I’ll say this up front – she is NOT pretending to be stuck. I had to spend several minutes DIGGING her out once we were done. This shoot was absolutely fantastic 🙂
A keen Pokémon Go player, Ava is trying to get just a little bit closer to catch an Eevee. Juuuuust out of range, she takes her trusty Hunter boots and braves the boggy bank, not knowing the dangers.
The way she slowly sinks in over the tops of her boots, her cute white socks also gradually disappearing beneath the surface, is exhilarating to me. This was initially a private clip, just for me, but when it was done I felt it was too good not to share it 🙂
I forgot to give Ava advice on how best to struggle without actually getting dangerously stuck (in freezing temps) before we started filming, so… Ava got almost dangerously stuck. If I had not been there, she would have had to phone for help (although if I had not been there, she probably wouldn’t have been there either).
I had to spend several minutes digging her free with my bare hands afterwards, which will also be available in the BTS – which picks up immediately after the main video, wherein I hurriedly try to extract Ava and her little boots before she experiences too much cold.
It was a fantastic shoot, I found it phenomenally exciting, and we’ll be making more of these in future 🙂
We filmed this in December 2020, it was almost 0 celsius, (32F) and Ava sank almost up to her ass wearing wetlook leggings – A feat I believe deserves a round of applause 🙂
