The shooting of DAWN was full of surprises. It was my first time making a film with such a big team and over more than three days of shoot. We went to a secret lake in the area of Berlin during the summer of 2017. We shot day and night, being eaten by mosquitoes and enjoying the water, until it came crashing down on us and our gear before shooting the last scene. We had to run for cover in our flip flops, carrying the expensive rental gear. As I said, it was full of surprises and it took me more than a year to edit this sorta feature film.
I'm especially grateful to Magena Yama, star of the film, who gave her best and who has supported me since then.
I hope you enjoy the making of!
