Behind the scenes

" That was the very first time I held a camera - in my entire life!

I had no clue how to make a film, but I wanted to give it a shot. Having left the school four years before, I remembered a girl from another class who became a model. I asked her if she'd be interested in this project, and she said yes! Totally incredulous to me at that time. It felt so weird saying that I made a film.

We had so much fun shooting it that I ended up with a lot of footage that didn't make any sense. It was almost impossible to put together in a coherent film. That's when I learned the magic of editing. It was like a massive 3D puzzle where each piece belonged to a different puzzle altogether. I had to reverse clips or mirror them in order to create a film that somehow made sense. "
