Today has been a very tiring day of running around with my camera. It's was the first leg of a documentary film about a school closing because of not enough children in the little small mountain town. Its making quite a dramatic impact on the village people, since it will create a chain reaction. Once the school disappears it's only a matter of time before the shops start closing and the place becomes a ghost town. Anyway, it generated me some work so amongst all the sadness I was smiling. Filming turned out to be great. Lots of fantastic moving shots, acting, interviews and arty shots. I will continue with the production in summer after South Africa. Yes.... I just got the green light for a wonderful film project starting in less than two weeks from now. I am really happy and all the praise to God. hihihi... South Africa... here I come... again.

I had a very interesting 4 days behind me helping a Canadian Film team producing a documentary film on green homes in Switzerland. I assisted them where ever I could from scouting for locations assistant, camera operator, even helping with directing the shoot. It was really a great experience with a quality film grew.
