update

just for the record, the production has been stopped for one and a half month now and things are really on thin ice production-wise. we'll see what's gonna happen next. soon, i hope.

but i mean, what kind of a "film school" doesn't even have its own lights anyway?

so, for all of you out there thinking about coming to filmova skola zlin, (or film school zlin)* don't. seriously, don't even think about it. 

ps. yeah, i do hope either one of you skaunic or domincova actually reads this.


*i wrote the english name of the school only to help the "googling" results. yep.

The houses we have lived in for a long time

Well its a year now since we have started working on Everland. It took a lot of time and energy from everyone involved. But the coolest thing about it is that we didnt give up. Of course there were fights, times when I though I couldnt continue because I didnt have enough... faith? No, faith is not the right word cause if I hadnt had that I would have stopped after few months. I had faith in you, Ozlem and your crew. I would just like to say thanks you, Pepa, Milan, Marketa, thank you a lot Robert.. you all did a lot of work for me and for Ozlems film.
Do you want to know why such a nostalgy? I spent hours watching the photographs from making of... Enough words - here is what we did.. :)

Už je tomu rok, co jsme začali pracovat na Everlandu. Za ten rok jsme zažili mnohé, vzal hodně času a energie všech zúčastněným. Ale nejlepší na tom je, že jsme to nevzdali. Samozřejmě, že byly hádky, chvíle, kdy jsem si myslela, že už nemůžu pokračovat protože jsem neměla dost... víry? Ne, víra asi není to pravé slovo. Kdybych ji neměla, přestala bych hned na začátku. Víru jsem měla - ve vás... No, prostě vám chci jen poděkovat - Pepo, Milane, Markéťáku, díky Roberte - všichni jste udělali ohromný kus dobré práce jak pro Ozlemin film, tak pro mě.
A chcete vědět proč ta nostalgie? Zítra mě čeká velký rozhovor se Skaunicem o budoucnosti Everlandu. Tak jsem ted několik hodin strávila prohlížením fotek..
Dost slov - tady je, co jsme udělali :

Café DeLovelly (Milan Ondruch),Tree house (Josef Válek), western house (Josef Válek), Hundertwasser house (Petra Ptáčková), blue house (Petra Albertinová), english house (Milan Ondruch), smurf house (Milan Ondruch), real street house (Marketa Pustinová)
........... and much much more / a spousta dalšího ..........

Analog Everland










We appreciate the advices of Mr. Kolář for low light, who recommended this professional material Fuji Neopan 1600 and the Push processing which allowed higher sensitivity (3200!). So we could underexpose and have better results.

how i pay my crew a.k.a. Pepa the Cowboy


as i mentioned on my blog, we came to an understanding that i'll be paying my crew their wages as their very own puppets. and here is pepa with his miniature puppet cowboy pepa.
the western house and the rocking chair (the one the puppet is sitting on) were all meda by pepa himself. so, who else could've been the owner of those in everland but him?

Everland is coming alive again

Although we had some problems last week we don't give up. There are still people whose wishes didn't become real - neither ours - we believe in the film so much.
As our shooting continues Everland grows. New stories, new characters appear. They're living creatures I really do think so. Look at this video and check :)

Ačkoliv jsme minulý týden měli menší problémy, nevzdáváme to. Pořád jsou kolem nás lidi, jejichž přání nebyla naplněna - stejně jako ta naše - tak zkrátka v ten film tolik věříme.
Jak natáčení pokračuje, Everland roste. Objevují se nové postavy, nové příběhy. Opravdu se domnívám, že jsou živí. Podívejte se na video a uvidíte sami :)
