Outtakes Video: Roll of the Dice

Only a three and a half minute for this clip of outtakes. That’s because once we were outside, I was able to use most of the raw video for the finished production, without a lot of extraneous material. Especially when we crossed the narrow bridge in the woods. Briella was keeping in motion, acting nervous both in character and for real, even as I was giving her directions. It was better to just drop the sound, and edit in the bird sound effects for those parts, which blends in with the natural ambience anyway.

What I do include here at the beginning of the shoot, is how working from behind the low table where we rolled the dice was somewhat of a challenge. The moment I gave up on using the tripod was after Briella makes her first throw. It was difficult to swing the camera down to show the results, in that position.

One of the things I liked was how the turns we took played out authentically, and I beat her in each round, without needing to redo any takes. When the dice fell off the table, that just added a nice touch, to weigh the odds further against Briella. The idea behind the story concept was that her character would lose badly, overwhelmingly, adding to her embarrassment and willing to go along with the forfeit.

There is an extra moment I captured here when Briella was putting on her running shoes to go out. They apparently fit tightly, and it took longer for her to get the laces tied up. I cut this scene down in the finished video, but I thought it was kind of adorable to watch.

Another thing I should mention, her dog Dakota is very well behaved, and I enjoyed featuring as a part of the background scenery in the apartment setting. But it was an after the fact realization that while I was focused on Briella, and trying to maintain continuity of the frames, sometimes Dakota would move her head or switch positions. This added an extra challenge to the post production, and is one of the reasons for the rough cuts in the first part.

The most important aspect for me is to show Briella laughing and having a good time. She really is a lot of fun to work with, and these outtakes demonstrate that quality. For the music, I used Peanuth O’Toole’s new track made for this production “Call of the Nymph” at the start and finish.

Roll of the Dice

In this video, Briella Jaden takes on her friend in a game of dice. She has not had much success in their previous matches, but this time the young woman feels she is up to the challenge. However, things don’t exactly go her way and Briella soon finds herself paying a penalty. Her friend moves things to an outdoor location as the forfeit plays out with the ponytailed blonde going for a run. When they progress further along the trail, she ends up losing more of her clothes as a result of the dice game. How long can she stand this embarrassing turn of events?

Early on in this shoot, I abandoned the tripod, and decided to freehand the camera. This of course allows for easier movement, and some lovely angles of our leading lady. I think Briella looks adorable, and watch for the subtle changes in her expressions. She can go from a grin and giggle, to her face dropping in concern as her character grows more anxious. Typical of some of our previous productions, I had to feed her a lot of dialogue to keep the story moving, but her adlibs and her own improvisations are great.

The fun really begins once we were outside. I think it feels less confined, and some of the reluctance about taking off her clothes is quite genuine. Briella has always agreed to go along with scenes in public locations, but she is truly concerned about getting caught and in trouble. At the same time, she admits to find it exciting, which is a quality I love about her. We managed along the trails well enough. There was one person who walked past us at one point, but it was just after Briella had her covering back on. It was a close call, I kept teasing her.

Because of the need to establish the premise of the game and build up to the forfeit, the first half of the video runs longer. I think it is worth watching how the whole episode develops, even though the more enjoyable parts pick up in the latter half.

For the music, Peanuth O’Toole provides a new track titled “Call of the Nymph”, which is used for the opening of the production. In the end, I decided to reprise the one Peanuth made last summer called “Beach Bum”. It uses a voice over of Sandra making sounds like she is being pleasured, and that fits with the general mood by the close of this video.

The full video is a little over 20 minutes, and is divided into two parts available at my clips4sale store.

 

Outtakes Video: Easter Bunny Apprentice

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

Enjoy!

 

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.

 

Bonus Briella Clip

I have put together a 2 minute extra clip of Briella. Think of it like a stocking stuffer!

This starts with a take I did not use in our recent video. One reason was because I really was trying to trim down the running time to keep the full production contained in one video file. But she also did sort of flub the line. This happens right after she has finished taking off her clothes. Her line was supposed to be “So, what do you want to do now?” I suppose that can be a bit of a tongue-twister, but Briella’s take here is still cute.

From there, we transition to an enjoyable view of the young lady laying in bed, and I have a new track by Peanuth O’Toole called “Silent Nude” to play in the background. I also used his original “Santa’s Little Helper” from last year to take us through the rest of the clip.

One element that I think any kind of photography fails to capture is how soft Briella is. She is really sweet and pretty, and that’s what I wanted to showcase.

I also found a back way into uploading images in the old format. So you can view the previous two posts and click on the picture to get much larger sizes.

An Exchange of Gifts

I know it’s been a while since my last production. Sorry to keep you waiting, complicated business!

In this video, Briella Jaden is a Christmas elf who visits Santa’s Little Helper. She is surprised, when he gives her a present, and genuinely grateful for the act of kindness. But then Briella feels a little guilty, because she did not bring a gift of her own. No problem, her friend says that she can be unwrapped… or rather, Briella can just give some of her clothes. After she ends up completely naked, they break out the mistletoe.

The idea behind this story is a continuation of last year’s Christmas clip. For those who would like to review it again, or missed it the first time, you can download the file here:

Santa’s Little Helper

Now for this one, although I wanted to keep it simple, it ended up stretching longer than I expected. Again, mostly because Briella has mastered the art of the slow strip tease. I think she also brings a combination of reluctance, and resignation to going along with the game. There is a nice range of emotion on display, and more importantly, it’s a fun little fantasy.

For the music in this video, Peanuth O’Toole has built upon last year’s track of the same title, “Santa’s Little Helper”. Only in the new extended version, the piece transitions into high energy with drums, bass and guitar. I really enjoyed how it came out.

Instead of screenshots from the finished video, I am posting the still photos that I took when I worked with Briella a few weeks ago.

The full production runs just under 14 minutes and is available at my clips4sale store.

Outtakes Video: Anything for a Raise

There was a special occasion this past week. October 3 was the anniversary of the first time I worked with Briella Jaden, back in 2011.

I was able to put together a four minute clip of outtakes from my most recent video with the lovely young lady.

When I started to come up with an idea for this production, knowing the location we would be using, I tried to think of a story that would involve an embarrassing strip. It would be logical to make Briella the employer seeking a raise for herself, and she takes off her clothes in the attempt to persuade her boss. But I wanted to do something different. Briella has played a lot of characters, from student to secretary to hapless reporter. However, she has never been a wife. This aspect allowed for the additional wrinkle of her husband putting her up to this, and adds and extra dimension to her character.

When we started the opening scene, Briella was improvising and naturally acted like she was preparing dinner for the boss invited to her home. This take was not used, because in fact I needed her to be at the home of the boss in order for the story to work. Also, the meal was already finished, sort of leading into the moment of now let’s get down to business.

There was another part, where she was doing a great job justifying the reasons for giving her husband a raise. Until she hit a mental block. It’s funny, because I knew exactly what she was thinking but she just failed to articulate the word until I gave her a nudge.

After that, she was off and running. Most of this clip is me providing direction or lines for Briella. Her delivery was perfect so there were not many slip ups or need to reshoot a scene. The part when she first gets back in the car is fun, as she talks about being both nervous and enjoying the outside nudity.

The music used at the beginning and end of these outtakes is from Peanuth O’Toole’s very cool track called “Nude Little Wife”. The video file can be downloaded at the link below:
