Xeyyam Abdullayev talks about White Blood


MIFS: Where did the idea for the film come from?
The idea of the film was based on the real case ahppened before in Azerbaijan. We just have put it to our plot within using the nomadic family.

MIFS: How much did the project change from concept to final edit?
There have been some project changes since it started, even from post production. For example, there are some differences at the beginning as well as at the end of the shooting process within putting in some additional changes. But the main idea was kept.

MIFS:Where there any challenges during production?
One of the problems during production was to find an actress who was able to show her breast because of mentality. As well it was some kind of challenge to work with animals; to tame the goat during childbirth wasn't so easy.

MIFS: With the film completed, what has been the most rewarding thing about the whole experience?
In general, every film production brings positive experience and teaches us a lot. But talking the White Blood (Ag Qan) production, we would say that in contrast to using professional cast we have been worked with non-professional actors and actresses for this time that was a kind of rewarding thing from the whole experience. White Blood screens on Nov 9th as part of the 14th Annual Milwaukee Short Film Festival at 7pm in the Lubar Auditorium, MAM.
