Â¨The problem with a shot like this, if you want to know, is getting it done.Most of us begin with a clichÃ© – not always, but most of the time -and thatÂ´s fine, but you have to look at it from all sides and clarify it.
So you start with the idea of discovery……
…Showing a mountain without the window, without anything.
A torn curtain
Then you ask yourself, but why?
It will inhibit the viewerÂ´s imagination instead of opening it up and you say to yourself:
Â¨yes, after having filmed Mount Etna, Mount Saint Victoire, why add another one?Â¨
And so you renounce, slowly.
Then one fine day…
One fine day you realise that itÂ´s better to see as little as possible.
You have a sort of…reduction, only itÂ´s not a reduction – itÂ´s a concentration and it actually says more.
But you donÂ´t do that from one day to the next. You need time and patience.
A sigh can become a novel.Â¨
