The woods

A couple of days ago I brought my camera and a bunch of smoke granades to the forest. I had to do some filming for the theatre play Nico – Sphinx of Ice, that will have premiere in two weeks at the Royal Dramatic Theatre here in Stockholm. Shooting film is usually a teamwork, it ain’t rare to find 20 people next to you on set, so there’s nothing as beautiful of being just by yourself, in the calmest of forests, with your camera and an ambition to make something beautiful. Ok, it’s true, it’s always a hassle. The camera is heavy, you’ll get biten by mosquitoes and the smoke granades kills your lounges, but anyway.
The hours I spent in the forest the other day was really beautiful. I got some footage and it will be in the play, for sure.
