Making a Movie

    During pre-production for The Out of the Woods Project, our Director Jason Solari had everyone at The Initiative sit down and watch one of the greatest cinematic masterpieces: The Devil Wears Prada. After the movie was finished he referenced back to the scene where Anne Hathaway finds a way to get a copy of the unpublished Harry Potter book.

    “This is what you’re going to do,” he said, “you’re going to make the impossible happen. You’re not going to know what you’re doing, or how to do it, but you’re going to get the job done and that’s what making a movie is. We’re making the impossible happen.”

    Leave it to Mr. Solari to give us the biggest life lesson ever from Meryl Streep, but that’s exactly what we’ve been doing every day, making the impossible happen.

    Now we’ve spent the last three weeks knee deep in mud fighting off ticks, rain, wind and sleep deprivation. If this has shown us anything so far it’s that we’re all a lot stronger than we thought. We’re finding new ways to work around our limited resources and push ourselves so that we can create a story worth telling and challenging ourselves to go above and beyond the quality of our last feature.

    Anyone who’s worked in film knows it isn’t easy, it’s tiring, stressful and anything but glamorous, but there’s nothing we’d rather do more.
