AUTUMN



Here is a film that I really enjoyed directing.
We did the casting and shot in London, starring the amazing Sylvia Mann with Tom Lander and Jake Cooper.
I worked on the concept with Lara Jensen. We worked on the idea of a finding closure after a loss. It is a methaphor of love and friendship.
It was a very cold day but the spirit of the team was so energetic and we all had an amazing time.
The guys were friends but met Sylvia the day of the shoot and the connection they played on the scenes was really amazing.
We were not allowed to have heavy equipment for the falling leaves so i had everyone throw the leaves in different directions. It was like playing snowballs in fall.
For the music, i collaborated with George Stephan. I think music has a very important role in films with no dialogue. And i love his work, it really connects well with the narrative of the film.
Thanks to everyone who made it possible!
