"Voces en el Silencio" almost done.

Almost done filming "Voces en el Silencio". One more week and principal photography is ready to be edited.
This short film project has been a blow of fresh air to my frantic schedule filming "Gloria del Pacifico", specially because filming big locations and with lots of soldiers and logistics and locations can be quite draining and extenuating, but this is like going back to basics. Not that it's easy but each film has it's own demands and "Voces.." is quite simpler and because of that, quite more calmer in a way.

I have to thank Carlos Vertiz and Juana Herrera -beautiful couple- that called me on-board with this project of theirs and trusted me for this job. I have not only learned how delicate and important to address is this topic of human trafficking but also strengthen my vision about life and about how important is to make your own dreams come true. This is their dream and I'm happy to help them make it a reality.

Yesterday friday, finally slept at my own bed after spending a whole week at Callao in a hotel with all production stuff filming in dangerous locations but with the help of police security. Sadly, one day was lost because of a power shortage  in all three blocks of the surrounding area five minutes before filming (and the neighbors thought it was us who spoiled it), but this week we went at it again and finally made the scene work.

Now, finishing the new article for next month's issue of MAS magazine and on to work for next weeks filming.

PS: Weather is finally changing little by little. It's cold at night but the days are becoming warmer and sunnier and not so cloudy. Can't wait to have clear skies and sunnier atmosphere again up at the Morro Solar to finally return to filming "Gloria del Pacifico". This foggy weather and drizzle wasn't allowing me.
