This was a special project for me and a whole another experience that I am used to. So this project came to be when we showed our film We are what we eat at the MLA Awards in Vienna. The Curator of the “Yasss! youth Programm” which is a part of the Crossing Europe Festival in Linz, got in touch with us and invited Katharina Zotter, Richard Edelsbacher and me to take part. It was the first time, they tried to make a youth program, so I also was honored to be one of the first.
First, we didn’t know what to expect. What we knew was that we are going to make a film with other aspiring filmmakers. When we got there, we finally met all the other participants. They mainly were from Linz and Upper Austria. After a quick introduction, we were separated into three groups with about seven people. Each group had a supervisor, who was familiar with the topic of film making.
From there the process started. We began developing a Idea, searched for actors and locations and shot our film. We were really lucky and got a good location where we also could make adjustment for our set. It took a good half of day to shot the whole thing and we were really happy how smooth everything went.
Now we only had two days left to finish post production. We took turns with editing and sound mixing. It took longer than expected, but we pushed through and finished it on time.
Here you can see the final product:
