This is also the case for Natalie Morales’ “Language Lessons”, a duet consisting of two characters separated geographically but linked by Zoom.
Morales (“Parks and Recreation”), also known as Carino Morales (“Parks and Recreation”), is an online tutor in Spanish. Adam (Marc Duplas), informed him about the upcoming pre-paid Spanish course.
This surprise gift was given by his partner. When the two—she was in Costa Rica, and he was in Oakland, California—discussed their lives, attitudes, and hopes, the surprise continued.
“Language Class”, which is unlike other virtual movies about relational movies, doesn’t have a format. It becomes exciting, spontaneous, and continually surprising.
36-year-old Morales recalled: “Mark called me when everything was locked in by the budding of an idea.” “Because he was taking a Spanish class, he wanted to know if I could speak Spanish, I said Yes.
“Well, then he asked, may we make a movie on this relationship? We wrote it quickly and finished it.
“Courses”, seem so real, that you want know if they’re improvisations.
She replied, “Yes or not.” “About 50-50. We wrote a lot, especially in Spanish, to ensure everything was correct. We had particular lines or plot points that were important to us. It was written in an improvisational manner. To make it as real-life as possible.”
Morales was unable to find what the director gave her. She said that she could not find it elsewhere.
“I have my opinion in most situations. It is something I usually do not say. Unless asked by someone, or unless it’s my job to tell them.
“Especially in the acting world, you have to listen to other peoples’ voices (I also enjoy it). One of the most interesting aspects about director is that the captain of this ship can be you.
“There is a risk. You would probably think it would end in disaster. You thought all these thoughts.
“But once you are willing to bet on yourself and feel you have a team that is trustworthy, respecting each other, it’s time to take the final decision about moving things forward.
“It can be frightening, but it can also be exciting, and I find it very fascinating.”
