Back in September, Laura Giglio, known best for her work in many WAVE movies like Abducted!, Falcon Videos like After Midnight, and assorted mermaid videos, was cast as an extra in M. Night Shymalan's "LADY IN THE WATER." She kept a bit of a diary about her experience and shares it now with all you DARK GALLERY readers.

LADY IN THE WATER is a horror film about an evil Sea Nymph that ends up in the swimming pool of an apartment complex! M. Night Shymalan has done such films as "The Sixth Sense", "Unbreakable", "Signs" and "The Village". I will be shooting on Sept. 23, 26, 27 and 28 in Pennsylvania. This will be my first time as an extra in a major motion picture! I'm pretty excited!

September 25, 2005
I just got a call from the casting people from "Lady in the Water" and they asked me if I could shoot the party scene tomorrow at 3:30! They might possibly need me to shoot on Tuesday, also, but they'll let me know.

September 28, 2005
I was on the set of "Lady in the Water" in Levittown, PA on Monday & Tuesday and what an incredible experience it was!!!! The shoots went from 3:30 in the afternoon to 4:00 in the morning! They were very long days with a lot of waiting around, but while we were on set, it was absolutely amazing!!!! The set was really cool! They built an entire apartment complex with an inground pool! There was even a haunted looking wooded area with fog and a little cottage in the woods. The scene I was in was a pool party and there were at least 200 extras on the set! But you won't believe what happened! M. Night Shyamalan must have liked me because the crew kept putting me right in front of the camera for most of the scenes!!! It started out with the camera directly behind me so you could see the back of my head. Then, in the next scene, an assistent director moved me closer to a guy I was talking to on set, so that I would be seen better! Then, as we were walking back onto the set after dinner break, another crew member asked me if I had been on camera yet and he gave me an action to do not far from the camera. I had to walk through the crowd and up some steps. Shyamalan was in the scene as well!

Then the most amazing thing of all happened! It was around 3:00 in the morning and we were shooting the last scene for the night. The camera was set up at the end of the pool near the wooded section. An assistant director placed me and 2 other people directly in front of the camera! We were right next to Bryce Howard, who plays the sea nymph. The object was that we were supposed to block her from view and then slowly move to the side to reveal her. As we were being set in place, M. Night Shyamalan came over and started talking to his cameramen. He pointed right at me and said "I like this lady here. I want to see more of her." I couldn't believe it!!! I was being singled out by the director himself!!!! It was incredible!!! So, the camera was aimed right at me in the scene!!! Shyaman even came over and explained to me what to do in the scene! I was so excited!

On Tuesday, once again, I was told to stand directly in front of the camera! I was standing with a couple other people right behind Paul Giamatti (the lead actor) and another actor while they were saying their lines! The camera was inches from us and we were right in the middle of all the action! Some of the other extras were even joking with me afterward and saying that they wanted to try to get next to me in the scenes because I always end up being placed right in front of the camera! :) I had such an incredible time! It was tiring, though, and Tuesday night was FREEZING!!! We were all wearing summer clothes because the movie takes place in summer and it was supposed to be hot. I had a little sundress and sandals on for the scene and I was SO COLD! Everyone was shivering and I was shaking so much while we waited to start the scene that Shyamalan smiled at me as he walked by and asked, "Are you cold?" He was really nice and everyone on the set was very friendly and accomodating. They might need some of us again next Tuesday. I'll let you know! I can't wait for this movie to come out!

I was on the set of "Lady in the Water" again on Tuesday, but it was not a good filming day. It was very windy and cold and we had to do a lot of waiting around for hours. When they finally called our group to the set, they only filmed for about 5 minutes. It was supposed to rain during the pool party scene, so they dumped fake rain on us from a rain machine and we all screamed and ran for cover. But I didn't even see the camera, so I don't even think I was on film this time. Then they sent us back to our tent and it really did start to rain and once it started, it poured for the rest of the night. It got so bad, that they couldn't even shoot anything else, so they sent us home at 11:30 PM. I'm supposed to go back for what I hear is our last big day of shooting the party scene on Monday, Oct. 17. We're supposed to have nicer weather, so it should go better than Tuesday's shoot!

I had my last day of filming the party scene for "Lady in the Water" on Monday, Oct. 17. Once again, I got to be right in front of the camera! The assistant director told me and another guy to walk directly in front of the camera during the scene! The first couple times we did it, they yelled "cut" before we had a chance to walk, so the assistant director said he definitely wanted to make sure we got on camera, so he had us walk sooner so that we got on screen. So, the last 5 or 6 times we did the scene, I walked right in front of the camera! It was awesome! Shyamalan was right there among us, walking around and joking with the extras. We were right there in the middle of all the action! They let us go early at 11:00 PM. This has been an incredible experience for me that I'll never forget! I can't wait for the movie to come out! The release date is scheduled for July 21, 2006.

What sort of music do you like? ventolin salbutamol inhaler buy A bright red dress is always a red carpet favourite as Emma Watson, Mila Kunis and Rihanna can all testify so why not give it a go for your next big night out? Blondes can do red too, it's just a case of finding the right shade to suit your skin tone.

Incorrect PIN tadacip 20 alkohol Trusts DO NOT allow felons to purchase weapons legally, that is a flat out lie made up by Obama. They wanted to do this because after the background checks, fees and waiting in a lot of jurisdictions the Chief Law Enforcement Officer would refuse to sign off on NFA items because of his own personal beliefs on the subject for anyone except his friends/big campaign contributors. The trusts allowed people to get away from being denied the ability to own things they had already paid and passed the checks for because of the political opinions of one person.

Canada>Canada generic rogaine for men For some people, however, turning on the heating is a symbolic ritual marking the changing of the seasons - and despite an unusually warm British summer coming to an abrupt halt, many are stubbornly determined to delay it as long as possible.

We've got a joint account misoprostol cost in canada Prior to Friday’s surprise appearance, Obama had only released a statement one day after the 6-woman jury’s verdict — and it merely called for “calm reflection” in the wake of the divisive decision.
