Earlier this month I was talking about contacting some models I have not worked with in a while, to try and bring them back for another production. At the same time, I mentioned I would like to work with some new talent. With that in mind, I went about placing a casting call as well as reaching out to a few ladies, who it turns out are not in the area at the moment. Then, in the process of reviewing some possible candidates, I realized that the person who would be perfect for the story I had in mind, was Jackie Stevens.
So I contacted Jackie and asked if she could shoot this weekend. She said she would love to, and we talked about some details confirming the shoot. Then I had the idea that it could be great to team up Jackie with none other than Danielle. I believe Danielle could learn a lot from the more experienced, highly professional Jackie. Such a pairing would bring out the best in Danielle, in regards to her performance. It would be brilliant. She was all on board for it and we were set to shoot this Saturday.
However, the next day Jackie informed me that she messed up her calendar and that she was in fact going to be away this weekend. Unfortunately, this is the only time I had to use the location. She was very apologetic, and we are probably going to work again later in the summer. But for the meantime, I went about placing a second casting call to fill the other part opposite Danielle.
I was not satisfied with the response, and also running out of time to book something. Danielle told me she could get a friend to participate in the video again. That would be a big help, and I just had to adjust my storyline a little. Where I planned on Danielle being an antagonist for Jackie, I now changed it to a revenge plot. Danielle would be on the receiving end of embarrassment from the returning Elena.
The characters they play are not meant to be the same friends as their previous two videos. (I had been hesitant about asking to use Elena to avoid any confusion.) I will go into more details about the concept when I post the video. Danielle would still get to play the same part I had planned, except going from being fully in control, to having the tables turned on her.
Here are some sample pictures taken on a hot summer afternoon.
