A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A LINGERIE MODEL

The “V” Channel

MODESTY SCRIPT

Written by Scott Feraco, based on the lesson from The Family Virtues Guide by Linda Kavelin Popov with Dr. Dan Popov Ph.D., and John Kavelin.

EXT. VARIOUS SHOTS: On her way to work, a striking-looking YOUNG WOMAN takes long strides, passing iconic Manhattan locations. She exudes self-confidence, yet she is not showy.

CUT TO: She enters a building

CUT TO: In the elevator—she talks to the camera.

YOUNG WOMAN
My parents raised me to be a “good” girl…
(Smiles a million-dollar smile)
So I’m happy to make this video, to help teach young girls…
and boys… the virtue of modesty.

CUT TO: She enters a photo studio and is greeted by an internationally renowned PHOTOGRAPHER. He gives her a warm hug, kisses both her cheeks.

PHOTOGRAPHER
Nice to see you again!
(To camera)
She’s my favorite model.
(Pinches her cheek)
How can such a beautiful girl be so modest?

CUT TO: MONTAGE: Various shots as they prepare for a photo shoot—setting up lights, in the dressing room, getting make-up, etc.

The PHOTOGRAPHER and the YOUNG WOMAN chat—sometimes ON CAMERA, sometimes as VOICEOVER.

YOUNG WOMAN
When you practice modesty you don’t show-off.

PHOTOGRAPHER
So many girls and guys today are looking for attention… look at me!…
I’m so hot!… I blame it on Facebook.

YOUNG WOMAN
It’s natural for people to want to share their “gifts” with the world.
But I was taught that modesty is important. It comes when you have a sense
of self-acceptance and quiet pride. You share your excitement about
something you have done without making it sound like the best thing
that anyone ever did—like a girlfriend of mine—she made blueberry pancakes
and made it sound as if she invented the cure for cancer!

PHOTOGRAPHER
And some of the pictures they post!
(makes a sour face)
Yuck.

YOUNG WOMAN
(Laughs)
Everyone is beautiful… in their own way.
(Serious)
But we should also have a sense of privacy, especially about our body.
Young people should know to keep the “private parts” of their body to
themselves and not allow others to touch them in ways that abuse their privacy.

CUT TO: The YOUNG WOMAN steps in front of the camera. An assistant helps her remove her robe—she is WEARING NOTHING BUT LINGERIE.

YOUNG WOMAN
This may sound funny coming from me—but modesty means having
a sense of what is appropriate and inappropriate about showing your body.

CUT TO: MONTAGE: Various shots as the PHOTOGRAPHER photographs the YOUNG WOMAN.

PHOTOGRAPHER
You are the most beautiful model in the universe!

MONTAGE: Still photos of the YOUNG WOMAN in lingerie.

YOUNG WOMAN
Modesty means to accept praise without getting conceited or puffed up with a feeling
of superiority. You are grateful for your gifts, and you know that others have gifts too.

PHOTOGRAPHER
(To camera)
She’s such a pro.

YOUNG WOMAN
Modesty is an attitude. It begins by being comfortable with yourself.

CUT TO—LATER: The PHOTOGRAPHER and his assistants are looking at the photos on a laptop.

PHOTOGRAPHER
These are soooooo good. I did great, didn’t I?!

The Young Woman appears over The PHOTOGRAPHER’S shoulder.

YOUNG WOMAN
(Scolding playfully)
When you do something with others, you don’t take all the credit.

CUT TO: The YOUNG WOMAN, The PHOTOGRAPHER and the ASSISTANTS, arm-in-arm, smiling.

ALL
(To camera)
We ALL did a great job!
