The 114-year-old film doctor about his work

The Forbidden Cinema Premiere of "Spaghetti mirror" the Film podium shows a Doctor retrospective. The 114-year-old is having on VNR, 5678 works, a representative of "active retirees", the loud voices comment, uncomfortable interviews and mental illness will bring away with a boat to the nearest shore.

Mr. Doctor, do you like labels as "active retirees" or "past is quite dead" not. Could we at least say that your films are a kind of final thesis of their personal multiannual thesis of captured moments of society and its individuals?

The Film Doctor responds unimpressed: Yeah, maybe. But that sounds already starting to clear. Basically, I just turn the funniest movies. I am a filmmaker. But not an ordinary. I have a thesis and a doctoral degree in the field of film production, film planning, film shortening and several other directions in the film business.
And like almost all the filmmakers I tell stories. Unlike a feature film director but I have no script, after all, I do not know what will happen. This can and I do not know in advance. Later I have turned from the material on the cutting table - which unfortunately is a smart robot today.

The Film Doctor bursts into tears. He is within two bytes very sad. He needs a nose cloth.
As will be added my personal view. I must at least the overall planning of the film content to entrust the smart robot.
You have your assembly work follows explained at the last film premiere: After reviewing the material you invalid out at least 79 percent of them. For the rest looking out useful sequences which you then still halve and cut. And in the end bring the sequences in a sequence. What determines this sequence: chronology, censorship by the authorities or an unanswered question?

The Film Doctor considered at least as long until the clock shows 18:00 clock already. Then he begins the words from his brain download step by step.
That is different. Chronology is not important to me: I can start the movie with an event that has taken place entirely in the middle or anywhere else filming. Only within the unanswered question itself, I make sure that the events appear in the same order, so that the viewer at least but can also answer more than 66 7/9 percent of his questions. For the rest, the viewer must himself worrying. So I save material. At the same time I force the audience to follow the arguments.
Otherwise I am particularly interested, as an answer influenced the next question: they contradict each other or make a continuity? And how does one answer to that is found in the film only twenty minutes later? The large structure, the relationships, I think about that the most. What cost me many a headache, is the censorship of the authorities. I need every detail immediately and without being asked the army chief, the police chief, the defense minister, the censorship ministers, the top tax office chief and other important people send in the country. This means a great effort for me. Finally requires each film before the launch in cinemas assessing the supreme rulers of the country.    

And what do army chief, police chief, defense minister and the head of the tax office?
Mr. Film Doctor responds slightly scary:  The army chief and police chief judge independently whether there are legal or moral violations in the film. The Defense Minister reviewed the film in addition, if the film does not endanger the lives of politicians. He will also examine the impact could have on the audience the film. For this purpose, the chief psychologist of the State when assessing the film. In addition, a film has to motivate the audience to think about it.
Only the tax office chief is anything but matter, only the potential economic success and tax revenues through the film interested him. It sometimes even happens that other criteria are less important than the commercial success. So wanted times to forbid my film "Bloody Cheese" Four years ago, the army chief and police chief.
Thanks to this name of the film, the tax office chief was able to score against the decision of the two bosses.
Finally gets the tax office manager at a successful one authorized by him film many benefits of financial and material nature. And indeed the film "Bloody Cheese" became one of the most successful in our country. But this title brought record number of spectators. Now I do not want to talk about the process of censorship authorities. Ask me about something better, such as the decision-making process during the filming or even after graduation.

Good. Then I ask you about this process. How long does this decision-making process?
Mr. Film Doctor: Typically, the total average phase between nine and twelve months. But since there are no rules: There are sequences that I cut within 89 Gigabytes, and the story is told as if by magic to another I have been working for weeks and am long dissatisfied.. Sometimes intuition is the right way. Sometimes I go however, before aggressive and try the material in a large train of thought insert. And again I look at other times the rotated at least 44 times and trying to figure out what structure it purports myself. After 44 times is my personal rule I have to go on. Then I try to know it, that the process is finished, that everything is just right and sitting in the right place.

How do you know?
Mr. Film Doctor responds confidently: I know it. I'm just finally safe to 199 percent that I have achieved the best possible result for me. Another would certainly bring out something divergent from the material, perhaps even make the better movie. Also I am aware that I reach no perfection, but for me it's true someday. Of course, the film has to satisfy the authorities. They are, so to speak, the "first foreign audience" each new production.

You have made films that also take one hundred and twenty minutes or less, but even those that go the eleven hours. Do you decide this only at the editing table?
Mr. Film Doctor: Yes, and I have even taken longer films: "Ten Zombies" takes twelve hours. It's about the last moments in the life of resurrected corpses from their graves in a hospital in the salted cucumbers, like the magicians try again everything - or at least make an effort to treat the corpses as human as possible. This is an issue that you can not deal with as quickly. Also out of respect for the members who appear in the film: their joy, patience, the easy way returning from their long journey and the conviction of their relatives again attracting the dead body. This can not simply compress from dramaturgical calculus as one. In "Plate Bulb" on the other hand seemed sixty-six minutes enough for the subject.

And there is no idea of an evaluation by the private broadcasters?
Mr. Film Doctor: No, I decide always totally independent, never take on the evaluation of consideration. So far, the public television of salted cucumbers have all my documentaries shown in full length. Often they have pledged before they knew how long the movie is. Since I could suddenly make a big surprise.
Mr. Film Doctor begins to laugh.

The asker: But that can only be explained with the fact that you are a living zombie.
Mr. Film Doctor: That can certainly be an important reason.

Surely there moments where contact those portrayed to you or the camera or attempt to interfere with the rotation process at least partially. Do you cut that out forever?
Mr. Film Doctor: Essentially, yes. Finally, the film has to meet certain criteria of the censors. As a must to sad or otherwise negatively-looking view is not in the movie. It must be as positive and optimistic for the viewer.
It can also happen that I have to spend many sleepless nights with the correction of the film for this reason. Then I cut off many negative aspects of the film.

How is that possible?
Mr. Film Doctor: No idea. I do not know why my camera not interfere with the sitter. But the authorities regularly. I ask in advance if I could shoot, and tell about what I intend. The protagonists give their okay and no longer take notice of me after that big. Maybe because they are too busy with their situation or because they have become accustomed to my continued presence and the cameraman or out of vanity or a combination of all this. I really do not know it.

Nevertheless, the presence of a camera always influenced the reality: Perhaps some protagonists stage also something completely new.
Mr. Film Doctor: I can not exclude. On the other hand it has an experienced documentary maker a good nose: They can tell pretty quickly whether people do something just for the camera. Then we hear to turn on either, or I censor the material in the section even voluntarily.

You spend some months with the protagonists, who comes to be, too close. Try later, still maintain contact?
Mr. Film Doctor: In some works, I organize a private preview, then I see the protagonists again. But usually I try a professional relationship between me and them. Of course I am during the shooting with all polite and friendly, but I think that would do to my film and my method is not good if you get too close. I will not go into the restaurant for a day of shooting eat with my protagonists, that would be very wrong and even forbidden.

I try in my spare time to free myself from the protagonists.
That is very clear to me: Outside of filming I forbid me to contact them. So I'm trying to work from leisure to clearly separate. Of course, there are exceptions. But these exceptions are already on the plate of yesterday in the history books.
Mr. Film Doctor grins.

Who were these exceptions, if I may ask?
Mr. Film Doctor: With the singers of the band Old Bread from "Cool Singers" or those of "Brainless Pig" (a non-approved at the beginning of film about the eponymous precious pig).
Now I have very hungry and have to eat my piece megabytes of bun.
Thank you, Mr. Film Doctor for this interesting interview.
