Update #23 via Facebook: “We’ve just finished shooting the last scenes in We Put the World to Sleep. Duru was magnificent! Incredible performance! And I have no words to describe what we shot without spoiling it. We deviated from the script during a super long sustained impro of over 17 hours (began at 11am, ended at 5am next day). This weekend we might still shoot some extra scenes, and on Monday I begin editing!“
Update #22 via Facebook: “Both Duru and I are genuinely creeped out about a certain room we arranged in a certain way for We Put the World to Sleep. When I was in character the past days, I loved being inside. But today I took a break and it gives me creeps just when passing in front of the door. As preparation for the role, I was thinking that I’d have to sleep inside for a couple of nights. But one was more than enough to get into the character! I’m warning you, I won’t be responsible if anything happens to you as a result of watching this movie when available.“
Update #21 via Facebook: “Yesterday with the help of Duru I got inspired and came up with a very cool beginning and ending for We Put the World to Sleep! I wasn’t fully satisfied with what I had before and now I am. One day of shootings left, can’t wait to begin editing the film!“
Update #20 via Facebook: “About to wrap shootings for today. Remember I was saying yesterday I did the creepiest thing ever? Well, today I’ve outran my own record. And there are still a couple of days of shootings left where things will get even creepier! You’re in for a real treat in We Put the World to Sleep.“
Update #19 via Facebook: “The set design I finished today for the last scenes in We Put the World to Sleep is probably the creepiest thing I ever did. Was planning to also finish shooting today, but the set design took all my energy. I did shoot though one good moment which might end up in the final cut. Will resume tomorrow!“
Update #18 (May 25, 2021): Adrian Țofei has put together and published on his website a super comprehensive festival strategy for the movie! That’s an essential step forward for the production. Over 250 great festivals on the horizon!
