That's a wrap!

Last night we wrapped on Barbazul, my second film. It feels good to finish. Also something of a letdown. I had the same feeling with Sirwiñakuy.

Sometimes it's best to just jump right back in and make another film. So that's exactly what I'm going to do. I'll be hearing soon from Veronica Paintoux, my muse, to see if she'll be starring again in my third film. Exciting!

Barbazul is my second film, based on the story "La Barbe bleu" (Bluebeard) by Charles Perrault. I've loved this story since I was a little girl and just had to make my own version.

After finding the perfect location for Barbazul's house, I did casting for the wives. And decided to play one of them myself.

Not a lot of directors act, or in their own film for that matter, but I feel that it's important for me to act in order to better understand my actors. I know that sounds pretentious, but it isn't, trust me.

Plus, it's fun! (Except for the smoking part. As a non-smoker myself, I thought it would be easy. Silly me.)

    Debería haber una versión en castellano de este espacio.
    Me imagino, Amy, que no eres una lástima...y yo no soy angloescribiente ni anglolector.
