I don't really know when I wrote last time. We have been so busy with editing project 3 - that was so hard! But I am finally done. I hope everyone involved is happy with my film! Thanks again to all!

Now these days I've been trying to figure out project 4 - it goes so so fast - I'm freaking out! Too much pressure when you're like 1.5weeks after shooting project 3, be done with everything before project 4. I have half a story... I don't know what to do. I need good lucks.

On Saturday it was Halloween party at stepanska! It was fun!pictures from editing room with Julia, pictures from a wrap set on Angie's project 3, pictures from Halloween and a break on one of the islands with Eshaan.

FINALLY LAST DAY OF THE LONGEST WEEK IN MY ENTIRE LIFE!

I was AD for Angie and had to wake up so early. But I was on a happy mood that no one really could destroy. It went well the whole day and I bought baguettes for everyone and chicken for gluten-Ellie ;)

It was a good ending to this week, after complications, sweat, tears, laughing to death etc etc - we made it.

Afterwards I went up to editing in school where Alice had been for 6h, haha! I looked at my video recordings and it was so complicated to pick good ones because we also decided to do longer takes than short ones - which means much harder than normal! But I hope I can manage to put this all into one film.

In the evening I was about to jump into the tram but changed my mind and went to Globe where other people from the school were sitting. I ate Cesar salad, so yummy. And then Julia from sweden came home with me to sleep - she couldn't sleep at home because it was too cold there. She borrowed my cactus sweat pants hehe and was so cute. Then we laughed a lot before bed.

Today it was my turn. It didn't start so well: me cooking for like 10 people on the night before and then realize that I didn't have any bowls to carry the food in. And then in the morning when I came to school, I was alone for a time. Ellie came quite quick, but the rest of the crew was still sleeping. A little bad start, yes. But I tried to be merry anyway. Why be irritated at people you're gonna work together the whole day...

This day was a rollercoaster, I laughed until I died at some times and cried an other time. I had the best crew and actors. I think it was just me that was irritated by the fact that the idea in my head didn't come out ascwell on film as I wished for. But it was a complicated and totally out of the box idea so in one way I'm happy I took that step, but then I also thought, "why can't I do stories about easier things?" Hehe. Well, that's me I guess.

In the evening Axel was so nice to buy me food after the long day while I had to shop groceries for Angie's shoot that is tomorrow. I'm off to sleep now. Goodnight!

Thanks my crew and actors for a fun, hard working and educating day together! Love you all!

Today my dad came to visit me! I'm so happy, I've missed him so much. And he brought a lot of winter clothes for me and... Swedish candy! So yummy!

We went to my school and looked around, and then we went over the river, ate good chicken and went back over the famous Charle's Bridge.

Later on we had to say goodbye for a while because I was Art Director at Tina's shoot. It was amazing, she's a genius when it comes to decorate sets, and I'm so lucky to be a part of her set and learn more! :)

Later in the evening, me and dad ate at McDonald's, we met Axel and Filip and then we went home and watched Doctor Who, my dad was the one that got me into the show - It's the best show! Goodnight!

Today I was camera assistant on KGs set. It was so fun and we laughed to death after the moment KG said cut. Haha, she had this amazing TV and game show idea where there are brutal games where you can "bet" your toes or other body parts for money. So sick and so funny!
Later on afterwards I met up with my actors Julia and Victor and we borrowed a school studio to rehearse the dancing for my film. They are so good dancers, we had so much fun! :) I think it's gonna be really good on Saturday.

And in the evening I came home to a really trashy apartment. my roomie that goes second year at school was shooting his movie about a couple that lived there and they had a very uncleaned apt. But I was cool, he promised me to clean up - it looks better than before now! Yay, go Axel go! :)

I watched a little Doctor who and talked to Issy from New Zealand that was Axel's actress. she is so cool and nice!

Today me and Alice reaaaaally slept in. What a night it was! Really fun but also very challenging. I had never used the URSA camera before and didn't know it was gonna be so heavy on my shoulder. I think I did well and I hope that the director, Julia, is pleased with my filming. We went to the apt we filmed in to help take the equipment back to school.

Then we went for lunch at McDonald's hehe = cheap and wifi, to study some more. Then me and Alice went to a like butterix store where they had a lot of costumes, make up, masks and other crazy things! I found some props and costumes to my own film on Saturday.

Later we sat at Starbucks trying to figure out how the camera is going to move on my film. Alice is my DoP and I'm so happy with that! She has a lot of bold ideas, which I love. And it helps that she is Swedish. At the same time, she tried to figure out how her creature in her movie is going to look like. We had a lot of laughs as usually.

Then after that it was time to join some friends to go around Prague district 1 to see a lot of Light festival installments and design things around the city. Really cozy and cool! Some of them were amazing, some of them was just a 10meter green tunnel, nothing else hahaha! we stood in line for a house with the tunnel for 20min. After we went through it and saw the exist I'm like: WAS THAT IT??? Haha. Crazy.

Friday, another week has past! oh lord, it goes in full speed. This morning I woke up early because, WAR was yet to come. Friday at 9 in the morning, Steve was gonna put up the rest of the film days that we could choose from for the project 3. I needed my Saturday, all my crew members could, and both my actors and the Acting studio I was intended to shoot in was free. So all I needed was to write my name on that blank space on Saturday. But I was not alone. For more people wanted to have that Saturday.... But I got it! yay! Thanks to Jacopo in my class - standing tall in that first place, making me go second!

Later me and Alice went to Globe I guess (?) to eat. And then we both had our green light meetings. Means that the directing teacher has a final word if you can film a project or not. You represent your script, your budget and your shooting schedule (in what order to film the scenes and why). We both were so nervous, but we both made it! On my meeting my teacher was very happy and proud(?) to see that I have managed to develop so much in just a couple of weeks for being totally new to the film world, and also because I like to challenge myself with moving fighting scenes and now; dancing film. She was happy with my script, told me to work a little more with my schedule but everything else looked very good! ("Party dancing")

Right after that, me and Alice met my actors (and ofc friends from school); Victor and Julia - all three of them are Swedish, so it was easier to explain in Swedish than in English. I don't mind speaking English, but in the movie world you sometimes need some complicated words to describe the actor's character, and those words are sometimes easier in my own language. Anyway, we talked about the scene and how I imagined it would look like. The actors started to dance freely in the room to songs I might choose for the movie. From my POV, its gonna be really fun to do this dance film together!

In the evening, I went to Julia's (USA) project 3 shoot. Her's was one of the first ones. Cannot believe she was already ready to start filming -- I had just got my green light the same day. I was her DOP (camera girl) and was not familiar to the URSA camera. Much bigger than the Black Magic Pocket camera I'm used to. I had it on my right shoulder (we are talking like 10kilo) for up to 8 hours. Although my AC (camera assistant) Lydia helped me A LOT (thank you), it was really heavy and like crushed my shoulder fo life (jk Julia)....

...but, I'm really into challenges and this was a TUFF one! And we made it. Its one of those challenges where you are about to die that same day, but in the future you are proud and just laughing about it and say that I made it! :) Also, we were an only women's crew and we kicked ass!

Today -- ugh, I can't start the post with another word than today. We had our last sound class - which I feel is too soon. I feel like I need to know more things! oh well. Internet can save me I guess. Later we had Editing. And because we are finished, klara, finito with our project 2 edit, we showed our movies to our teacher and to each other. Mine didn't get like any critic, I'm so happy! yay! my teacher said it was kind of perfect even. well thank you, thank you very much. I mean, I probably worked like 24-26 hours on that thing. Sitting on weekends and late nights - but I don't mind, it is so much fun! I also got a lot of help from Alice, thank you buddy <3

Watch the film in the bottom of this blog post.

Later the girls and I went to Alice's house to study, but first we ate at a really cute café. The studying went really well. I have a big problem (my former teachers will know) that I usually have these great ideas, and cannot put them into functional sentences on paper. And when I explain the paper to someone in words, it goes fine. But its the transporting from mind to paper that is so hard. But Angie, Lydia and all of my gals helped me with my project 3 script! I am forever grateful. Angie and Alice also acted for my story board. Thanks, again hehe!

Then me and Alice went shopping a little and then I went home. I also got a little love from home! Miss you Selma! <3


I am really happy with my project two, although it was a really struggle with continuity errors and sound clicking. But over all, I think its good!

This day I woke up pretty early for a Saturday. It was a casting session in town where we directors could go to see different students and old actors and young actors perform infront of us. God I love when the first one came upon stage. He was 7 years old and so so shy infront of a 70 people audience. But he did great! And then there was a lot of other people performing a short script, and then it was two boys around 11 years old. I love kids that act good! I love kids over all, but still - they were amazing. The process went on for 3hours, which was too long - but at least I got to learn a lot about how a casting goes.

Later on we went thrift shopping in a 3euro/30kr/99CZK for anything kind of store. Jackets, bags, anything really.  

In the evening I went on and bought winter gloves that were really expensive, but I thought; Hey, I'm gonna wear them out in the cold whole winter while shooting people's movies. But then comes the worst. There I am, really happy with my new gloves, on my way to school at night to meet up with friends to go and play laser tag (or laser dome). When I get off the tram -- I start to feel rather cold on my hands, looks down, realizes that I forgot my gloves on the tram..... Oh my, how stupid of me! But at least it wasn't my phone or anything, but still - I had amazing gloves, for 14min of tram ride. 

On the laser tag we made up funny nicknames and were divided into teams. I had a girl power team with Issy from New Zealand, KG from USA and Carro from Sweden. We didn't won, but I had pretty good score and it was fun! 

Then later in the evening, Alice, Eshaan, Julia, Julia, Rasmus and Issy etc went to this amazing rock club: VAGON. The songs and video music they played were awesome: We will rock you, I love rock n roll, all the small things, highway to hell, another brick in the wall, sweet home Alabama. And I love that Issy loves all the rock n roll people like me! hehe.... And that was just the beginning. Weird people there but we had our crew and it was really fun....

....Then some weird random man sexual harassed me and it was not so much fun anymore. I hate men. Its like, when we girls are clubbing, we need to tell each other that we are going to the bath room or going to the bar to our friends, because a thing like this usually happen to us. It happens all the time. To girls you would never think would be harassed. Im so angry and disappointed in this world of men. But I had my girls as backup and Axel my roomie waited for me to get home so I calmed down. Guys, you are the best. <3
