Is it possible to inhabit the desert? Can a fictitious place be inhabited? This is the exercise Jordi Colomer proposed for the project En la pampa.
He invited a men and a women who didn’t know each other and were not actors, to live certain situations in Atacama Desert, in the north of Chile. The desert became a vast scenario with multiple decorations.
For this project, CO producciones participated as executive producer. Moved to the city of Iquique (Chile), where together with Colomer organized the locations for shooting and after forming the working team (camera operator, sound technician, production assistant, still photographer, catering, driver), casting of actors and extras, rental of technical equipment, organized the trips, transportation and accommodations for the shooting. Also coordinated the postproduction (editing of sound and video and copying of masters HD-CAM).
