This is one of my first short films I made, back in the day when I had dreams of becoming a filmmaker and was living in Los Angeles. This movie was made in 2013, and for some reason we did two edits…
I had the first one short, made by a friend who already knew how to edit. Then I made my own, which I titled so humbly “Director’s Cut’ it was twice the length, but for some reason the people I ended up showing this little flick to, enjoyed the longer version better.
Then I don’t really know what happened, but I lost the movie file in one of my hard drives, and the download website where I had stored it, had deleted it. I thought I would never see my version again, until today… I stumbled upon it, exactly where I thought : one of my old hard drives.
So if you have the patience to watch this old thing, that was made without any means or actual budget, and is frankly quite hilarious to see how we managed to do anything for the story, then please, enjoy !
Whether I want to think about you, or not. I still do. You’re like the sweetest poison that I gladly took. I’m infected in every area of my body, and I still can’t get enough. What a beautiful overdose that is LA.
I’ve always loved the smell of chaos, right before it starts…
There’s an indescribable feeling of calmness, for example before a storm hits. That’s basically what if feels like being in LA. You’re like surrounded by this constant feeling of pre-catastrophe. Nothing happens really, probably because everything is happening at the same time. So it’s just like a million-people buzzing, and the chillness in the air, is the result of it.
LA, you are driving me crazy… but no matter what happens, I don’t want to go far away.
The end of my vacay is nearing, and I just hate knowing that fact. There’s no place in this whole wide world, where I’d rater be depressed and sarcastic. Something about this city makes me feel like I’m normal… probably because no one is, so that’s the actual “normal” here. Just being yourself, you exist in layers, and people praise you for it. Gosh, I wish this was the case where I live.
Whenever I’ll need to feel my normal-self again, I’ll just be right back at ya ! 💋
Last pictures from our day out in Santa Barbara, all in black and white, and a little video for the memories 🖤
I will gladly come back here anytime I can, the city offered so many great experiences. Between the heavy-poured cocktails, the amazing seafood and smoked fishes, the wine tastings, the cool people and the good finds in vintage stores… it was really lovely.Continue reading →
