We shot this movie in just three weeks on a minimal budget, our goal was to achieve a documentary feel for this comedy that could be described as an autofiction about a family. The whole camera, grip and light crew was composed of... two persons (and sometimes an additional B-Camera): my assistant and me. The idea beeing to embrace the low-budget situation, the restraints in time or choices and the resulting imperfections in light, focus or framing in order to, hopefully, get a very lively movie.
