a little preview vibe

just threw together the first costume session with a light test I did of the location to see the three actors, the look of the clothes and the environment together - then put that to an urban industrial beat - this way maybe we can all get a little preview vibe of where the project is going stylistically

First Meeting With Costume Designer

I feel lucky to have Nicholas K a great new designer helping out with this project. Have done preliminary fittings with my three actors. I got some video of the fittings, perhaps I will edit and post some videos here later.

spelling my name on the web

here is a side note on my photography site

it was always up with my swedish spelling, but a lot of people would not be able to find it if they looked in google so eventually i simply found two other sites available with the american spelling and a hybrid spelling,

ah the struggles of being a foreigner

Found an amazing location

my buddy crawford has a blacksmith studio in brooklyn, i was going to help him put some stuff on the roof to protect from the hurricane that never came, the minute I walked in there i knew I wanted to film in there, there are amazing sculptures and weird african iron art all over the place, it sparked my imagination towards strange images of ancient black magic

i asked if it was ok to shoot there and was granted permission very kindly

so now i am writing a story inspired by that location, aiming at filming this winter

i am looking to put together something that deals with a master blacksmith with roots in ancient africa, an apprentice from ireland or something that comes and wants to learn from the master, and in between a blacksmiths daughter that is dangerously seductive, there could power struggles of sex, magic and violence

i have talked to three actors that i think could be right for the parts and they all said yes

now it is all about fleshing out this barren synopsis for the actors to have something to work with

I wanted to tie this project into the previous movie that i did called "The Funeral" also on this site. A very simple method was to start where the last one left off, in a bunch of bubbles. So before we dive into a more current look of what is going on, here is a kind of backwards looking nostalgic dream again, this time to a different era and a little more rooted in reality.
