While imagining this film, there were 2 main things we wanted to explore with Eddy.
The first one was the concept of being trapped. It was definitely related to our society today: almost everyone is trapped behind his screen, addicted.
We are all stuck with our smartphone, social medias, our own virtual life.
I’ve loved exploring it: how your way of seeing things changes according to your environment…
And this huge, immaculate, radiant screen attracts and blocks Eddy at the same time.
The other one came from Eddy, telling me how he sometimes loves elaborating different characters when he’s behind his phone. How he feels like having multiple personalities, making himself up.
It was then pretty cool to combine these two ideas and think about how honest we are behind those screens, those masks?
“Je me mens”
“I’m lying to myself”.
