Before a baby is born, mom and dad never think about all the poopy diapers, kid puke, or the sleepless nights. Birthing a film is the same.
Hour 38. I’ve been awake since I don’t know when, editing through the night.
Our two-year project Solitaire is now a teen, rough and rebellious. After a year in South America, we’re now preparing for our second summer in Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, and Chile. All in the name of a film premiere and tour across the west this fall 2011. Like raising a child, the journey has many stories. Most of those will never make the final cut. So, in an effort to share some of our road wisdom, trials and tribulations, as well as delicious visuals from some of the world’s most beautiful mountain ranges, we offer you loyal Wild Snow readers this: ON THE ROAD WITH SOLITAIRE a 12-part web series following Sweetgrass Productions’ work on Solitaire. New episodes released on the 21st of every month, so stay tuned.
