Times runs os fast my last comments was over 2 months ago.
What´s new. Between Christmas and the New Year i start to create a comic book. Everytime i start with something new, it needs more time than i thought. It is normal. The first was my calendar. I never thought it needs so long time to create a good design. The photos are great, i shoot seagulls in Hamburg. I did the premiere color correction and decided which display window is the best. That´s all. Than it needs time to prepare the printing.
Finally i ordered a few calenders. They were great. Even i lost the 17. January 2016. The often change of the design makes it happen 🙂
What i learned was i have to start earlier, if want to sell the calendar via Internet. I have to start now, that i will finished in August! Let´s do it!
My goodness, what a pixel work! I have wonderful pics from seagulls. I thought ok, i do my first calendar. The idea was quick done 🙂 The rest needs time. Which photos, what is the theme? My daughter Janne helped me a lot. She did a first selection, i agreed and than put a few other in our folder.
The next step was the pic finishing in the freeware rawtherapee. That was a work i realy loved. It is like editing.
What I realy didn´t realized was how much work it is to do the calendar design. My aim was to write in german and english. Putting the letters of the day and the numbers in a good position, what a hell … i had nightmare about the numbers. Unbelievable. Than i spoke with both daughters, they gave me good advices, Ines is Interfacedesign. What she saw at the beginning … different sizes, not exact positioning and and and … finally i managed it with their helps. Thanks to both of you, it was amazing.
Now, i have to sell it. But where. Day over days, weeks i did a research about different performances, solutions. Finally i decide to work with a good printing company together and do a selfpublishing on demand. The rest doesn´t make sense for me.
For the next time, i have to start much earlier. That is my result of all the experiences.
The cook where we take breakfast or dinner. Sometimes we took the dinner at home, sitting on the balcony enjoyed the food and the view. The warm night wind or the mosquitos 🙁 a spray against mosquitos helped a lot.
I asked Roy the cook, if he knows some musician for another idea. The first meeting doesn´t work. The aritist don´t come. I asked Roy: Can i shoot you preparing your food. When do you start cooking? Roy answered: 6 am. Not my time, but i said: Ok, in over tomorrow i come. He doesn´t believe, i guess. When i came on wednesday at 6 am, he looked with big eyes. We enjoyed our time working together.
The film is finishe in the first editing, now sound, colorcorrectiong and final editing. Than you will see a great breakfast preapring!
Back in Germany. As usual it was a to short trip to Jamaica. Nevermind, better short than never 🙂
It was a wonderful stay by Belva we had a great time, even she got sometimes crazy with the german, who question her all the time, about the same. Sometimes she thought talking with a wall. But i get more and more information how everything works.
you have to be at home at the sunset, latest when it became dark. An it goes fast, the sunset.
This is my daily view for breakfast and dinner. A real great time and i met wonderful people.
It was great driving by bicycle to the fare. With the bike it was a few minutes around where i stayed. This morning was hard, 6:15 a.m. it was dark, still. I wake up on the bike. Than we had the TV feeds, the first was CNBS and others.
Later comes the Press Conference. It works great and a realy great team! I enjoy to work with them. Let´s see if I can upload the photos of the secret new car. Now it is published and I can publish it too.
Geschafft, mein neues Showreel endlich auf 2 Minuten gekürzt und geschnitten. Habe lange überlegt wie ich wohl all das unterschiedliche Material so gekürzt bekomme, dass der Zuschauer trotzdem einen Eindruck von meiner sehr unterschiedlichen Arbeit erhält. Eine Anregung aus dem Netz, regte mich dazu an, es mal radikal zu versuchen. Der ihr Showreel dauert ca. 1 Minute 20. Dokumentarfilme brauchen eine gewisse Zeit, damit man den Inhalt versteht. Ich bin zufrieden.
Übermorgen geht es los nach Frankfurt, mal sehen wie die PK für Porsche wird. Danach noch 1 Drehtag und auf geht´s in den Urlaub. Mehr darüber und wohin demnächst hier.
Ready with my showreel. I managed it do edit it to 2 minutes. Not easy for me. Documentaryfilms needs longer that you understand what happens in the film. Finally i managed and i`m satisfied!
Over tomorrow i go the the IAA Frankfurt for the Press Conference of Porsche. Another day of shoot and than i start my holiday. Be curious where i will go.
if you are not relaxed enough. Luckily i didn´t get panic. And looked in the FAQ. What happened?
Few hours ago, i started to update WordPress and few features. Than i thought i had to do it again. I did´n read through. I had to update the network features too. What happen? I destroyed my complete website.
Of course, my last backup was not new. But the domain factory has a great Backup Sercice. THX a lot for your services. You restored my complete website. Thanks to the technicians. If you know how technic works, it is great 🙂
to keep your website updated. Now it re-encoded the older videos. In earlier time you hadn´t such good codecs. Than i have to upload and make a pic and don´t getting confused by the links.
I opened a new Menu, students & youth media project. There are a lot of my work not uploaded. The next is my work form Cape Town in South Africa.
Let´s see if it helps to start next project. There are good ideas and some contact in the pipeline. I will tell you when it comes true.
Write, contact me if you like or have any proposal for me.
