As content creators ourselves, we work with many actors in our projects and we have a strong appreciation for them and what they bring to our screens. Without actors, there won’t be movies or television.
Despite their importance in the ecosystem, many actors find it a challenge to be recognised and rewarded for their craft. We speak to Kris Mavericko and Renita Kapoor, who have acted as a son and mother in After_Life, a short film developed under STOREYS. They discuss what is it like to be a freelance actor in Singapore from attending auditions and finding gigs to getting paid, building a sustainable career and how they are coping with the current pandemic situation.
STOREYS is a ground up digital initiative to tell stories that can drive a positive change in Singapore. Watch After_Life here: https://www.storeys.video/watch/afterlife
