Jeanne Lapoirie

“I like the freedom that zoom lenses provide : being able to slowly zoom in during a shot, being able to change focus quickly without having to wait for a change of lens, and even being able to change focal lengths within a shot if needed, in function of the shot’s events. That gives a documentary-like aspect to the film, and you can stick with the focal length you’ve chosen, but if something happens unexpectedly, you’re ready for it. And as I’ve already said with regard to my previous films, I like the unexpected things that can happen during shooting and I want to be ready to capture them.”
