American Heart Association Film

Tuesday, I was in a film for the American Heart Association.  It was about heat stroke, and how to tell if a kid has it, and what to do if they do.  (Cool them off and given them sports drinks, and call an ambulance if you can’t cool them off.)

We all had to wear shorts and a lot of red make-up to make us look sunburned because we were supposed to be at summer camp.  They found a heated swimming pool to film the part where the counselors were dunking the kid with heatstroke, though, which was a pretty good thing.

It’s not that cold yet in Texas, but it would have been pretty cold in that swimming pool in December if it hadn’t been heated. One of the cool things was that they had monitors set up around the set, and between takes we could look at them and see ourselves.  This is me looking over the director’s shoulder at one of the monitors.  It was a fun shoot!
