At Filmmaker Magazine, writer/director, and author of The Absolution of Roberto Acestes Laing, Nicholas Rombes, has a piece about the production of his first film, The Removals. He's come up with a list of six takeaways learned from the production, but he also talks about the unspoken collaborative spirit and DIY adventurousness that makes making movies so much damn fun.

"Films capture and preserve specific, real-time moments, moments that can’t help but be documents of a location, a place, a person, a feeling. Even films without any visible human presence, like animated films, are documents of the technologies used to create them. Reality leaves its fingerprints on every film. I felt this more than ever during the filming of The Removals, as if what we were really filming and recording wasn’t so much the narrative feature itself, but rather the process of making that feature. The real drama is internal and well hidden, and yet visible everywhere: on the faces of the actors, in the sun’s reflection on plate glass, in the sound of insects in the tall grass, in the storm clouds that may portend a catastrophic weather future, in the on-screen intimacies between the actors that suggest, perhaps, depth-charge feelings that will never reach the surface."

You should check out the whole piece, to hear about racing to the Field of Corn in advance of a massive summer storm, the effect rain itself had on the colors, and the process of turning the story into a movie.
