Early morning at the Global Language Department in Grayville. Tired students moving chairs, clearing a white wall as a backdrop for today's photo shooting. Some of them vanish in the maze of rooms under the roof, reappearing as heroes, real-life and super, wondering - perhaps - why we would need more than one film poster.
Wiping their sleepiness out of their eyes, they face the camera of Karla Kolumna
who is in charge today, directing the light, the people, the focus. No one complains, even if bodies hurt, sleep catches up with them, trips are made back and forth, tees are ironed with water and a blowdryer.
At the end of that last day of shooting the film we thought we would have time for ourselves now. Sure we knew there were posters to make, flyers to prepare and yes, we could do it the easy way: Just take some picture, some line, some close-up.
This team is just...the most dedicated I have ever had the honor to work with. They want to excell and do so. They want to create the best-possible movie. Just think about it: A superheroes movie produced by exactly 8 students! Isn't that amazing?!
The posters will surprise you, we hope. I will share them here eventually. All eight will be in them because they rightly deserve it. I will reserve a prominent place at home for the picture that preserves their dedication and humor and spirit.
...to remind me that, as I sink into my chair, unable to move any more due to total exhaustion, I should stop complaining about too much work.
Thank you, my SUPER!Heroes.
