Director Statement

I am thrilled to be able to share this short film with you. It’s an emotional and moving piece that has gotten great reactions at the festivals where it has screened. A few people even cried. From a technical perspective it was very challenging to complete. It was filmed in one single continuous tracking shot at 300 frames per second without cuts or dialogue. Due to the use of a live helicopter we only had 5 takes to get it right. But despite these challenges we wanted to tell a moving story that stays with you long after seeing it.
