Things usually take time to achieve.
We had a side project in mind when we went to Uyuni last year. It was short dance film. We did a first attempt of shooting during one sunset. We only wanted to give one day to that project because the list of things we wanted to shoot there was long 😉
It ended up being quite challenging. And cold, as expected. The sharp ground was a surprise though, as the conditions out there didn't allow us to go where we wanted. It was quite difficult for me and at the end I didn't feel satified at all with what I did, without gaving seen any footage. It was just a "I know I could have done better" type of feeling. I was frustrated that I couldn't move the way I envisioned because of the freezing water and painful ground to move on. Or my capacity to adapt to those circumstances.
At that point I was blaming myself for not being prepared enough. But that's a waste of energy. Now I know I want to go back and try again, to finish that project or use the experience we gained to serve a new project.
