Dear readers, 2013 is a big year for me! I just completed my first position on a feature film set as a 1st Assistant Director! The film is a swiss production called “20 Regeln für Sylvie” (20 Rules for Sylvie) and the shoot has been great (challenging and crazy at times, of course, but great!). I had a great deal of responsibility, and saw how all the mechanisms on a big movie set work. However, I was never terrified. To me, the joy was the dominating feeling. It is the strongest confirmation in my professional life so far that I have chosen the right profession for myself! Thanks to that amazing team and our crazy crazy CRAZY director Giacun Caduff, who gave me this chance!
The second big thing that just happened is: Photo Botos published a photo of mine on their site! It is one of my favorites, I took it on a spot I love: on the Isola Del Giglio. On it you can see a rock, shaped like a tooth, and behind it the Isola Montechristo (famous from the movie “the count of Monte Christo”). The light was perfect, it was a magic moment. Take a look and read the full story here 🙂
I’ ve declared my love for this place a few times now, and I can’ t wait to go back. There’ s such a feeling of bliss when you swim in the clean, turqoise water in the baia del Campese, or take the surfboard and go out to the farthest rock you see there, which is called the “faraglione”, or the “tooth” by us. You can also go on foot to that spot. From there you can see the Island of Monte Christo, and if the sight is clear, you even see Sardinia.
What is your favourite spot on earth? Please comment below!
On a rainy weekend like this, I try to think of the sunny spots on earth, like my favourite Island, the Isola Del Giglio. Its name might be familiar to you because of the cruise ship that is still lying there, but I’ ve known the Island for over 20 years. I love the Italian culture, the ocean, the climate and size of the island, the fact that two thirds of it is integral nature reserve and the macchia. Then there is good coffee (like anywhere in Italy) and in autumn you find Porcini. Then take a look at the picture and you’ ll find a couple more reasons why I love this place so much. And I don’ t like the fact that the island’ s pure waters would almost have been polluted and lots of animals would have lost their natural habitat. All for a captain who wanted to show off instead of taking his responsibility seriously.
Please comment below for any feedback, questions, and so forth.
Nature is so changeable. For Instance, you can watch a sunset at the same spot a million times, it won’ t look the same twice. I was fascinated by the ambiance that night in Giglio, so I captured it with a picture. Enjoy!
Here’ s a breathtaking moment I captivated with a camera. You can see the Island of Monte Cristo (famous from the Film “The Count Of Monte Cristo”) in the background. The photo was taken last fall on the beautiful Isola Del Giglio: One of the most inspiring places I know!
