Yvette - Onbegrensd
Short fragment of Yvette one of the characters from 'Onbegrensd' (illimited, documentary 36 min, 2010)
During the research it is very important for me to ask in detail how people have an experience. I am not interested so much in telling a story about them, but that they tell the story how they perceived it. Also after I edit I often go back to the character to show the material. To ask if this is how they experience the dream, imagination or memory. How was she seeing her body? Was it form a first perspective or as if she was swimming next to it and seeing the whole body? What could she hear? To use this way of working also creates a strong bound between me and the character and helps the process to visualise their perception.
