Leap Before You Look


From director Stephane Goldsand, Leap Before You Look is a deep documentary short that tells a story about a couple’s opposing feelings on having children. Faced with his wife’s desire to become a mother, the filmmaker goes on a quest to find out how people decide to have kids and identify the sources of his own hesitation. What emerges is an intimate story, peppered with humor and poignancy, where memories and present moments converge in an effort to redefine a couple’s future. Leap Before You Look is a first-person documentary short that combines various storytelling styles, including vérité, interviews, narration, animations and family archival material.

Here is what Stephane said – non-lineal interactive narratives – a very quirky content selection – a documentary and art video magazine – diverse scenes based on animated GIFs
