My inspiration to write, produce and direct The Decisive Moment, was to explore the inner workings of the creative process, a combination of a cartesian inspiration and a chaotic passion for the work to be done. The French photographer, Henri Cartier Bresson, seemed to have both and the results can be appreciated in his beautiful photographs. In order to represent what I believe was his creative process, I created two characters – Henri and Yvette (also the name of a famous French photographer). Their interactions lead the audience to glimpse into a reveling decisive moment.
