‘Stress’ in Belgrade!

(Antoni’s report as a participant at the 6th International Youth Media Summit Belgrade, Serbia   1-12/8/2011)

Once more the plane took off and my adventure begun.

I had never been in Serbia before, so I was a little anxious for what I was going to see there! I only knew that my plan this year was to shoot a good film! I filled my suitcase with last year’s experience and the necessary equipment and I felt ready to meet the beautiful Belgrade.

After two days of sightseeing and a few short tours around the city we separated into groups before start writing our script. The Summit had seven issues and every group had to choose one of them to shoot. My most memorable moment during the trip was when someone asked me if I was a filmmaker. To be honest, I didn’t know what to say. Eventually, I said yes and I am not regretting it, cause from the first moment you will make a film (it’s not important how good it is, or how professional it seems), you are a filmmaker!

After spending one day trying to figure what to write in the script, we came up with a nice idea and decided to shoot it. We didn’t want our film to examine the same old stuff about health like smoking, drugs, alcohol etc. We wanted to show a more profound part of the problem. Mental health and stress matters to anyone, we thought, so we chose that issues. “Stress” also became the film’s title. I and my Spanish friend Arnau were the directors of the group “Health”. The shooting with Angela from Spain and Nikola from Serbia (who were the main actors) lasted three days till we had all we needed for the editing part.

The editing part took us three days. Finally, when we finished we gave a presentation to the committee and when everyone watched it, they were excited about the result! So, our film was ready for the closing ceremony at the Gallery of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts! The trip had been completed and the goal was achieved!
