Waiting for you – Short Film

Only a few of us in this world will be blessed to share a very special and unique bond that will forge the purest and strongest kind of love God has created.
This film is about the moment when Maggie, blessed with this kind of love, is sharing her feelings towards her loved one.

During Summer Holidays in Poland, my wife, Maggie, inspired me to come up with the idea of this short film.
With no crew, my wife and I were set to shoot the film in Gdynia-Poland, a very beautiful countryside.
The film was shot over 1 day; the whole shoot took almost 2 hours during the golden hour before sunset.
Everything was handheld using only a camera strap and a monopod to have a rather steady handheld feel to the shots.
