"I came up with the idea of the film because of all the terrible events with psychiatric people that recently happened in Belgium and the Netherlands. Mentally ill people are identified and within the hour they have killed someone. The question I had with this topic was: how is this possible? Don’t they know they are dangerous? These questions were the starting point for my film."
"I wrote the script together with screenwriter Philip Corsius. Philip immediately loved the idea of this miscommunication between patient and caregiver. The point was to make it as sarcastic as possible but not to make fun of the situation. The audience has to judge what they have just watched themselves."
"Coen Leuven was the DOP on this short. I have worked with Coen multiple times. The great thing about him is that he thinks as a director but prefers to handle the camera. We talked about the script and Coen had some critical notes, which made a better script. Coen made beautiful shots that fit the style of the film. Especially the end scene is breathtaking."
"For the production I had help from Barbro Gulikers who knows the area, knows what to do, basically knows her 'film set' stuff. The rest of the cast and crew is a mix of Flemish and Limburgian people. It was a great team to work with. We filmed three days during which we stayed on schedule, made a great film and had a lot of fun. In the Euregion it is such a blessing that you can mingle with different cultures, locations, etc. There are some professional and hardworking people just around the corner and many of us don't know that."
