Interview with Anne-Marie Warburton (Lead actress)
YOU ARE A DANCER AND CHOREOGRAPHER. WHAT WAS SPECIAL ABOUT THIS PROJECT?
This was the first time for me to work on such a film. I'm used to putting myself into different roles, but not in front of a camera—usually, it's on stage. It's similar but also different. I noticed that one must not exaggerate facial expressions in front of the camera. Due to the distance between the audience and the stage, sometimes we amplify our facial expressions. Working as a choreographer alongside Preslav Mantchev, the challenge was to make certain movements not look too dance-like, which is not always easy for dancers.
WHAT WERE THE BIGGEST CHALLENGES?
The most challenging part was having to jump off the roof in the final scene; that was exciting!
WHAT WERE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS?
There were many! The process of shooting fascinated me a lot. Seeing how everything comes together and what all is needed to produce a film like this was very interesting. The most beautiful part was meeting so many new and wonderful people. After a week, it felt like we had become a small family!
WHAT ATTENTION DO YOU WISH FOR YOUR COLLABORATIVE PROJECT?
I wish for the film to get a lot of attention! I've now experienced how much work goes into it. This is all new to me. I wish for everyone who has put so much time and heart into the project that it becomes a successful film and that it truly touches people's hearts.
