Steven Stamkos Talks Acting

from Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune,

In the short film, which lasts around two minutes, Stamkos portrays fictional hockey player Shawn Warford, who gets traded by his father/coach and goes on to score five goals with his dad on the opposing bench. The film also features Edmonton’s Jordan Eberle — who did his own Moment Zero ad portraying Kevin Walker — and TSN television personality Bob McKenzie.

Being in that situation gave Stamkos a new appreciation for actors and those involved with filming movies and television.

“It’s amazing that it’s that long of a process,’’ he said of the 8½-hour day to shoot two commercials. “There’s a lot of sitting around, a lot of waiting, moving of camera angles and stuff like that and for (90 seconds) of actual video. So I have a lot of respect for actors and what they have to go through to make a movie and that’s a two-hour movie.

“It’s an unbelievably long and sometimes painful process, but in the end the professionals that edit it, they make it look good.’’
