The original idea was to have in the out-of-focus foreground French actress Carole Bouquet riding a springbok antelope while holding a flower bouquet. In the OOF background I'd put English DJ Bok Bok holding a bock (lager beer) bottle while cooking a bockwurst (german sausage) over a bucket full of brickets. In the middle, in focus, a telescope pointed to a Bok globule, interstellar object owing its name to Dutch-American scientist Bart J. Bok.
But when everything was ready and the troupe reached the stage - a remote spot in Solomon Islands - we found there were no brickets on site. So the project aborted.
"It's sad. It was the most important project in my life after my role in That Obscure Object of Desire by Luis Bunuel" Carole Bouquet said me on the plane taking us back to Europe. "Still I hope someday I'll win the Best Actress in Bokeh Academy Award".

That's the true - and sad - story. Anyway I feel obliged to participate to your highly important contest, so I send you an image of my 2 PC monitors - one frontfocused, the other backfocused - with the web images I used to build the original storyboard. (Pentax FA 50 f1.4 at f 1.4)
