Behind The Scenes - Part 2 is the third video in the Behind The Scenes aspect of the itscassie video series.
Text: Questions are answered in the order of which they were asked, things asked twice were combined, video responses were answered first.
Rey: Was Aima bad or good or what? Well, Aima was bad.
(Cuts to scene from Camera 03)
Aima: I, however, will personally ensure that the subject is discarded properly.
(Back to Rey.)
Rey: She was just playing Cassie the whole time. And the reason I introduced her character was because, at the time, the whole lonelygirl15 storyline wasn't giving me much to work with. So I was really forced to create a character of my own that I could just evolve more stories with. And I decided to have a twist where Cassie gets this roommate and they start hookin' up...
(Cuts to scene from Do you know Bree?)
Aima: I'm Aima.
(Back to Rey.)
Rey: But then she finds out that the roommate is just acting to be stupid and not knowing anything, when really she's the brains
Text: shes the brains?
Rey: And she's basically running the whole Medical Science Technoloy faction of the Order, which is this special building that she's being kept in, where they first tested the ep-o-gen, epogen, whatever
Rey: On Cassie. Again, I don't know where come up with these things.
(Cuts to scene from Stolen Goods)
Cassie: Who carries around Ketchup packets in their purse?
(Back to Rey.)
Rey: So you're probably asking yourself, why did I decide to end the series now? Well, there are many answers to that question. A major reason being - I am just a few months away from graduating college. And that can be a very, very hectic time. In fact the whole time I've been doing these, it's been very hectic, and I've barely had time to do them, but somehow I always made time. Just because. It was something fun for me. I was getting more practice with with using the camera, and editing, and special effects, and that kind of things. I could... I really didn't even get a chance to show half the things I'm capable of. I really just had to end it because I didn't have enough time. I was running out of time to really dedicate myself to making good videos. Because, at first it was all just a joke... funny funny haha... make these people think I'm Cassie because it's four in the morning and I'm bored and I can't sleep. So why not post a video saying I'm Cassie and see who bites the worm on my fishing reel, right? I mean, that's all it was. And from there, it became almost an addiction. Like, let's make another one and see how many other people I can get to bite on my little lure. And, you know, it took me a long time to actually take it seriously. I mean, I actually made a lot of videos that I literally through together. It was just a fun joke. But then at some point, you know, I realized I have a storyline going, I might as well try to put some effort into this actually. Because I knew that I was capable of better production. And to have that better production, I really need to dedicate that time to it, and after a while, I just didn't have the time anymore. And I felt terrible if I didn't release a video every week. And if I a week went by, I just couldn't live with myself. I was just, aw I have to release a video. But I just don't have time to make one and edit it. I mean, it's hard when you're doing it all yourself. But, you know, it was a really fun experience, and I'm really glad I did it.
(Cuts to Aima from a delted scene.)
Aima: Good Cassie impresion, right?
(Back to Rey.)
Rey: Another reason I decided to end was just because, I barely had time to watch the lonelygirl videos as it was. And honestly, somehow, I just didn't want to watch.
Rey: I don't know. I was really intrigued in the begining, but now it's kind of following the same pattern. Oh, we got Bree, now let's run. Oh, she's away, now we got her again, let's run. They're just always on the run.
Text: I need action!
Rey: They just keep introducing character after character.
Text: Sarah fan
Rey: And it has its interesting points, but there's just too many filler videos now for me to just sit there and really get into it anymore. So that had a huge role in me deciding to hurry up and get this to the end.
(Cuts to Cassie in her blue wig.)
Cassie: I've been trying... I've been trying to figure out who came into my room and why.
(Back to Rey.)
Rey: Why black and white? Good question! Well, other than the reasons of black and white having that obvious creepy feeling...
(Screen cuts to black and white.)
Text: creepy enough for ya?
Rey: I felt that black and white was the best option for me, seeing I had to basically shoot everything in the dark, because there is no good lighting in my house. I mean (Screen cuts back to color.) this is the best I could do right now. And, you know, even that is not that great. And the black and white really helped me hide my identity as well. Because, in the beginning, I just didn't want to be seen. I was embarrassed. I wanted to be a part of the lonelygirl phenomenon. I was so inspired that you could just make a video online and make whole a series out of it and people will just watch it and love it. And it really just opened my eyes to the possibilities of the internet in general. I really wanted to be a part of it, yet I didn't want to show my face.
Text: dont look at me! ahhhh!
Rey: But after a while, I guess, I just felt more comfortable showing my face. I figured what are the odds of someone I know seeing this. And I really didn't tell anyone that I was making these videos until like the last month that I was filming them. So a majority of the time, nobody even knew that I was posting videos on the internet saying I'm some girl named Cassie and being part of this weird storyline. You know, I guess I was kind of embarrassed in a way. I didn't want people to see them and look at them and judge me on the quality of them. Because it's not something I put a lot of effort into. It was just something I did at three in the morning when I couldn't sleep and I had some spare time and I felt like screwing around with the camrea. And that's really all there is to it.
Text: Part 3: Coming soon! EVERYTHING MUST BE ANSWERED!
