Here is a six minute clip of outtakes from my recent video with Briella Jaden. I included the part where I give her the line, “Am I not dressed appropriately?” Because I think her delivery, her diction and composure were perfect in that scene. Over all, I was impressed with Briella’s use of facial expressions and how she portrayed her character for this production. In general, her acting performance is quite good, and some of the comedic moments were classic stuff.
In the scene where Briella hops away like a bunny, I had adjusted it in the finished video to play in slow motion, which worked out great for the music accompaniment. For the outtakes, I show her hopping in real time.
Again, the music tracks used are from Peanuth O’Toole, his Easter Bunny theme at the beginning and then a reprise of “Guitar is in the Air”.
The end part of this clip is of course not from the full video, but something we did for fun after the shoot.

Outtakes: Easter Bunny Apprentice
Briella Jaden is applying for a job as an assistant to the Easter Bunny. She is excited and very enthusiastic at first, until learning that the position will require her to go around dressed in only a pair of cute bunny ears. Despite some hesitation, the shy young woman nevertheless agrees to these conditions. Then she is put through a series of embarrassing tests to determine if she is good enough to work for the Easter Bunny.
By my count, this production is the 10th video that Briella has appeared in. That places her in a tie with Danielle for the record. I think Briella’s performance in this story is very entertaining. Her character is playful and ditzy, yet she still shows signs of questioning what she’s gotten herself into. Most of all, Briella had a lot of fun putting the video together and I think it shows.
Interestingly, had the weather cooperated, we would have moved the scenes in the middle section to some outdoor area. While I always enjoy outside photography, it likely would not have stretched out as long. Also, her dog Dakota would have probably stayed behind and would not have been featured. This is another first for a Narrow-minded Production, working with a live animal. She was very well behaved. And Dakota was, too. So we made the most of the setting, and used the entire suite.
Of course this video is meant to be comical, and Peanuth O’ Toole’s opening music for the Easter Bunny has an appropriately cartoonish quality. At the story’s conclusion, leading into the end credits, I decided to reprise “Guitar is in the Air”, which was from the Spring 2013 video “In like a Lion, Out like a Lamb”, and is one of my favorite tracks Peanuth has composed.
The full production runs over 22 minutes and is available in two parts at my clips4sale store.
