the bird can’t fly

The whole machinery for “The Bird Can’t Fly” is put into operation. The producers flew to Cape Town. We appointed a line producer; Rachel Young from Razor Sharp Films. The days at her office are filled with meetings with possible key crew-members; in the mean time her team started working on the project. (photo Cape Town beach tonight)

We went to see the location for several times, both in rainy and sunny weather, had budget meetings and talked about figures and figures and figures and figures.

But I concentrated on the casting of little boy River. This won’t be exactly easy; biggest problem will be his language. I want the kid to be able to speak a kind of neutral English, while most kids here speak a rather strong Cape-Town accent.
