The instrumental track that runs throughout the film was written for the ocassion.Compañía
It was later remixed for the opening theme to my Writing Workshop podcast.
A team of Audiovisual Communication students from the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos in Madrid shot their own remake of this short film under the title “Blanca” (click the link to watch on YouTube). Other teams have also requested autorization for further remakes, but this is the only completed project we’re aware of.
