I am always looking for stories that can turn into a mini documentary. Sometimes the story is closer than you think. This is a film about Inga and her feelings for the place where she grew up. Last summer we spent a month up here and I made several films of the beautiful scenery. You can see one of them here. This summer I wanted to make a mini documentary and this is the story I found.
It’s originally shot for Philip Bloom’s weekend challenge: DISCIPLINE. But when I was done with the challenge version I decided to make a more edited version that improved the film. The unedited version is further down and you can also read about the challenge and my process of making the film.
Because the challenge was to make a movie that is edited in camera I first made the interview, edited that and put some music to it. Then I made a clip list based on the times on the timeline. After preparing all the gear, I tried to follow the clip list as well as possible. It turned out that I made all clips to long so I overshot it a lot. But when I just skipped the last shots it turned out quite good anyway.
