2004 10 25 - Teacher's Pet

How I got to be in this position is a real long story.

I few years ago I took a course in videography and have kept in touch with George the teacher.
As a matter of fact, George is the driving force behind SESSIONS TV - But I'll get to that some other time.

George is currently teaching a class at the Toronto Film College and has asked me to help him with a couple of classes.
That's right ladies and gentlemen, Paul Buceta is a 'Kiss Ass" student.

Anyhow, today's class included shooting a few scenes from a script. When asked if I would mind being the actor I jumped at the chance. They also asked me if I knew an actress that might be interested in joining us.

"Does a bear S*#t in the woods?"

I immediately got on the phone with a colleague of mine which I hadn't seen in too long - Larisa.

She, like me, is up for new and fun things all the time, "Count me in!"

Aside: When I first met Larisa, she was just getting into modeling. She mentioned she was kinda interested in photography as well. I remember telling her to get a site and take her modeling and photography to the next level. Hell, I even offered to help.
Little did I know she would be some serious competition for me. (And better looking too).
You can see her SESSIONS here.

Back to the story.

Part way into the shoot we decided to break for lunch. During this time she was commenting on how she was enjoying the videos I was adding to my site.
When asked if she wanted to be in one she said, "Absolutely!"

I reach into my back pack, pull out my digital camera, (the same one I make most of my videos with) and point it in her direction.

This is what I get.

Larisa Stori
Is this how all models eat?

But seriously, I really had a great time with her today and we agreed to work on some stuff together, so be sure to keep an eye out for that.

You know, I'll make up any reason to hang out with Larisa.
