Schell and ziff started filming about five years ago, following ziff around behind the scenes from castings to runway shows.
“We started making a movie before we intended to make a movie at all,” said ziff.
From the outside, said both Schell and ziff, people are quick to assume that every model has an eating disorder.
We see ziff open a check for more than $80,000, almost in disbelief.
ziff was around 19 when her agency sent her to see Richardson for the first time.
Mr. ziff carried a stop watch on a leather lanyard, like Captain Queeg.
While Richardson contends the shoot was advertised as a “semi-nude casting,” ziff disagrees.
But that this is the full story, said Schell and ziff, is a popular misconception.
