An idea born from nostalgia
"A friend of mine recently let me drive his Tesla. Immediately I was overwhelmed with a sense of futurism. When I stepped back into my own car - a diesel - it felt prehistoric. Like a loud, shaky monster. Having experienced the future of automotive, it dawned on me how most of us with non-electric cars are living in nostalgic times. The idea for this film was born that day."
Writing the script
"Usually, in my case, these things take a lot of time. But this one was written in one afternoon. The idea was so clear, there's no dialogue, and the whole thing is so 'tiny', that it only took a couple of hours. I wrote it at home. I did two drafts. The first one didn’t have an ending. It was just the mechanic running away. After having written de script I started the project's production. Of course, a couple of weeks before shooting, I made a very detailed shot list with the DOP. And we talked a lot about color and lighting."
