Godoy about Godoy:
„Every time I start a project, I have the same feeling: here is a new puzzle to assemble. I’ve been given a box with all the puzzle pieces and a general framework, although there is no complete image of the final picture. Now, all I have to do is figure out how to put it all together.
There is something magical about this process that has always fascinated me and continues to fascinate me. Sometimes I’ll spend one, two, or three days mulling over a cue, only to ‚find‘ the perfect piece in the blink of an eye. Any other piece wouldn’t fit.
Once the movie is finished, somehow, the music
appears integrated, but in reality it’s something that day after day, I worked to put each small piece into place. Sometimes, after trying try to force a piece into place, I’ll realize that it’s not the right one, although
it seemed so at first glance.
The more puzzles I accumulate over time, the more I realize there is no secret formula. This is one of the best things I like about my job. Each movie has its music, and all music has its time. For me, it’s all about piecing the two together, and enjoying the process while you’re at it.“
