One hour of train, some bus and I wake up Tarek. Is 13:30. Is maybe time to have some breackfast. Not easy in his part of town. Buildings were people sleep, few shops around, loads of roadworks, send, iron spikes, cement.
The influence of the volcanic blast resounds in the silent sky. No strange plane stripes to cut the blue. We walk a bit. We chat. We enter a barely passable place and have a tea, a sandwich. We talk films. Is great to chat with Tarek about films.
On the way there I read his new script. Is going to be shoot sooner or later and I would be honoured to be of the party. We talk actors. Acressess, Godard, Fellini, Antonioni. Our usual ride, to put us in the mood.
At his house again to see what Tarek have been doing for a couple days with the RED footage made in the 19th March. The shooting of the White People short. The guys are great, all of them, I feel very proud… just few minutes of work together. They have so much inside… the film shot by Victor looks gorgeous and is already there, in fact. Lot of work is to be done, with the text that has to be adapted and the sound, but it’s got the look already and the rhythm. All I wanted to see. Got a copy in my hard drive, to work on sound and on dialogue. Is going to be a funny week with many many things to do.
I started on the way beck to write down the proposal draft to send to Piksel festival in Norway. Tonight I’ll put some on the wiki maybe.
