Preproduction phase...Today feels a bit weird.
Mario and Frida are on their way back to Rijeka and I won't see them again until Christmas, which means I'm all alone in this crazy hometown of mine. Actually, I'm most definitely NOT alone because I'm surrounded by my tv crew and phones are ringing constantly and so many mails need to be answered etc.
It's crazy and I'm loving it.
With each new project comes a moment when the outside world in a way shuts down and you focus only on that one tiny piece of the universe called the new movie. Or a tv show. Or whatever.
Days seem shorter than they actually are, you're constantly fighting with time, trying to squeeze in as much work as you possibly can in one day, and the excitement is growing.
And that's why I couldn't force myself to publish an outfit post today.
Better known as the last moments before the filming officially starts.
Sure, I don't have time to edit those photos right now because so many more important tasks are waiting for me to get back to them but more importantly, I want to take you all with me on this crazy journey that's just about to start.
Because in the previous years of this blog I never talked about being a director and a writer, I never showed you behind the scenes snapshots and stories, I never wrote about the whole process of bulding a story from scratch and how it all feels.
And that thought makes me quite sad because there were so many amazing adventures I wish I'd shared and documented - for you and for myself as well.
Right now I'm in Sibenik, sitting on the messy bed in my old bedroom that's filled with things. Even though I got here on Sunday, I still didn't have the time to unpack which means my floor is filled with bags, suitcases, sneakers, clothes, camera gear and notebooks. I can't even see the desk from all the sweaters, sunglasses, scarves and external drives. My nightstand is packed with beauty products and jewelry.
But somehow this mess is making me feel calm.
And things are about to get even messier.
How's your week going so far?
