As Salazar later defined, the intimate scale of Undone‘s manufacturing – with very particular units used to realize the pre-rotoscoped performances – led to her briefly having a little bit of an existential disaster.

But the approach we shoot, it’s totally a lot a arrange like this. And it is like black-box theater. So you are capable of simply preserve going.

I by no means sat down, by no means used my forged chair, by no means messed round on my telephone. Like, that simply wasn’t what I wished to do both. I actually wished to maintain this factor alive. So we shot all day. I nonetheless had the bruise make-up on my face. I went house, I’ve three canines and I’m like, I gotta stroll these canines. So I’m strolling. I’m on a avenue, there is no lights. I’m on this whole darkness and I’m simply enthusiastic about the day, and all of the feelings we went by means of. We had simply carried out the car crash scene. I had been crying after which I’m breaking apart with this person and I’m discovering out this factor after which I’m coping with my father after which I’m coping with the charged relationship with my mom.”
“And I used to be simply so in it, and I simply had this second the place I used to be like, ‘What if Alma is actual, and I’m [the] creativeness?’ Like, I’ve been imagined.” Salazar continued. “And it actually terrified me. I do know it sounds hokey now. ‘Cause we’re on this room and it is like… But it actually did terrify me. It despatched a chill down my backbone and like I mentioned, I glanced behind that curtain simply barely and a fraction of what Alma sees. And I used to be terrified. And I did not know for a second. And then I seemed down and my canine was taking an enormous dump. And I used to be like, ‘Nah, this actual!’ This is actual, that is actual proper now. God, I’m about to stroll house with this bag of goodies! No, that is actual. But I shit you not, pun meant, it was, it actually did. And it began to occur increasingly more and extra. We all have that Truman Show second. Several instances in our, am I the, am I? ‘Cause you do not actually, you do not know.”
