Outtakes Video: Substitute Teacher

When I put together my preview clip for Little Sister back in May, I mentioned how I had some extra time with Sandra before the shoot and took the opportunity to capture a bonus video. I also thought that getting her comfortable and interacting without her clothes on helped her deliver a stronger performance. So I wanted to try this again for our video, Substitute Teacher. Because it was scheduled last minute, Sandra did not have time to iron her blouse. No problem, I told her to do it when her arrived at the room. The only catch, I instructed her to first remove everything she was wearing.

So, the beginning of this outtakes video has me asking Sandra to strip fully nude, which is quite fun. There is nothing quite like watching a beautiful naked woman do the ironing. I enjoyed the back and forth verbal exchanges, and tried some fun camera angles. While Sandra is obviously comfortable with her own nudity, I wanted to get her into a more embarrassed or shy state of mind.

Also included in this video are some of the takes when her character runs up to the doors of the high school. Her first attempt was near perfect, but Sandra was wearing her sunglasses. She thought she had already removed them, and wanted to shoot the scene again. Looking back, it would not have mattered, because she does indeed arrive at the school and get out of the car with her sunglasses. We did a couple of takes, once because she dropped her glasses in the process. I was a little frustrated, but my anxiety was only because of shooting this in a visible, public location. Sandra is a good sport and a real trooper.

The scene on the side of the school building when she tries another entrance had a few jump cuts, because I saw in postproduction that I had captured my own reflection in those shiny glass windows. Here in the outtakes I have added such a deleted part. Then we move further away toward the fence along the baseball field. This is when we were caught by security, and it was eagle-eyed Sandra who was quick to realize the situation. I captured her reaction, which was thankfully early enough to prevent us from going too far. It’s possible I would have had more trouble if she had been already nude.

As I talked about in the full video post, we moved to a different location to continue the school scenes. Here I have some outtakes as she is undressing and when we discuss how to handle her panties coming off and being snagged on the wooden bleachers. Regrettably, the discovery by more guys from the old folks home happened after I shot the scene and had turned off my camera. This clip ends with us back in the room, and me trying to coax Sandra into acting more sensual for the story climax.

The running time of the outtakes video is approximately 6 minutes. It can be downloaded at the link below.


Outtakes – Substitute Teacher



Substitute Teacher

In this story, Sandra plays the character of Sandra Berrybush (a distant relation) who is a substitute teacher called by a school early one morning, to cover classes. She is a little disorientated as she rushes to get herself prepared, wanting to make a good impression and not be late. However, her confusion continues as she arrives at the high school only to find the doors locked. In the process of searching for a way inside, Sandra rips her skirt. The misfortune escalates as the rest of her clothes get snagged and must be left behind until she is bare-assed naked. Finally, the young woman decides to return home where she reflects on the day’s events and finds it was kind of exciting after all.

The outdoor scenes of the video were shot on location at two different school properties. This presented the usual challenges, although I was delighted at first when there were no other vehicles in the parking lot. Thinking we had the area around the building all to ourselves, I had hoped to shoot out the whole thing at the high school. But after Sandra loses her skirt, we were preparing to start the next sequence when she noticed someone watching us. In fact there were two security guards who came out and I had to quickly move on to a new location. The initial realization we were caught, I managed to capture on camera, and will post in the outtakes video.

For anyone who is wondering, the best way to handle such circumstance I believe is to avoid a confrontation. While I could stay and argue that we were not doing anything wrong, that other members of the community are allowed to use school property for bike riding or walking their dogs, I believe the best course of action is to just leave without making a scene. It’s too bad, because there was a dugout for the baseball field I wanted to use in the video.

After talking to Sandra in the car, she said she really wanted to keep going and finish the production. So we drove down the road to where there was a middle school, which also seemed like it was deserted on this Saturday afternoon. We had already recorded the arrival and scenery at the high school. What I was looking to do was continue along the fenced sports field. Conveniently, this school had a baseball diamond with bleachers and a chain-link backstop. From here, Sandra’s character would lose her blouse and ultimately her childish Hello Kitty panties.

The side of the middle school we were on was in close proximity to some kind of adult care community. Once Sandra was nude, we were shooting the scene around the batting cage when she saw some old people come out of their homes. I also saw a couple of them, and decided it was time to head back home. Not wanting to press our luck further, I helped Sandra collect her clothes and started for the car. She told me she saw like five old guys start walking in our direction and they appeared upset. Looking back on it all, it does sound pretty hilarious. I wish I had gotten that on camera.

One of the things I liked about this video is that back in high school, one can remember occasionally having a substitute teacher who was an attractive young woman. Sandra looks gorgeous in her purple blouse and tight black skirt, just like the kind of woman students would fantasize about seeing naked. And that’s exactly what happens! I also want to point out this is the first video Sandra has performed by herself. Going solo is always a challenge for an actress, and I think she handled the subject matter well enough.

For the music soundtrack, Peanuth O’Toole provides two pieces called “Substitute Forlorn”. One is an acoustic version, with Spanish style guitar over a cool bass line. I use this for the introduction, and in a couple of places where Sandra is walking around or I needed some extra background sound design. Then there is a version with electric guitar and a funky beat. This is heard for the first time when Sandra is back in her room, and starts to enjoy herself reliving the embarrassing memories. I cut to this track again for the end credits.

The full video runs just under 12 minutes and is available at my clips4sale store.






Sandra in September

I was supposed to shoot a new video with Sativa today. Unfortunately, she contacted me early in the morning saying she was having, um, women’s issues. This is the first time we have ever had to cancel, so I cannot fault her if she was not feeling well. Nevertheless, the show must go on!

Right away, I reached out to Sandra, who is always eager to shoot. We made some hasty arrangements after checking the train schedule, and soon she was on her way. I already had a room booked, which I was going to use as a starting point early in the morning. Because of the change of plans, it only bumped things up by a couple of hours.

The story of the shoot would take us to a couple of outdoor school locations. Everything was going well at first, but eventually our luck ran out. We did get some nice scenes in, but we were caught twice and I had to pack things up before I could take any teasing pictures with my still camera. I will have a few good screenshots to share when I post the video. Yes, Sandra does get fully naked on school property, by the bleachers of a ball field.

For now, here are a handful of photos taken in the relative privacy of our room, except for the one fully dressed shot outside the building. Sandra’s hair was worn straight today, rather than her usual waves and curls. I thought it was a nice contrast with her previous look, and I actually enjoy a woman with long straight dark hair.

Stay tuned!






September Update

What a difference a year makes!

Twelve months ago this past weekend, I was picking up Sativa from the airport as she returned to the area from Los Angeles. But that had been only a temporary working visit. Making the most of the opportunity, we shot two videos in the next thirty days, including Miss Me Yet? and Mystery Shopper. We had a lot of fun and of course kept in touch over the rest of the year and into 2013.

Now this summer, Sativa has traveled back to the area doing more work along the East Coast. This allowed me to shoot with her in July. But also, because she is more easily accessible, I don’t have to squeeze productions into a short timeframe. Nevertheless, I think this month would be excellent to bring her back in another video.

Earlier in August I had made a comment about Briella Jaden contacting me about putting together a project. However, sometimes when plans are made early, by the time the calendar flips over, scheduling might not look as promising as it did at the time. She is supposed to be coming back to my area the first week of September. If there is a chance we can still shoot, I would certainly be interested. A Sativa and Briella video? That sounds tempting although it would be the first time these ladies have worked together. But anything is possible, and who knows what surprises might be in store for this month!

I would like to mention that August was really fantastic for Narrow-minded Productions. It was the most successful month of 2013, so far, and I am grateful for everyone’s support. Much of the interest was driven by the release of Bare in Park at the end of July, and also Higher Education, which has been received well. In fact, according to WordPress blog stats, the day I posted about my last video with Danielle was one of the most active days in terms of hits. Coinciding with this traffic spike, the month of August has received the most hits this year, even more than last September, ironically enough.

I still have work to do before we close out this year, so thanks again to everybody who reads and leaves comments.

Stay tuned!
