‘BuyBust’ director Erik Matti reveals Anne Curtis agreed to be lit on fire without a double

“Others will have too many rules. Some will take shortcuts and not break out a drop of sweat. A lot of them will spend more time looking at the mirrors than doing the actual scenes. And most of them will think that that is already what committment means. And looking at the roles she’s been accepting with #SidandAya and her new horror film, Anne Curtis Smith is the real deal. She’s a celebrity second. And a really good actor first.”

We just locked audio production for #BuyBust. And after watching the entire film again, I can’t help but think about all the crazy things we asked @annecurtissmith to do. She’s a star! And to ask for such unconventional things from stars; to ask her to be dragged on a table full of breakables, to light her on fire with no double, to demand 3 days of gruelling 57 takes of 3-minute one tracking shot all night through with rain, jumps, punches and kicks is not at all easy. Stars who are willing to do what it takes for certain roles they feel are memorable, just like Nora and Vilma, are not too many. Others will have too many rules. Some will take shortcuts and not break out a drop of sweat. A lot of them will spend more time looking at the mirrors than doing the actual scenes. And most of them will think that that is already what committment means. And looking at the roles she’s been accepting with #SidandAya and her new horror film, Anne Curtis Smith is the real deal. She’s a celebrity second. And a really good actor first.
