I have to say, I think I prefer this location for these pat downs. I am not quite sure why. Maybe it is it is because such a location was where I did the first of these. Certainly, it has a nice area for doing them in. Though the other locations are brighter, likely because of the white walls, I think the darker tones of this location lends itself to the subject matter. You don’t think of bright white, clean walls when you think of a third-world dictatorship (right or wrong).
Ok, enough random musings. As these particular videos are pretty straightforward – seeing one gives you a pretty good idea of what to expect (with some exceptions) I don’t have too much to add. I saw a comment on the previous one about how it is nice to see women in powerful clothes, like business clothes, stripped of their dignity. With that in mind, I have done a bunch of variations on this theme with just such a thing in mind. And soon I will be doing a few more. Also, it is a bit of a tease to mention this, since it will take some time for all of these to be released, but there are some videos with some of that theme that are not even strip search videos, but are a different sort of scenario altogether, including several in a new mini series. Enough teasing now, on to this video. As always, feedback is welcome and appreciated!

These Reporter series clips really speak for themselves at this point. It is interesting to see how they evolved. Honestly, I did the first ones mainly because I had a shoot where a model didn’t show up (an all-too-often occurrance) and so I could not do what I had planned, and needed to come up with something I could do with just two models. The first two were part of an interrelated storyline, which is something I have thought about doing again, but haven’t yet simply because I tend not to have time and have so many other storylines I’d like to do in a given shoot. It may amaze some to learn just how long some of these clips take to shoot. These aren’t just turning the camera on and doing a straight shot of five or ten minutes for a clip (like generally most clips are). They involve lots of shots, angles, sometimes multiple takes, and so on, more like making a real movie. I think that makes them come out so much better, and more interesting, than most clips one buys, but it takes time, and lots of money (given the number of models and the fact that only a handful can be made in a day). But now I greatly digress…
These clips are nice in that they are a format and storyline I am very familiar with, that can be done relatively quickly, and I know what shots I want to do with them, having done so many. Some models I have shot with a lot also are very familiar with them and have played the guard role many times, which is also nice, as I don’t need to explain it to them. Some are quite good at it. So now, I am looking for feedback – about all of these clips. What do you like about them? What shots and angles do you like? What would you like to see more of? What haven’t you seen that you would like to see? Would you like more integrated into a larger storyline, like the first? I am always looking for feedback. It still amazes me that I get so little… one can always post anonymously. Here is your chance to give some input.
