FRONTM3N

frontmen

One year later, we met us again. Last year I did a short FRONTM3N Clip 2017 for them. They are all Leadsingers, Frontman of famous 60ies Rockbands – THE SWEET | THE HOLLIES | 10cc.  In this formation they love to play famous, old songs, their own compositions.

Now i met them again. It was very nice to see them again. This time i record one song in 360degree as a test. It is not edited it needs a while.

They started a few years ago. This New Year Eve, they played in front of the Brandenburger Tor in Berlin. Let’s see what happens. If you have ever the chance to listen them, do it. In the 70ies i never heard their music, but now I like it. Of course because i know now the musicians They are real good musicians and very great people. All of them played once with Sir Cliff Richard.

Stop Trick with Barbies

The new year is very fresh. The last days i continued my experiences with stop trick. My idea is Barbies talking about daily life, politics. For this project i choos the african style Barbies. I think we have learn that the color doesn’t matter.
It was a try and erroe work. At first I wrote the dialog. Than I start with the shooting. After the first session I edited the material. After that I rewrite the dialog, tested the action of the dolls. Than i shoot the next session. And so on.
Today Thula comes and did the translation and helped me to be more consequent with the story. To be sure to follow the story line. It was amazing to work with her. Hope we do the next story soon. See it on vimeo, here

Happy New Year – Gutes Neues Jahr – Bonne Année – Feliz año nuevo 2018

Sting

The year finish in a few hours. This is fascinating – the year finishing, wow. But time is a product of the mankind. I listen Dee Dee Bridgewater – what a voice and songs.
Yesterday I saw a documentation about Sting. I was impressed how active he support Indians in Brasilia, refugees or other important topics for our societies.
This year 2017 I had the chance to shoot him at the Würth Music Festival. I stand close to him, when he did the sound check. He was a very relaxed and full concentrated musician.

Hoppenlau Parc 360 video

Hi, now I have to handle two websites. It takes me crazy. Even one is to much.
Never mind, here you find the latest 360 video.

https://vimeo.com/240974960

My research is, to find my film language for a „normal“ daily location. 360 Videos you see in amazing landscapes or special locations. But how i will show more daily surrounding, to evoke a new point of view.
Coming from documentary it is not so easy to find the right balance between location and effects. I prefere minimal effects. Now I find a way for 360 Video.
Enjoy it!

Launch of www.360storytelling.de

Now I managed it. Why the f… is the free version much eassier to handle than the pro version. I had not the time to read everything. But it is not user friendly, if you change everything how you can do it in the free version. Why? Hi dear programmers did you ever heard from usability?

360 video launch

I managed it!. It is a great feeling. Even it was two hard days. A long periode of get involved into the 360 degree video production. It started 5 months ago. I don’t know  how it started. It doesn’t matter. I started and that counts.

Now you can see everything around 360° storytelling, 360° video on this new website.

Proudly present: 360 Video

My first official work in 360 degree Video production. Nearly half a year I´m learning how to produce, how to tell a story in 360. It is very exciting to use the 360 degree space. Be curious it will come more. Now enjoy it!

you can move in the video with the mouse. The sign for moving is missing.
The first experience with uploading, converting and so on. That belongs to the workflow too.

The quality is not the best, even it shooted by 4k. It is consumer camera.
Going for the next step.
