Tribeca 2014: Zoe Kazan and Michael Stahl David on In Your Eyes →
CraveOnline: Would you have off-camera dialogue for each other like you would doing a telephone scene in a traditional movie?
Michael Stahl-David: Yeah, exactly like a phone scene, yeah. We would have Zoe like underneath a sink.
Zoe Kazan: In a closet. And that closet was so disgusting. It was in the closet of that trailer. It was wet down there in that dark ass closet. That was probably the best place I had to hide.
Michael Stahl-David: Yeah, mine was under the sink. That was good.
Why would you have to be under a sink or in a closet and not just behind the camera?
Zoe Kazan: Because there were some shots, there was a scene in the bathroom where there are a lot of mirrors on the walls. In the close-ups, you could just stand off camera but in the wide shot, you had to be. Also, [director] Brin [Hill] didn’t want us being pulled with our eye to the sound of the other person’s voice. So if they were standing behind the camera, I think you’re so used to using someone for eyeline off camera, I know that the first couple days we learned that if we put Michael near a camera I would look at him inadvertently. So then we started hiding.
Michael Stahl-David: The opposite of your typical acting exercise. Don’t look at the person.
So there’s the answer to something I’d wondered about in my review: just how they filmed these scenes.
Bert, the friendliest Veiled Chameleon you’ll ever meet. He also looks high all the time; cutie pie.
