BEING THE DIRECTOR  - MAINTAINING YOUR VISION WHILE SWIMMING WITH SHARKS  (whole)

  1. “Being the Director – Maintaining Your Vision while Swimming with Sharks” – is an artistic research project and video essay where director and former artistic research fellow Trygve Allister Diesen quite literally interviews himself and scrutinizes his own work and process to study the role of the film and TV director. Starting with the core question «is it possible to maintain a personal, artistic vision in an art form as collaborative and commercial as film and television», he soon realizes that he has no clear definition of what «director’s vision» really is. «Swimming with Sharks» is a personal video essay about Diesen’s work and process as director/creator on the hard-boiled TV-series Torpedo, and the American feature film Red (Sundance 2008), juxtaposing his video diary with footage from the set,
    and interviews with key staff and collaborators, who often see things rather differently than the director. Diesen also interviews international capacities like Danish director Per Fly and character actor Brian Cox, using their input as a sounding board to his own ongoing reflection.

    Video essay made as part of TRYGVE ALLISTER DIESEN'S doctoral work at the Norwegian Film School.
