La Cantante de Tango: the film shoot

If you were wondering why some of the familiar faces did not show up at this weekend’s milongas, this is the reason: we were at Diego Martinez Vignatti‘s film shoot. “La Cantante de Tango”, Diego’s second feature film, required a milonga scene, and it was shot right at the Cultural Center of Schaarbeek, on Nosotros home territory. For most of us it was a first-time experience to participate in an actual movie, so we learned things like: a director can be very concentrated, impatient and charming at the same time, schedules and instructions change all the time, actors need continuous make-up and hair redoes, and us extras have to excel at waiting, remembering our start/stop position and being silent most of the time. And certainly not look into the camera!
Every now and then we did get to dance, and by ‘we’ I mean the others, because I just took pictures the whole weekend. Here’s a selection.

All pictures can be found at Film shoot: La Cantante de Tango. We’re obviously all looking forward to see the actual movie in early 2009!
