Only went to the desert to finish writing the story, but decided to use the gopro hero 3 action cam I was playing with to make a trailer for what I wrote to hopefully generate interest.
I shot in the Wirikuta desert region of San Luis Potosi, Mexico while writing the screenplay based on a true story. After completing the screenplay and while holed up in a simple adobe room I'd rented for the duration, I decided to use the small GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition that I'd brought specifically for time-lapse sequences, but wanted to experiment and shoot a movie trailer for the script I'd just completed.
This is the same location where the movie will be shot, but this is an approximation of the mood the film would have. I simply used what I had available and made due.
