An Angel Lost In The Forest, Drowning In The Sea
This was most likely the longest Tuesday I will ever experience in my entire life. I woke up for my job which started at 6 am, we drove to a forest area thirty minutes away and shot from 7-11. The job was a video for Larc-En-Ciel, a famous Japanese band. I was put in a white dress for the day, but during this part I had to walk through various spots in the forest acting like a lost and confused angel. Then when we got all the shots, we went out into an open field and they set up three mattresses and filmed me falling backwards into them. That's when we picked up and moved onto the swimming scenes. When the video is put together, you'll see me fainting and falling backwards and falling deep into the sea. We shot in the pool from 12-7, about 15 different scenes. It was a long shoot, but tons of fun. In the end, I was saved by sinking to the very bottom and my random-male-savior diving in and bringing back to the top. After we finished, we drove an hour away to a real studio where we did some final shots and finished up around 1. Needless to say I was beyond ready to be home and asleep.
