This is one of those projects that you are proud of... (more…)
This summer, in August to be more precise, we've got an email from Oscar saying that he wants to shoot a music video for his new song Haka Haka Haka (Move your Body). It's not on our daily basis that we make music videos for Swedish artists, so we got to agree pretty fast on therms and everything, this way we were ready for this shoot by the end of the month, right after we've booked Denisa Hodisan our main actress. We had a pretty tight 2 days of shooting with Oscar and our actors, this meant a lot of planning but we made it. (more…)
We took a little break from writing for the last month. Truth is, we are involved in a lot of time demanding projects that take us all the spare time we have. We've shot this in March and we couldn't release it then and we decided to do it now. (more…)
2016 was a really interesting year for us. It was a busy year with a lot of productions and two of them there will be screened at TIFF16. This post is dedicated to these two films. (more…)
In the last year (and now I mean a little bit more than 2016, with a few months from 2015) we've produced several films here at Hola Media, from shorts to feature. And we are not planning to stop here. We want to do more because we can do so much more than what we did last year. (more…)
Changing locations because of the weather, or because something changed since you went scouting is a pain in the ass, but this is what is happening in the real life. I know, nobody tells you to get prepared somehow, but pay attention to this: Prepare to fail! (more…)
Something like this happened... We had everything planned for 3 days, but because of the availability of the locations and actors personal schedule, we did it in 6.
In this article, I will tell you what happened during day 4 and 5. (more…)
Watch out! Reading this blog would imply a decent 10 minutes, a cup of coffee and maybe a good laugh. And these are uncensored and honest stories that happend all the time everywhere.
Day 3 arrived. We already thought ahead whatever issues might appear, so in our third morning we were in the mood of shooting some awesome footage.
Then this happened:
Day #2 was our hardest day. We had planned everything, and we needed to shoot in 3 locations. Two of them were rented apartments, and one was the famous Joben Bistro. (why famous? well, it is on top 20 with best interior design in the world. Daily mail also wrote about them : LINK )
We were supposed to start shooting at 10. The schedule for day #2 was like this.
I know you probably heard me before saying that we are going to make weekly blog posts regarding what we do and every time we didn't. Well, it's not that we don't want to...or I don't want that, but we always find something "more important" to fill our time with. Sometimes it's work, other times it's family (this doesn't actually counts, because family is first no matter what) and we managed somehow not to post for huge periods of time.
The thing is, how are we seen by others on the internet reflects on us and this blog, it's not quite what we wanted when we launched our website. This time, I am not going to say that we will write a new blog post every week, or twice a week, or whatever, we are just going to write them and release them online whenever we are doing something interesting. Oh...and believe me when I say interesting I mean it.
