Insights from talented Filmmakers

Eric Simonson

“As a stage director, I always wondered what it was like to make a film. Theater is more of an actor’s art. Cinema is more of a director’s art. I want to try my hand at it”.

Robin Rippmann

“The weird thing about motion capture is that you have to think in terms of specific actions that you want to record, rather than shots. The framing doesn’t happen until a much later stage”.

Fabricio Heider

“The institutional corruption led me to the conclusion that filmmaking had to be independent. The hardest challenge was the research of new solutions to create all the necessary equipment and shoot”.

Guillaume Levil

“You have to understand the story, but in fact you understand it with your own energy. That is to say that you see the film you want, not the film the director wants.”
