Since our last update, Mala Mala has been busy. We completed our 4th (December) and 5th trip (February) to Puerto Rico. The crew got back to NYC yesterday morning and we're really happy to inform that we've completed our story shooting! Our hard drives are jampacked with funny, sad, and exciting stories and sleep-depraved adventures. Now we're getting busy editing. We've pushed back the deadline on some of the backer rewards, focusing all our resources on completing the film and delivering it to festivals on time. But don't worry, soon as we're done check your mailboxes for lots of Mala Mala goodies.
Forever thank you for your support, it's what has made this incredible year possible. Below are some Behind the Scenes moments from Trip 5. Shout out to all our talented Assistant Cameras: Max Lakner, Christelle de Castro, Vasilios Sfinarolakis, Caleb Heller, and Zach Stoltzfus. Wouldn't have been the same without you. Eternal hugs and thank yous to our new subjects and all those that kept everything moving in the right direction on these past 2 trips. Hands up for vans and pickup trucks to the rescue (Andres de los Santos & Manuel Santini Jr.), extra hands and cameras (Edward Diaz), snacks, words of wisdom and encouragement, air beds and open doors. Hands down for flat tires at 5am, clowns, dead batteries, and broken tripods and monitors. And lastly, another round of hands up for our new subjects: Sandy and Paxx (& Audrey, the cutest couple in Hato Rey). Now lets get to work. A lot to be done. If you want to reach us, feel free to hit us up at email@example.com.
