I read an article in an online men’s magazine about the guy, and that is how we decided to make the film about him. Then, I went to see his stand-up to get to know him better. That is how I met Dimi, and afterwards the guys at B2Y Productions give me the green light to make the film. As you saw in the credits, we are super small team. Funny enough, on the day of the shoot, we didn’t expect to have any snow. It was supposed to be cold, because it was winter, but no snow. My shot-list went directly to the trash because of that. So, we improvised a lot. It was very cold, snowy, and white! At the end, it turned out very well though. It was a great adventure, and I can say that I am pretty happy with the end result.
