Spillum: How did you get inspiration for this scene? Jo: As you might have noticed, I really like mirrors. Many of my sets include a mirror somehow :) I think this idea I have in my mind for a long time. First I was thinking about a place with big mirrors around me, but that would have been difficult to achieve. So finally this came into my mind.
Spillum: What were you trying to achieve with this scene? Jo: Reflection of broken mirrors :)
Spillum: Did you have a long and tedious shopping excursion? No, by the time the idea has born, I knew where I can buy cheap mirrors and black sheets.
How did you prepare the set? 1 day before the shooting with Tamas, we went to the location to prepare the mirrors, so the next day, on the shooting day, we did not have to loose time with that.
Why did you choose to film in that exact situation? Because of the dark, black background, it was ideal for the scene.
What problems did you have? It was very difficult to break those mirrors. We had a lot of pieces which we could not use. And during the shooting, I had to be careful with the broken mirrors.
Fishnets were an interesting choice. Why? I think simple, casual or romantic cloths would have not matched with this set.
Thanks Jo! It was great chatting with you and it was good to learn a little bit about how you produced this scene :)
