Weekly notes: Director's Cut

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.


Better known as the last moments before the filming officially starts.

And that's why I couldn't force myself to publish an outfit post today.
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?

  1. Mene jako veseli što si nas odlučila uključiti i u taj važan aspekt svoga života i baš mi je drago što ćemo moći čitati i o tome...mogu zamisliti kako ti sada izgleda soba, ali i mene nekad taj kreativni nered smiruje. Nije uvijek mnoštvo stvari znak nereda i rada, nekad je i znak reda i rada...samo jednog kaotičnog reda i rada. Moja baka kojoj je urednost sve, nikad nije smetao taj kreativni nered na radnom stolu, uvijek bi rekla da je to drukčija vrsta nereda...radni nered/red:)

    Fotografija je prekrasna.<3

    1. Hvala ti, drago mi je to čuti! :) I meni taj kreativni nered nikad nije smetao iako sam inače osoba koja voli da je sve na svome mjestu, ali kad se ovako nešto počne raditi i život upadne u petu brzinu, onda nekako najbolje funkcioniram u tom kreativnom kaosu, baš ga volim :)

  2. I would love for you to talk more about being a director - it's so exciting! What a shame you won't see Mario and Frida until Christmas, but think how lovely a moment it'll be when you finally do get to see them again :)

    1. I'll share as much as I can about this project once the filming starts, I can't wait! :) And I miss them so much already but I agree with you, the moment we finally get to see each other again is gonna be pretty spectacular! xx

  3. Ne mogu svi da se pohvale tako zanimljivim i neobičnim zanimanjem pa iz tog razloga uživaj još više u tome i kad je "naj-messy" jer verujem da je vredno truda. Nadam se da ti neće pasti teško odvajanje od tvojih u Rijeci, ali kad je čovek zauzet, vreme teče brzo, a ja sam nekako sigurna da ćeš ti izaći sa svime na kraj. Plus, Božić i sve će ti tako biti još draži, nešto kao zaslužena nagrada :) Nema potrebe da posebno naglašavam koliko mi je drago što si odlučila da i ovako nešto podeliš sa nama, a sad odoh konačno na miru da vidim sve što sam ovde propustila :)
    Srećno! <3

    1. Potpisujem da vrijeme leti ko ludo kad si pun obaveza, to me nekako i najviše tješi u trenucima kad počnem razmišljati kako ih neću vidjeti dva mjeseca, ali i sama znam da se neću ni okrenuti, a već će biti Božić :) Hvalaaa ti, draga moja! <3 <3

  4. What an exciting time for you! I bet you already miss Mario and Frida terribly, but it sounds like you're incredibly busy, and that's a good way to fight homesickness. I can't wait to learn more about your project, and being a director!

  5. Iako mi je žao što si dječicu ;) ostavila u Rijeci, vjerujem da će taj mali odmak dobro doći svima, a i vrijeme će proći u sekundi s obzirom na tempo koji će ti biti na snimanju...Veselim se novim avanturama i upoznavanju tog drugog dijela tvoje profesije i strasti! :)
