I thought the film was there, even though there was something that was not working, but I could not say what it was. I came to RCS with the idea to do some make up but it turned out that there was much more than a bit of make up to do. The beginning of the film was inintelligibile for the international audience and the urge for my protagonists' fight was not there. I had given many things for granted. That is the problem when there is not enough distance with respect to the footage. Working with Iikka and Menno allowed me and the editor to watch our film from an International perspective and discover weaknesses and strengths. By going once again through the footage (10 years of footage!) in order to provide answers made us discover a treasure hidden because of decisions made long ago. The film has incredibly improved, the protagonists have become tridimensional, the storyline is at the service of the protagonists. There is no doubt I will ask RCS' help also in the future. Thanks!
What would I change?Emails and a skype call worked very well to understand each other and discuss solutions. It could be interesting if, during the process, there would be the chance to talk to each other while attending a co-pro market or a festival. However, the workflow worked very well for us, so I have no complaints at all.
