Production journal- Zero

This week we start the compositing of Une Visite. As the project is now taking shape, I can step back from my daily struggles with the form and structure of the film. I'll review the steps which led me to this point. I'll start from the very beginning way back in 2012. 

“Une visite” is a story based on a childhood interaction I had with a very dear family member of mine. The reason I started writing this script was specifically to participate in a contest organized by SODEC, because I used to love participating in contests. It was late 2012.  

This project was chosen among the finalists, and I started working on the script with a group of six filmmakers and six mentors. My scriptwriting mentor at this stage was Marie-France Landry. 

This contest was the beginning of a long project which led me to the production of this film in 2016.
