"The film Evaluation came up first as a Documentary test. We both love a certain short Polish story called Strangulation Bow by Marek Hlasko. We wanted to see if it could be adaptable as a documentary screenplay which meant that we had to search for a fictional story that can happen in real life. We wanted to cast the short story's main character - a man who is a suicide addict. During our search we wrote the script until we came across Sacha Agronov. Both Sacha and us had a strong connection right away and we decided to transform the idea into a short fiction film. We considered this film as a step for us in defining and compositing our cinematic language. We saw it as a fast and direct stage at this process. This choice dictated the entire making of this film. We wrote two drafts, shot for one day and edited the final cut in a week. Our documentary project has grand scales and it is still ongoing."
"After a short casting process, we arranged two rehearsals with our actors. We decided not to share the original story with them but due to our strict timetable we told all of them to watch John Cassavetes' Love Streams as an emotional and acting range reference. The only professional member we wanted to add to our crew was our D.O.P. Guy Sahaf in order to delegate all the technical aspect so that we could be completely focus on our actors. We trusted Guy regarding the short pre-production and on set. All other crew members were friends with no training in filmmaking. Since we also were the producers we got complete control over the film and we could make all the decisions."
