One of those days

The vast majority of all days in the life of the small-town filmmaker, actually. We lost a funding today, for which hopes were at an all time high. This one would have shifted the project into production, after 4 years of development. We ran against 16 other projects, out of which at least two were feature films (the ones to win top 2 spots), and came out at no 6.

There's talk of a new call later in the year, for which we can compete again. In a couple of days, new hopes will spring once more. Until then, it's one of those days.

Father Lucian

Here's a bonus picture of the great Cristian Fierbințeanu, took earlier in March in Bucharest. The man's a great artist and the lead figure in my upcoming short "The Unreal Afternoon of Father Lucian".

Pictured here upon hearing the news the I added a spoon of sugar in his coffee.

Yes, he's THAT bitter.

Bilet de iertare – a film by Alina Șerban

I say this in all humbleness: I'm so forever grateful to Alina Șerban for including me in her latest project, the short film "Letter of Forgiveness", as an actor of all things. The amazing part: I even got to say a line.

The film tells the story of Dinca, a young Roma slave in XIX century Walachia and Alina both directed and stared in the film as Dinca's mother.

Out (hopefully very) soon.
