Kevin Costner

This month of October I did an interview with Kevin Costner. It was amazing!

I was having breakfast with my wife and we were talking about destiny and positive thinking. My phone rang and it was a production coordinator from Globo (a major TV network in Brazil). She asked me if I could do an interview in 2 days from that time with Kevin Costner. WOW! Totally random. I agreed with the terms and prepared for the big event.

Kevin is going to Brazil with his band to do a concert in Bauru, a city in Sao Paulo. This TV network is promoting the show and they sent a reporter to ask some questions. Her name is Luciana Martins and she is very talented and special professional.

Kevin received us in his new house in Santa Barbara. He is a very humble and nice person. He got very excited about us and he even showed us his property. I really enjoyed the time we spent there.

The interview was amazing! I used the sun as my back light and to get more exposure in their faces I used a 750W ctb balanced hard light pointing to them. It gave me at least 2 stops more in their faces, enough to balance the back sunlight.

My wife went there with me and she helped me with the set up. Kevin also liked her. Well who doesn’t???

POSITIVE – A Test of life

I am working on my first 20 minutes short film.
There are many challenges in order to make this film a reality.
Location is hard to find when you don’t have money and crew. I need to count on other people’s help and it is just not that easy.
Thank God I do have some good people helping me. My right hand man is FELIPE COSTA. He is one of the most talented and responsible person I’ve ever met. Coco Cook also is a great professional and she really knows how to handle everything I ask her.

This Thursday night I have my first shooting scheduled. It’s going to be the nightmare sequence, where the main actress Veronika is going to dialogue with herself. That’s crazy huh!!! My teacher will help us to make it happen. He is the best cinematographer I meet in my whole life. I will have the pleasure to work with him. His name is Charles Haine.

Tomorrow I have my first meeting with my main casting. We are going to discuss relationship, objectives, background story, and so on. It is important to discuss the schedule also.

Tonight i will call my crew and let them know that we are going to be ready to go.
I pray for God to bless this project.
