Outtakes Video: Bare in the Park

I have put together a clip of some outtakes from the video “Bare in the Park” with Sativa Verte and Sandra Reyes. This was obviously a fun shoot, enjoying a great location with two beautiful women. It was not without its challenges, however. From a bee that thought to invade our tent early on, to dealing with other campers who had the audacity to use the park in the middle of our photography! Shot on an early Sunday afternoon, there were not a lot of people around, but enough that we had to be careful. I’ve mentioned the scene by the lake, and the outtakes video will feature Sativa doing her best to show off her legs and create the illusion of nudity.

When the time came for the girls to get really naked on the hiking trail, we were interrupted at least twice. The first time had the appearance of a Chinese tour group, if I remember correctly. I catch the initial reaction of Sandra, ever alert and aware, before shutting down the camera. The second instance, as I was trying to shoot the Grimble Gang scene, involved an older lady passing us on the trail. Sativa tries to be apologetic and friendly, while I scramble to get the ladies their covering. Sandra teased me during the rest of the shoot that I seemed more concerned with hiding the stuffed animals first, before throwing them their sun dresses. A little bit of this frantic frustration is captured in the outtakes.

It was much more relaxed out in the picnic area, which interestingly was more out in the open, but no one was around. Across the park road was a playground in the distance, but again, this was a wide spacious area and a lot of room to shoot. At one point, a man was walking his dog and Sandra caught sight of him and yelped. We actually worked this into the finished video, and used it in the scene by the picnic table. I think we were far enough away that he never saw us. My thought when shooting these kinds of public scenes is that most people are so oblivious, they will mostly likely never look in our direction and remain completely unaware of what is going on.

Out by the park restrooms, we were again secluded enough to make this a relatively easy scene. Further down the path was a dog run and parking lot with quite a few people. However, no one came near and we had the large brick building to hide behind. This scene also contains what I believe were some of Sativa’s funniest material. It also includes one of the times she flubbed a line of dialogue, and it was very entertaining. One of the great things about Sativa’s acting besides her delivery, are her great facial expressions, and the natural instinct to look for random objects to cover up with.

Below is a link to download the outtakes. The clip runs about 8 minutes.

Bare in the Park – Outtakes




Bare in the Park

Combining the talents of Sandra and Sativa Verte, this is a story about two friends who go camping one summer weekend. Sativa plays the more adventurous and enthusiastic character, while Sandra is less than thrilled over the idea of outdoor living. When the curly-haired brunette suggests going for a quick skinny-dip, the short-tempered Puerto-Rican girl is naturally distrustful. However, she reluctantly agrees, which only leads to their discarded clothing disappearing. This is followed by an embarrassing encounter, and the completely bare young women getting lost in the park!

The video introduces the very special Narrow-minded Productions “Tent of Love”. And there is also a guest appearance by the Grimble Gang, along with a new member, Pepe. I say guest appearance because they are only used in one scene, so it is much like a film cameo. This was not the kind of video that would allow setting up the characters and continuous cutting back and forth, with all the packing up and moving we had to do. Still, I thought their re-emergence was pretty funny, and the first time they get to work with two damsels in distress.

I also want to mention that the lake scene is not what I originally envisioned. A photographer can scout a location a thousand times, but when the moment for the shoot actually arrives, there might suddenly be unexpected company. In this case, there was a father and son not ten yards away from the end of the dock where we were setting up the scene.  I would not have minded if there were people out on boats, and if no one was close by, I would have risked the ladies undressing. As it was, we had to be creative with a curious audience on hand.

Fans of seeing the actual stripping will perhaps be disappointed. There is instead, implied action, and cuts and fade-ins to the clothes lying on the ground, with the girls overheard and Sativa’s lovely bare legs. I was planning to re-imagine the Julia Roberts skinny-dipping scene from “I Love Trouble” and use this as the point where the Grimble characters appear. Instead, I moved the revealing nakedness to a different location, where I thought it was more private. (More on that later…) Nevertheless, the remainder of the video is 100% pure female nudity goodness.

I want to add that I believe Sativa’s acting was in top form, and was just awesome. Her co-star, Sandra has always been entertaining, accent and all, but finally I was able to pair her up with an experienced solid performer. I suppose Sandra plays the “straight man” to Sativa’s comedic delivery, although they both have funny moments. It should make for a unique and enjoyable viewing.

For the music soundtrack, I was privileged to work with Peanuth O’Toole. He came up with a most appropriate tune called simply “Girl Scouts”. It has a marching beat, and a tuba-like bass line that is almost reminiscent of an old German sex-comedy from the 70’s. Some slide whistles and other funny noises lend the music a silly feel, perfect for the inclusion of the Grimble Gang, to go along with quality accompaniment of two girls hiking. Later on, Peanuth would speed up an alternate version that uses a distorted guitar for the melody. I plunked this track in for the end credits.

The full video is over 17 minutes from start to finish, making it the longest production of 2013, so far. I was happy with the length and pacing. One thing that might stand out is that there were few instances where I had to feed Sativa and Sandra any dialogue. They were able to take the situation, and my direction about what I was looking for, and have a running, amusing conversation between two friends who find themselves frustrated in a spot of trouble.

The video is available in two parts at my clips4sale store.



July Video Shoot

On a hot summer Sunday, what better way to spend the day than in a park with Sandra Reyes… and Sativa Verte!

I have just finished a lovely video shoot with these two beautiful women who are no strangers to my productions, but this is the first time teaming them up together. For the location, we used a park that included camp grounds, picnic areas, a lake and hiking trails. I wish I could say the place was not as crowded as I would like for shooting various risky nude scenes. But it was more of a hit and miss experience. Some areas were more secluded than others, although there were always people passing by in the distance, walking their dogs and whatnot. The scene by the lake was difficult to shoot, and I will do my best to piece it together in editing.

Overall, it was a very fun shoot and features both Sandra and Sativa as two friends losing their clothes and naturally getting lost. The two of them running around naked in broad daylight, in public scenery is always exciting.

The big news, I suppose, is the implication that Sativa is back! She has returned to my area at least for the time being. So there should be the opportunity for more upcoming shoots with the gorgeous brunette.

Here are some photos I took during the shoot, which will have to serve as an appetizer. I am planning to have the full video finished by the end of the month.

Stay tuned!







Best Bottoms

On this Day of Independence when we honor life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, I am taking a moment to pull out a clip I created at the end of 2011. This was posted in my old newsgroup, just a few months before I started this blog. I never got around to re-posting it here. The clip is a slideshow compilation of some of the best bottoms I have had the pleasure to work with over the years. This is one of my favorite features of the female anatomy. I believe the well-shaped rear end is one of the most wonderful gifts our Creator has endowed upon women. I’m pretty sure Thomas Jefferson meant to include that in the Declaration, and its omission was only an oversight.

A short video at 1 and a half minutes, again, it is a slideshow of screen captures from various productions. I also took the opportunity to play with the pan and zoom capabilities of Windows Live Movie Maker. Finally, a group member had suggested using the music from “Three Little Maids From School Are We”,  which makes a charming accompaniment.

There was a poll taken at the time, asking people to vote on who has the best bottom. Sativa naturally won, as I recall. But they are all lovely to watch.

On a television commercial-related note, Samuel Adams beer has been running an ad just before the holiday, which includes a clever swipe at Budweiser. It ends with the line:

“We bow to no king.”

Bottom’s up!

July Update

As we are about to head into the heart of summer, I have started preparations to shoot my next video in July. Right now, I am looking into a cabin rental. The location will be key, someplace in the woods and hopefully with a lake nearby. The story is going revolve around a camping trip. And some pretty girls who lose all their clothes.

That is to say, I am planning to use two models for this production. This year, I have been alternating in between videos that feature only one girl. And it seems time for another more scripted story. Depending on the schedules of models and securing the location, I might be able to bring back some familiar faces.

That’s as much as I can reveal at the moment. Once I have some updated information, I’ll be sure to keep everyone posted.

In the meantime, here is a coy screenshot of Sativa after she’s been stripped completely naked. It is from a sort of promotional video I made for Monkey Business that is a tribute to her gorgeous bottom. The short clip can be downloaded here:

Stay tuned!

And something new. Not my own work, but shared with permission and she sends her love…
