Filmmaker: Speaking of running around the islands naked…there is a lot of nudity in the film—. All of the dialogue when people are walking by naked was gone, so the movie made no sense at all. Filmmaker: The movie must have been something like ten minutes long!
How do you put your principal actors at ease when they have to play so many of their scenes with no clothes on? Kleiser: Well, we were in an atmosphere where everyone on those beaches was naked, so that made it easier.

In the beginning the actors were a little skittish, but then they were in the environment doing dialogue scenes with naked people walking all around them, and that loosened them up. Kleiser: A lot of their scenes are improvised — I just gave Peter and Daryl ideas and let them go. Filmmaker: Getting back to the nudity thing, not only do you have a lot of nude scenes with your principals, but the extras are naked through most of the movie. Filmmaker: The movie gets a lot of texture from those extras, as well as the documentary shots of life around the island.
Kleiser: A lot of that footage was shot by Peter Collister, who had worked on Blue Lagoon as an assistant to Nestor and is now a big director of photography. He appears in the movie too — I used a lot of the crew in the movie in small parts. Filmmaker: You also have that actor from Spetters , Hans von Tongeren, in a small role. Kleiser: That was a total coincidence. Then after the movie, he killed himself in the same way that his character did in Spetters — he rode a wheelchair in front of a truck or something. Kleiser: We had to use donkeys — they were our grips and our Teamsters.
We were also moving back and forth between islands; at one point we took a ship and filmed scenes on it along the way. All of the places where we were shooting came from my initial writing — I did a scout while I was working on the screenplay and wrote all those places in. Filmmaker: Were your shots compromised by the terrain at all? In other words, did you have to modify your compositions according to the limitations of where you were shooting? Kleiser: Just the opposite. Kleiser wisely grasps that his setting is at least as important as his story and constructs his story to take maximum advantage of the fact.
