How and when was the Soft project born?
We actually never intended on doing another movie after “GLUE”. We were looking for a special mini-piece to create, therefore went to Japan two winters ago. Since the whole thing didn’t turn out the way we hoped for, we knew that’s not it – so we talked ourselves into adding more ideas, segments and time to eventually create “soft”.
How was the collaboration and synergy between you and Christian Haller born?
It came step by step. We’ve been friends for a good while and at some point started working together – “Memoires Memoires” was our first common piece and from there We started to see the potential in each other – for me, he is not just a snowboarder, rather than a creative thinking person that uses a snowboard to express certain things.
What is Christian’s role in the movie?
Well, first of all he’s a rider. But more than that, he produces, creates the whole ideas with me and gives very detailed feedback and inputs to pretty much every aspect in the process of making the film.
Tell me something about the chromatic choice of the shots. They are incredible.
I think that compliment goes to our colorist Yves Vallaster. He’s a top notch feature film colorist that we were lucky enough to work with. Together with him I tried to apply the matching color-feel to the existing mood of the segment.
