The original idea for “Tamgu” came from two things: a book-object by Isabel where the general concept was present, and live model drawings by Luis that expanded the aesthetics of the film.

After defining the general structure, we spent several months trying to achieve the feeling we were looking for, improving the integration of the different techniques, the editing, the camera movements, the visual language, the color palette, etc.

For the pattern of the fabrics, we explored many possibilities because we had quite precise ideas of what we wanted to say, such as the chest on the alarm clock representing the fear of aging, the pressure on women due to the “biological clock”, or more generally the social mandate to be productive. But at the same time we didn’t want it to be didactic, leaving mystery and space to interpret the patterns.
