It's taken me a while, but finally I'm ready to share the photos from the last day on our big location shoot in September, with new male switch Andrew Shada. If you want to catch up, here are my posts on previous days on this week-long spanking and filming extravaganza:
Andrew arrived the night before, in good time - a relief after our other new male perfomer had no-showed earlier in the week. Before long he and Tom were deep in conversation about mutual interests including LARP and Doctor Who. I was glad that the two of them were hitting it off, because they were scheduled to do several scenes together the next day.
Once we'd popped Andrew's spanking shoot cherry, I decided to give his bottom a break, and it was time for another first: this time, his first video spanking as a top!
This scene is called "First Date" and stars Andrew and Nimue as a young couple who hit it off over dinner. When they get back to Nimue's place she nervously takes the plunge and tells him something he ought to know ... she likes to be spanked! Andrew is new to the idea, but game, and she gently guides him through it, showing him how to spank her the way she likes. He quickly gets the hang of it.
This was a super sweet scene and Andrew did brilliantly, but afterwards he was pretty wiped. "Wow, acting is exhausting!" he told me in surprise. No kidding.
Still, Tom and I had just had a break from being in front of the camera, and we were both good to go. I decided to give Andrew a scene off while Tom, Nimue and I nipped out to take some photos in the garden, as a couple home from a rock gig who can't wait til they get into the house before indulging in some steamy spanking play. Nimue did an amazing job with the photos in this set, and I struggled to pick out just four to show you - I can't wait to share the rest.
While the rain was holding off, we stayed outdoors to film the opening scene of The Water Fight, which was released the week before last. Paternal M/M discipline, and wet, see-through clothing all round!
We took a break for lunch, after which it was time for the last stretch of filming: a sequence of three historical/military scenes inspired by our favourite Napoleonic War fiction: the Sharpe books by Bernard Cornwell, and the Flashman series by George Macdonald Fraser.
I didn't have the budget to source Napoleonic costumes for everyone, so this storyline is set in unspecified Olden Times. Major Harry Havelock of Her Majesty's Hussars is about to set out on a new campaign. He has been assigned a new Lieutenant, fresh from Sandhurst, commission bought with daddy's money, of course. The night before they move out, Havelock summons the young Lieutenant Shada to educate him in the privileges of an officer and a gentleman: wine, wenching, and whipping!
Andrew and Tom blew me away with their acting in this scene. I knew Tom was good, but with the historical military setup I seemed to accidentally have stumbled across Andrew's comfort zone, and he took to it like a duck to water. He gave as good as he got in the aristocratic military banter, including throwing in some authentic colloquialisms even I hadn't heard of, and his performance contributed hugely to story and character development. I'm telling you, this boy has talent, and I'm thrilled to have found a storyline that brought out his best. We will definitely be doing more of this.
Our story continued throughout the campaign, including some old-fashioned M/M military discipline administered by the Major, who has taken on something of a mentor role to the young Lieutenant.
The final scenario I'd scripted was an M/F scene between my character, the saucy wench trained up by Havelock who had been gifted to Lieutenant Shada at the start of the campaign, and Andrew's character. But when the time came Andrew was knackered. His last bottoming film of the day, a hard riding crop thrashing from the Major himself, had taken a lot out of him. He'd more than earned his keep already - three bottoming scenes and two topping ones is bloody impressive on your first ever spanking shoot. I told him to sit down and enjoy a well-earned rest; I was sure we could find something else to do.
Luckily, Nimue had been admiring Major Havelock from behind the camera, and was dying to do a scene with him. "Please can I get spanked by him?" she asked as we made strong cups of tea to power us through the fiftieth spanking scene of the week. "Please?" It was perfect timing, and resulted in an incredibly sexy consensual M/F scene. Nimue played a lively young camp follower who notices that the Major has given his wench away, and decides to take the initiative and present herself to him at night to enquire about the position. He's surprised, but likes what he sees, and decides to put her through her paces there and then.
These three scenes together sum up a huge part of my kink, and they are very close to my heart. It was a pleasure and a privilege to be able to bring them to life with three such talented performers. I'm really looking forward to releasing these, and if you like military, historical, sexy spanking dramas as much as I do, I think you're going to love them.
