      Thanks Resa :)
      the whole thing was a huge learning experience and I am not sorry for any second of it. at the same time Nathan is a great character and I am positive I have enough for a short film which will reveal a lot...one stressful thing was the kickstarter campaign and how to explain to people that in documentaries things can change drastically but my backers seem to be very understanding and supportive of my decision!
      take care and will keep you posted on the film!

      yes indeed Maria, pity that something which could have revealed something intimate, spiritually and morally uplifting and therefore beautiful as the family ritual, became diluted in simple human greed...does that mean he actually refuses to perform these rituals and is giving up on trying to save his wife? - or, as you suggest, is it the result of grief? i guess it's a bit of both, plus the heavy psychological baggage. I'd say you took a smart decision, you do need a film and why not film Nathan's life story... at least you're learning a lot on a human level..:) best of luck and take care, Resa
