If you were kind enough to make a remote cameo for us, we probably have it! But may not. There was a disk drive problem early on, and then I stupidly thought that files sent through services like YouSendIt stayed there until I felt like downloading them. Tip: They don't. Consequently, some links expired before I got the files. And since people put a lot of work into their cameos I want to double-check that I have yours.
So: There's a link to a photo album below. If you see yourself in a photo in the album, we have yours. Even if you sent multiple shots or did multiple characters, if we have one from your batch we have them all (though you can always write to make sure.)
If you don't see yourself in the album, we don't have you. So could you please contact us to re-send at firstname.lastname@example.org ? Also, sorry for losing it the first time!
Finally, if you never made a cameo but would like to be in the movie, there's still time! I've reposted the directions below but it's even simpler than that: We don't need all those shots anymore, we just need one shot of you watching a video on a phone, tablet or computer and then vomiting. Make one and you're in the film, guaranteed! You can make the other shots if you like, too, but the vomit ones are what we most need.
Broader update soon. Hello.
CAMEOS WE DO HAVE:
“GIRLS WILL BE GIRLS 2” REMOTE CAMEO GUIDLINES
There are two sequences in the film where we will use these:
- People around the world watching an internet video;
- People around the world watching TV.
Shoot it on whatever you have, your phone, a DSLR, a video camera. Anything that shoots video. Just please send the finished product as a digital file, not tape.
Internet Video Sequence
You are watching a viral internet video. At first you are entertained, but then it starts to get gross until finally it is so disgusting it makes you vomit.
You can be watching the video on any device that plays them -- a desktop or laptop computer, or a smart phone or tablet.
You can duck out of frame or pretend to vomit in a handy nearby receptacle, or just mime vomiting on camera and we will add vomit to the shot. Frankly those are the most fun.
You can be indoors or out and it can be day or night.
WIDE SHOT (head-to-toe) OF YOU ...watching the video. This shot should include the back or side of the computer or device you are watching.
CLOSE SHOT (mid-chest and higher) OF YOU ...watching the video. This shot can but does not need to include the computer or device. Any movement in this shot should match the movement in the wide shot.
CLOSE SHOT OF COMPUTER SCREEN OR DEVICE ...from your point of view. Showing the borders of the monitor, or your hand holding the device. It should be open to a video-playing application. It doesn’t matter what video is playing -- we will lay our video over it.
You are watching a television broadcast, either alone or with other people. The show you are watching first alarms you, then makes you think, then makes you sad, then makes you happy.
WIDE SHOT (head-to-toe) OF YOU (and if desired others) ...watching TV. This shot can but does not need to include the back or side of the TV you are watching.
CLOSE SHOT (mid-chest and higher) OF YOU (just you)...watching TV. This shot should not include the television you are watching.
CLOSE SHOT OF TELEVISION ...from your point of view. Showing the borders of the TV and a bit of the room.
