It’s hard to believe that it’s been about a little over two months since we came back to the States. A lot about our lives changed over those two months… More than I ever imagined.
Lauren, Gabriela, and Ron have all had major life changes. Lauren accepted an internship with the Photo Office at the White House. Gabriela accepted an internship with JJ Abrams’ production company, Bad Robot, and moved out to LA. Ron got back to LA and missed the spirit of the Camino so much that he’s now cycling across the United States, taking stunning photos all along the way (follow him on Instagram if you don’t already.)
I’m back to teaching here in Winston-Salem, driving down to Atlanta to work on post whenever I can with Emily. She’s building a computer with her husband Ryan for us to edit the film on (they’re a cool couple like that.)
There are a lot of things I’ve learned from the Camino. A lot of things that feel different now because I’ve had an experience like that. I’ll be writing more throughout the post process, processing my thoughts after the Camino, letting you in on this final leg of the journey, and giving you sneak peeks of the film.
I’ve always said this film is really “three caminos”… The journey of preproduction, the journey of actually doing the Camino, and the final journey of post. After taking time to get settled back into life stateside, that final journey is beginning.
