you[see]me tells the story of a young woman's departure. Her interaction with the person across from her is experienced through their own visual language (quite literally). Although her journey is inevitable, there is a lot to say. They will have to let their eyes speak.
you[see]me was filmed using a custom light installation built specifically for this film. The installation is made out of a heavy steel frame spanning 1,5m diagonally. It holds 265 individually controlled light bulbs around a small hole that fits the lens of the camera, essentially creating the world's most complex ring-light.
