Even before we sent the cut, the questions Iikka asked helped put a lot of things in perspective. One thing that really worked for us is that both Per and Iikka were acutely aware of what we wanted and they helped us get the best version of that. Having two mentors working on the film is an excellent idea. Sometimes they agree and sometimes they don't, but all of this helps create more and more possibilities for us to play with as story tellers. Ideas and suggestions are one thing, but to be able to give them with a sense of humour and with a lot of love is of unbelievable help when one is questioning and doubting everything which is pretty much what happens while editing. It is impossible to talk of an organisation without talking about the people who work in it. And these people love documentaries, and it shows.
What would I change?Creating a unique platform such as this, keeping it affordable and helping with suggestions on how to fundraise, putting us in touch with people, all of this has made it one of the most fulfilling experiences for us. RCS actually went much beyond the brief of what they say they will do on the site, so I cant really say what they could add, they've got a really great process going! Its an honest, transparent, human way to work and we can’t imagine making a film without their support anymore. We wish you all the very best and hope to work with you again.
