"If it can be written, or thought, it can be filmed."- Stanley Kubric
In the 60's my dad went to the movie theater and watched "Spartacus". This event had a great impact on my life. My dad decided that if he ever had a daughter he would name her just like Spartacus' wife. Years later, I was born and named as Spartacus' wife. For many years of my life I had no idea what my name meant, but I always knew where my name came from and who had directed the movie.
Who would've thought that the director of that movie would become one of my favorite directors of all times?
All my life I've been a movie fan and I was always fascinated with the making of them. A year ago, I found myself with the opportunity to work on a commercial as a production assistant, it was awesome. After this experience and helping out some friends with other short films, I decided I wanted to be a filmmaker.
The whole process of making a movie is chaotic and exhausting.It involves creativity, imagination, collaboration and thrusting others. It's a lot of people working together for one thing only, the film. After working for 10 days, 13 hours a day, and sleeping almost anywhere you can, you only want to go back to your own bed and never do this again. However, when you see the results of what you so arduously worked for you just can't wait to go again on other filmmaking adventure. What can I say, it's just addictive.
