

Other than that, I've been featured in the newspapers three times. Once for winning the School Newspaper of the Year competition, once for a a story we did in the aforementioned newspaper, and once in the Social Pages.

I was on TRL on MTV back in '99 (one of the people yelling in the street, didn't actually go up into the studio). You could see my face on TV for a split second. I was thrilled. I was also interviewed at Union Station in D.C. this summer, around the time of the Republican National Convention. Never did find out if it aired, though.  Sad

I sat with a cello in a bit of an artistic film called "Hillary and Jackie" about the classical cellist Jacqueline du Pre. I didn't see it in the cinema but have it on DVD so one day I can show people how famous I once was (I'm in it for about 10 seconds!).

I also did my engineering degree work experience in the special effects department for Star Wars - The Phantom Menace. Got to see (from a distance) George Lucas, Liam Neeson, Natalie Portman and that kid who plays Anakin. Also got to use a smoke machine once or twice and sandpaper a few cups on set. Mainly just tried not to get in the way too much for 8 weeks!

When there was a fatal car smash last year in Wellington. (13 car pile up, during heavy rain, hardly any visability). Well I was spending the day with the Police and the police patrol traffic car I was in was called to the accident. Much to my surprise that night while I was watching the news......I saw myself on TV helping direct the traffic and helping the injured. It was strange seeing me wearing a POLICE safety jacket

I was given a 10-second interview on why learning can be achieved by watching educational programs, that was when I was like 8 or 9.

I did some audio stuff for computer games, the voices for the 3-6 yr old game voices, that was when i was 10.

Heh heh... I can top ALL this stuff.

I was a stunt double once in a one-hour Discovery Channel program. Guess what I had to do in this blockbuster?

I died.

You read that right. The program, aptly titled "Life After Death" was a documentary on near-death experiences. At the time I was a very active scuba diver and divemaster (plus I worked in the industry as marketing manager for a wetsuit company), and I got a call out of the blue from an instructor friend who had kindly offered our services to the production company. Basically, I played a woman who near-drowned in a diving accident, was dragged to the beach by bystanders, trasported to a hospital, and later revived. We filmed some close-ups in a deep pool and did the beach scenes at Dockweiler beach... right on the departure path for LAX, and a couple hundred yards from the infamous Hyperion sewage treatment plant. After being dragged through the surf and dumped on the beach five or six times, having CPR simulated on me (not fun... I was *really* sore the next day), and picking up enough bacteria to get a rip-roaring ear infection two days later, I got a check for $350 and razzed for MONTHS by all my diver friends, since the show was really cheesy and aired a number of times. Needless to say, I haven't felt any particular urge to act since.  Insane

Interesting that you brought this up... I should go locate that videotape and have a good laugh from it. In retrospect, though, it kinda pisses me off that I didn't get mentioned in the credits for all that.

Smiles,
Leanne

Here's my other claim to fame...In February 2001, when I was 15, I was at a Miami Heat-New York Knicks game at AA Arena in Miami with my dad, and sitting near us was singer Jimmy Buffett...In the 4th quarter Buffett started cursing off at the referee over some call, and kept doing it, so they decided to throw him out of the arena...stopped the game and everything...next day, we read the New York Times sports section, and I'm shocked/amused to see a picture of the incident, but me and my dad are clearly visible in the shot...



Im the guy with the glasses with my neck craned up (looking up at the scoreboard), my dad is the guy in the blue collared shirt just to the right...the game was nationally televised on NBC, needless to say, when I was back at school in PA on Monday, I got a lot of "Greg, was that you I saw on TV at the Heat-Knicks game on Saturday?" It was kinda awkward having to explain me being in Florida over a non-holiday weekend to about 20 different people...

Oh yeah, I forgot. I appear anonymously in:

  • A postcard sold at the PX at Fort Rucker Alabama during Vietnam. I was standing on the engine deck of a Huey with my back to the camera.


  • Volume 1 Number 1 of the "Pacific Flyer" an aviation newspaper published in southern California. The photo was of the Ryson Cloudster, a motorized glider developed by T. Claude Ryan and Ladislao Pazmany and flown by Ray Cote. I was standing at the wingtip wearing Dave Clarks.


  • The cover of the AOPA magazine. It was an aerial photo and I saw the formation flight that took the photo. I've visible on the airport ramp below, standing next to a corporate jet.


  • I did NOT make this one: In the late '70s Donny and Marie Osmond were on the cover of TV Guide. I was just off camera right, holding Marie's gown.

    My highschool in Seattle teamed up with the local EAA chapter and we assembled a homebuilt plane, a Zenithair STOL CH-701 (small bush plane), completely from sheet metal. I had appeared in a few newspapers around the state, it was a shot with my dad, we were working on the lower wing skins. A TV station came in and shot some video too, we were all standing there with our tools and goggles on at the time.

    When some of my college buddies and I threw a stripper pole party here in Jacksonville this past September, the photo of all of us (and the winning dancer) was posted in a few places.....AND the whole story made it to the AP, who put it in newspapers as far away as New Zealand and South Africa..lol, pretty good for 3 college students and $200 in supplies Big grin

    A few instances; local news TV, newspapers while crewing at air shows, some auto show interviews/documentaries, several police blotters, etc., but my big film 'debut' was as an extra in the fireladder/crowd scene in "It's A Mad, Mad, Mad World" back in 196? A bunch of us students at Art Center College of Design in LA got paid $5/day scale for that  Smile Regards...Jack

    I have been on the news and in the newspaper a couple of times. First time in the Chattanooga paper was when I became a naturalized US citizen. The second time was when the Chattanooga Times did a Lifestyle write up on our family. The TV news was when the railroad that I worked for ran a campaign train for one of the local Democrats. TV media was at the Chickamauga, Georgia stop to cover Representative Mike Snow's bid for re-election. I was the conductor assigned to that train and appeared in some of the footage of the campaign stop. I also appeared in a Georgia paper when we used Summerville, Georgia's new turntable to turn our locomotive for the first time. They had a big dedication ceremony, complete with the Lt. Governor of Georgia to deliver the keynote speech. On cue, the fireman and I took our places (he was at the motor control and I at the front of the locomotive to line the table up). We turned the locomotive, recoupled it to the train and then made preparations for the trip home.

    I have also done a lot of off camera work with movie productions that used our railroad. I was the conductor assigned to the movie train used by the production company that filmed "The Adventures of Ociee Nash." They were in Chattanooga for a week, filming on our railroad and the connecting Chattooga and Chickamauga Railroad using our equipment. Since I was qualified as passenger conductor on both lines at the time, I was assigned as conductor for the entire project. We got to see a lot of the filming firsthand and had a good time. For the Warner Bros. movie "Fled" which starred Laurence Fishburne and Stephen Baldwin, they filmed a segment using our railroad's Chickamauga Creek bridge and Missionary Ridge tunnel. I was sent out with a location scout so that he could get some dimensions on the tunnel for their rigging crew. Local train dropped us off at the tunnel and picked us up on the return, waiting to pass through the tunnel until we signalled that we were clear of the tunnel (we had to go through it on foot and there's no space for a person and a train at the same time).

    I used to "do" traffic, and was on several TV and radio stations for about 13 years in the Tampa market. When we went to Orlando to escape hurricane Charley (That ended up hitting Orlando, and missing TPA) I was interviewed by a CBS crew doing a story about folks fleeing from Tampa. I also did radio in East Texas for a while. I almost got to be in a movie filmed in Houston a million years ago called "Brewster McCloud", but was sick the day they picked kids in my acting class to be extras.

I couldn't go anywhere around my city, and the next city over without someone saying "Hey, your that kid in the Custom Eyes comercials!" I was a mini-celebrity for a few years...lol.

    The only serious air-time I ever received has always been while working.

    The first time was on December 31, 1999; when everyone was afraid of the Y2K epademic possibly destroying the world. I was working at a local grocery store bagging groceries and a reporter from Columbus' local NBC affiliate did her live report in front of me about how some people were stocking up on bottled water and canned foods.

    The second time was a few months ago when Independence Air opened in Columbus. I was working the ticket counter that day with some co-workers of mine, and footage of us was featured on most local news channels that evening.

    Back in 1978 the Red Sox had the one game playoff against the Yankees. I went to school down the street from Fenway. Me and my pals decided to go to the game instead. The line for bleacher seats was already miles long at 7am. so we decided to climb the billboard across the street. Wouldn't you know at noon they decide there are way too many people up there and call in the fire department ladder to get us all down. Local news was showing it live and zoomed in on me as I descended the ladder, of course, my mother was home watching the news..........

    I sat with a cello in a bit of an artistic film called "Hillary and Jackie" about the classical cellist Jacqueline du Pre

    Nice, I know Hillary Finzi quite well. She lives about 3miles from me and I've been skiing with her and her crazy husband a couple of times!

    When my school opened a chapel of national importance the Queen came to the opening ceremony and I spoke to her which made national news. Same thing happened when former British Prime Minister John Major came to the school. High profile school attracted high profile guests and I was one of those chosen as I was 'a good ambassador' for the school!

    I also did an interview for BBC when my brother was rowing at Henley Royal Regatta in 2003. He was still at the school in final year and I had left a year previous and after they won their event we both got interviewed.

    In 1999 I was at the Rugby World Cup semi-final (New Zealand vs France) and in the highlights it showed a close up of me cheering a French try, although I was actually cheering for NZ!

    Last September I participated in the Colombian "Who wants to be a Millionare" I think I did a good job and the following weeks people recognized me in the streets!

    Hey guys,
    I was on our local TV station, WJZ-TV 13, twice. The first time I was just walking in the background when they were covering the Baltimore Auto Show at the Convention Center, the second time I was actually interviewed about what I thought of traffic problems at BWI Airport.

    The most interesting time I've been on TV was when WBAL-TV did a story on a/c spotters at BWI Airport! I was interviewed there as well and I was also shown taking photos of a WN 737 on approach. Locals know where the spotters park is, the story took place there. It was great!

    I was on COPS when my wife beat me up. I was the guy with no shirt and his pants falling down.

    I was twice on TV. Nothing big. First time in Poland, I was dressed as a santa and I was loading truck with goodies for kids in Ukraine. This was aired nationwide in 8 oclock news  Smile Second time I was on TV right here at BWI. TV came to the park right after AA A300 crashed at JFK. I didn't want to talk to them in front of the camera, but I agreed that they can record me taking pictures etc. One of our members talked to them for about 10 minutes. Most of the conversation was edited, they (TV crew) made some BIG mistakes (like calling Frontier's 737 a Southwest jumbo jet etc.)
    Also our group was futured in Washington Post in big article.

    I was on the local news a few times but didn't know it. Happened when I was in college and working for the railroad.

    There was a railroad strike and I had to work those nights at Penn Station.


    From what I hear, I was also on Discovery Wings last week, on the show,
    "Concorde: The Final Flight"

    I appeared in an episode of Frasier that aired in 1998. They were filming on location in Seattle that day. The show centered around the City of Seattle holding a "Frasier Crane Fan Appreciation Day". I was in the scene briefly when Frasier and Niles walk outside the monorail station at the Westlake Plaza
