I feel it's time for another update. A bit of a personal one this time.

Wrapping Life is Long a week ago made me feel a lot of things. During the shoot days we were very much confronted with the choices I had made in pre production, both artistically and production wise. Going through the scenes one by one, it became clear once more that it all comes down to this one idea it all started with. As good a job as everyone on set has done, all we have in the end is the story. This makes post production as daunting as it is exciting.

As I'm posting this, I just returned from a short break. Being somewhere else for a couple of days gave me a good look at a lot of things, also beyond the scope of this project. I really feel I'm in the right headspace right now to take this project to the next phase. This means locking the picture, then sending it over to our sound design team and finally having it colored.

Exciting times! So stay tuned as we'll continue posting updates on here. Up next: an interview with Yara, our costume supervisor.

For now, I'd like to thank all of you who have expressed an interest in this project. I can't wait to show you more.
