The challenge of this scripted narrative was to make it feel documentary. I chose to shoot the majority of the film hand-held to lend immediacy to the narrative, and make the viewer feel like they were a part of the story. Since the picture is about filmmakers making their first film, my challenge was to light and shoot both the film they were making, but to also light and shoot the filmmakers without giving away the artifice of our narrative.
