The third and final day of filming “The Schiller Guide” consisted solely of re-shoots including Scene 06c – Static Posing Intro with an improved, softer lighting scheme; Scene 10c – Hands Lesson, but with JoEllen wearing bangle bracelets this time (thank God!); and Scene 07e – Wet Hair Lizzie, minus the wet hair.
For this, the 12th movie from The Factory, the rear nook of the Candy Eye soundstage had been converted into our accessories arsenal. A peek at its main table reveals but some of our glamorous goodies. And although we are curators of the midwest’s largest collection of 70’s era “Jewess sunglasses”, sadly, only but one or two made their appearance on screen for this production.
One of our favorite sections from the first day of shooting involved the models whipping their hairy heads luxuriously towards the camera all Pantene ProV-like. So on our final day, we stocked up on promotional photos demonstrating this technique and are including a blurry, blooper-y reject for now. The perfect, polished glory of what industry insiders refer to as “The Paski Spin” will be revealed at a later date, many times over.
Okay, so…having made an outrageous fortune off our blockbuster Mallorys movie, The Factory founders were tempted to flitter away their stash of Candy Eye cash on Prada pajamas or perhaps a Porsche – but decided instead to re-invest their money in the future of The Factory and purchase something we had long dreamed of owning: The 2nd most expensive steamer that Target offers – the 65 dollar one!
Armed at last with this mid-priced marvel, never will the King and Queen of Candy Eye have to worry about wrinkled trench coats or crumpled pencil skirts in their films ever again. Here, Tina and JoEllen demonstrate the glory of the Official Factory Steamer, as they magically mist the kinks out of Allison’s costume for scene 08c – Show Pony Posing.
With 11 scenes re-shot in under 4 hours, we concluded principal photography for “The Schiller Guide” movie at 9:30 on a Monday night. In Hollywood they say, “That’s a Wrap!” In Factory City however, William instead shouts, “Who are you and how long will you last?” And then the cast shrieks back the Name of the movie at him, followed by the word Girls, and then the word Forever.
Sounds tricky, but look how slick ‘n simple it actually is in execution.
William: Hey ladies! Who are you and how long will you last?
Jo, Tina, Lizzie, & Allison: We’re The Schiller Guide girls…Forever!
And then we all dance around like twits for two minutes. On film, of course – cause otherwise, what would be the point?
