A message to the image hunter
Producing this short film has been the most exhilarating, exciting and frustrating experience I've ever had. No words explain how grateful I am to have met and been able to work with such an inspirational person. This amazing opportunity has taught me some important technical tips, but this is not the main lesson I learned from this experience. I have gained a vision that I would never have achieved without having had this opportunity. I have learnt that filmmaking is not about the newest camera model, or about the best lens. The lens is simply, your eyes. The mind set and ideologies that I have gained are the things that will stay with me forever, throughout my whole entire career, and on several occasions, I will think back at how we stood on the top of a truck in the middle of a lonesome desert. Or how we struggled for hours, just to get a 3 second macro shot of an eye. Or the several laughs when recording the voice over. Again, thank you ever so much John, Deborah and Rachel for this once in a life time experience. One that never shall be forgotten.
