Nas Correntes de Luz da Ria Formosa, along with London Brief,
represent liberating breaks from the economic pressures and constraints
of the film business, and are a direct effect of the existence of a
new media capable of extraordinary aesthetic and technical range for
utterly minimal financial costs. Need I say neither film would have
been funded by the usual production sources and would not exist if done
in a media which required the kind of financial resources the same works
would have incurred if done on film.
LUZ was edited on a Pentium II based computer with Adobe Premiere editing,
and a Miro DV300 DV card. Its production budget was well under $500.
