Lucas with the Lid Off
Through Lucas With the Lid Off, the camera tracks from shot to shot in a single take. Each shot is indicated by a small, numbered frame placed before the set. As the camera approaches the set, it lines itself up with the frame to produce the shot. Using essentially 18 sets for 24 shots, with some sort of screen projection in most sets, Gondry tracks a journey through both the story of Lucas and the process of filming his short film. The movement of the camera between shots is also used as an inherent indicator of an advancement in time.
