I have an 8 minute clip of outtakes from my previous video featuring Sativa Verte, called Miss Me Yet?
A lot of times, what I reveal in clips like these is me giving direction in between takes in order to see the girl’s reaction, or capture an out of character moment and other funny scenes. In this case, I actually have at the end of the clip, a couple of takes that were not used in the final production. One was an alternate way to shoot the ending, and the other was something comical but I thought a little too over the top. Besides, I knew I would be adding these bits to the outtakes video anyway.
For those who are curious, I often have multiple takes for a scene or a line of dialogue delivered. But in my experience, I have found the first take is usually the best one from the actress. Unless she really messed up, I’m talking about slight variations. Once you start telling the actor to try something in a different way, I think they almost focus too hard and it does not come out as well. I would rather go with the motions and delivery that came to her naturally.
As I mentioned briefly in the original video post, this was filmed on location at Sativa’s apartment building. Hence the personal artifacts, which we tied into the story by creating a mystery of why they were in a stranger’s place. We shot this on a Friday night, around 7:30 or 8:00 in the evening.
