Traveling With The Wind it’s a sailing documentary that started initially from the desire to sail around the world and film the entire voyage. My wish was to make two styles of documentaries. One to cover the sailing adventure, and the other to show the people and places I visit. Unfortunately things didn’t worked out as planned, but I cannot say I regret anything.
The documentary was shot mostly on an iPhone, a GoPro and a few DSLR shots. Not exactly the way I wanted to, from a filmmaker’s point of view. The film covers mostly the first and only voyage from Miami to Cuba, a failed voyage to Mexico, and the return to Cuba and Miami.
A short voyage if you ask me, maybe a little over a thousand miles. A trip full of adventures that at times made me wonder if it’s real or I’m watching a film. Beautiful sunsets, storms, weeks with no wind, no drinking water, no food and of course no sleep. A proof to myself that if you really want something, you can do it… even if you don’t have all you need or a big budget.
