Last night (September 8th) we ventured into the annual village feast of Naxxar, a beautiful town in the north of Malta, to film our first micro short entitled Our Lady as part of the Life Fragments series.
These improvised micro shorts will explore relationship dynamics, desires, dramas — fragments of human interaction, the uncertainty and awkwardness, the joy and discovery, the hints of complexity behind our intentions. We aim to film and release them via our YouTube channel every two to three months as a way for us to tell the little stories that make up life, explore new filming techniques, and work with a variety of cast and crew.
This is life. Improvised.
And it was a great start to the series with Our Lady filmed in the middle of The Nativity of Our Lady Feast, or festa as it is known locally, hundreds of people packing the town square to celebrate, a brass band marching, and fireworks igniting the sky. We were thrilled to finally work with Marysia S. Peres (Assassin's Creed, Love to Paradise) and with Miles Jackson as DP, our camera operator from In Corpore, the results were magical.
The film now enters post production, with Ivan Malekin choosing to edit on DaVinci Resolve for the first time, true to the desire of exploring new approaches with this series. Stay tuned to our News Section and our social media to find out when Our Lady will be released and be one of the first to watch.
