thanks for the last few years! You are great people and I really appreciate that. I know I haven't been around much in the last 2 years and you might have noticed that I started to work in a not blog-related field. I want to show you some parts of my recent work.
Actually not the parts I earned money with, but the ones I was part of because I love my job and I work with very lovely and talented people and whenever we don't work to pay our rent, we continue working to satisfy our inner child (or demon, you never know).
In May 2014 I decided to produce an audio play. After years and years working in film business I needed an unknown challenge. I had a great but very sophisticated idea, talked to a friend, Flo, who also happens to be a director and we decided to just do it. We decided on an easier idea and I wrote the first draft of the play. It's nothing great, although it is very personal. In the cast you find some of our favorite actors, aka friends :). We went to the studio for a weekend (drinking lots of vanilla coke) and recorded and mastered the shit out of our script and material.
Here you can listen to the audio play: HOLD THE LINE (german)
Last summer, after a few weeks of shooting in the mountains I felt pretty burned out but one of my closer friends was working on this. He asked me for my professional support and this is what we accomplished:
Thanks to this project I even found a few new friends. I met Anna, the 1st AD, at a party and she told me she'd like to work in this position once to try it out. Well, I recommended her as a substitute for me and she is so great I'm really proud of her.
Before this project I have heard a lot about the co-director, Markus, but somehow we never met. It was love at first sight. We simply understood each other and it was great fun to meet up and talk talk talk and when we had to leave we continued conversing via text message. It was so helpful and funny. Big work-love, seriously!
Last week I worked on a Music Video for a viennese a cappella duo. My friend Elias, the director, asked me if I wanted to be the art director. Well, I didn't have ANY experience in this field but it sounded like fun. Said and done. I love my team. It was sooo exhausting, hardly any sleep for a few days in a row but the girls Rhina, Sarah, Constanze and Flora were incredible.
We had to build a wall from scratch on a very low budget and I have to say, Nic, whom I just got to know on this project, did a great job. We were both totally tired and our plans were so stupid but together be built this f$%* wall and you can see it here:
The video will hopefully be released soon and I am totally looking forward to it because I'm absolutely sure it will look amazing. UH-MAZING!
