Lights camera action!

We got a call from Jessica's modeling agency last Thursday that she'd been booked (hired) for a commercial. When we got to the studio yesterday, we found out it wasn't actually a commercial but a short film to publicize the new airport in Dubai, and would only be shown over in Dubai. Bummer.

Still it was pretty cool. The scenes she had to shoot (nonspeaking) were her and her little "brother" waiting in the airport, watching the planes, riding in a car, walking down a hallway with her "mother" and then going to greet her "father" when he arrived home from a trip. It was all done with "green screen" so they had to do a lot of pretending that things were there that weren't.

She did really well! It was kind of a long day, from 8am to 2pm. She took direction pretty well and wasn't shy at all. Plus she got a new toy and a new red dress (with matching dollie dress for baby doll Cute) out of it. Oh, and they're paying her too. Not bad for a day's work.

I have the email address of one of the people working on the project so hopefully we'll be able to get a copy of it or somehow see a copy of it.

Pictures to follow. Blurry, because no flash allowed. = )

Next stop: Hollywood?

Here's a link to some pictures:

That's pretty awesome! I'm glad she's having a good time with it now! We already know she's a glorious actress... ;o)
