The Sleeper Awakes


Filmed in the Czech country side, in early spring. Let me tell you, it was damn cold, and I believe Kate was severely underpaid for what she had to go through.

Still it was nothing compared to the making of I want to go home, which was filmed at the start of the European winter, in the ruins of an abandoned coal mine. The tempereture was -9 and I have never experienced such a cold in my life. At about 3am, a strange feeling came over me. I stopped shaking and although wearing only a silk shirt, I felt at peace and absolutely warm. Looking back on this experience, It was either divine intervention, or my body decided that it was going to freeze to death anyway, so it might as well make the final minutes as comfortable as possible.
