So, I guess I have to introduce myself/ourselves.
We are the cinema group from Argentina, and it was our first time doing it. The first time any Argentinian group took part of the event. And the past Friday, on April 14th, we started to record one of the scenes that will be included in our short film. After days of talking and trying to organise ourselves, we finally started to film it.
We spent six and a half hours recording, but only four to five minutes would be shown on the film after going through the editing process, which sounds a little bit crazy, but it was fun anyway. We recorded this first scene in one of the crew’s house. Brought the camera and all the equipment, put everything in place and started to record. We spent time inside and outside the house, had a short break for lunch, tons of stuff. We also used different shots and tried to record from different places, until we finally did it.
I personally found it funny. It was a rather unique experience in which, even when we all knew that this was going to be shared in France and it was a ‘serious’ thing, we kept doing jokes or made fun of different situations. I even became friends with one of the actors which I found unexpected but great. And we are just getting started.
This is more than just a film, if you think about it. Of course, the main goal is to create a short film, but it means more for us than that. It’s something that we put effort in, something that we took time and space to create and that we decide to share with different people across the world. It’s our way to contribute to this project, just like the rest of the countries that are taking part of this, too.
Me and the rest of the group are happy for having the chance to participate on this. And we are going to keep filming soon.
