The filming took place under special circumstances (Corona-Pandemic, relatively small team…). How was that for you?
Peculiar but nevertheless fascinating. Originally, it was planned that my character, the protagonists teacher, was only seen in the movie via zoom calls. However, once my scenes were scheduled, the lockdowns measures had already been relaxed; travel within Germany and meeting people outside of the family were once more permitted and thus, we had a change of plans and I drove to Berlin in order to film my scenes there.
We then began shooting in Marias home with a tiny team. Usually there are around 40 people on set at any given time, here it was three to four. Those being: Maria, the camera man, the sound man, and at times the camera assistant. These circumstances created a sort of domestic, intimate atmosphere on set which made it considerably easier to relax and access ones emotions when filming.
