We had some fun with this one. Since I knew this would be the first
shot on the second day of shooting, I made sure I blow-dryed my hair
straight down in order to give it that Austin Powers look. I also
found a pair of Halloween "nerd" glasses at a party store.
It was difficult to get the lens out, but Jeff was able to do it
without breaking the frames. We didn't want the lenses distorting
my eyes for the picture. We took quite a number of pics for
this movie, because we weren't exactly what expression would work
best. In the original movie frame, Austin has just noticed that
Vanessa has caught him holding his "device", and he
is about to grin and tell her "It's not mine, baby!
Somebody's playing a prank on me!" However, that
expression is sort of boring, so we did some where I look
surprised, or embarassed, or shocked, or angry. You can see some
of the rejected expressions below. In the end, we went with one
that looked like Austin was actually quite proud of his pump,
with just a hint of a grin.
