Projection, yes. Collective process, yes. Military methods: they are the smartest to save time and remain concentrated. Lenses, gazes, sound bites, frames. â€śSilenzioâ€ť. â€śMotoreâ€ť. A little â€śDiffĂ©rence et rĂ©pĂ©titionâ€ť between the takes. Write a story, incarnate it and finally, reinvent it while editing it. Making films is violent and demanding, physically and psychologically, it is expensive and never quite enough. Making films intensifies existence, the landscape and perception, partly because the technology you are using costs and weights so much. A heaviness that will at last be transcended by the infinite visions one can get from a moving image.
