#‎blog‬ The process of Bluebird ep.7
When I first heard Marie-Noëlle audio piece, it resonated with me. I could visualise my own nightmares, the ones in which I see tsunamis and floods. Nightmares have been a recurring theme in my art...

CALL FOR COLLABORATORS
I'd like to recruit a team of awesome people to join me in the making of my next short film, "Theatre for Shadows".
It's a 5-minute tragedy that I would like to shoot in early 2015 on one location.
There is lots of preparation to do before, so here are some job positions to be filled immediately:
- Producer;
- Art director;
- Storyboard artist;
- Copywriter-editor;
- Photographer-videographer.

More job positions will be opened soon.
[Note that all are unpaid for now. But I do wish to quickly find the necessary funding to compensate everyone involved.]

Please send any question or your application to alecska@followthestory.net before Friday 12th of December, 4pm.
Share the info or refer someone you know!
