Arica siege fire

Again filming in Barrios Altos for the Arica siege scenes involving burning flames and fire shots. We enlisted the help of firemen who I had meetings with in the last couple days. Can't feel more happy that they are not only willing to participate and that they also simply love the topic at hand and realize the importance of the film.

With the participation of our faithful extras we finalized the scenes without much problems but with lots of adrenaline and safety. Daylight was shorter as its autumm here so I wrapped up the day just barely minutes before the necessary available light was too dark for filming.

Firemen are cool. Reminded me when little I wanted to be one. Oooh, childhood dreams...
