We open on a beach in the South of France. Lolly and Nat are strolling up and down, scouting for ‘talent’. It’s boiling hot.
LOLLY: Look here’s one. She’s got her top off. She looks comfortable with her body?
NAT: She’s got such an amazing figure! OK. you say it.
LOLLY: No, you.
NAT: NO. I’ll help you out. But you’re good at this stuff.
Lolly shrugs and they both walk up to Isabella, a stunning Mediterranean sunbather.
LOLLY: Excuse me. Parlez vous Anglais? Sorry. I’m frightfully sorry to bother you. But we have to ask you something which will sound really strange.
BELLA: Hello, yes?
LOLLY: Don’t be offended, but we wondered if you were a model, and if you’d strip off in our ad for charity? it’s for MTV. We have no money and we have to film it today… It’s crazy what we’re asking you but you’d be helping us out…No, I can see what I’m asking is nonsense. Don’t worry…
BELLA: Sure, i’ll do it. When?
Another bit of beach. Nat and Lolly scouting for boys. You’ll have to imagine the rest as we’re running out of time on the computer. Apologies for the radio silence. We have been busy CREATING. It really is incredible what they expect you to do here with no budget, hardly any time and no cast members (except for the Dutch, who have their entourage of 40 fans!). But it’s been so much fun and we feel really lucky to be here! NEedless to say we pulled it off, we hired Bella, Olga and two lovely French guys, and they all did an amazing job. More to follow…
