I was walking along the beach, minding my own business, when I saw a commotion in front of me. Well, actually the story goes like this: I was walking along the beach, minding my own business, when a very bright light nearly blinded me. Ever curious, I stepped closer. What were they doing?
Then I saw the huge camera, covered by a protective plastic bag and the star attraction – a beautiful girl dressed in a tight fitting red swimsuit. When I say tight, I mean really tight! It looked like a scene from a Baywatch film. I had to take a couple of photos! I have never seen people filming a movie.
The filming crew were busy rehearsing a scene where the girl had to perform CPR on a young man lying on the beach. She was really beautiful! One of the crew people spotted me and signalled for me to get lost.
I pretended to oblige but sat down and took out my telephoto lens. Now I know why I love this lens so much! I took a couple of photos but a chair blocked my view and I couldn`t get too close.
After about 15 minutes I lost interest.If it was Tom Hanks, I might have stayed longer! I was very curious about the bathing suit. It looked like a second skin. Later that evening I looked at my photos and saw huge paper-clips at the back of her bathing suit. Then I understood. They use it to pull the bathing suit tight and wholla! You have a super-tight, jaw-dropping effect.
I am not sure if this is for an upcoming International Movie, TV-series or local production. Either way, I saw something that I haven`t seen before and it entertained me for a while.
Have you ever seen them shooting a movie?
