"FACETS OF ME"
BESPOKE ACTOR PORTFOLIO SHOOT
This is an invitation to Actors and Performing artists alike who have a hunger for more; who believe acting is a fundamental part of their dream and experience of being human and in some way is deeply connected with their identity and purpose of life.
How much of 'You' is there in your Portfolio?
Most Actor Portfolios, Updated Look Books and Photo-shoots happen with the agenda to capture certain types of images depending on the actors’ looks and preconceived personality, fitting them in various boxes of stereotypes- the chocolate boy, the angry hero, the dutiful child and sibling, the second fiddle to the lead, etc. Hence actors end up with model poses in their photoshoots that are more about the costumes, makeup-hair and looks rather than an authentic representation of who they are, their acting skills, their range of emotions and their individuality.
In the current commercialised setup, there is hardly any space for exploring beyond the stereotype as it requires special attention, vision and artistic collaborative exploration between the Performing artist and the Director and the Photographer to create a magical image that captures the Actor’s emotion at the decisive moment with honesty and freedom. Casting directors, directors, producers, channel heads, agencies alike face the same issue of forming their first impression about an actor from their Photographs. Having the right look and emotions in the photographs becomes a direct ticket to cracking an audition and convincing the decision makers about their potential. Especially since Picture casting is normally the first step of selection of actors in the current metaverse.
A picture speaks a thousand words. Therefore your Acting Portfolio Images and Social Media Reels, which forms the basis of your first impression even before a formal Introduction or Audition, needs to represent you, enhance your personality, assert your skill and presence as an actor. So how much of You is there in your portfolio?

THE EXPERIENCE: WHAT TO EXPECT
The following story best sets the premise to understand the essence of the experience:
There was once a Faqir who was loved by all. Like anyone who is loved, he was disliked by a few. To prove that he was frivolous, they paid a few courtesans to seduce the Faqir and invited the town to witness his downfall. As these women were considered of questionable character, the people who were watching were aghast as they saw the Faqir welcome these courtesans with the same love and compassion as he would to anyone else. The courtesans announced that they had come to give him pleasure through the talent of their dance and music. The Faqir said, why not if God has sent you to me then who am I to refuse. Some of the courtesans broke into a sensuous dance as the others played the most beautiful exhilarating music and sang the most erotic songs. The Faqir seemed to be delighted, much to the dismay of those who were silently watching and loved him. As the dance progressed, the courtesans began stripping. This seemed to further excite the faqir. First, the veils came off, then the jewelry. to the horror of the townspeople, the Faqir started shouting in ecstasy, Yes! Yes! Take it off.
Soon the courtesans stood naked in front of the Faqir with no more things to take off. They began approaching the Faqir. But the faqir yelled, no don’t stop, take it off. Take it off, I want to see what is within. The courtesans laughed and said the faqir had lost his mind. But the Faqir stopped them and said before you come towards me, strip it all off. I long to be in union with what you hide. Wipe off these paints on your body, discard your flesh and bones, discard these fake, limiting identities you are stuck to, your body size, your body type, the color of your skin, take off your past, present, fears, and dreams. Take off all of these & let me see what is inside. Bring into the light that is hidden under all these things that can be discarded.
It is this desire of the Faqir that lights the work of Judhajit & Ranadeep’s job as a photographer, filmmaker, storyteller - as artists. To go as deep as possible, to capture a person in various forms of their authenticity & this is what makes the whole experience of working with Judhajit & Ranadeep so much more than a photo shoot. They have the rare talent of exploration through the facilitation of vulnerability. The experience is emotional, aesthetic and spiritual, it has a probability of open-ended inner work.
