In this episode I am joined by Joële Walinga, director of the SXSW 2022 documentary feature “Self Portrait”. This is a brilliant experimental feature comprised entirely of footage collected from surveillance cameras, and produced with a highly unique creative process.
Throughout the interview, Joële gives us a behind the scenes look into her four-year creative workflow, which involved sifting through thousands of publicly available surveillance videos and editing them together into a meaningful feature film. She also shares invaluable creative advice for other filmmakers looking to experiment with new formats, and use their original ideas to break new ground.
