Successful director Albert Dupontel talks to Jean-Marc Vigouroux about his first experiences on set.
While he has no shortage of inventiveness when it comes to directing colourful characters, he readily admits to a lack of technique: “I had a solid film culture, but not necessarily a stage culture.
I could see camera movements, but I had no idea how to use them
Albert Dupontel is passionate about his work, but over the years he has made up for this shortcoming. His secret: “surround myself well, ask a lot of questions of professionals” And to be stubborn, to the point of transcribing a world that suits him.
“Le Créateur was supposed to take eight weeks to edit, but it took us nine months to finish. I did everything over and over again, deleting characters, turning scenes upside down and putting other protagonists back in.
Driven by a desire to express himself, a love of writing and a desire to add an extra emotional dimension through images, Albert Dupontel concludes the interview with a statement that is as simple as it is powerful, in the image of his characters: “Making films helps me live That says it all!
