The shooting of the film was great. All the team tried to keep the rhythm and it was intense. Two weeks of shooting was short but we were rewarded by the efforts. Some big experience !
I think I’ve learned a lot, it was my first feature. Trying to build up and manage a team. However, I think the most important thing I learn it’s how a filmmaker must adapt his vision in front of the unexpected that he must face during the production of a film. It’s like writing a new working draft of script every day.
The film is a tribute to an old French fantasy cinema who quickly disappeared after the beginning of the French New Wave. In France it’s sometimes difficult to speak about some of this films of the 50’s, 60’s, who are not so famous and loved. For me, to make this film, it’s was a way to resurrect a part of our film history. And also, show to people that we can make a independent fantastical film in our country with a very small budget.
