This time, we were filming a project for Samsung. The story was about a girl who experiences an adventurous trip of her lifetime. As it was already decided that the main talent would be Eva Celia, we only needed to do the casting for the male talent.

For the production we decided to split the shooting days. The first day was the scene in the coffee shop where we focused on the daily life of the barista, and the second day was the adventure scene, where Eva travels to the pine forest.

The most challenging part of this project was for the Art Department because they needed to make a motor cycle workshop on the country road, as well as a hut in the middle of the pine forest. When we were doing recee, we found a workshop near our villa and we just needed to dress it up a little bit. The main challenge was making the hut in the middle of the rain forest from scratch, because it was quite an effort to climb up and reach the location. Luckily, Ares, our Art Director, managed to make the hut look beautiful in the forest. He also managed to make a swing over the river from scratch. It was so beautiful and looked like fun to swing on.
