It's an Italian word, if you hadn't guessed. It's straight translation is ploy, but it was described to me by my directors as the things we do to get what we want/need in life. This was my first short directed by non-student directors, with a producer, and at a legitimate production company. It was my first look into a professional set, and it very much provided me with some insight of what I want in life, and what "ploys" I need to get there. Without giving any detail, because honestly I don't know how much I am allowed to say or show, let me just say that this was the first film experience I had where my training at NYU actually saved my sanity. It also was the first role where I took ownership of the scenes and acting. It was the best transitional acting experience I could have asked for, filled with scary challenges but a crew of incredibly encouraging people. Here's to more.
