During his visit, he mmets people form his childhood past and Ana, a 30 year old woman who manages the Hotel.

The inspiration of the story:
The story was born in search of being able to show secluded and remote places which gives us some sensation and feeling that these places are not only to reconcile and bury our memories but also can inspire us and give us hope.
Over the year we were given the opportunity to shoot a short film, thanks to auspices and the help that local people fave us. Our film, "East Water" touches the idea that I think is relevant to me, "Letting go". Which is something that we often do, not only with people, but algo with places, things, moments and memories.
We believe that it is important to be able to foresee and visualize places like these in our world, places that also suffer abondonment and isolation, places that give us great stories as well as good memories. Places that live from nature, where man has not dared to fight against it but learned to co-exist, places where the strenght of nature is everything and "East Water" is tied to that romantic idea, Mother Nature is always a greater power thant us human beings.
Stages and development:
After developing and producing the film we encounter the next star. The Post Production.
The post - production stage is crucial part in making the film, because this is the stage where everything comes together. Giving life to the images we shot, correcting our small errors, creating sound environments and giving life to the image through sound, making sound almost like a character, and later making the films ready yo showcase it to the world. To give a better explaination.
The imagen Post Production: In this stage we focus on giving a background to the Images we shot of the films thtough color, correcting the color of each element in order to give it a meaning and a life. How everything generally happens in natural environments is very important by highlighting these landscapes.
The Sound Post Production: In this stage we focus on giving a background on the sound. Where Foleys are created, dubbing is done to improve the voice recording, sound environments are created, etc; In order to give a creative root to the sound of the film and in the case of "East Water", sound becomes a protagonist, since through sound we want to creat the "voice" of nature.
The Music Composition: In this stage we focus on composing music for the film, so that it enhances the emotional quotient of certain scenes and moments. Here we work with a Music composer, Musical performers and a recording studio.
The Distribution: By reching this stage "East Water" is completely finished, we focus on making it visible to the world. How? In our cse, through film festivals. We would like to send "East Water" to different film festivals which give us the possibility that more people can see it. As filmmakers, we care that the film we make should be seen and that in turn it can have a trajectory.
