This MetArt movie is a simple behind-the-scenes record of a still photo shoot. There are a few quick edits and a couple of little technical tricks to add some visual “snap” to the proceedings, but is essentially a brief documentary. As such, it is somewhat limited. I say this because the set – a saddle sitting in front of a stable and the stable’s equine resident – is somewhat static. The videographer has the good sense to move around, and he does manage to capture some alluring close-ups, but there is not much in the way of “action” here.
What is here is Danae A., and that can never be a bad thing. This MetArt model is relaxed, confident, uninhibited, and displays an easy professionalism. She also looks particularly fetching in her Western wear, particularly after those tight, dusty jeans and cowboy boots are stripped off. I will note that Danae doesn’t reveal her breasts until well into the movie, which is somewhat surprising considering just how eye-catching they are.
While there is a (slightly incongruous) musical track, live sound — including patter between photographer Tim Fox, his model, and an assistant — adds a certain interest even though I don’t understand a word of the lingo being spoken. We also get to see the model posing with her passport and photo ID — a legal requirement of every nude photo shoot, and an interesting aside.
It may not be as exciting or as dramatic as its namesake, but this “Rodeo” is not without its rewards.
