During filming Livi and her film crew spent a few weeks in Bali with the local people. Traveling around Bali they captured the beautiful scenery Bali is famous for, but more importantly, they learned how central culture and traditions are in everyday life. For the Balinese, life is a celebration. Each morning the Balinese are seen giving offerings; this is one of the ways they celebrate life. Livi notes that for Balinese, music and art are part of life. In Balinese life there are several important celebrations such as one's birthday, adulthood, marriage, and even when one passes away. Beyond those central ceremonies, there are numerous others encountered almost daily when traveling around Bali.
