Interview of Model Francoise
 
 
Deakins:
There's already been a lot of talk about the third aim...
 
Hale:
True Major. Soldier Meerwald finds the guy on the picture is not as pretty as Lena, the Merry Bowmen believe his feet stink, etc.
 
Deakins:
OK. Let's clarify all those points with Model Francoise.
 
Hale:
Francoise, where does this name come from?
 
Model Francoise:
It is actually a mistake. Several months ago, I was assigned a review from the Merry Bowmen's Chief. It seems he believed I was a girl because he added an 'e' to my first name. Thus my nickname.
 
Deakins:
Interesting. Is it difficult to compete with Lena?
 
Model Francoise:
You'd better ask the chief of the Merry Bowmen!
 
Hale:
Soldier Meerwald complained about your smile. What do you have to say?
 
Model Francoise:
I am currently considering an opportunity from Playboy to model for the upcoming calendar. I promise I'll be very pretty and smiling. Playboy offered me to model because they think their 70's Lena image was somewhat outdated. They wanted something more accurate for the very dedicated audience of watermarkers.
 
Hale:
Still, there is this question on a very unpleasant smell emanating from your shoes.
 
Model Francoise:
This picture was taken on a small trip with friends in the Grand Canyon. You can notice on the picture 'souvenir' that some stones hide my feet. There is no proof that these shoes are mine. Actually, they are not. These are the shoes of the Major.
 
Deakins:
What?
 
Model Francoise:
Major, don't be shy. Don't you remember those lovely days in California and Arizona?
 
Hale:
Major?
 
Deakins:
OK. I have to admit these shoes are mine. But they don't stink!
 
Model Francoise:
Major, they do stink. How come I was always under the impression I was followed by two invisible skunks?
 
Hale:
Model Francoise, what is your feeling in participating in the BOWS2 challenge?
 
Model Francoise:
Well, I heard all this stuff was to design proper technologies to enforce copyright protection on digital images. I have to say that I got no money from the Major for this picture. I'm a bit disappointed.
 
Deakins:
Honey, there is no question of money between us!
 
Hale:
Model Francoise, do you have an idea of what will be the prize for this contest?
 
Model Francoise:
I do. I think the chief of the Merry Bowmen will be very happy, but we'll probably have to replace the prize in the case Soldier Meerwald wins.
 
Hale:
What do you mean?
 
Model Francoise:
It seems Soldier Meerwald prefers outdated models.
 
Deakins:
One more question darling: are you still modeling those days?
 
Model Francoise:
I am currently modeling the false alarm probability of the scheme you used. I can testify it is below 3 e-6.
 
Hale:
Thank you Model Francoise. Last word: in your opinion, who will win the challenge?
 
Model Francoise:
I don't cayre unless it is Soldier Meerwald.
