Director’s statement

Glen Wood says:

In the Light is about respecting all forms of modern relationships yet finding old-fashioned romantic moments within them.

Danijel Margetić and I made In the Light out of a desire to stretch ourselves beyond of our established roles as producers, he as writer and me as director in this case.

We also had a desire to make a film that was stripped down to the most bare essentials: two actors, one location, one camera and a dynamic situation (and as little wardrobe as possible!)”
