Happy Independence Day

In lieu of having a new photo ready in time for the Fourth of July, I went back and decided to re-post this photo of Danielle from five years ago. It was August of 2013, after we finished shooting the video “Higher Education”. She looks so cute in her summer dress and flip flops, giving a nice patriotic salute in front of a flag pole on a college campus. I would have liked to capture the flag for better context of the scenery, but it was raised very high, and I could only stand so far away while keeping Danielle and her gorgeous smile in frame.

This Independence Day, we salute all lovers of life and liberty!

 

Quote of the Day

“An umbrella for Briella…”
~ Briella Jaden in Anthology

We are closing in on a year since my last video with Briella Jaden. I miss her lots. Going back to review her body of work with Narrow-minded Productions, I had been meaning to highlight this cute quip from the video called “Anthology” we worked on in February of 2016.

This was the title without a specific storyline, but rather a collection of short and silly situations. Here, Briella plays the part to perfection of a clueless blonde who has technical difficulties operating a simple umbrella. It turns out, this two minute sequence is a fun bit of performance that can stand on its own, culminating in the young lady leaving the room completely naked holding only the umbrella. And a quick dash back, when she hears someone coming! Throughout her scene, there are a number of entertaining lines and slapstick comedy, which makes this a joy to watch.

I also want to note, for anyone curious, even when I do not produce a new video for a long time, I am still selling clips every day. June in fact has been a very good month, the best of 2018 so far. That bodes well for me doing something next month. I’ve mentioned before that since last year, I have been engrossed in other business related projects that has made it difficult for me to set aside time to schedule a shoot and all that is involved with selecting a new model to work with. If Briella makes plans to visit New York again, you can bet we will shoot something in a heartbeat.

Until then, stay tuned!

 

May Update

Well, I tried, folks. I was ready to shoot a new video last weekend and had reached out to a couple of models I wanted to work with, based on their local availability. One is very experienced who I discovered she had done some custom clips in the style of embarrassed stripping and nudity. However, it is possible she is no longer active since there was no easy way to contact her. I found an e-mail address from a few years ago and sent a message, but have not received a reply.

I would be interested if anyone happens to come across new material from Nikki Lee Young, let me know! I might be able to reach out to the producer. If you do a search under the appropriate category, you might find some previews of her ENF clips.

With that failing, I did contact a local model who is supposed to live near by. She also has not responded, but if she does, I could have a new lady to work with. What I have refrained from is posting a general casting call. In the past, I usually end up getting traveling models who can be difficult to arrange shoot locations. And you also never know who you are going to get, working for the first time. Sometimes I’ve been lucky, sometimes not so much.

For those wondering, after our video last summer, Briella had to move back down to Florida. That is one of the main reasons productions came to a stop, as she had been a reliable and dependable model I could always count on to create something fun. Over the years, I’ve been fortunate in connecting with amazing talent. And then it is usually the models, whether Amy or Jackie, or even Sativa who contacted me to let me know they wanted to shoot again.

In many ways this feels like going back to square one. If anyone has a favorite model they would like to see in a Narrow-minded Production, and if they cover the northeast region of the US, I’d be happy to start making inquiries. I sometimes think I have had the pleasure of dealing with the best in this business already.

In other news, this first week of May is the anniversary of when we started shooting the film “Babysitting Without a Net.” Thirteen years ago! Time goes by fast.

Stay tuned!

 

Happy New Year

I wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a belated Happy New Year for 2018.

We have had some bitter cold weather up here, and just dealt with a blizzard, which was not even the first snowfall of the season. The situation right now is a good example of why productions slowed down last year. I have reached the stage where I am not going to try to set something up for a video under less than ideal conditions, special circumstances notwithstanding. And while we certainly had nice weather the rest of last summer and into the fall, I was also involved in non-related business projects that made the scheduling of photography difficult.

At this point, I’m sure I am going to wait for the spring, for the snow to melt and warmer temperatures to arrive. It does not bother me if I reduce my schedule to working a few times in the spring and early summer. Over the past thirteen years, these videos have been a lot of fun and I enjoy the collection of titles that has been put together. I’ve met some amazing people along the way and created many good memories.

Having said that, one of my objectives for the new year will be to shoot with a new model. I was recently reviewing the work of one young lady, and will try to see if she is still available in my area. Again, I would like to be able to include something outdoors, but I would not rule out a February event.

The bottom line is that I am not finished producing new videos, not at all. Even if it is not as many in the course of the year, I will still make the most of these opportunities.

Until then, stay tuned!

Christmas Collection

Similar to Halloween, over the years I have produced a number of videos that were themed for Christmas.

It goes back to December of 2006, when I worked with Jade Indica for the first time, and also tried shooting a complete story, rather than separate vignettes. This would become the production known as Weekend at the Office. Although the final released version used a full musical score instead of spoken dialogue, it was specifically scripted about a girl who has to work over the holiday weekend. The scenario was further made authentic by the various Christmas decorations that are placed around the office. And the music soundtrack was the final movement from Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, which is often associated with this season.

Weekend at the Office

The next Christmas video I would make happened in 2009, when I brought Jordana Leigh back for the second time. In one of my longest productions, running at 27 minutes, Holiday Hotline captures both the commercial aspect as well as the spirit of giving when her character boxes up all her clothes for a customer who calls into her department. Of course, her motivations were about trying to win a bonus for the most sales, so naturally Jordana’s character ends up embarrassed.

Holiday Hotline

I would go on to shoot other videos during the months of December, but not always featuring a holiday theme. And there have been a few short promotional clips wishing everyone a seasonal greeting. But the next time I would set out to do a Christmas story would not be until 2013. After working together with Danielle throughout the year, we wrapped things up with a fun little production. It was going to be another short advertising clip, but ended up running about 4 minutes, so it takes its place among these other videos. I later released a wide-screen version to my store.

NMP Christmas 2013

Finally, last year I produced a video called An Exchange of Gifts featuring Briella Jaden. This one was interesting in that it was treated as a sequel to the much shorter clip we did in 2015 introducing Santa’s Little Helper. The 2016 video has Briella starting out in a great black dress, white stockings and Santa hat, only to give it all (except the hat) to her stuffed bear friend after he surprises her with a generous present.

An Exchange of Gifts

Enjoy!

 

November Report

It’s the beginning of the month, and I wanted to post an update about what is going on. A lot of people have been waiting patiently for the next video. Normally, I don’t like to get into personal stuff. Right now, I have some family business that needs to be attended to. The fact is, I have not had time to concentrate on setting up a shoot, letting alone think about new locations and story ideas.

Now I still would not hesitate to do something, anything, if one of our favorites happened to return to the area and were looking to work on a project. But aside from that, the next option would be to start casting for a new model, which I have wanted to do at some point anyway. Again, that takes time to come up with a scenario and consideration for the type of character I would be looking for.

I would say there is a chance I will plan a video for the holidays. Need to see how things go over the next few weeks.
Until then,

Stay tuned!

 

Halloween Retrospective

Over the years, I have produced a catalogue of videos themed for Halloween. This month, I decided to look back at those seasonal titles.

It started back in 2008, with Sativa Verte performing as part of the holiday farce, what would become a trilogy of productions, simply called “Trick or Treat”. The underlying concept involved the cartoonish Grimble Gang playing pranks, having their unique brand of fun, and ultimately leaving the leading lady without clothes. For this particular story, Sativa arrives at the wrong house, thinking it was a therapist’s office. She is in for a real treat, when she runs into the antics of the Grimbles.

Trick or Treat

The following year, I immediately planned a sequel, although this time it would bring Jordana Leigh into the spotlight. The result was an 18 minute romp that had her character lose her candy when visiting the Grimble house, and then lose her clothes piece by piece as she sought to get it all back. Another thread that is weaved through the Trick or Treat videos, was the use of J.S. Bach’s recognizable Toccata and Fugue in D minor for a running music soundtrack.

Trick or Treat II

In 2011, I was scheduled to work with Briella Jaden for the first time, and it happened to be just in time for Halloween. So we did a silly video involving some supernatural hijinx, where her clothes started to disappear from her body, without Briella noticing. To add to the suspense, her character was getting herself ready to leave for a party, and she in fact exits her apartment with nothing but a plastic pumpkin bucket. Although the majority of the story unfolds in the apartment location, the final scene does take place in a laundry facility.

The Haunted Closet

The third installment of the Trick or Treat series came about in 2012. In this version, the Grimble Gang are cast as friends of Monique at a party. After a few drinks and some coaxing, they convince the long-haired brunette to go outside trick or treating completely nude. This video has the distinction of being the first Halloween production to capture night time outdoor photography.

Trick or Treat III

By the end of 2013, I was working steadily with Danielle. So of course, when October rolled around, we had to make a special holiday video. The music and sound effects provided by Peanuth O’Toole really enhance this one, creating the right atmosphere. Also featuring Danielle’s friend Elena, this is the only Halloween storyline that features two models. The plot device of Danielle getting undressed to put her clothes in the wash interestingly marks the second time one of these videos involved a laundry scene.

Spirit of the Night

Finally, I was delighted to work with Jackie Stevens back in the Fall of 2014, and she makes a delicious big-bottomed witch trying to impress her local coven. After mixing some potions, things don’t exactly go as she planned, causing all her clothes to disappear except for her pointy hat. Jackie’s improvisation and treatment of the scenario is absolutely classic.

The Witching Hour

 

On a side note, I had skipped listing a video in 2010, but in fact I did shoot with Amy Starr at the end of October that year. The location was the same used as the first two Trick or Treat productions, and the story did involve her character’s perils. But arranged at the last minute, I did not give it the necessary consideration to make it a true Halloween themed event.
