Pain vs. comedy
"Outline is a short film that arose from various conversations with the leading actress, Anai González, about her own experiences in the world of casting. These experiences were very interesting to me. For her, they were memories full of pain and violence, but for me they were very comical experiences almost rubbing the absurdity. This contrast sparked my interest. My need to talk about this subject, in order to make this latent and silent violence in the casting world visible."
"I don't remember when Outline came up, but I do remember that many of my conversations with Anai ended with a: "we have to make a short film about this." These were situations so absurd that they had a special truth. It was reassuring to be able to use those painful experiences."
"Outline is born from the need to talk about limits. Where lies the limit for an actor? Where is the limit in casting? Where do you find the line of violence in casting? And how about the line between feeling ridiculous and feeling abused?"
"This idea about the limit, about the margins, about the dividing lines, was where we started to create the concept of the short film. And where we decided which genre to use."
