CASTING & DIRECTION
Her wordless expressions of delight and excitement entice us to keep watching and experience to full effect of three amazing bites. It’s an attitude, a glimmer behind the eyes, and an innate sense of style that can’t be denied. It’s cliché but true: we should be able to feel her upbeat, personable, quirky energy the moment this star walks in the room.
Her beauty is unique and contemporary. She’s fresh; nothing is cookie-cutter about her in appearance or attitude. She’s captivating, engaging and above all: real. She moves and reacts to the rollercoaster of the taste experience in a way that invites us to keep watching and join her.
Establishing a rapport with our actress and getting to know what makes her tick is a nuanced part of my process when directing this kind of sensory-driven performance. It’s easier to elicit a fresh reaction when I have a sense of her personality and how she reacts to suggestion. I want her performance to communicate a sense of inclusion – like she’s your best friend about to let you in on a secret.
