a philosophy of life by diego (or diego and his audition tape for @Bruce_Weber)

so Diego called us (of course, we speak “dog”, darlings, we grew up in England) and said:

“Richard just showed me ‘A Letter To True’ made by that nice photographer who wears the bandana”

Bruce Weber?”

“That’s the one.”

“Did you enjoy it?”

“Very much – in fact I’d like you to shoot an audition tape for me so I can be in his next movie.”

“Oh, absolutely – delighted to do so.”

“One more thing…..”

“Yes, Diego?”

“He shoots a lot in black and white and it’s kinda arty and has a strong message, can you do that?”

*lookstocamera*

“Oh, yes. With your looks and our talent, we can do an excellent audition tape for Mr. Weber, darling Diego.”

“great – Richard and I will see you on Sunday – we’ll put the coffee on.”

beautiful.

so here’s what we did….

 

after the shoot we let diego look through the Rushes and he turned to us and said, with a small almost winsome smile –

“I like it.”

Relief.
