Eleuthera #4: The Making of
After we spent almost two weeks on Eleuthera the big day was about to come … the day that we were actually going out to a few very small islands off the southern tip of Eleuthera, the Schooner Keys. There we would shoot the last shots that we needed to make our short-film ‘Shark&Lion’ complete. Since we have never been there and just knew the location from Google Maps, we knew that we would have to be very flexible and see what we could do with whatever we will find there. It was not just completely different in terms of shooting than we thought, we also had absolutely crazy weather. From sunshine to thunderstorm … from sunburn to lightning … from tropical paradise to sandfly hell. This is what makes the short-film special to us and will keep this days in our memory forever.
Since this is the last part of our series about Eleuthera … well there might be coming some Dronies and short Clips, but the series about our trip to Eleuthera is over … we would like to thank all the nice people we met. We had such a great support from so many new friends.
Special Thanks to:
Al Curry and his wife Janice not only hosted us for two weeks, took us diving and made us feel like family, Janice also cooked every night for us. Thank you Janice and Al, we are lucky to be able to have friends like you.
Shannon and Bruce for letting us stay at their house.
Daryl, Anderson and Ran for running the boats. We really enjoyed your company.
Chad Melton for your patience while diving. We know it is sometimes boring to wait until the guys finish the dive after more than 90 minutes.
"Two weeks goes by really fast ... doing photography, sharkdiving and a lot of experimental things. Like I said the other night at dinner ... it gives me the chance to do the fun things rather than do the things that we do all the time. It's just one of those memories you don't forget. It was a lot of fun. Great guys great time. So few people get to do what I get to do. I am a real lucky guy to be able to have friends like this" - Al
