Nick Ferrucci stars in the independent film The Falls (2012). He
acted in the movie during the summer of 2010 after he graduated from
Southern Oregon University with a Bachelor's degree and before he left
to Northern Illinois University (NIU) where he is currently working on
his Master of Fine Arts in acting. He'll complete his MFA in May of
2013. In my review
of his film, which was released on DVD on December 11, I praised his
work as exemplary and quite accomplished, if not showing great promise
for him as an actor in the future. I was taken aback when Ferrucci told
me over the phone that he regretted filming the movie before going to
graduate school. While he knew the basics of performance, looking back
after nearly three years in grad school, he modestly admitted that he
didn't know nearly as much about acting as he could have.
I gave the movie and Ferrucci's performance five stars, which, if I were one of his professors at Southern Oregon, would have translated as an "A" grade. Yet, hearing this actor who was between schooling be critical of the work he did made me doubt my initial feelings about his performance and made me think that maybe I should have been more critical too. It also made me consider going back and possibly lowering the grade I gave to Ferrucci's performance.
