Oak A of Sitatunga Pictures made his HTG movie debut today with Mountains: Andes, a documentary released by the Flip Brothers Studio. We invited him into The Hollywood Times office to chat about the new release.
TIMES: What made you want to write about the Andes?
OAK A: The visceral majesty of mountain ranges, and the amazement with which we have always regarded them, inspired this program. I have tried to launch a few nature-inspired documentary series insofar this has been the most successful one due to this, I suppose. Why the Andes? The blend of the aforementioned majesty, the heritage, and the inhabitants.
TIMES: What sets it apart from other Mountains?
OAK A: The inhabitants, former and present. Having been home to the Incan empire, being home to such unique creatures. With this program, we have only scratched the surface of the Andes range, even though it is figuratively overflowing.
TIMES: How did you go about choosing the narrator?
OAK A: When selecting a narrator, I wanted to select someone who conveys the essence of the topics. Antonio Banderas, although not hailing from an Andean nation, has the emotional breadth to portray mystique. This having been said, the accent certainly doesn’t hinder things!
TIMES: Will Mountains become a series?
OAK A: Oh, how I wish! In all seriousness, yes, there are scripts in the pipeline.
TIMES: What other spots do you want to spotlight?
OAK A: I cannot reveal much, but the next documentary will not have been the first program filmed in the topical region. Not nearly. Both Gladiator and Star Wars, among many, were partially filmed there. We have concepts for mountain ranges both notable and obscure, and on ranges on every continent.
TIMES: Anything else you want to tell us about Mountains: Andes?
OAK A: Please enjoy; just so long as we inform and entertain with this series, we feel we have accomplished all that we intended.
