I spent Sunday afternoon at the beach with Jackie Stevens and we shot a new video.
This one should be interesting as the whole story takes place outdoors, without any interior scenes. Besides the beach front location, which is central to the premise, we found some other interesting backdrops to incorporate.
It was a crowded summer day, but I think we came up with something fun. This also marks the furthest I have driven out for a project, as I was meeting Jackie closer to her area. One of the things important to my productions is environmental storytelling, in other words developing ideas, characters or concepts based on the setting. When I am using a new location for the first time, one I am not familiar with, there is more improvisation. Jackie and I brainstormed once we were on the park grounds, and the result should be a pretty cute scenario.
She is wearing her hair up for this one, again because it was so warm, and she would end up getting wet.
Here are a half a dozen still photos taken over the course of the shoot.
