“Whether it's impossible or laughable, great men open up paths of battle. If there's a wall we break it down, if there's no path we make one with our bare hands.” I don’t think there is any better way to describe last weekend’s reshoot of 1+1. There’s nothing quite like the feeling you get after going against all odds and still managing to come out a winner.
Even though a lot of people were betting against us, we managed to reshoot two and a half episodes in two days with practically no delays. Like I said the last time around, the team was simply fantastic, managing to overturn all of the obstacles that crossed our path, while maintaining a cohesive work environment. Thanks again to our great cast, Rui Spranger, Mikaela Lupo and Salvador Nery, their experience and skilled acting were what made it possible for us to wrap everything up in the short time that we had.
After this past week of editing the results are looking promising. All six episodes will be finished and ready to air by November 23rd. Sources close to the big bosses are whispering about a February 2013 premiere. I’ll be sure to post any further developments as soon as the show’s air date is green lit.
We’re already getting some feedback on national magazines, thanks to Mikaela Lupo’s agency, Glam. You can check out their press release right here.
Reação Espontânea is on tracks for a successful November 23rd wrap-up as well. After finishing up the last set of interviews, all six episodes are now in an advanced editing stage. The first episode is already good to go, with four more on the way. Funny enough it’s the pilot episode that’s giving us a bit of a headache. One of its interviews is scheduled for November 18th! That’s right just five days before the due date. I hope it goes smoothly, I don’t want to lose any sleep over this.
If everything goes according to plan I hope to have all of the other five episodes ready for post-production by the end of next week.
Back to the editing room I go to get ready for the final stage. If you don’t hear from me over the next few weeks, no need to worry, I promise I’ve been eating and getting at least eight hours of sleep.
Just remember, whatever problem comes your way the solution is always as simple as one plus one!
