Director Statement

I made a documentary film, and the documentary tells the story of Eva and her two cats. The owner of the two cats have loved them very much. Eva fed and played with her cats. However, I think shooting was difficult because I was shooting animals. Two cats may not like others to command them, and they are completely in accordance with their own wishes. And the most important thing is that I had to wait because I never know what have the future held. I put the camera mounted in a fixed place and started shooting. I couldn't stand beside the camera because I would affect the two cats. You can imagine, if a stranger is beside you, and he has been watching you, you will feel uncomfortable. I even got a some miniature cameras to shoot a cat's life because I needed to make a different angle. I put a few miniature cameras fixed where these cats often do activities. For example, I put the camera on the front of the bowl, so I could shoot them. Two cats like to sleep on Eva's bed, I put the camera on the bed. After a long time, I got a lot of interesting pictures. Overall, I felt very happy because I solved the difficulties. I successfully made an interesting documentary.
