Initial concept started in 2005 when I was in Granada. I was surprised there was no lm that captured the true realistic rites-of-passage of a young study-abroad student. I felt there was a need to tell this story and over the last three years I have visited Granada many times and have written over 20 drafts of the script.
I wanted to keep the script as authentic and real as possible and therefore I wrote all the scenes of the script at the various scene locations in Granada. This unorthodox method has allowed me to keep the script authentic, as well as helping me to location recce and storyboard at a very early stage.
