Once the raindrops move a bit away! -- Una vez que la lluvia se aleje un poco!
Well, I’m awfully sorry that I’ve been out of touch over the last two months, but I’ve been really busy. We’re virtually done with the research phase of El Salvador: The Four Cardinal Points and, if the weather is good, we’ll start shooting by mid-October. So, wish us luck!
By the way, there’s one more thing that I’d like to share with you: remember that short film we did on Perkin, one of the locations of our documentary? Well, I submitted it to the Icaro Film Festival, and it got selected to compete against other Short Documentaries from Central America. I didn’t expect to be nominated since I saw this little film more like an exercise, but now I’m happy to be able to compete with other filmmakers from the region. To see the other selections from El Salvador go to this page.
Once again, I must thank you for all your support. Without your help we couldn’t have made it.
I’ll keep you posted on the advances over the next few months.
Bueno, siento mucho que he estado desconectado durante los últimos dos meses, pero he estado muy ocupado. Ya casi terminamos con la fase de investigación para El Salvador: Cuatro Puntos Cardinales y, si el clima nos ayuda, comenzaremos a rodar a mediados de octubre. Así que deséenos suerte.
Por cierto, hay otra cosa que me gustaría compartir con ustedes: ¿recuerdan el corto que hicimos sobre Perkin, una de las locaciones de nuestro documental? Bueno, lo presenté al Festival de Cine Ícaro y fue seleccionado para competir con otros Documentales Cortos de Centroamérica. No esperaba ser nominado pues este corto fue más bien un ejercicio para nosotros, pero me alegra poder competir contra otros cineastas de la región. Para ver las otras selecciones de El Salvador, vean esta página.
Una vez más, debo agradecerles por su apoyo. Sin su ayuda no lo pudiéramos haber hecho.
Los mantendré al tanto de los avances durante los próximos meses.
