"House with Pool," production still (2004)

"We play very consciously with the fact that we want to make the viewer aware of the medium in itself, or in the story- that you sort of step in and out of a story. It’s not like we want a complete absorption, and then, 'Boom, you’re out of it!' But there’s a moment when we strongly want you as a viewer- you’re in this house, around the pool. You’re fully immersed. And then there’s a moment when we go through the wall. For a moment, we want the person who’s questioning that...and then he’s back into full immersion."
