Interview: Santo from Paper Cranes Production

I don't know whether this is obvious or not but I have always been passionate about filmmaking and all the crazy editing process of cinematography. There is something about video that just, explains and embraces more than a simple picture can. They say a picture is a thousand words but I say a video is everything. 

At the end of 2009, I discovered Paper Cranes Production from a Facebook post that one of my friends put up. I saw what they are capable of, what they believe in and what they truly portray. At that moment I just knew that one day, I will be one of those ladies in a PAPER CRANES pre-wedding videos haha. I was only 17 and somehow I seriously just want to get married to be in one of them! To me Paper Cranes is the level of amazing-ness that I will want to reach if I were a pro cinematographer, I am seriously obsessed.

I'm usually a very shy and awkward person, especially when meeting someone new. But I just had to do this interview on Paper Cranes! I need to know how they've become so big in just three years and why are they so awesome?! Fibi from Paper Cranes was kind enough to confirm my interview with the Director, Santo, and I am off to my first ever Skype interview. It was a beautiful day here in Melbourne and I think it was too in Sydney.

And this is how the interview went:

Thank you so much, Santo, for such a memorable and amazing interview. I am so inspired and so determined right now! I can't wait for your first ever Oscars: ) Hope everything goes well for you and your company in the coming years!

Interview: Erick from Karamel Magazine

Erick is my very good friend and he happens to own Melbourne's very own Karamel Magazine. We've known each other for about 4 years now and yet I can still remember the moment we both got introduced that day, him in his Prada shoes and Gucci sunglasses (I'm just making this up but I assure you this is what he wears most of the time). We used to sing together in a band called SixtyNine (I know, I know) and it's been very fun while it lasted hahaha.

Me and my friend Heather met Erick in Giraffe Cafe just in the CBD; while I eat my fatty cheesecake dessert and Erick with his Giraffe Cafe signature Soba noodles, we both talked about how it's like running a small business, and what it takes to be your own boss.

Here's how the interview went:

Erick, you are amazing. Never ever change! All the best to you and your company for the many years to come.
