Turn on the sound and make it a full screen – here it is, my first film! Well, it’s not totally correct since I’ve been working on some short films earlier (filmensuthus.no), but I’ve never been behind the camera filming! And what a pleasure it was… Filming someone who’s followed her heart, making amazing organic sweets based on her Russian roots. I think I pulled of keeping my «photo signature» in the film as well, which felt important to me. Crisp, moody and tempting, and only working with natural light. I’ve practiced ‘chasing the light’ for almost two years, when I picked up a camera for the first time. Now I start to feel comfortable behind the camera, and it feels good.
There will be more films to come, even much shorter ones, made only for this blog and Instagram. Hopefully there will be more films like this one too, since I want to offer to work with you – people who got their own brand or project, are in the developing of something exciting to come, if you have a farm, a shop, a product, an idea… The sky is the limit! Also, since we have a recording studio, and my husband is a musician (and much better composer than I am), we also have a special touch to the films – we (read: he) always makes the film music! For our own projects, for projects like this film and for other projects to come. We also have a very special film music collaboration right now, which I will definitely share with you as soon as it’s out in the beginning of the week.
When I worked with Zhar Sjokolade (Zhar Chocolate) I came to her location, a little shop here on the countryside (she als has a webshop). But except from coming to a location, I will offer for future projects to use my own house as a location, or even our property outside Prague. That place must be one of the most stunning backdrops for short films and photos, and has endless opportunities! I can both work with you or for you by getting your products or ideas to work with by myself… Did I mention the sky is the limit?
