Unbelievable, one month is gone, before I write a new text. What´s going on. Nearly i finished the 360video about a Wu-Shu-School in Stuttgart. The first time i removed the tripod on the scene. It works quiet well. It is nice to develope my self in 360 workflow. you can see the latest 360video here on vimeo.
Mettle has great plugins for Ae. It works great. First time i did the effect of tiny world. It is very exciting to try out different effects. What looks good, what fits for different clips.
In the moment I’m editing the 360video material of the FRONTM3N.
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.
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
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.
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.
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?
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.
Yesterday i opened special for 360° production my new website. It is called 360storytelling.de Now i have to informe me how i installed a new theme.
Always the same trouble, if I do something not daily i have to learn it new.
I keep you informed about my experiences with 360° storytelling.
Have a nice day.
