Filmmakers in the mist

If you’re looking for a wonder then visit the rainforest early in the morning. The first sunrays push their way through the dense canopy and create an incredible painting right in front of your eyes. At that moment an amazing feeling of peace overwhelms you and somehow everything in the world seems to be in order…

For Jorg, Chris and William this treat happens every morning around 7 AM. The three are still looking for the perfect locations to shoot certain scenes. The beauty of the rainforest at dawn completely inspires the three.

It’s not always easy to find the right location. There are many limitations that unfortunately don’t allow to shoot the film with complete creative freedom but everything also needs to be practical. Many beautiful locations are inaccessible for the camera team or can’t be dressed the right way. Then most of the forest is too dense, what keeps the sun from striking through the leaves. Without light, no movie. So lighter forest is needed that will be dressed to make it look more dense… Crazy, hum? That’s what we call suspension of disbelief.

Only one more day of scouting in La Garita, Alajuela. Tomorrow we’ll be leaving for Manuel Antonio where the shoot will start on the 8th of May. Soon we’ll also welcome the rest of the crew and of course our amazing cast. The countdown is running…
