360video, Viewer vs. Visitors

When i see the discussion about 360video, VR, i guess I´m to sophiscated. I want more. One point is very intersting from Jessica Brillhart. Click on the her name for the youtube channel.
Her theory, to think by Editing not frame after frame – linear –  more in a circle. Is a great model where i working on, since I`m involved into 360video.
Ah, just I remember Jessica Brillhart says: Don`t tell your audience VIEWER, change your mind, that you change your behaviour and tell them VISITORS.
Then i looked some videos from her. I thought i will something much more different to my own work. Or I can say, I´m good. Just be back from Berlin, where I visited the 360video BERLIN MURAL FEST – click on the LInk to see the first 50seconds on my vimeo page.
My idea is to create the Murals for 360video. This means the VISITORS shall get a new perspective. Otherwise they shall visit the original. I like to create own murals in 360 space. I tell you, it is not so easy. I have to handle the workflow. Because I have to use other plug-ins. I work with After Effects and Mettle Mantra VR and Mantra Freeform Pro.
Every new software needs time to understand how it works. I´m on a good way. Let´s see where it goes.

VR & Japan, i love you

On twitter I found today this wonderful pic. Who else than the lovely japanes people will do this kind of action. It was by presentation of the VR Glasses.
Enjoy it! Would you like to sit in a tube like this? For me is the smartphone-phoby not communicative. But this is stay at home. What I like is, if we watch on a tablet VR or 360videos. And the people invite you to watch with you. Wow, what an idea for a 360video. Yes, i do it.

ChatBot and Agony

chatbot

Hi all outside there. My last direct experience without advertising and comments on this website was directly with a ChatBot. I had no access to
the financial office by my account. I looked for support and the ChatBot: Name however appearce.
At first he pleased me to build a whole sentence. Ok, I did it. Than it comes this answer like on the pic. In english it means: WHO HAS THE CHOICE, HAS THE AGONY
Hahaha some joker at the financial office 🙂 – my first reaction was i laughed and than I called directly the office.

360video about wu-shu-schule stuttgart

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.

Have great week

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.

A walk in November

I mean downtown Stuttgart is never such a strom like in Hamburg or in North Germany. We have realy never such extrem weather.

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?
