#Bollywood; #NanditaDas; #CoronavirusLockdown; 'Listen to Her';

Nandita Das said that she he decided to shoot the film in lockdown, as she wanted to produce something spontaneously during trying times of lockdown.
She used her iPhone’s camera to record herself as she acted, used her old phone to record the sound separately.
She coordinated with two members of her team on Zoom who used software to be able to view the footage while she was shooting it, said Nandita and added,
“The scenes were shot in my living room as it is the best lit place in my home. However, we had to shoot over three days once we realised that the light would dramatically change by noon, becoming visibly warmer and more yellow. Once I found a steady perch for the phone to capture the perfect composition, I requested my cook, Bharat to help me. I would then run to my position, give my son instruction as he was a part of the frame, turn the audio recorder on my other phone, ask Bharat to start recording, clap to ensure that the sound and video will synch and begin to act."
Amidst all this chaos she realised, said Nandita that it was difficult to remember the dialogues I had written word for word.
She said she had to improvise these which was not very challenging because I knew the crux of what was being said.
This ordeal reminded her, she said, once again that filmmaking was after all a collaborative process.
She said that the easiest part of the process was reaching out to other professionals, some of the best in the industry who readily agreed to contribute to this film remotely in the post-production stage.
Their willingness was heartwarming, added Nandita and she was given the opportunity to collaborate with editor Srikar Prasad, the sound designer Kunal Sharma, and the music composer Sagar Deshpande.
