I love the silence of the midnight,Everything seems so peaceful when everybody’s asleep.And there’s a sound in the air,It’s nothing, but it’s there,Like music,Inviting you to dream,And to get inspired
When Ciane told me that Cup Noodles is the best instant noodle I didn't take her seriously! how much different could it be from the rest of them? but the truth is it was really different!!! so when she said the original japanese ve...Read more
When you look at the sources of your inspirations,
It amazes you!
And what’s surprising is how much good comes out
Of the pains! Perhaps they are the best sources of inspiration!
Makes you wonder in desperate times to be inspired
You may need to cause some pain!
The Broken is finally finished and i just uploaded my final edit on vimeo.
The Broken from Sam Salek on Vimeo.
“No matter how experienced you become,
You always need to lose something to truly appreciate its importance.”He was standing on a bridge,
In a cold Friday evening.
He could hear some people laughing somewhere not too close,
And a baby crying.
He had a strange feeling, he knew that he had to let go
But it wasn’t easy,
Wasn’t easy to let go of a thought, of a dream, a wish ... To stop daydreaming once and for all!
And to face the reality just as it is.
Finally the filming of the fall is over! the quality of sound was horrible due to the strong wind yesterday and perhaps not the best volume settings on the camera! it sounded perfectly fine in the headphones!!! The editing will take long especially now that i need to do voice over too.Read more

Started at 11 a.m., finished at half past seven in the evening! what a day! I could barely walk after we finished the filming but then a beer plus a cigarette and a good chat outside in a nice weather worked a miracle! I knew we got some good shots but I was worried about the overall result, but after doing a quick edit tonight now I'm feeling much better... it's ok so far. I had to cancel the filming for today because of the rain and hopefully we can get the two remaining scenes done in this weekend.Read more
The rehearsal went alright.. the hardest part of being the director is to interact with the actors ... sometime I'm not sure how far i can go to get what I want. There was a big problem with the radio microphones which took us ages to fix ... good thing we tried before starting to film on location! There's still a lot to do ... tomorrow the first day of shooting; internal scenes.
