In a remote corner of Europe

6´30, DV PAL, 2008

This is the second in a series of experimental films I made about an outsourced market research operation in the Balkans.

The film is based on job interviews in which applicants read text from an autocue which is sampled from job scripts and afterwards watch a film in which they see workers really using these scripts and a training session in how to use them.

The applicants take part in a kind of audition which is also an initiation into the psychological situation of the working environment.  

This experimental film practice became essential to running this business.  It was an exploration into the creative possibilities and the corresponding ethical consequences of film making in a constrained situation.
