On the creative process, Simon says: “As we couldn't assemble a big team together due to lockdown, we needed a less conventional way of doing this, where all departments had to work separately - without really seeing the whole picture! We had to rely on our imagination. We went out to the empty streets of Budapest and shot camera moves without any subject, then we rehearsed movements in a park, did some motion capture, and from there we took the stay-at-home ordinances to heart - locking ourselves in for a couple of weeks and assembling all the collected data into this video. It was an intensive experience with an amazing team of talented friends, and it made our days much more bearable!”
