“The shooting process was uniquely tailored for the conditions – I wouldn’t have the privilege of watching the takes as they happened. We would spend a lot more time discussing the narrative and these characters among us before shooting, because each take was continuous and substantially long. It was a fun, spontaneous and collaborative project to have spent the last few months on,” he said.
