So Jesse and I drive to Torrance and pick up Austin and the lights, and we get onto the 405 and work through traffic approaching our turnoff to the 101. We call MODEL/ACTRESS who is cast to play in today's scene and she kinda freaks, expressing that the film is beneath her and implied nudity will ruin her career. She's a 'professional' actress, after all...
This is a model who posed nude in photographs for me a few months ago and was gonna be as covered as a dress, by a sheet, during a scene with dialogue as the action.
Am I missing something here???
So, our lead got on the phone to a girlfriend and we have a replacement! She's very willing to do the scene. Our wasted day will be caught up during a weekday shoot and will actually now turn out better!
We three landed at Johnny Rockets and BS'd about movies and chicks.
Ah yes, the joys of no-budget cinema!
