REBELS' DIARIES. 2.
REBELS' DIARIES. 3.
Aiming at authenticity and realism the producers, stont coordinator and director have organised a TRAINING CAMP for the actors - where they excersised in with the weapons and gear of the period, wearing the period clothes, sweating and running the forest hills with 10kilograms on their belly and excersising survival tasts as to experience the period and the "modus vivendi"of the characters. No one of the actor complained and no one of them wanted the camp to end. This was the point early on in pre-production when the true rebelious band was found.
REBELS' DIARIES. 4.
Some asks Ginger Rogers "what is like to dance with the best dancers in the whole worls?""Nothing much, she answers", it's like to dance as good as Fred Astaire, but on 8 centimeters high heels. For a woman it takes more to become a rebel, surpassing her femaile and mother's nature, but ones she does so, she will get to the end. In Bulgaria during those times of oppression almost every Bulgarian woman who was a rebel became a "voevoda"- rebel-leader. There were over 40 known female rebel-leaders.
THE REBELS. DOP.
Introducing one of the main rebels: the Cinematographer from Bulgarian Colombian decent Krum Luis-Alirio Rodriguez. The film is shot mostly with natural light on distant rural locations with lots of non-professional actors in extreme close-ups avoiding the clishes of the "period films". We aim at authentisity and realism as to bring up through a very unique true story a question with massive importance nowadays: how cruel we can be with the ones who are different.
Expect one day or another two more rebelious video:)
