Polish movie "People of the White House" is online since few weeks ago. It seems you like it cause you all just let great comments about it ! That's why we met the guy behind this movie project for a quick interview to know more about him. Lukas Gabriel, director of "People of the white" tell us about the winter he spent whith talented unknown Polish riders but pretty motivated ! "People of the white house" won't be Lukas' last movie, so you better be prepared for new ones next season !
Hi Lukas, your ski movie "People of the white House" is online. How did you have the idea to make a movie ?
My adventure with the movies started in 2004, to turn into my life passion soon afer. Sometimes I wonder whether it is me who makes the films or these are the films that really make me (hehe). My aim is to devote my life to the production. However, due to a tight budget these are not yet the movies I dream about. I hope next season we will succeed in making a high-standard production .
In which places have you traveled by this winter ? which one was the best ?
This winter was all about being out of a suitcase . Moving from one place to another, changing cities, countries.... We were searching for perfect sceneries in Austria, Italia, Slovakia, Slovenia. I have to admit, that it is sort of strange that despite all of us are from Poland none of the shots were actually taken in our country.... To me the best from all the countries we travelled to was Austria, which I'm surely going to visit often next seasons.
It seems that the polish freeski scene is growing up... what is your opinion about that ?
I agree that Polish freeski scene is developing now. All the time there are new riders turning up with great potential. The number of these talented and dedicated people is growing despite many obstacles that still stand on their way in Poland. Riders you can see in "People of the white House" are bound together not only by skiing, but also by friendship and the place we all come from, whih is Zakopane.?
What is your best remind of this winter while you were working for "People of white House" ?
The most interesting situations were always happening in hotels, but maybe this should stay between You and me (hehe). Yet, absolutely breathtaking moments were when we stayed up in the mountains, and could admire all the beauty nature only wanted to show us. So many outstanding sceneries, it was amazing. I was trying to catch it all on the film, but you cannot have everything.... Still, I will never forget that....
