Danielle is a new college student, an impressionable young woman fresh out of high school. Excited to begin her academic pursuits, she is contacted on the first day by Lisa, a sorority sister from Delta Nu. It appears that in order for Danielle to join the sorority, she must first pass a series of tests, which involves running around campus in gradually less articles of clothing. What will happen when she reaches the sports field completely bare!
In this video, I was glad to have the help of Danielle’s girlfriend, who has an un-credited role as the sorority sister. I think she did a good job considering I had put her on the spot at the start of the shoot, and finally someone happily agreed to be in a video and was a good sport about it. My original intention was to have Danielle receive her orders through text messages, or by notes left for her in various locations around campus. I think it worked better this way, having a real person for Danielle to respond to, and made it more realistic.
The college location itself had a lot of potential, which perhaps is a little unrealized in this production. Again, I was happy to at least find one hall open that we could use for interior scenes. But there were groups of people present, and even construction going on atop some buildings. (I don’t doubt an eagle-eyed worker might have gotten a pleasant view!) In addition, Danielle had to battle summer bugs in a few outdoor spots. This college is located near an airport, and we had to contend with some background noise as well. This was far from the easiest shoot I have managed, and if it seems a little rushed, it is because we started to feel like people were watching us and about to get nosy.
One of the key elements about how the story unfolds is that I am aware in my recent videos, I had cut to the nude scenes fairly quickly. In my last production, we implied the undressing at the lake and I was not able to show clothing removal. The same happened in Danielle’s video from March, during the mall scene. I had to fade in with her clothes already off. So this time, it was about the gradual removal of items, all seen on camera, going from skirt, sweater and stockings to full nude. I hope people enjoy the tease!
The flip side of course, is it means less time for Danielle spent on camera in a completely bare state, as that leads up to the climax. It’s not the first time I have paced a video this way. And I still think there are memorable moments of Danielle’s beauty to linger over.
Music for this production was provided by Peanuth O’Toole, who makes a number of great contributions. Starting with a track titled “College Grounds”, this is appropriate as a stately procession suggestive of pretentious academia and the boundless future in store for our lead character. I used this during the introduction, and a couple of transitional scenes. There are also some baseball themed tracks, like an organ playing to lead up to a charge and the crowd’s rush of excitement. This foreshadows events heading toward the athletic field. Peanuth prepared a couple of alternate versions that add in an electric guitar, and speeds up with the thrill of the chase.
Finally, the closing instrumental track is called “My Favorite Game”. Picking up on this sports and baseball theme, bass and drums are included to go along with the now fully distorted guitar. I think this builds to a fun finish like a crescendo after all the outrageous activity on a college campus.
The full video runs approximately 10 and a half minutes and is available at my clips4sale store.
