A Note From The Team
Before coming to Dominica, we had no idea of what we would discover.
We tried not to watch the previous year projects and behind the scenes, to avoid any influence and come to Dominica with a totally unspoiled vision.
We just had this “rotative” transition idea, which we never tried but wanted to make on this new film.
We also wanted to fly our drone, which appeared very difficult as the island is often wet and windy ! For example, we took the drone on our 8 hours walk to the boiling lake, but couldn’t fly it… That drone visited every part of the island with us !
On another unlucky note, we had troubles with our luggage, who took 4 days to arrive to Dominica. We had to improvise and shoot with other gear during this 4 days, but there is very few shots from these days in the final edit.
In the end, our goal was to personify the island, and invite the spectator to a virtual journey into Dominica, hoping it will also make them want to visit the island for real in the near future ! We used a local talent for the voiceover, recorded in a Dominican studio.
