During: Ryan says not as hindered as he was at first because you begin to focus on what you’re doing and just start to feel at ease. And pleasure! I cant say I felt anything other than pleasure; I may have felt a bit of tension when we began to start the video because it was so silent — the click of the camera flash on the first day was annoying at first, but it was still sound; you dont actually realize how silent it can be until the next day when its only video footage rolling and there’s no background noise going on. But in the end you eventually get used to it and get focused and locked into what you’re doing! We both agree that after we got over the ‘deafening silence’, it was amazing!
….not to mention we had a kick-ass bonus crew member in the sweet little dog that was at the appartment we filmed in! ;)
After, Ryan said he felt a sense of achievement, the feeling you get when you surprise yourself — Proud! I felt emotional because it was beautiful and I was quite tired, haha! But all round I think we just felt good, elated even! Like nothing could spoil the day.
It probably has effected our relationship in a way of having a hunger to do more films. We want to do more things like that. It also adds a cool little quirk to the relationship, like something unusual that we did together & are very proud of and certainly not afraid to talk about!
Tahlia and Ryan sent us this pic a few months after their shoot with us. Awww.
How we found the crew on the day of the shoot? AWESOME. It just felt like being with a bunch of mates, and whats better then getting naked with a bunch of mates? (edit – probably sipping hot tea, naked with mates… – Ryan)
Ryan and I both agree that the payment is spot on. Couldn’t complain about it, completely fair amount. Ryan said he would have done it for free! (edit – you had me at “lunch is paid for” & “I’ve brought Vegemite”… – Ryan [Ryan and Tahlia are Aussies – Ed])
